La Forgeard Deux SÃ¨vres, Poitou Charentes, France
La Forgeard is a stunning conversion of a 700 year old mill, complete with a luxurious four poster master bedroom, a hot tub and a beautiful river running at the bottom of the garden.
The property offers peace and seclusion and has the benefit of being close to major attractions.
Within a few minutes’ drive of the Medieval town of Parthenay, the property is in the Deux Sevres area of Poitou Charente, known for its particularly sunny climate.
The house is very large and with its four double bedrooms (3 very large double bedrooms and 1 twin), can easily provide enough space for 8 people.
Set over 3 floors, with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on both the first and second floors, the house can easily accommodate 1 or 2 families at a time. It is therefore possible for 2 families to stay in the property at the same time and enjoy a floor each. However, it is equally suitable for smaller groups and couples and the four poster room with its super king memory foam bed makes it the perfect romantic retreat.
As the length of the house measures more than 100 feet, there is plenty of room. Both the lounge and the dining room are extremely large and each has an open fireplace.
The focal point of the house, however, has to be the beautiful beamed lounge with its exceptional fireplace, measuring 9 feet across, and its stunning mezzanine floor, which offers a large reading area and well-stocked bookcase together with an office, computer and printer. (Wi-fi is included .)
The kitchen is well equipped with lovely views of the garden and it has its own dining area and relaxing seating area, although there is also a more formal dining room should you prefer.
The real beauty of La Forgeard, however, is that it is only a few minutes’ drive from Parthenay, with its wealth of history, and from nearby villages (our favourite restaurant in the world is in the next village) and yet it is amazingly peaceful.
With only one other house and a farm in the hamlet, you can really get away from it all if you wish and enjoy traffic-free peace and quiet, which might only be broken occasionally by the peaceful sounds of the river or the odd neigh from a horse in the field beyond.
It is also amazing how brightly the stars shine at night here without the disadvantage of light pollution.
If you want to combine your peace and quiet with some sight-seeing, La Forgeard is in the perfect location. It is just over an hour from the beautiful beaches of La Rochelle and you can even include a visit to Paris which takes just an hour and a half from Poitiers on the TGV.
The fascinating and exciting tourist spots of Puy du Fou (the biggest and most spectacular historical and education theme park in the world) and Futuroscope are within easy reach and the historical Oradour-sur-Glane is also well worth a visit.
We can recommend some excellent nearby restaurants or you can simply relax with a book or dvd, make the most of the rest you know you deserve and enjoy the wonderful food and wine available locally.
