Full Description

This bright, spacious RIVERSIDE APARTMENT is part of an old monastery IN THE HEART OF THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGE of Vouvant. The monastery has been sensitively converted to create a selection of homes set within 15 ACRES OF PROFESSIONALLY MAINTAINED GARDENS with a SWIMMING POOL and RIVER ACCESS. Being in the heart of the village, SHOPS AND SERVICES ARE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE. This two bedroom apartment is on the first floor and has views over both the Romanesque church and the shared monastery grounds.

The apartment has a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a spacious living/dining area with double aspect. Access to the balcony is from the kitchen. All of the rooms have a feature stone wall. The bathroom is fitted with a large shower cubicle, bath, wash basin and toilet, fitted extractor fan and wall mounted heater. Residents have access to satellite TV and internet connection. There is electronic key fob entry for residents and telephone entry for visitors. Residents have a private car park with their own designated space and there is a parking area for visitors.

The present owner has lived here full time for 11 years but says the apartment is also ideal as second home or as a rental investment.


The 2 main local towns are Fontenay- le- Comte and Chataigneraie - each of which has a host of shops and supermarkets. Fontenay boasts its own chateau and museum. There are many and varied restaurants, ranging from Middle Eastern to pizzas. Every Saturday there are also indoor and outdoor markets selling fresh produce, clothes, bags and many home products. Nearby is the huge forest of Mervent with many activities including water sports, hiking and, nearby, a well kept zoo. Waterside restaurants and bars are another feature of the area. The little town of Mervent is know for its amazing view of the river and tree canopy and is definitely worth a visit.

The old port of La Rochelle is approximately one hour away, it has an abundance of shops and restaurants and a lovely market. The airport is close by as is the toll bridge to the beautiful Isle de Re. The other 2 serving airports are Poitiers and Nantes; all just over an hour away.

Vouvant itself has many attractions going on throughout the year; it is known for its huge vide grenier (antique and bric a brac market) every July and for its 14th July firework display over the river Mere. Many artists hire studios and display their artwork in the village and during France's annual festival of music Vouvant holds an event which varies in form from year to year.
