There is plenty of space inside and outside, including your own private swimming pool and extensive gardens which are accessed by crossing the very quiet lane. There are two local villages, l’Absie, 7km, to the north and the lovely Coulonges-sur-l’Autize, 6km, to the south. Both have all amenities including some lovely cafés, restaurants and a weekly market.
