Farmhouse in Poitou Charentes, France

Property Details of Poitou Charentes Farmhouse

Featured in LIVING FRANCE MAGAZINE - Deep in the Deux-Sèvres countryside, surrounded by fields, trees and hardly a neighbour in sight, Saumort has been described as a 'little piece of heaven' {II}. The tranquility of Saumort is perfect for a relaxing holiday but there are also plenty of things to do here. We have a 'children's farm' to delight your family, there is also horse riding on site, a games room and a children's play area, we can arrange for you to play golf at a local course, can provide you with walking/cycling routes or why not go fishing at the premier fishing centre in Europe, Pescalis. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our beautiful, old farm is situated in the Deux-Sèvres department which, along with the Charente, Charente-Maritime and Vienne departments, lies within the Poitou Charentes region. We receive more than 2250 hours of sunshine per year and are also fortunate enough to be close to the border with the beautiful Vendée department and so inherit much of the rolling hills and spectacular countryside from there. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The spacious farmhouse is situated well away from the road making it both safe and private. You will have exclusive use of the large swimming pool which has an excellent pool heating system (see later). The house is fully centrally heated making Saumort a great destination for holidays all year round. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All the rooms in the farmhouse are spacious and well equipped. Constructed in classic French style the walls are thick and the windows are quite small. This has the obvious advantage of keeping the house cool in the Summer (thank goodness!) and in the Winter the house is centrally heated keeping the temperature right all year round. There is a large, fully fitted farmhouse kitchen with a cooker, hob, full size fridge, double sinks and a separate freezer. There is also a microwave, a dishwasher and a washing machine. Cutlery, plates and cooking/cleaning utensils are all provided. The living room is another, typically french, spacious room with a beautiful beamed ceiling. There is a dining table to seat 10 people and plenty of comfortable seating for conversation, relaxation or a snooze! There is a CD juke box and computer with internet access, mail and fax. Optional satellite TV, DVD player, video recorder and XBox console (with games) can also be provided free of charge. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a triple bedroom with single bed and bunk beds. Downstairs, is a second triple bedroom. All rooms are equipped with a wardrobe, shelving, full length mirror and vanity table. All bed linen and towels (except pool towels) are provided free of charge. Upstairs, you will find a bathroom with toilet, shower and washbasin. Downstairs, there is another shower room (with shower and washbasin) and a separate toilet. And don't forget there are two solar heated showers in the pool area for emergencies! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The swimming pool and terrace area has been described as an 'oasis'. Set behind the house and enclosed on all four sides, the area receives full sunshine almost all day long yet you can relax and swim in complete privacy. The figure of eight shaped pool is 12m x 5.5m and has a 'roman end' with steps into the water, making entry and exit easy for our older guests and providing an important safety feature for children. The pool is surrounded by nearly 200m2 of non-slip terrace with plenty of sun loungers and parasols. The water in the pool is heated by our autofed, wood-burning boiler which GUARANTEES you an optimum temperature regardless of the weather (unlike other pool heating systems e.g solar panels). There is also a covered barbecue area with table and chairs, so you can eat outside as often as you like. Automatic sensors turn on the lighting for the pool area as dusk falls so you can enjoy the tranquility with a bottle (or three!) of wine as long as you like. Just next to the barbeque area is a sand boule court. Boule and palet are both provided, and the area is well lit, so all you need is a good supply of wine (and a sense of humour) for those late night competitions! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We have a large, floodlit games barn (18m x 6m) for your (and especially your children's) entertainment. There is a table tennis table, a basket ball net, a safety darts board or why not knock around a football or play softball in there? There is also a selection of games, jigsaws and packs of cards in the gite and, don't forget you can borrow our x-box games for free too. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Boredom is never a problem here with our children's play area. Here you will find swings, a slide, a trampoline, swing ball and a badminton net.
