The Nook is sympathetically and traditionally renovated 16th Century stone cottage, with all the comforts of home. Whether your seeking medieval architecture, rural walks, cycling (located on La Velo Francette national cycle route, with a choice of shorter routes close by), or a base to explore the local French countryside (there's lots to do within an hour's drive) then The Nook could be just what you're looking for.

Stedet
The Nook has been renovated using traditional methods and materials, sympathetic to the age of the property. The walls were taken back to the original stone and either lime mortar pointed, leaving some of the stone exposed, or lime plastered and then lime washed. Where it has been feasible, we've kept original features, like the stone fireplaces, old oak beams and wooden flooring. Where this was not possible, we have either renovated with new materials or sourced reclaimed materials, like the quarry tiles on the ground floor. Our love for the original story of the house has meant that it has it has retained some quirks! The stairs are narrow and a little steep and the bedroom floor has a few lumps and bumps, but please don't think less of her for it, she's around 500 years old! The ground floor of the property is open plan with specific kitchen, lounge and dining areas. The 16th Century stone fireplace is the stand-out feature of the room and was a real find as, when we bought the property, it was hidden behind a partition wall! The kitchen is equipped for as much or as little cooking as you feel like doing. The lounge area is comfortable and cosy with seating for three. There is a TV with French freeview TV receiver box. The Bedroom on the first floor is large and has double aspect windows, making it a lovely light room. There is one double bed and one single day bed, together with an en suite shower room.
The property is situated in the heart of the medieval village, next to the 12th Century church and 18th Century stone, covered market halls, where there is a weekly market held every Saturday morning. You are just a couple of minutes from the local epicerie, butchers and bakery. Also the local Tourist Office is just the other side of the market halls. We hope you will enjoy staying in The Nook as much as we've enjoyed renovating her.

Nærområdet

Airvault, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Frankrike

Airvault is situated in the valley of the River Thouet which is a tributary of The Loire. Records date the establishment of the town of Airvault from the 10th Century, with parts of the fortified Chateau, the Church and the Abbey dating from the 11th and 12th Centuries, no doubt the fact that the town (and especially the Abbey) was a stop-off point for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella in Spain, helped Airvault grow into a bustling market town. In front of the Church of Saint-Pierre there is the (now subterranean) public spring which was the only water source in the town until the 19th Century. And, in the narrow, ancient streets, you will still see some medieval, half-timbered buildings. It is because of this rich heritage that the town was awarded the title of “Petite Cité de Caractère” in 2011.
Within one hour's drive from Airvault, you have a number of attractions: Saumur and Chinon in the Loire Valley; Puy de Fou theme park near Cholet; Futuroscope theme park near Poitiers; the Marais Poitevin near Niort.
In addition, Airvault is situated on the National Cycle Route "La Velo Francette" and there are a number of local cycle routes around Airvault. We have adult bicycles for the use of our guests, free of charge, should you wish to explore the surrounding area.

My husband, Steven, and I moved to Airvault, France from the Isle of Wight at the beginning of 2017. Prior to moving here, we have spent time traveling around Europe in a campervan, but we're always drawn back to France. In our previous life our path has been a varied one, from legal secretary to part-owner of a launderette in my case, and for Steven, from car mechanic to historic building restoration via window fitter and wedding vehicle chauffeur! Our holiday accommodation has been sympathetically renovated by Steven (with a little help from me) using traditional methods and materials. Respecting the previous story of the houses we renovate is our passion, and we hope this shows through in how we present our holiday accommodation and in how we present ourselves as your hosts.
