The property is situated at the end of a private road and is surrounded by over three-quarters of a hectare of woodland, grassland and landscaped gardens with a swimming pool.

The principal house is accessed by solid oak double doors which open to the reception hall. Beyond this are four well proportioned reception rooms and the kitchen and domestic offices. The original staircase leads to four en suite bedrooms plus two further bedrooms and a dressing room. The independent guest/staff cottage has two bedrooms and a bath/shower room. This overlooks the courtyard at the back of the house where you will also find a selection of outbuildings and access to the swimming pool with its terraces, private garden and veranda.

Easy and close access to Saintes, Rochefort, La Rochelle and Bordeaux, the Atlantic beaches, and thus not "lost" in the hinterland.


The manoir is in a small, well maintained hamlet which resembles a traditional Cotswold village. It is about 2 kilometres from the market town of Saint Porchaire which has a wide range of shops, essential services and a weekly market. It is surrounded by open countryside and woodland with plenty of rural paths for walking or riding. The large town of Saintes is around 15 kilometres away. The beaches of the Atlantic coast can be reached in 20 to 30 minutes and you are within an easy drive of La Rochelle with its beautiful harbour, waterside sea food restaurants and international airport as well as the fabulous island of Ile de Re which is a holiday destination for the discerning. Just south of the Ile de Re, is the Ile D'Oleron, the centre of Oyster production on the Atlantic Coast.
