In a sunny, green and scenic corner of Deux Sevres, near Chiché, lies the quiet hamlet of ‘Le Petit Chausserais’. The Maison de Maître is the elegant and simple house that has been the destination for many a happy family holiday.
Le Petit Chausserais is within easy reach of numerous airports or an easy drive from the Normandy ferry ports. This part of Poitou Charentes enjoys unspoilt, beautiful, rural countryside, making it a popular destination for artists. There is a huge variety of attractions and history on the doorstep.
The climate in Poitou Charentes is warm and sunny. Heat is transferred to the area by the Gulf stream and trapped by unusually high levels of isolation, meaning that despite it’s latitude, the region enjoys temperatures comparable to more southern climes. Luckily, there are lots of lakes in the area to take a dip and cool off! And the beautiful Atlantic coastline is in easy reach for a day trip.
