About our home

Stunning "belle maison bourgeoise" with 270 sq. metres of elegant living space. The house has been sympathetically renovated, retaining exceptional original features: floor tiles, marble fireplaces, beams, mouldings, ceiling roses etc... built in 1785 by a minor Parisian aristo for his pastoral lady love... and just ahead of the revolution!

Loire/Thouet bike path passes through the village and stretches for hundreds of kilometres ... fishing permits available at local bar... more info on our website

LOCATION: Department of Deux Sevres, in the centre of the small village of Taizon, on the river Thouet - near the market town of Thouars, 25kms from the sophisticated town of Saumur and 15 kms south of Montreuil-Bellay, renowned for its Chateau. The vineyards around offer endless opportunities for wine-tasting and buying. Taizon is right on the Loire/Thouet valley bike route.
