This delightful 1-bedroom apartment sits within a converted Monastery in the centre of the delightful market town of Vouvant. There is a large communal pool and 6 acres of private riverside grounds. The shops and restaurants in Vouvant are a few minutes walk.
‘Le Monastere’ was converted into a series of cottages and apartments in 2004. The conversion has kept much of the original character of the ancient building, whilst introducing a bit of contemporary luxury. The complex has an excellent reputation locally and properties here don’t come up for sale very often.
The apartment is on the first floor of the main building. The high ceilings, large open-plan living area and balcony give the apartment a contemporary loft-style feel. Originally, the apartment formed part of the chapel and much of the original architecture has been retained, including some of the stained glass.
The main living area is very spacious and currently has a comfortable seating area and dining table. Also on this level is the bathroom, kitchen and utility room. The double bedroom is on the mezzanine level.
The communal pool (heated) and large riverside gardens are immaculately maintained, making this is the perfect ‘lock and leave’ holiday home. There is an annual service charge of just under 4K Euros which covers all the maintenance.
The medieval town of Vouvant is literally on the doorstep. The town has a good selection of shops, restaurants and an excellent weekly market. Vouvant is officially classified by the French government as one of the most beautiful villages in France.
Many outdoor sports are available locally including tennis, golf, horse riding, boating, walking, kayaking, cycling and paragliding. Thanks to the effects of the Gulf Stream, the region enjoys the highest number of sunshine hours on the Atlantic coast and that, coupled with its glorious sandy beaches, makes it the perfect holiday destination.
