Perfect for visiting friends and family or even renting for extra income as it has its own front and back doors

The location on the edge of a hamlet with almost a hectare of land is peaceful and idyllic surrounded by woodland and fields with numerous walking and cycling trails on the doorestep while only ten minutes drive from the town of Lezay with its hugely popular twice weekly market, 30 minutes from Niort and 40 minutes from Poitiers where there are train(TGV)and air links to the UK and the rest of Europe
