Super example of a grand ‘Hôtel Particulier’ or town mansion, the property was lovingly restored from ruin in the late 1980s.

Gracious and spacious, with plenty of original features – stone staircase, decorative wall and ceiling mouldings, towers, caves and perhaps hidden passages!

Ideal boutique-hotel project or family home.

Benefitting from updating at the end of the 1980s, the property is connected to the mains drains. A new boiler (town gas) was installed in 2019 and the radiators are equipped with thermostats. A modern lift services the ground floor, first floor and vast attic, which has two tower-bedrooms, WC and shower-room and space for many more.

Situated in the centre of the medieval heart of Thouars, the property is a secret oasis of calm, hidden in nearly an acre of mature garden - one of the biggest private plots in the town - within a few minutes’ stroll of bars and restaurants, the main chateau and museum, and the famous weekly market just 10 minutes’ walk away.

Thouars has a railway station (1.6km) which connects to Saumur (TGV), Bressuire and the summertime beach-trains to Sables d’Olonnes and the Vendée coast.
Nearest airports: Poitiers 65km, Tours 110km, Nantes 130km, La Rochelle 162km.
