The cottage is situated in the hamlet of Le Puynard, close to the charming village of Sommieres Du Clain, in the Vienne region of South West France. The cottage is at the end of a small lane, leading to tracks which run up through the fields, perfect for dog-walking, cycling or hiking. We welcome up to two well-behaved dogs by prior arrangement.

The cottage is a 10 minute walk from the village, where you can find a grocers, boulangerie, pharmacy, bar tabac, restaurant, hairdressers and doctors surgery. A 15 minute drive will take you to the market town of Civray, with its weekly market, supermarkets, veterinary surgery, and a large range of shops and restaurants.

 PLEASE NOTE - the cottage is situated in the middle of a working farm, with farm buildings and machinery close by, and all the ambiance you would expect from this! Dogs must be kept under strict control at all times please.
