Our property is a former dairy farm, there are now 2 main areas one, where wheat barley or sunflowers are grown and the other half, marshland where we have planted poplar trees. We keep about 6km of pathways mown so that you can enjoy leisurely strolls where there is little to disturb your peaceful reflection.

The river Boutonne passes through our property and there is a boat avilable for exploring there is interesting waterway always popular with young and old.

The Poitou-Charentes region

The Poitou - Charente region is rich in history. You will find a host of historic chateaux and many fine Romanesque churches and Roman sites notably the amphitheatre at Saintes.

On the coast, about 1 hour from us, lie the fascinating towns of La Rochelle and Napoleonic naval base of Rochefort and, in the other direction inland Cognac, with its internationally renowned brands, provides another opportunity for a "day out". Saintes has a spectacular Roman amphitheatre.

Charente Maritime is noted for its exceptional number of sunshine hours (second only to the Riviera). Sunny days and starry, starry nights are normal here!

Blanzay sur Boutonne

Our area is flat or gently rolling which, together with unusually little traffic makes it an ideal area for leisurely strolls and family bike rides.

Few can resist the markets, notably those at Aulnay (Thursday and especially Sunday) and St Jean d'Angely (Wednesday and Saturday)

There is a small shop in Dampiere sur Boutonne where you can buy your daily bread, obtain emergency supplies, hire bikes etc. For supermarket shopping, Aulnay, or St Jean d'Angely are your most likely destinations.

Of touristic interest there is a Renaissance chateau at Dampierre sur Boutonne and the church at Aulnay is a UNESCO classed "world heritage site" .
