This farmhouse is over 200 years old and was formally a “working farm” serving the local area and community with produce and sold from the land. It has been sympathetically updated and refurbished by the current owners.
There are two areas designated for the holidaymaker.
A spacious one-bedroom wing of the farmhouse which is self contained with period features and furniture to match the original French style.
Formerly a “wood store” and wine cave within the farmhouse, this has been refurbished to create a two bedroomed cottage that sits within the farmhouse with a modern upgrade of fixtures and fittings.
The complex has a 9m x 4m heated below ground swimming pool with covered attractive Summerhouse, Open Barn, BBQ & dining areas. The farmhouse is surrounded by two acres of landscaped gardens, orchard and large playing field.
We have ample parking and private access to accommodation. Evening meal on request. English owners on site. English and French spoken. The next village has a good bar/tabac. Within 2km there is a supermarket, bakery, bank, post office, tabac, hairdresser, chemist, doctor (English spoken) and dentist.
St Martin des Fontaines is between the historic market towns of Fontenay-le-Comte and Lucon. Trout and coarse fishing are within a 5 min walk and permits can be arranged. Table tennis, badminton and boules are available. Bicycle hire available.
The open countryside all around the property is quiet, tranquil and excellent for cycling, walks, birdwatching, painting, wildlife or just generally relaxing, whilst on the doorstep lie numerous places of interest and outdoor activities to suit everyone.
