Welcoming you to Étusson
This is a beautifully renovated farmhouse in Deux-Sèvres. Once in ruins, it has been transformed into comfortable, welcoming and modern gites and B&B accommodation, whilst retaining many traditional features. It has all of the essentials for modern living and yet has the charming features of the bygone days. Set in beautiful French countryside with views over fields to the village of Étusson, it is relaxing and peaceful, ideal for cycling, walking, fishing and kayaking.
The neighbouring villages of Argenton-les-Vallées and Nuiel Les Aubiers have shops, hairdressers, pharmacy, boulangeries, butchers, markets etc. – in fact everything you need for today’s lifestyle. We are only a short drive from larger towns including Bressuire, Vihiers, Mauléon and Thouars. There are also many tourist attractions within easy reach: we are only 40 mins from the Puy du Fou – an historic theme park with lavish theatrical extravaganzas, 20 mins from France’s largest Oriental garden and only a few minutes from Chateau and wine tasting.
Your hosts, Elfed and Lisa, are originally from the UK and are here to provide you with a warm welcome and comfortable stay. We moved here in 2018 as a family with our youngest daughter, Beth, and our two welsh border collies, Monty and Judy. After long military and financial services careers, we moved to France to enjoy the slower pace of life, wonderful countryside and friendly people.
