Summary
Beautiful former farmhouse located in a pretty village (La Chapelle-Thireuil) in the Deux-Sevres department. Just an hour from the Atlantic coast, and 30 minutes from Niort, the house is conveniently located to enjoy the best of the local amenities and attractions.

The house has plenty of character, and is in good condition. The house is around 100 years old, with modern renovations made over the past 15 years. It has been decorated in tasteful way, and maintained to a high standard, which is especially necessary due to the property being used partially for holiday rentals in the summer.
