Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Secondigny

Deux-Sevres (Departement 79) is the next departement inland from the Vendee and below the Loire, in the region of Poitou Charente in Western France. It is so called because of the two Rivers running through it, the River Nantaise in the north and the River Niortaise in the south. The climate is very similar to that of the Mediterranean with long hot summers, although the winters can be quite cold with temperatures around freezing during December and January.
In the 12th Century Poitou Charente was a 'part of England' in that it was ruled by the Plantagenets. Count Henry of Anjou married Eleanor of Aquitaine and he became King of England in 1154. Henry wore a plant genesta in his hat – hence the name Plantagenet. Poitou then became an English possession and established a 'Plantagenet society' with its own currency. Their son was Richard the Lionheart. Poitou was taken back under the French Crown by Louis IX in 1242.
Green fields bordered by hedges and dotted with woods remind the visitor of the countryside of southern England. Cattle and sheep graze the lush green meadows and the area is also famous for its goats cheeses. It is also a big apple-growing area. Fields of sunflowers follow the sun during the summer, but vineyards tend to be on the smaller size, although there is a tourist Route Des Vins which takes the visitor through towards Poitiers.
The capital town is Niort, with attractive shops and a large indoor and outdoor market twice a week. The Military Academy dominates the town of St Maixent l'Ecole, whilst Parthenay, in the center, is famous throughout France for its cattle market, and St Loup sur Thouet for its goats cheeses. Pineau de Charente is the popular locally produced aperitif, originating from monks who put wine into casks which had previously held cognac.
Poitiers and La Rochelle airports provide easy access to the Departement, with Ryanair flights from Stansted. British Airways offer flights from Gatwick to Nantes, a 2-hour drive away. Cross-channel travelers can reach Deux-Sevres within a comfortable 4 hours' drive from Caen and St Malo, or just over 5 hours from Cherbourg.
For a holiday home, the Vendee coast is an hour and a half's drive away, and there are inland lakes with beaches offering water sports, walking, cycling, fishing etc. If you own a home with a swimming pool, the hot summers will ensure it gets plenty of use!
House styles vary from the Charentaise longhouses to more modern properties on 1 floor with sous sol (garage built below the living accommodation) to individually designed properties on private plots. Compared with the southern and coastal departments, prices in Deux-Sevres are quite reasonable and running costs are much lower than in England. House letting on behalf of maison secondaire owners is popular, so your holiday home can earn its keep!
Market activity is high, with the Dutch moving into the area, as well as the British. Many French estate agents in Deux-Sevres do not advertise in the English magazines, so an on-site visit is recommended to give a wider choice of properties to suit your requirements.
With farming still a major industry, Deux-Sevres is very rural, with life running at a slow pace. The towns offer craft groups, gymnasiums, cinemas, restaurants and street cafes, and there is an active British Group for those who wish to get involved, with a choice of different social events and a monthly library. Like the rest of France, the three months of summer holidays ensure the area comes alive with festivals and fairs, attracting tourists from all over the world.
With a home in Deux-Sevres, you can be sure you will always have plenty of things to do, or just sit back and enjoy a leisurely lunch with a glass of wine
and good company!
