Chateau in Chef-Boutonne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France
In the South of the Deux-Sèvres, close to the border of the Charente Maritime, lies this Logis
115890PBE79 - A rare find - a logis with history dating back to the XVIth century. The logis is nicely renovated and in a quiet and private location. Yet within walking distance of a little village with superette, bakery, restaurant, library, post office, primary school, garage, medical centre and pharmacy.
The guest house has been constructed in what was probably a 'brulerie' to prodcuce wine. This second property provides additional revenues and is a perfect holiday home in a quiet setting with plenty of character and a nice outlook over the paddocks.
With approximately 12 acres of land - divided in private gardens, paddocks and forests. Both properties have their own access and private walled gardens - privacy guaranteed!
