Warmth and tradition are found throughout as you contemplate family furniture, mixture of contemporary art, antiques, colors and textures, in a charming blend of centuries. Five acres of landscaped grounds looking out over the swans on the River Touvre, offer you a magical getaway. A unique place for you to hold a private party, a wedding, or a business meeting.
