This deceptively spacious home is situated in a small hamlet on the edge of the the village of L'Absie. It is only a 15 minute walk into L'Absie and a short drive (20 mins) from the village of Moncoutant which hosts, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and other small commerce. There are 2 larger towns nearby - La Chataigneraie and Bressuire. Just over 1 hour away is the ever famous La Rochelle, a seaport on the Bay of Biscay, which is part of the Atlantic Ocean. La Rochelle is the capital of the Charente-Maritime department and has the feel of being in the south of France.
PETS WELCOME - We love our dogs and feel they are part of our family so don't want them to miss out on a great holiday too. The local vet is 15 minutes away and can deal with the passports so no need to leave them at home if you don't want to.
