Laurier in Deux-Sèvres, a cottage in Poitou-Charentes: Laurier exterior

Charming house, with open fire and traditional features, in a rural setting

Renovated to a high standard and retaining many of its original features, Laurier is a spacious holiday home in the rural setting of Villefollet in the Poitou-Charentes/Vendee region. Ideal for multi-generational holidays, two families holidaying together or for a group of friends getting together for a relaxing break, Laurier sleeps 8 in four bedrooms. With the second highest level of sunshine in France the area is perfect for those who want to relax and get away from it all.

Laurier is the perfect base to use for exploring the local area. The spacious, modern well-equipped kitchen is ideal for creating meals using the fresh local produce and the dining area with its large table lends itself to making plans for the next days adventures. Lauriers large lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and features a wood burning stove for extra cosiness after a hard day of fun.

The ground floor has a double bedroom, shower room with two basins and a separate toilet. Upstairs is a further double bedroom, two twin bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the large garden which surrounds the house on three sides, and a field on the fourth, is enclosed on all sides and with a 12 foot splash pool, a swing set and swingball, is a perfect play area for children. Just outside the kitchen is a shaded outdoor eating area with a table and seating for eight, ideal for dining al fresco, using the barbeque or just relaxing with a glass of the local aperitif, Pineau de Charante!

With so much comfort and relaxing to do at Laurier it might be hard to tear yourself away, but the local area offers a wealth of varied places to visit and things to see.

Villefollet itself is a small village, just 5km from the charming riverside market town of Brioux sur Boutonne it has a selection of shops and a traditional market every two weeks. Further afield is Melle, a larger town, that boasts three Romanesque churches and historic silver mines of which a guided tour can be taken. Just 30 minutes from Laurier is St Jean d'Angely with its beautiful Abbey.

The rural Deux-Sèvres is a perfect spot for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, and to enjoy the great outdoors. Laurier is surrounded by brilliant golden sunflowers in early summer, and the gently undulating countryside provides a perfect scenic backdrop for walking, cycling or horse-riding.

Laurier is the perfect base from which to explore other parts of this area. La Rochelle is only an hour away with its lovely old port and marina. Poitiers is near by, take a self guided tour of the city or visit the Futuroscope theme park. Visit La Vallee des singes (Monkey Valley), to see 30 different species of monkey running free in a natural setting.

However you choose to spend your time whilst visiting Deux-Sevres, Laurier is the perfect home to use as your base.
