The owners of Le Manoir des Couts in Poitou-Charentes recently renovated the 16th-century manor house. The original home was in a sad state but had many wonderful features including a beautiful front façade. The owners faced many challenges restoring such an old property. It took a skilled artisan to oversee the entire project. They decided to respect the integrity of the property and maintained its original design. They purchased furniture mostly on the Internet or on occasional road trips. They feel France is a bargain compared to Britain where properties are significantly more expensive.
“Poitou-Charentes is southern but still ‘green enough’ – it’s said to be the second sunniest area in France.”
