About Frans Spijker

Hi , I am Dutch by nationality, married and we have one son. My profession made me work for a large international company and had us live for the last 25 + years in 8 different countries around the world . Since 2012 we settled down in Portugal , from where I engage in SME business consultancy.

Frans Spijker purchased this villa in 2008

Why Frans Spijker chose Les Forges

The French country site has always attracted us with its rolling hills and vast views.Around Les Forges it is excellent golfing,walking , biking and lets not forget it : dining.....Towns like Poitiers and La Rochelle are max 60 car minutes away. Both have have historic centers with many nice restaurants and La Rochelle has a first class Marina- as a keen sailor one of the reasons for selecting Les Forges !

What makes this villa unique

L'Aveneau is a small scale development ( 24 properties) of which the first phase is completed. It features a comfortable heated pool close to the property ,but also not too close ..... The development is laid out spaciously with lots of green around the houses, each with a minimum plot size of around 800 m2 ..... The Golfclub is at 20 mins walk, features a superb 27 hole golf course and a very good and homely restaurant.

It is this homely ,cosy, country side atmosphere all around that made us go for this place !

We are sure you will experience the same , so come and stay !

Heerlijk verblijf

  • 4 of 5

In augustus hebben wij een week verbleven in dit heerlijke huis. Het huis is ruim opgezet en heeft een prachtige grote tuin met veel privacy. Er zijn verschillende terrassen, waardoor je vanaf sochtens tot savonds zon in de tuin hebt. We hadden mooi weer en hebben zo optimaal kunnen genieten van de tuin en het nabijgelegen zwembad. Het park is rustig, wat maakt dat je helemaal tot rust komt. Aanrader is om ook de kust te bezoeken op ongeveer anderhalf uur rijden. La Rochelle is een prachtig plaats met een mooie haven en stad. Voor ons was het ideale vakantie en we willen Frans bedanken voor zijn gastvrijheid!

Car: recommended

The villa is located in the spacious development L'Aveneau with another 20 villas and amenities like a heated swimmingpool. It is close to Les Forges a sleepy village in the middle of the beautiful French country side with its rolling fields and herds of sheep, ideal for cycling and walking tours. The impressive Castle Les Forges is at walking distance as is the fantastic 27 holes gold course. The lively Marina and harbour of La Rochelle are at around 50 mins driving, whilst the historic city of Poitiers with its futuroscope is 30 mins away. The area furthermore has many attractions , such as theme parks, " green venice" close to La Rochelle
