The Deux-Sevres region is one of France'’s best-kept secrets – peaceful, laidback and sunny. Filled with lazy winding rivers and blessed with a mild micro-climate, it is the perfect place for a truly calming and restorative getaway. And where better to stay than La Belle Échappée, with its luxuriously appointed rooms, heated swimming pool, and beautiful views. The house sits within one hectare of walled and gated grounds, with plenty of space for activities on site, but also within easy reach of the coast and a number of popular tourist attractions. Come and explore the delightful Poitou-Charentes for yourself.
