Charming former railway cottage in peaceful setting. Close to local amenities.
Sleeps 4, with 2 bedrooms. One with double bed, one with twin beds.
La Braudière was built in the 19th century, to operate the barrier over the railway line. Nowadays, the railway tracks are just a distant memory, leaving miles of leafy, tree lined paths, meandering through woods and open countryside. A walker's paradise!
This charming stone cottage has been thoughtfully renovated, with lots of original features – a successful blend of original character and modern comfort. It is simply and tastefully furnished, and the overall effect is bright, light and fresh.
Set on its own, the house is surrounded by fields, tracks, rivers and woodlands, perfect for exploring by foot, by bike, or maybe walking the dog! You're not too far from civilisation, however, as only 2 kms away is the village of La Trimouille, where you will find shops, restaurant, cafe, bakery, pharmacy, and cinema.
Located in the department of the Vienne, with its peaceful countryside, ancient castles and medieval towns and villages, La Braudière provides a brilliant base for a holiday. Enjoy the local amenities (the aroma of freshly baked baguettes from the nearby bakery, is truly mouthwatering). Settle into the slower pace of French life with a leisurely amble through the lanes, rich with wildlife. Explore the many tourist attractions of the area. Or simply sit in the garden, with a glass of wine, enjoying the spectacular night skies. Whatever you enjoy, there is something for everyone.
