By the river Gartempe, at the end of a short street from the village square. Half an hour by car from Poitiers where airport (with international flights and connections to all France), TGV train station (1h5min from Paris) and motorway transport (main North-South axis) are available. Even though it is in the side of the village, the site is exceptional, surrounded by small fields and its own 20ha wood and 2ha park. The area has schools at primary, middle and secondary level. Poitiers itself is a renowned university city. Within 10 miles might be found quality hospitals, facilities, all necessary services, and large retail spaces as well as the historic towns of Montmorillon, the beautiful medieval Chauvigny and picturesque Chatellerault.
XIV C Manoir, in perfect state of conservation and fully renovated with exceptional taste. Ready to move in. Completely inhabitable throughout except for the undeveloped small tower in the courtyard.
