Courtyard House in a Historic Hamlet
Courtyard House is a converted ancient dwelling in a historic rural hamlet that we have lovingly restored over the last few years, whilst trying to retain its original character and history.
The house has been rated as a 3 Star Property in France.
Inside, it is very spacious with lots of natural light and is furnished to the highest standard for 7 guests. A perfect base for exploring the Vendee and its history - or simply to relax and enjoy rural France and it's Atlantic coastline.
The house is located near the village of Sigournais and its medieval château. The nearest large shopping centre is 10 minutes away in Chantonnay, although there is a small supermarket in Sigournais where you can buy virtually everything that you might need and this is only 5 minutes away.
The Vendee is renowned for its excellent micro climate - as much sunshine as the Cote d'Azur - which usually means 5 to 10 degrees hotter than the UK.
The main entrance to Courtyard House is via an external door that leads through one of the ground floor bedrooms. From here, you head upstairs to the large open plan lounge and kitchen. The lounge has kept its original features - with exposed stone walls and wooden beams throughout. There is plenty of seating on the comfy sofas and the dining table comfortably seats 7 guests.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons and the private courtyard has a dining table for up to 8 guests, plus a barbecue for al fresco dining.
This property has two ground floor bedrooms - one with a double bed and the second one with two single beds (a third single bed can be added if required). There is also a sofa bed in the lounge for two further guests. The house is laid out with the bedrooms on the ground floor and living room & kitchen on the first floor - this is perfect for sleeping in the summer, as the bedrooms stay lovely and cool due to the thick stone walls.
There are two bathrooms - one is an en suite to the twin bedded room on the ground floor and the other, on the first floor, has a bath with overhead shower, sink and toilet. There is a separate WC as well.
There is roadside parking just beside the house in this quiet street.
Please note that this house is not suitable for people with limited mobility.
