B&B in an old fortified French farm + basic camping offered

Bedrooms 1
Property type chateau / country house


About the property

We are a family run business, located in the heart of the French countryside on the border between Deux-Sevres and Véndée. We have lived in France since 2005 and bought our fortified farmhouse 4 years ago, from which we are now running a B&B and camping facilities.

Situated approximately an hour and a half from the coast, the local area offers a range of tourist facilities whilst still benefiting from a tranquil environment. Most of the nearby towns host weekly farmers markets.

Our 7 acre property includes a thriving vegetable plot, an assortment of poultry and neighbouring cows.

Pets welcome , dogs etc allowed in rooms but cannot be left unattended. Dog kennel facilities are available on site by reservation.

Biker friendly !

Regards, Pete and Vikki

About The Owner

This is our second major property renovation in France and by far the most interesting!

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why The Owner chose La Forêt-sur-Sèvre

Saw it first when we were looking for another home and totally fell in love. Required full renovation, roof replacements, the lot. Almost finished the house and land reclamation is going well.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Medieval history, massive fireplaces in most rooms, large covered terrace for Summer dining, fire pit for the cooler evenings or dine inside in our huge banquet room - available to hire for events too.

Relaxing rural environment but close to all amenities. Come and relax with us!

Super !

  • 5 of 5

Vicky et Peter sont charmants. Leur ferme fortifiée est splendide. Ils ont fait un travail incroyable de rénovation. Il y a beaucoup de charme...

La table d'hôtes est extra ! Délicieux.

Notre chien a été très bien accueilli et s'est bien amusé avec leurs gentils toutous...

On recommande !
