A Stately Home in the Maine-et-Loire Countryside

A Stately Home in the Maine-et-Loire Countryside

This manor was built by noble families of Maine-et-Loire in the 16th century. Once a diamond in the rough, it has now been polished up to perfection.

France’s west coast on the Atlantic and the Vendée region feature a smattering of stately homes across the countryside. Boasting turrets used as dovecotes in old times, and beautiful antique furnishings from that time, these stately manors were home to families whose legacies go back generations.

A few miles from Cholet and Puy du Fou, this peaceful haven, on the outskirts of a little hamlet surrounded by small towns, is fully-equipped for equestrian activities with stables and six horse boxes. A large fence leads to the entrance of this old 16th-century home, now fully-restored without any compromises on the original building’s old-worldly charm.

Surrounded by comfort and nature

On the ground floor, there’s certainly no want for space. The living and dining rooms feature French-style oak ceilings, granite fireplaces and the stone staircase leads up to seven bedrooms. As for the kitchen, it appears larger than life thanks to its veranda, offering a stunning view of the surrounding woods and 15 hectares of land enclosed by a river.
