About David Grundy

I am a retired teacher who now lives in the village of Moussac. I live with my wife and grown up daughter and our dogs. I enjoy the outdoor life that Moussac allows me to have. I enjoy gardening and fishing and enjoying the beautiful river views.

As a family we are avid readers and enjoy exploring the history of the area.

David Grundy purchased this cottage in 1997

Why David Grundy chose Moussac

We love the region because of the beautiful landscapes. The good weather and excellent access to airports. It affords us a lifestyle that would be simply impossible anywhere else.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is around one hour from two airports. There are good train routes from Poitiers into nearby Lussac (around 10 minutes drive) for those who do not want to be tied to the car.

Futuroscope is around an hour away.

The property is one two levels, with a downstairs shower room and bedroom. This makes it an excellent place to stay for those with mobility issues.

The enclosed garden is wonderful. Our dogs are members of our family...but they like to escape! we have tried and tested our garden and so far so good!

excellent facilities in the cottage, kitchen very well equipped, with all you need on a holiday. Owners were very helpful with some good input.

Two things could be better, firstly, the bedroom downstairs could do with bedside lamps, second, if your not careful with the shower curtain, water leaks onto the bath mat below, other than that, absolutely fabulous stay, and the dog loved it as well, thanks david,hannah

If carlsberg did holiday cottages.....

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, we were welcomed by Dave into lovely Moussac which is a photographers dream with picture postcard settings of a little rural town at every turn. Its a great place for dog walking along the river up the railway path or pretty much in any direction you turn. Dave gave us loads of ideas for routes to explore with the hound and we had a great time doing it.

I just realised i havent got to the cottage yet... so, Rose Cottage.. it is a gem of a place and totally blew our expectations out of the water. It is a lovely wee house on the outside.. and so ewhat of a tardis on the inside. The house is brilliantly equipped with everything we needed and more. We spent the bulk of out time in the large kitchen area which was the hub of operations. Off of it there is a sitting room with a full array of british tv.

Upstairs is where the real magic is tho.. it is just the last type of bedroom we expected i a really really good way.

Overall, a superb cottage owned by a lovely welcoming family who live 2 minutes away. Next door is the local shop/bar/breadstick maker... the nearest intermarche is 10 mins away L'isle- Jourdain.. be sure to check out the thursday market and take the time to walk over the viaduct which has a parcour course next to it.

Overall, a glowing review which is very well deserved, thanks again Team Grundy for having us.

Lovely Rose Cottage

  • 5 of 5

little piece of heaven in rural France, a charming well equipped cottage set in a typical French Village. The owners cannot do more for you and make you feel extremely welcome. The area has such a lot to offer, the village itself has an excellent kayaking Centre, walking distance from the cottage. Would thoroughly recommend this
