Prieure St Therese



Updated: 26-Oct-2016
Stunning 14th century Priory with a pool and next to a pretty church

The Prieure St Therese lies in a small village location in the Deux-Sevres department of the Poitou Charente region. It is about 70km inland from La Rochelle.

The house is a stunning 14th century Priory, next to a pretty church, 6 bedrooms, 5 bath/shower rooms to comfortably sleep 12 guests.

This is a very quiet area where the slow pace of life & air quality will really help you relax during your week away. It is also worth pointing out that the region is the second most sunny in France!

The Priory has been immaculately restored and renovated both inside and out. It is filled with antiques and objects d’art and is an absolute gem amongst treasures. With its original stonework it stands in splendour, privately enclosed in it’s own grounds.

There is a heated green mosaic swimming pool with jacuzzi, Roman steps and a 'swim-against-current' system. The walled and tree lined gardens flourish with their vines, fruit trees and beautifully maintained lawns and flower beds.

Ground Floor: Kitchen fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine & 2 fridges. Dining room that seats 12. Hall. Sitting room. Study. Satellite bathroom.

First Floor: 4 double bedrooms (2 with en-suite bathrooms).

Second Floor: Games room/dormitory room (for extra kids if necessary). 2 double bedrooms (1 en-suite). 2 bath/shower rooms.

Outbuildings: 2 garages. Carport with ping-pong

Outside: Outdoor rooms for dining. Private pool. Attractive grounds.

About the Manager

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.
