This pretty 2-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.
The monastery 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 property is an apartment on the first floor of the main block, overlooking the central courtyard and pool. The accommodation feels contemporary, light and airy.
The main living area is open-plan and has large windows running the length of each side of the apartment. There are 2 double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom and dressing room.
There is a total of 105m2 of habitable space and the room dimensions are as follows:
Living room (47m2)
Bedroom 1 (15m2)
En suite bathroom (5m2)
Dressing room (3m2)
Bedroom 2 (14m2)
Bathroom 2 (8m2)
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 over 2K 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.
