Good Wednesday morning! This riverside manoir run as a B&B in Deux Sevres, France is totally charming me this morning! There’s a magical quality to the river running by, with two small islands to explore – I can imagine long summers en famille, with the children running wild and making believe.
This home is warm and generous, with eight bedrooms total and four and a half acres of lovely gardens. It’s in the middle of a gentle landscape of rivers and streams, close to the beauty of the Loire Valley. I can imagine soaking up a long, slow summer here with lots of joy.
From the listing on Leggett:
With approx 300m river frontage below the house, plus 2 river-islands, this elegant, light-filled Manoir is a truly magical place, perfect for attracting guests to the 5 BnB rooms and 2-bedroomed apartment. Double-glazed, oil-fired central heating, woodburners. 1.8ha total plot. Bread, bar-restaurant Voulmentin 3km, all essentials Argenton-les-Vallées 6kms.
