This very well presented spacious detached house in the heart of Chef Boutonne is only two minutes walk from the market square, shops and bars. The total plot size is 1,204 sq m.
Chef Boutonne is a tranquil yet connected market town which provides the ideal combination of classic French country style and modern amenities. It is only 50 minutes from Poitiers and 90 minutes to the coast.
Chef Boutonne - Region 79
It lies in the rural Deux-Sèvres region of Poitou-Charentes in western France.
In Chef Boutonne, there is a whole range of shopping, cultural and sporting activities. There are two large supermarkets along with schools, doctors, vet, (both the doctor and vet speak fluent english) chemists, hairdressers, notaire, bakers as well as many other useful services including a popular weekly country market and a specialist wine store ! There is also a large multi-purpose sports hall where every year they hold an international Table Tennis competition.
The area is very well served for transport links. Within roughly an hour and a half, there are three airports serving the UK-namely at Poitiers (50 mins), La Rochelle and Limoges. Another 30 minutes further takes you to the very large international airport at Bordeaux. There are also main TGV train stations at Ruffec, Poitiers and Angouleme - between 30 minutes and an hour away.
The climate in this area is wonderful and is apparently the second sunniest in France after the Riviera.
We love our house but are looking to sell due to ill health.
