The LogisThe logis itself provides the main accommodation, being set between the independent guest accommodation and the fortified tower.

Ground floor

The front door opens to a magnificent entrance hall (47m²) with flagstone flooring and a monumental fireplace. From here a corridor provides access to a large laundry room (12m²) and a stone staircase to the first floor. The remainder of the ground floor comprises store rooms and the boiler room.

First floor
The stairs rise to a landing from where a door opens to the formal dual-aspect sitting room (50m²) with wooden floor, exposed beam ceiling, a fireplace and glazed doors to a terrace that runs along the back of the logis, overlooking the formal gardens. From this room a door opens to a smaller sitting room (30m²) with terracotta-tiled floor, fireplace and doors to the terrace.

There is a door from the smaller sitting room that opens back to the landing, and another door that leads through to the dual-aspect dining room. This room (31m²) has a terracotta-tiled floor, a fireplace and a door to the terrace.

To the far side of the dining room a door then opens to the kitchen (38,2) with stone floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed stone walls, a monumental fireplace and a door to the terrace.

First floor

The stairs continue to the first floor landing. To the far end is the master bedroom suite comprising a bedroom (16m²), a shower room and a well-fitted out dressing room (15m² - this room could equally be used as a bedroom as there is a door back to the landing). Off the landing are two more double bedrooms (21m² and 20m²), one of which has an ensuite shower room.

Terrace and Round Tower

Running along the back of the house is a raised terrace which steps to the garden. This terrace is accessible from the reception rooms and the kitchen. To one end of the terrace is the Round Tower. In here there is a pretty summer room (19m²) with fireplace and potential to create a room above it.Guest wingAn outbuilding next to the logis has been tastefully converted to provide comfortable guest accommodation. On the ground floor there is a self contained gîte with living room (36m²) with sitting, dining and kitchen areas and two ensuite bedrooms (13m² and 12m²).

Above this, and reached via a covered flight of stone stairs, is a large room (71m² - currently used as an office) and another room (18m²). It would be perfectly possible to turn this into another gîte as the pipework is already in place. This floor is also accessible from the kitchen of the logis via a covered passage.The TowerThe tower is believed to date back to the 15th century and provides both impressive accommodation and impressive views.

Whilst there is an access from the courtyard, a former drawbridge from the formal sitting room provides access from the logis.

Ground floor
The ground floor of the keep was built as a vaulted cellar. From here a stone spiral staircase rises to the first floor.

First floor
There is a vast reception room (45m²) with stone floor, very high exposed beam ceiling and an immense fireplace. Off this room is a smaller room (10m² - formerly the oratory). With access from the formal sitting room, this floor is perfect for entertaining / dinner parties.

Second floor
The stone staircase continues to the second floor, which shares the same floor plan - a large reception room (45m² - this time with a wooden floor), a huge fireplace and a smaller room (10m² - formerly a chapel).

Third floor
The stone staircase continues to the third floor, which shares the same floor plan - a large reception room (45m² - with a wooden floor - this was formerly the guards' room), a huge fireplace and a smaller room (10m²).

From this room a door opens out to a covered walkway that encircles the tower.

At the top of the tower there are large attics.OutbuildingsThere are extensive stone outbuildings that provide covered parking, storage and stabling for horses (about 260m²).ExteriorThe buildings sit in an estate the covers about 21 hectares, with formal garden, lawn and woodland. To the front of the logis is a large courtyard around which the dependent buildings are ranged. To the back is the formal knot garden. From here there is access to lawns and the woodland.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a historic monument in a great location. The renovations have been undertaken in an extremely sympathetic manner resulting in a comfortable home with income potential and scope for further development (subject to relevant planning permissions). The city of Poitiers, with its airport, TGV line and great shops is less than an hour away.

Deux-Sevres is a department in the Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes region of France. The climate is mild in this part of France and the department remains mostly rural: three-quarters of the area is made up of farming land. The most important town in Deux-Sevres is Niort. Not far from Niort there is the 15th century Chateau de Cherveux. The area also offers the medieval centre of Parthenay with castle ruins on the River Thouet. The town of Thouars is also in this region and has a splendid, 17th century castle to explore.
