Private swimming pool
This holiday property is in a quiet location in the hamlet of Coubortiges and has its own private, solar-heated, salt water swimming pool (33m², open May-Sep). The owner lives on site and across from the house there is a large, covered, private annexe with an additionnal fridge and table and chairs, or, should you prefer to be in the sun, there is a further sitting area by the pool where you have another set of table and chairs.
The garden is fully enclosed and has a play area with a swing, and there is a also large games room with table football, pool and table tennis. There is a very good restaurant within 2km, otherwise all services are in the very pretty town of Melle which is 6km away and famous for its silver mines. Try to visit the market at Lezay, one of the best in the area and Chef-Boutonne which includes an ancient château.
The Futuroscope at Poitiers is just over an hour away, there is a beach lake just over 15 minutes away at Celles but if you prefer the sea, Fouras is a great place for a day at the beach and is an hour and a half’s drive.
Shop 6km, restaurant 2km.
