About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Richard Wisdom

We are Richard and Carol Wisdom, I am now 50 years young and Carol will have to tell you herself as I dare not risk it! We have been happily married now since 24th May 1986 “CRIKEY!” that’s 31 years this year! And I don’t regret a single moment. We have two dogs Max the German Shepherd and Ted the Leonberger cross who are really big softies. We live in a beautiful property called La Vergne, the house was built in 1906 and sits in 15 acres of land with an acre lake so it is a peaceful haven.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? This area is still largely undiscovered by the tourist hordes, so you can still find many aspects of the true rural France, with beautiful rolling verdant green countryside, with winding river valleys, and very pretty historic towns and villages.

When we first laid eyes on La Vergne, it was love at first sight, a beautiful location within the rolling Vienne countryside with ample space and bucket loads of potential, it ticked every box we had. We still continue to pinch ourselves that we could be so lucky to own this beautiful piece of France. It is Idyllic and so tranquil that stress just melts away and all worries seem as nothing.

I think that when we first looked from the house out over the land and down across our lake it was a defining moment in our lives, we felt we had come home, even though we had never been here before.
Unique benefits of property Although we are in a rural location, we are very close to all the necessary amenities of modern life. Being just a couple of minute from our local village, which has a bakery, shop, bar, pharmacy, post office etc. and also only 10 to 15 minutes from large supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, banks etc.

We are situated on a no through road so have very little traffic and therefore we remain a peaceful haven in the rolling Vienne countryside. Yet we have easy access to many leisure activities in the local area - Walking, Fishing, Hiking, Cycling, Kayaking, Golf, Tennis etc.
Also on-site we have a well equipped games room with pool table, table football, table tennis, dart board plus many more indoor and outdoor games. Just outside of this games room is a large patio area with tables chair and loungers alongside the 10 meter by 5 meter solar heated swimming pool. Additionally to this there are uninterrupted views of the Fishing lake and surrounding countryside.

The Owner Recommends

La Vallée des Singes (valley of the monkeys)

We recently went here with some friends who had come to stay and they had 2 young children with them, they had a thoroughly brilliant time, which apparently the children are still talking about months later. It is an animal park dedicated to all types of monkeys and apes, but allows you to walk among several of the species which was fascinating, it proved to be a wonderful day out for all the family and I would highly recommend a visit there.

Track Days at the Circuit Du Val De Vienne

The Val de Vienne circuit came about following a meeting between motorsport fans and local residents eager to promote and develop their region.Built in 1990 by the Montmorillon region and financed by several local government agencies, it played host to its first motorsport event – the French Touring Car Championship – two years later.The French Superbike Championship soon followed and, every year since, the Vienne area has hosted a wealth of major series and events.

The gite was exactly as described a little part of paradise and the welcome from Richard and Carol was as warm as the 30-degree temperatures which greeted us when we arrived. The gite was well equipped with everything you need and the welcome pack of essentials was greatly appreciated. The games room and pool were a welcome distraction from the heat and the evenings playing darts with Richard and Carol were great fun. The surrounding area was beautiful with loads of villages and chateaus to visit. Richard and Carol were generous in sharing their local knowledge. Overall one of the best holidays we’ve had and can’t wait to go back.

Owner response
