Description of Property:   Situated in a peaceful farming hamlet and dating from 1599, bursting with old-world charm, original rustic oak beams and hand-crafted tiles made in the nearby village of Gourge is our beautiful cottage we call Chez Aline. Accommodation is set over two floors. On the ground floor you'll find the charming farmhouse-style kitchen with insert log burner - perfect for chillier days. Staying on this level is a cosy twin bedroom, shower room and separate WC. Moving up the tiled staircase you will find an extremely roomy master double bedroom with antique furniture, offering views to the garden and countryside beyond. Opposite is the spacious lounge with comfortable seating, dominated by an ancient decorative Charentaise fireplace, offering a tranquil place to read or watch television, again with views to the garden and countryside beyond.

Outside Amenities:  The large garden situated in front of the cottage and set mainly to mature trees and shrubs, offers a shady oasis in the summer and provides lots of colour and interest in the autumnal months. To one side of the garden is the village pond and at the bottom of the garden a natural source bubbles up. The ancient Lavoir can be discovered nearby too.

Parking is freely available, either directly in front of the cottage or in front of the nearby hanger, that we use as additional entertaining space and also the hamlet's only remaining operational bread oven. For our summer guests we offer a 5 metre above ground heated swimming pool and a log burning hot-tub. Long-term guests can have access and use of the hot-tub by prior arrangement.

Bois Mort is also situated on the Petit Chemin - St Jacques de Compostelle - one of many that criss-cross the department and link up with many popular walking and cycling routes. The hamlet of Piedmou can be found at the end of the chemin and if you descend a little further the picturesque River Thouet can be found which is crossable by large stepping-stones. If you're keen to try the 'good-life' we have some chickens and ducks that you are very welcome to look after, helping yourself to the eggs!

Surrounding Area:  Ideally positioned between the beautiful villages of Gourge and St Loup Sur Thouet, both with their own local shops, cafes and restaurants, make Bois Mort and Chez Aline a perfect get-away from it all - but not too far from all the needs of modern living!

A short 15 minute drive away is the medieval town of Parthenay which has all the major supermarkets, some excellent restaurants and its thriving Wednesday market - you'll find everything you need here! Around a further 30 minutes north is beautiful Thouars, dominated by the chateau Ducs de Tremill. Thouars hosts the department's largest market each Friday. Driving on around another 20 minutes and you are in the Loire Valley, you'll pass many beautiful chateau towns before arriving in Saumur - wine tasting heaven!!

To the east lies the bustling and vibrant university city of Poitiers, with its ancient history, beautiful parks, shopping and covered market, all making it an excellent city to discover! You'll find the theme park Futuroscope here too!

40 minutes south of Bois Mort you'll find yourself in the Marais Potevin and our principal city here in the Deux Sevres - Niort. Again, with bustling shops, markets and an ancient Donjon to discover.

Lying to the west is the Vendee region, beautiful countryside and beaches and most notable is the theme park Puy De Fou - voted France's number one theme park!
