FRENCH MANOIR HOUSE IN QUIET AND PEACEFUL AREA

La Trimouille Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

11 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 20 comfortably

This Manor house built in 1801 is the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. It will comfortably house three families and with seven acres to roam in there is always the possibility of finding somewhere quiet and peaceful. In the grounds there is a private heated swimming pool and hard surface tennis court. The grounds also go down to the river where you can canoe and fish. Inside the house there is a fully equipped kitchen, large dining room and separate lounge both with open fireplaces for winter comfort. There is also a utility room and downstairs WC. There is a guardian who lives on site, in a separate house, who will help out with any problems or emergencies and the occasional babysitting.

Local ameneties: Although the house is in a quiet rural location, it does not take long to get to the local towns which offer good shopping and eating facilities. A little further away is a golf course, Le Manoir de Beauvoir. Also available is fishing on a lake behind the house with consent of the next door farmer, can be arranged via the Guardians.

There are markets on in all the local towns each on a different day of the week, all offering lots of local produce.

For a full day out you could aim for the beach at La Rochelle it will take about 2 hours via Poitiers. Also there is Futurascope which takes about 40 minutes by car. If you are here on the 29th of any month there is a market at Les Herolles - it is one of the eldest in France said to date back some 500 years, it is well worth a visit and I promise that you could buy anything from a loaf of bread to a tractor and of course a donkey and a couple of geese, it takes about 15 minutes to drive.

For the more adventurous a TGV goes from Poitiers to Paris taking about 90 minutes.

Comments from Owner Guestbook

A most relaxing holiday even the children did not want to leave and are already asking to come back again. Also managed to do some painting while I was here, first time in years.

We are Grand Parents that treated our children and grandchildren to a much deserved family holiday, it worked out great, the children loved the pool and building a camp and we had a great tennis competition going. We ate lots of superb local produce and sampled several wines. Highly recommended.

Séjour agréable entre amis

  • 4 of 5
Nous étions 21 pour ce weekend de mai entre amis: endroit charmant, propriété vaste, 11 vraies chambres, piscine chauffée à notre arrivée, propriétaire arrangeant.
Seul bémol : la déco est un peu datée et les finitions pas au top. Au vu du tarif, ceci est largement acceptable.
Nous recommandons vivement le manoir pour un weekend entre amis ou en famille!

Un lieu très agréable pour des vacances entre amis

  • 5 of 5
Le manoir est très spacieux et très bien insonorisé, ce qui est agréable lorsqu'on est nombreux et avec beaucoup d'enfants !
La piscine très propre et bien chauffée (et bien sécurisée avec un portail clos avec un cadenas) nous a permis de profiter au maximum de notre séjour au mois de mai, même pendant les quelques jours sans soleil, et les enfants étaient ravis !
Il y a quelques activités sympathiques à faire en famille autour de la Trimouille : l'île aux serpents (5 minutes en voiture), l'abbaye de saint-savin (20 minutes), les géants du ciel (spectacle oiseaux) à chauvigny (30 min), ou encore un parc avec des crocodiles...
Un supermarché à moins de 10 minutes et une supérette à 5 minutes permettent de gérer les courses au quotidien et c'est bien pratique.
Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et prévenants, et à l'écoute bien qu'à distance. Il y a aussi la possibilité de se faire livrer à diner avec un traiteur à proximité.
Pour les "indéconnectables" nous avions un accès wifi moyen via sfr wifi public (il faut être abonné neuf ou sfr pour s'en servir). Le réseau téléphonique orange capte la plupart du temps ; pour les autres réseaux c'est + compliqué.
Enfin, Jeanne la gardienne (sa maison est à 50 mètres du manoir, au sein de la propriété), est sympathique et très serviable. Certaines parties de la propriété comme le terrain de tennis (qui reste néanmoins praticable) et les balançoires ne sont pas très bien entretenues donc ne pas tout miser là dessus.
En résumé : nous recommandons vivement cette location !

Manoir du Cervolet

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Manoir du Cervolet was fantastic and we've all had the time of our lives! The house and grounds are absolutely stunning and we felt at home immediately. The weather was wonderful, so the pool was perfect for cooling off. Even my 75 year old father had a swim, something he hasn't done for years!

The children and teenagers all had a fantastic time and it was great for the young ones to roam freely in such a safe environment.

We've all come back relaxed, tanned and a few pounds heavier. Everyone commented that it was one of the best holidays they've had.

Fantastic place, fantastic house, fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5
A large group of friends stayed at this fabulous place in July. The pool and patio were perfect. The pool was very safely fenced, which was great because we had three toddlers in the party. The living rooms were charming, but because the weather was so nice were hardly used. The bikes in the orangerie were a pleasant surprise. The kids had fun exploring, playing tennis, swimming, riding the bikes, playing boules etc etc etc.

The surrounding towns and villages are very pretty and Poitiers is lovely. There was a huge local market nearby (once a month) - very interesting with local delicacies, trinkets, animals, a bit of everything really (not sure if I saw a kitchen sink, but it was probably there!).

The only slight downside is that the kitchen is quite small for such a large house.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone.
