Details of each of the 4 properties are here:
Main house: 105 m2
A main home with large, fitted kitchen ( 27m2), cosy living room with Charentaise fireplace (36m2 max) and large log burner. A door to a terrace with newly-built portico has views over the flower meadow and countryside.
The landing leads to two double bedrooms. Bedroom one (10m2) is a beamed room that has views over open countryside and there is a large ensuite bathroom with double shower, basin on antique washstand and WC. A useful office/dressing room (10m2) leads off this bedroom. Bedroom 2 (16m2) is also beamed and has a wooden floor. The en-suite bathroom comprises a large shower, WC, basin and storage.
Gite 1: 64m2
Flexibility of this property means the inter-connecting lockable door to the adjoining gîte ‘Tournesol’ could be opened to accommodate a larger family. The owners have added additional insulation between the two properties to enhance privacy. This attached gîte has a downstairs layout of 38m2, including a rustic kitchen with a range of appliances and a beamed living/dining room.
French doors lead to a private side garden with outdoor furniture and parasol. Two bedrooms are on the first floor, one of which is currently a family room (11m2) with three single beds, the other is a pretty double bedroom (9m2).
A laundry room for guests use is housed in a stone building and includes washing machines and space for a fridge/freezer.
Gite 2: 30 m2
A short walk across the gardens takes you to the second gite, ‘La Petite Maison’. A private garden area leads into the open plan beamed living room (21m2) with a Charentaise fireplace and kitchen area with appliances, again decorated in rustic style. Upstairs there is a beautiful double bedroom (13m2) leading to an en-suite shower-room with shower, basin and WC.
Gite 3: 77m2
Decorated in the shabby chic yet contemporary style, the third house ‘Hibou’ is ideal for a larger family and comprises an open-plan kitchen with all appliances, living room and dining area extending to 48m2. A dining table seats six people. The living area allows guests to relax with a drink while watching TV or playing games. French doors lead to the private garden with a gazebo and tables and chairs.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms; Double bedroom 1 (12m2) with views over the gardens and pool is fitted with chic French country-style wardrobes. The second, twin bedroom (10m2) has a high ceiling and a built-in wardrobe. The master bedroom (9m2) has a window overlooking the gardens and a built-in rustic wardrobe, while the en-suite bathroom incorporates a WC and washbasin. A family bathroom really does have the ‘wow’ factor, decorated with antiques including an original French-style deep bath, an antique mirror as well as a contemporary shower unit.
A barn (38m2) acts as a workshop with mezzanine above (24m2) and could be developed into further accommodation, if required.
The beautiful paved pool area looks onto the attached field and the large pool (6m x 12m) is fitted with a safety alarm. Terracing around the pool offers guests (and the owners) plenty of room to sunbathe and relax under the parasols.
Parking for guests is in a separate car park, plus space outside the gîtes.
Well-maintained grounds include lawns, flower-beds, a wild-flower meadow, an in-ground pool and children’s play area. A charming chicken coop keeps the laying hens happy throughout the year.
The property is situated in idyllic countryside, a short drive from the bustling market town of Civray. Nearby Savigné with its range of shops, bars and restaurants is just 4.5km away, or a 15 minute bicycle ride.
