Monsieur’s parents bought this old logis Vendéen when he was six. Years later, researching the history of the house, he found his family had owned it in 1670! Framed in the hall, Madame’s family tree goes back to the 14th century. Both are warm, welcoming and not at all grand and the old house is full of personal touches: Madame painted the breakfast china and embroidered the beautiful tablecloths. Vast bedrooms have peaceful views and quantities of fresh and dried flowers. The suite is ideal for a family, the huge grounds hold two pretty ponds (unfenced) and a barbecue: you may picnic here. Wonderful all round.
