A 12th century priory and its many rosebushes, a guest house and a swimming pool between the Poitou, Touraine and Anjou regions.
The farming, vine-growing and forestry wealth of this land, where the borders of the Poitou, Touraine and Anjou regions meet, ranks the area amongst France’s greatest territories, but its fame also comes from its literary and political wealth. Landscapes of forests, vines and fields are a source of ever-varied vistas, ideal for taking a walk. Boating on the river Loire is possible just a stone’s throw from the priory, as the historic towns of Fontevraud, Chinon and Saumur are less than 20 minutes away, just like Montreuil-Bellay and Loudun. But it is Chinon that is famous for local delicacies such as “tarte vigneronne” and wine jams. Paris is just over 3 hours away by car, 2⅓ hours from Saumur or 1½ hours (by TGV train) from Châtellerault, a 45-minute car drive away.
This priory, once part of the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, is concealed in a vast clearing, standing out from the surrounding meadows. It is accessed via a little, no-through road. Carriage gates open on to a vast courtyard, delimited by the main house, a guest house, a barn, a covered area and other buildings used for storage purposes. All the buildings are constructed from quarry stone blocks and most have gable, slate roofs; those that are not slate are covered with tiles. A long garden, featuring a swimming pool, is laid out behind the house.
The houseTwo buildings, united long ago, now form the current house. The north facade looks out over the courtyard and, like all the other buildings, it is constructed from exposed stone and features doors, windows and French windows (double-glazed). The opposing, south-facing facade opens on to the garden.
Ground floor
An entrance hall provides access to a lounge, a guest toilet, a dining room and, following on from the latter, a kitchen, a bedroom and a shower room. (It also houses the stairway going up to the first floor.) A fireplace, with a wooden mantel, takes pride of place in the spacious lounge, at the other end of which is an old bread oven. A wooden stairway goes up from the lounge to the first floor of one of the two united sections, another stairway providing access to the first floor of the other section. A beam system delimits the ceiling with impressive beams, no doubt crafted in the 14th century from unhewn trunks taken from the surrounding woods. With the exception of the shower room, all the rooms have French windows, making it easy to access the courtyard and the garden. Floors are covered with terracotta tiles in the reception rooms and more modern tiles in the others.
First floor
The wooden stairway in the ground floor lounge goes up to a small landing providing access to a bedroom, a bathroom, with a shower and a toilet, and a dressing room. This through bedroom faces north and south. Its decorative features include a stone fireplace, with meticulous motifs, and terracotta floor tiles.
The other section, reached via the stairway in the entrance hall, comprises a space under a sloping ceiling, divided into two adjoining areas: one in use as a study and the other as a bedroom.
The guest houseOverlooking the courtyard on the south side, this guest house features the same architectural aesthetics as the other buildings.
Ground floor
A French window opens into a living room and an open-plan kitchen. A fireplace immediately impresses visitors. A laundry room and a toilet are also laid out on this level. There are modern floor tiles throughout.
First floor
The landing, reached via a wooden stairway, provides access to two bedrooms and a bathroom, with a toilet.The …
