The property is situated in the beautiful, relaxing, rural hamlet of Bas Nueil opposite the ruins of the 11th Century Benedictine Priory of Saint John.
Immediate access to wildlife, walks, cycling and bird-watching, fishing in the nearby canal (2 minutes walk), rivers and lakes and you are assured of a warm welcome for wine-tasting at any of the local vineyards.
3km away is St Leger de Montbrillais with a baker, butcher, post office and hair-dresser. Shops, restaurants, bars and cafes and bustling markets are all within a 15 minute drive.
We are in the enviable position of being at the top of the Vienne whilst on the doorstep of the area often called the ‘Garden of France’ - the Loire Valley - an enchanted land of vineyards, flowers and rolling green hills dotted with more than a thousand chateaux. It has a lot to offer to visitors and its gentle pace of life is a step back through history. An excellent location for visiting historic/medieval towns and villages and the fabulous Loire Valley with its chateaux, vineyards, restaurants and cafes including the medieval town of Montreuil Bellay with its beautiful river, chateau and church and the larger town of Saumur with its world-famous equestrian centre - 'Cadre Noir'.
Other attractions include Puy de Fou, Futuroscope, the water park at Massais, golf, go-karting, adventure playgrounds, boat trips on the Loire and weekly antique markets.
Could you love our restored longere farmhouse as much as we do ? Sadly due to ill health we are now forced to part with it and due to a worsening situation we are now selling at a bargain price of e160:000. We are situated in a hamlet 3miles from Loudun, a thriving town where there are banks, schools, colleges, doctors, dentists, restaurants. In fact everything you could need. The next village is within cycling distance and has a bakers, restaurant and school.
