In the heart of France, on the edge of the picturesque village of Augé, one hour from the Atlantic coast and the beautiful city of La Rochelle, lies ‘La Vieille Ferme du Monteil’. This lovingly renovated 18th century farmhouse sits in stunning countryside and is perfectly situated in the centre of the Poitou Charente renowned as the second sunniest region in France.

The farmhouse offers  relaxed but sophisticated holiday accommodation whilst retaining all the charm and character of an old French farmhouse and is set in 3 ha of grounds ideal for children to run around and watch the abundance of wildlife around the ponds and in the fields.

Whether you wish to relax, enjoy lovely walks in the beautiful countryside and visit the local villages or explore this beautiful region with its many attractions and activities, La Vieille Ferme du Monteil is an ideal base.

The property has two houses, ‘La Vieille Ferme’, sleeping 10+cot  and  ‘La Maison sur La Mare’, where we are resident during the summer months. During your stay we can offer extras like a welcome buffet, a selection of meals or can advise on days out and places to visit. We can also cater for small weddings, birthdays and anniversaries and are happy to discuss these options with you. Extra accommodation is possible for 20+ people within a short walk of the property.

A warm welcome and great holiday experience await and we look forward to welcoming you to La Vieille Ferme du Monteil.

Charles, Elaine and family.
