The house is situated in La Boucherie, a small village of 9 houses surrounded by farmland. It is an old farmhouse with a rear garden of half an acre. There is a road at the front, but there is very little traffic as the only other building before the road ends is a barn.

There is ample parking on the quiet road in front.

The nearby town of Beaulieu sous La Roche has two restaurants, two boulangeries and a bar.  

There are large supermarkets and a choice of restaurants in Aizenay, 4 miles away.


The upstairs consists of a large bedroom, two medium sized bedrooms and a bathroom.  The bedrooms all have windows to the front of the house.

There are wooden floors, exposed beams and a wood panelled ceiling.

  • The main bedroom and second bedroom have double beds.
  • The third bedroom is ideal for children, containing bunk beds. A Z-bed can be provided if required.
  • The bathroom contains a shower, wash basin and toilet.


The garden at the rear of the house is just under half an acre.  There is a flat section by the house which can be used for games.  It then slopes down to a small stream, which is the boundary. There is no access to the stream, so it is safe for children.  Across the stream there are fields, which have recently been used to grow maize or for cattle to graze. There is also a small pond.


The downstairs consists of a large lounge, a dining room/kitchen and a bathroom. The lounge has a large feature fire place, ceramic tiled floor and wooden beams.  A patio door opens out into the large rear garden. There are 2 futons which can be used as settees or beds.

  • The dining room has a large table that normally seats 6, but can be extended.
  • The kitchen adjoins the dining room and contains a dishwasher, microwave and electric cooker.
  • The downstairs bathroom contains a bath, wash basin, toilet and washing machine
