Description

The Prieure St Therese lies in a small village location in the Deux-Sevres department of the Poitou Charente region. It is about 70km inland from La Rochelle.

The house is a stunning 14th century Priory, next to a pretty church, offering the highest standards of luxury in 6 bedrooms, 5 bath/shower rooms to comfortably sleep 12 guests.

This is a very quiet area where the slow pace of life & air quality will really help you relax during your week away. It is also worth pointing out that the region is the second most sunny in France!
