2-bedroomed Barn Conversion in a small rural hamlet close to a market town

This pretty self-contained single-storey barn is adjacent to our holiday home, set in a walled garden with heated swimming pool, rural views and lovely sunsets. We have had a property in this small hamlet for over 25 years and this conversion was completed in 2018. The barn is situated on a quiet little lane which is part of the ancient pilgrim route to Compostela in Spain. We love the peaceful location, close to local market towns, with Poitiers, Cognac, Niort, the Marais Poitevin, La Rochelle, Saintes and Rochefort all within 90 minutes (or less) drive. This area averages 2,250 hours of sunshine per year and is the second sunniest region in France. We are surrounded by fields, small green lanes and peaceful, quiet country roads - a delight to walk and cycle. There are many local streams and lavoirs (ancient, covered washing places) in which to paddle. Woodpeckers, Hoopoes, Buzzards and Owls are regular sights. There is a boulangerie, bar, restaurant (lunches only) and small supermarket a 5-minute drive or 15-minute walk away in the next village. Our nearby (4kms) historic town of Melle has a weekly market, 3 supermarkets, 2 pharmacies, 3 Unesco-listed Romanesque churches, indoor pool, cinema, hotels, restaurants & bars. There is a local plan d'eau (artificial lake) where you can walk, swim, canoe, fish and try the zip-wire.
The accommodation has a spacious living/dining/kitchen area, with a comfortable sofa, two armchairs, dining table & four chairs, well-stocked bookcase, DVD collection & DVD player, Wi-Fi and TV with Freesat showing English channels. There is a portable CD/cassette player and CD's can be played on the DVD player. The fully-fitted kitchen has an electric oven & ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave.
French doors lead out to the gravelled private terrace with gas barbecue, table, chairs & parasol. Sun-loungers are available by the shared pool. A separate door from the hall leads out across the garden to the pool and pool house. Please note that the heated 10x5 metre pool has a substantial, locked electric roller cover but it is not fenced. There are shady areas by the pool and a children's play/swing set, plus various garden games. There is private off-road parking for one car with separate gated access to the property.
The comfortable double bedroom has a kingsize bed, and ample storage. The adjacent shower room has a large shower, vanity basin unit and wc, and heated towel rail. At the opposite end of the barn is a twin-bedded room, again with ample storage. The adjoining cloakroom has a wc, washbasin and heated towel rail. Bed linen and bath towels are provided, plus summer weight duvets. Please bring your own beach towels for use by the pool or at the beach. An iron, ironing board and hairdryer are provided. The property is not suitable for children under 5 years of age. Sorry, we cannot accept pets.
