Set in the small village of Pouille, Ferme Verger is a restored farmhouse, with spacious, versatile accommodation that is great for families and strikingly stylish. Lose yourself in this countryside setting of fields, orchards and the beautiful garden of wisteria and hollyhocks. Whilst still having an authentic farmhouse feel, with wooden beamed ceilings, open fire places and stone walls the house is modern and sophisticated, decorated and furnished to a superb standard.
The rooms are light, airy and spacious; this is a fantastic property to get the family or friends altogether, if however you wanted some time out, there are many different areas in the garden and house where you can hide yourself away to relax. There is a salon where you can relax quietly with a book, watch a movie on the home cinema system, listen to music or for family entertainment play a game on the console. After swimming in the heated pool, you can unwind on the sun deck or enjoy a family meal on the terrace where there is a covered BBQ and cooking area. If you can tear yourself away from this stunning retreat, there are lots of places to visit in the region.
The nearest town is Fontenay le Comte,a town of art and history, there is a regular market where you can pick up local produce, restaurants and shops. Visit the historic village of Vouvant which has been listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, a pretty village set on a hill with the river Mere surrounding it, cross the footbridge and go under the original gate dating back to 1557. This is a charming village with its narrow streets, medieval buildings and ramparts. Mervent forest is close by and is a wonderful family attraction; it offers lots of outdoor activities, cycling, kayaking, swimming, an adventure park and even a zoo. The coast is only about an hour’s drive away and so is the popular theme park Puy de Fou.
