La Belle Ferme “The Beautiful Farmhouse” (sleeps 2 to 12)
Located less than 3km from the town of Chef Boutonne with all its amenities, this former French farmhouse stands in 2 acres of private meadow and garden with a large private pool.
This lovely spacious property has recently been converted to provide 5
good sized bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms as well as sitting room,
dining room, kitchen and covered terrace. The property has been
restored with respect to it’s age and style but provides all mod cons
to help with your holiday catering and comforts. It is exceptionally well equipped to make self-catering an easy option, for large groups or for dinner à deux when you might want the cut glass and fine China!
The bedrooms are large and cool which is a bonus in the heat of the summer. On the ground floor is a large double with a shower room next to it. This is ideal for guests who find the stairs a chore! There is a smaller double bedded room with en-suite bathroom downstairs as well. The upper floor has the other 3 bedrooms: a double with en-suite shower room, a room with a double and a twin bed and a room with 3 single beds. There is also a ‘family’ bathroom upstairs.
The grounds are a real feature with almost 2 acres of meadow, orchard, shady barns
and terraces. The inground pool, with Roman steps, is within a secure fenced area with
lots of space for sunbathing, dining and generally enjoying yourselves. Most of the land and garden areas are behind the house; they are very secluded and quiet. In the late summer there are many productive fruit trees from which our guests are welcome to pick as much fruit as they can use!
Situated a little over an hour from the Atlantic coast, an hour from Futuroscope and 40 minutes from Cognac,there is much to discover in this lovely part of France. With Roman amphitheaters and ancient Royal Abbeys, towns where the old blends with the new with chic shopping and pavement cafes, old markets and brocantes. For those who like to be active, you will find lakes and rivers for canoeing, sailing and paddle boarding, walking, cycling, riding, tree top trails, golf… etc there is something for everyone. Chef Boutonne even has its own little chateau just 2km away with lovely grounds, a lake and the river Boutonne!
If there are just a few of you (2-6 people) but you like a lot of space, we do great discounts for under occupancy outside of the main season. Just ask!
