“Petit Versailles rochelais”
This majestic 17th century agricultural property still boasts many of its original features: woodwork, mouldings, vaults, archways etc.
In order to fully appreciate the splendour of this entirely-renovated property, you have to explore the cul-de-sac that leads to its driveway. The courtyard is festooned with French art: the result of a painstaking restoration job by specialist artisans using original materials. Its gateway epitomises this property’s style and highlights the craftsmanship that went into its restoration.
The interior is a bold combination of 17th century architecture and 50s French design trends. This innovative mix suits the property perfectly. The owner, himself a specialist in French design from the 50s to the 70s, enlisted the help of various renowned artisans in order to give the apartments a unique and modern feel. Light and space are used to full effect to create an impression on visitors. All of the bathroom’s features and fitting have been carefully selected for maximum aesthetic appeal. The paintings lining the walls serve to highlight the beautiful woodwork. All the apartments are fully-finished, separate and enjoy private access to the grounds.
The property is located around 10mn from the historic heart of La Rochelle, 5m from the Ile de Ré, on the border of the Mireuil district. This popular area has recently been the subject of an urban development program. Despite being located close the main road linking La Rochelle to the Ile de Ré, the only sounds that penetrate this enclosed estate come from the street.
