Dating back to the late 1800s, the high ceilings and large windows make this property wonderfully light and spacious. It is situated in a small hamlet but is only 5 minutes by car from the town of Loudun. The departmental capital of Poitiers and the châteaux and vineyards of Saumur can be reached by car in around 45 minutes.

The main part of the house comprises a lounge and a kitchen downstairs. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with two large windows and a built in cupboard, two further double bedrooms, each with a large window and a newly refitted shower room. There is also a loft that could be renovated.

There is also a single storey annexe to the side of the house, which leads off from the kitchen. The annexe comprises a large living room with a window to the front, a bathroom, a separate toilet and a laundry room.

There is a large but manageable garden with several fruit trees and some outbuildings.

The property benefits from mains drainage, double glazing on the ground floor and oil fired central heating.

    I may not be spot on with c. 1880. 🙂

    I’m having way too much fun looking at listings in France.

    One would spend way more than this for a decent cabin in the Ozarks. The commute is a little longer, but makes you think.

    I LOVE the beautiful windows they have here, and the Brits have. The windows totally open to nature and the fresh air. But it makes me think they do not have mosquitos and flies!

    • Peggy says: 35 comments

      Oh yes they do have mosquitoes and flies….plus scorpions (in France at least)…

      • Mélissa ( from France) says: 45 comments

        Yes, mosquitoes and flies, but scorpions are only in the south…

          Lancaster, PA, PA

          I stayed in the Netherlands two summers ago. I was eaten by mosquitoes in my apartment. I asked the locals, what do you do? Mosquito netting on the bed was the answer. I should think decent screens on the windows would both be easier and a better long term solution!

            there is a lot of water in Netherlands, so a lot of mosquitoes. Where i live in France, it’s running water, so few mosquitoes, and only in summer. We don’t bother with screens, only repellent or citronnella.

              My dream was to retire to France. Eight months ago, I adopted an American Pit Bull Terrier who desperately needed a home. Now I cannot move to France as such a dog is forbidden. Tears me up…

                That’s so sad that the name of a breed alone would have a ban on this sweet breed. I have seen so many adorable and loving Pitties and it’s terrible that the breed has become synonymous with attacks.

                  I have a lab/pit along with 13 cats (I actually think she believes she’s a cat) She may hurt you when she knocks you down licking you!

                I understand you only have to spay/neuter (which you should do with any pet) and keep them out of public places. I say go for it and leave doggie at home to enjoy the beautiful yard!

      Hi Elaine, I’m French. And yes we do have mosquitoes and flies (right as i’m writing both of my legs are itching from mosquitoes bites). But screens are not common here. But i couldn’t stand these flies/mosquitoes anymore, so i bought on Amazon a screen curtain for my front door (not pretty) and screen with peel/stick velcro tape for all other windows. It so much better now! I don’t understand why windows screens are not more known here. But i see my idea grew around because some of my neighbours installed screen a short while after i put mine 🙂

    Loved France, the food and the people! While I like the grounds of this property, I would like to have seen the bathrooms, and other rooms. I think I would like the twin “Property Brothers” help with the kitchen and probably some of the other rooms — while still keeping a “French Feel” to it…

      Bathrooms in old as-is properties such as this one are often outdated (1950-70s) or modern. We don’t have pretty bathrooms with clawfoot tubs like in the old American houses. Bathrooms came late in French houses.

    There are some womderful property deals in France. There are a lot of UK expats as well, so many english speaking communities. France has been a sought after retirement community for Brits for a long time due to lower property prices and cost of living.
    Remember, many properties do not come with fitted kitchens, no appliances, sometimes not even sinks. There are a couple of good websites dedicated propoerty purchasing for overseas folks and the legal issues of purchasing propery in Francethis site alao has great property deals and loads of info:

    there’s an adorable cottage in Normandy listed on ebay w/a price of $90k USD, or best offer. It’s been there for quite awhile.

    It would just be too hard to move there alone — est-ce qu’il y a quelqun qui peut y demanager avec moi?
