The property goes by the name Breuil; it is a typical PpoitevineP stone farmhouse dated from the end of the 18th century and located on 7 acres of bucolic land with a wide variety of tree species and a 180 degree panoramic view looking onto the Vonne Valley in the region of Poitou.
The property rests on a rolling hillside, 1 mile from Celle-Lvescault, a charming little village with an outstanding bakery, a post office, a doctorPs office, and a primary school. Celle-Lvescault sits quietly on the Vonne River where grass filled parkland, a small beach nestled by a medieval bridge, and a 14th century Romanesque church sit as if frozen in time, 16 miles south of the city of Poitiers.
Poitiers, population 100,000, is easily accessible from Paris (220 miles away) via highway A10 by car or 1hr 40min by train (TGV). London is a puddle jump away with Ryanair and their incredibly low fares.
