Les Papillons in Deux-Sèvres, a cottage in Poitou-Charentes: Les Papillons exterior

Charming 3 bedroomed house in quiet village. Sunny terrace & garden. Parking.

Our house Les Papillons, is situated in the little village of Allonne in the Deux Sevres, a department with a typically rural French environment. If you enjoy peace and quiet, amidst tranquil countryside, then this area will appeal to you.

The house is a spacious and characteristically French village house with rear courtyard parking, terrace and large sunny garden. In the centre of Allonne a lovely 13th century church is to be found, it is a registered national monument. The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with a network of quiet lanes for walking or cycling. In the village centre, very close to the house, is a bar restaurant 'Le Regal'on' where meals are served every day except Mondays. You can also buy baguettes from the bar restaurant every morning except Monday, if you place an order beforehand.

The house has been nicely renovated and is well equipped. On the ground floor there is a large lounge, dining room. There is a shower room and toilet on the ground floor. On the first floor the house has two double bedrooms, and one single bedroom together a second shower room and toilet. Both shower rooms have heated towel rails. The spacious lounge has a beamed ceiling with comfortable seating. English and French TV is available plus free Wifi internet. The pleasant dining room has a dining table which seats six. There is a galley style kitchen which is very well equipped. There is a washing machine adjacent to the kitchen. The rear door from the kitchen takes you to the rear courtyard with parking and terraced area with table and chairs for outdoor dining. The rear garden is accessed by an entrance at the back of the courtyard to the side of the barn. The large garden is very quiet and peaceful and perfect for relaxing on sunny days, listening to bird song and the chime of church bells.

The little town of Secondigny is a mere ten minute drive away and has a supermarket, a bank, cafes, hairdressers, post office, newsagents and pharmacy. Secondigny also has a large park with fishing lake. Pedaloes can be hired and there is an open air swimming pool. In October every year Secondigny holds a week long Fête de la Pomme celebrating the apple harvest, for which this region (La Gatine) is famous. About twenty minutes drive away is a the village of Verruyes which has a lovely Plan d'Eau for swimming. The lake has a small beach behind which there is a large play area for children and in summer, a restaurant overlooking the lake. If you are a keen golfer there is Maziere (12kms). The town of Parthenay (13kms) is an interesting medieval town with winding cobbled streets, historic quarter and a market on Wednesdays. The nearest cities to Allonne are Niort and Poitiers, both about a one hour drive. The smaller town of Bressuire is 30 minutes away. La Rochelle on the coast is about a 70 minute drive away and well worth visiting.
