Le Petit Chausserais – Chiché

The Main House – Maison de Maître

The Maison de maître is the Master’s house, where the landowner would have lived and presided over the farming and hunting activity in the local area. Consequently the house is large but simple with an understated elegance. The house has been sympathetically renovated with care and attention to detail, focusing on the retention of original features whilst providing a comfortable, clean and modern environment.

The house has large gardens to the front, side and rear.  There is a flat grassed area to while away the hours playing boules or football.  The kids can play in the ‘play cafe’ set up in the outhouses or bounce on the giant sunken trampoline while you enjoy an apéro on the terrace!
