Located in the north of the Deux Sevres near the village of Cersay, where there are local shops and services. Within easy reach of the Towns of Thouars and Bressuire, where there are all shops and services and a new Golf course at Bressuire. 90 minutes from the Vendee coast and several airports including Nantes, La Rochelle and Poitiers. 4-5 hours drive from the ferry ports of Caen and Le Havre.
The department of Deux Sevres is in the Poitou-Charentes region, in the western part of France below the Pays de la Loire region. In recent times this department has become an ever popular destination for French property buyers. Prices are still reasonable and one cannot help being seduced by the diverse cultural heritage, delicious local cuisine, seafood and of course the lovely rolling countryside.
Deux Sevres has a very mild climate, similar to that of Aquitaine and the Poitou-Charentes region, it is the second sunniest region of France where people adopt a relaxed, simple way of life ideal for holidays and leisure activities.
The transport links are very good too, with five international airports, the TGV (high speed train) in Niort can reach Paris in 2 hours, to Bordeaux in 1hrs 30mins and Toulouse in 4hrs 30mins. Good motorway links to Bordeaux, Nantes, Tours and Paris make it a great location.
