La Pipette Sixteenth Century House in Rural France

La Pipette is a large house standing in an acre of garden in the small village of Fontenille, part of the twin communes of Fontenille-Saint-Martin-d’Entraigues. In its heyday it was part of a much larger fortified farm. Its owners have included a counsellor to Louis XIV. Meals are not provided but there is a fully equipped kitchen. If I am at home then I would be happy to share cooking with guests. I am often away and guests will have full use of the house. Fontenille is about an hour by road from Poitiers, an hour and fifteen minutes from La Rochelle and two hours from Bordeaux. The village does not have any shops or cafés but there is a full range of shops, a hotel and restaurants five km away in Chef-Boutonne. The larger town of Melle, fifteen km away, has a good range of shops and several cafes and restaurants. There are markets in the vicinity most days of the week.
The house has four bedrooms. The guest bedrooms do not have en suite facilities but there is a bathroom and WC exclusively for the use of guests.
The nearest airports are at Bordeaux, Poitiers and La Rochelle. There are railway stations at Niort and Poitiers. I can collect visitors from these airports and stations. Use of a car is possible. I have two cats. Cats are welcome, but sorry no dogs please.

About Me
I am a retired Royal Air Force Pilot. Since taking early retirement I have devoted much of my time to research into, and writing about, the history of the Hundred Years War. I have four published books and a fifth on the way.
