Charming little detached cottage, once a barn now converted into a cosy holiday home for two, next to the owners' home on the outskirts of a nice village without shops. Single storey open plan living space has exposed stone walls, tiny but well equipped kitchen area (dishwasher, microwave), table/chairs and lounge area with 2 sofas, woodburner and tv/dvd (English channels). Attractive sleeping area with king size bed (duvet) and doors to shower and wc. Outbuilding with shared washing machine and tumble dryer. Freezer. Electric heating. Lovely covered patio with garden furniture & bbq. Shared enclosed garden (one area private to holiday home guests) with hammock. Free bikes (1 male/1 female) & helmets. No smoking. The Pool: 8m x 4m with constant depth of 1.35m (ladder into water). Fenced, alarmed and heated, open 1 May to 30 Sept, weather permitting. Shared with owners.
A perfect spot to relax in peaceful rural surroundings (a small cattle rearing farm 500m away) with lots of walks and cycle paths nearby. Shops, amenities and Friday market in Melle (5k), a 'petite cité de caractère' known for its silver mines and Romanesque churches. Day trips could include Niort, Cognac, Poitiers (Futuroscope), La Rochelle and a boat trip on the calm waters of the Green Venice.
