Description of Property:
Moulin Bois is located in the middle of a large wood, at the end of a tree lined single track lane on the edge of the lively village of Sommières du Clain. Situated on the River Clain, with 5 hectares of islands and river prairie it's the perfect getaway for those looking for calm and relaxation. There is no traffic noise and no overlooking neighbours.
The main part of the house dates from around the 14th century with later additions probably in the 1700s. The house has been completely renovated recently.
The house is divided into a functioning gite (95m²) and the main house (155m²) has two double bedrooms with very large living room and kitchen. The gîte has good year round occupancy and a 9.7 rating on booking.com. Prospective renters can run the gîte and continue to take it's income if they wish. There is an office (14m²) which can be part of the gîte or the main house. This is currently a single bedroom but the office furniture is in the barn and could be easily reinstated.
Outside Amenities: 5 hectares of land, mainly wood and river prairie. The river is very clear due to the large spring that joins the river on the property. It is possible to swim in both the river and the springs all year round. The woods have two beautiful circular walks that take about 20 minutes to complete. The village has tennis courts and a children's playground.
Surrounding Area: Mainly farmland and woods with many peaceful and well marked, shaded walks. The country roads are very quiet and perfect for cycling.
The house lies equidistant from Gencay and Civray, both market towns with a good selection of independent bars and shops.
For an urban fix Poitiers (pop. 200,000) is a 30 minute drive away. From there the TGV takes 1hr 20 min to Paris and slightly longer to Bordeaux. Angoulême is 1 hour away by car and Tours and La Rochelle/the Atlantic coast are both 90 minutes away.
The main attraction in the immediate area is La Vallée des Singes. Futuroscope, to the north of Poitiers is the other big draw.
