Welcome to Deux-Sevres-Holidays
Logis Marguerite stands apart from the farmhouse, the main house on the property The property is one off 6 farms forming a small commune called 'La Richardiere', So called because Richard the Lion Heart rested in the area on his way to the Holy Land during the Crusades Prices start from £250 to £550 per week sleeping 6 .A small supermarket in the nearby village is less than 5 minutes away. Most shops are open to 7 30 pm, but watch out for the 2 hour lunch time break in smaller places (often garages close as well).Logi Marguerite is situated near the large town of Bressuire, which almost directly west of Poitiers on the map. The Futuroscope at Poitiers, and the lovely beaches of the Vendee coast are an easy drive away.
We have tried to maintain the old French style of the cottage maintaining the old Oak beams but adding modern facilities, with a Swimming Pool on the doorstep. The country side around the property offers the nature lover chance to experience wild boar, and Deer and many more types of wild life. Why not take a walk to the ostrich farm just down the road.
A small selection of places to visit
And for the History lover a must is to visit The Castle of Bressuire is one of the most precious specimens of the military architecture of the middle Ages. (OK the British did take it in the 15 century with no loss on either side.) Or take a short Drive to Parthenay medieval architecture, including narrow streets and timber houses for any history buff, it’s definitely the place to go.
"Puy du Fou" a must see about 45m Drive from us.The history of Puy du Fou as a theme park started in 1977 when Philippe de Villiers, a twenty-seven-year-old student (now a French politician), decided to create an original show named "Cinéscénie".When he discovered on the 13th of June 1977 the ruins of an old renaissance castle in the village of Les Epesses near Cholet, he wrote a scenario about a local family named Maupillier (the real name of a soldier of Vendée at the time of the conflict between Vendée and the French Republic during the French Revolution), spanning from the fourteenth century until World War II.Phillippe de Villiers organised an association of 600 members (3650 today) named "l'Association du Puy du Fou" which has as president today Phillippe de Villiers' son, Nicolas de Villiers.It has since spawned its own micro-industry of actors, prop-makers and trainers for the featured horse riding and sword fighting, which, since 1998, has been due to the efforts of the "Académies Junior" who organized shows every year outside the Cinéscénie, such as the Paris Paname in the "Halle Renaissance" of the Grand Park, in March 2008.The Grand Park of the Puy du Fou was opened near the Cinéscénie in 1989 and is today one of the most popular theme parks in France.
