|Year property purchased||2007|
|Why this location?||We are surrounded by fields and pasture which makes it feel completely involved in country living but the local village is only 5 minutes away with shops, restaurants and bars as well as a large supermarket.
There are a number of walks and cycle routes all within easy distance from the property and it is ideally located to three airports as well as some of the best attractions in France, including Puy du Fou, our favourite and Futuroscope.
Poitou Charente also has it's own micro climate which means we do have lovely summers without being too far from the UK.
|Unique benefits of property||La Bodiniere has been sympathetically restored to bring all the benefits of modern living while retaining the character and some of the original features of the property. It also benefits from a lovely private garden and above ground pool to enjoy the views over the lake and fields while eating al-fresco.|
