Why John Lillywhite chose Scillé
Scille is in the Deux Sevres is only 3 kilometres from the Vendee border and this part of France, which was for centuries ruled by English Kings, is full of historic cities such as Poitiers, Nantes, Bordeaux, [ now with its new Museum of Wine ] and La Rochelle. The house is not overlooked, has plenty of parking space for visitor's cars or vehicles, and an extensive and interesting garden.
What makes this Apartment unique
La Cure, Scille, has a unique atmosphere. From the garden the church bell can be heard throughout the day and Mass takes place there every three or so weeks. Bird life includes woodpeckers, owls, cuckoos and buzzards at various times of the year and animal visitors include a red squirrel.
