Stunning Longere – Plenty of Charm & Character
Dating in part from 1780 and with links to the French revolution, this beautiful “longere” style home is the former farmhouse belonging to the local historical “Logis”. Today it benefits from having been renovated to provide comfortable living space of 3 bedrooms all with ensuite facilities and a studio style annexe for further independent space. The property is available with approximately 15,000m2 of land including some paddock space suitable for horses or livestock, and some useful outbuildings. The house is connected to a fosse drainage system that the owners understand to conform to current guidelines. Heating is by way of an oil fired boiler that has been recently installed.
The home is situated in a peaceful spot on the edge of a small village and is walking distance to a superb and locally renowned restaurant with bar and wine cave. A full range of shops, supermarket and local weekly market are available less than 5 minutes drive away at Ste Hermine.
There is much to do and see close by in the local area including the beautiful forest and lakes at Vouvant and Mervent, the stunning sandy beaches of the Vendee coast line, La Rochelle at just 45 minutes and the highly entertaining Puy du Fou park with its laser light and firework shows.
