About the property

Two bedroom Village house.

The house is situated in a village surrounded by beautiful countryside. There is a 13th Century church, and a bar within walking distance. It was built around 100 years ago, and has been modernised but retains its original features such as lovely large light windows, the original wooden staircase and wood beamed ceilings. There is a courtyard for off-road parking, and a beautiful sunny garden for relaxing in.

There are two large double bedrooms and a modern shower room / WC on the first floor. One of the bedrooms has an additional bed which is a small double.

Downstairs there is a wood-beamed living room with open fire and two comfortable sofas. There is a dining table with seating for 4. There is English and French TV and free WIFI internet.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooker, microwave, fridge, toaster, electric kettle, coffee maker and wood burning stove.

There is a downstairs toilet and a washing machine.

The back door from the kitchen takes you to the courtyard with parking. A door between the barns leads to a sunny garden with a covered seating area with a table and chairs and a BBQ, lawns, flower beds and fruit trees - perfect for outside dining or relaxing in the sun.

The village maintains a system of grassy lanes for walking, and the local roads are quiet for great cycling. There is a large lake around 5km away in Secondigny where there is an outdoor swimming pool in the summer.

About Nicky Addington-Hall

In 2013 my husband David and I decided to leave our busy life in the UK and to follow our dream and start a new life in France. We settled in the tranquil and rural Deux Sevres. We now run 2 gites and really enjoy our new lives. I spend my life painting, gardening and just enjoying the atmosphere.

Nicky Addington-Hall purchased this house in 2013

Why Nicky Addington-Hall chose Allonne

We wanted to buy a typical French village house. Volets Bleus has the original wooden beams, flooring and staircase, and came complete with beautiful furniture. We fell in love with it immediately.

What makes this house unique

Volets Bleus is situated in the village of Allonne which has easy access to the countryside and a bar/restaurant. Other shops and facilities are available 5km away in Secondigny or 13km away in Parthenay where there is a large swimming pool.

The gite is also only about an hour from both Puy du Fou and Futuroscope.

Nice house & garden

  • 4 of 5

I would have liked to had a larger fridge as the one provided was a little to small, would of been nice to have had a table and chairs in the court yard so as to have had breakfast

But for us we still enjoyed staying at voilet bleu

Thank you Nicky

Très bon sejour

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passés un très bon séjour dans cette maison ancienne pleine de charme. La maison est bien équipée, les chambres spacieuses. Il est appréciable d'avoir également la WiFi.

Nos chiens se sont régalés dans ce beau jardin clôturé.

En conclusion je vous recommande cette maison pour des vacances au calme.
