The Grounds

When we set out looking for the perfect property to transform into a chambre d'hôte we were clear on two things - the location had to be quiet and the property had to be surrounded by its own land. We found both those things at Plaisance.

The Manoir is in the centre of over 12 acres of private parkland, and the silence is only broken by birdsong and the occasional owl at night. 

Whilst the grounds blend seamlessly into the French countryside around them, the park was infact the creation of an English landscape gardener in the early 20th century, with the placement of every tree carefully planned to create the beautiful haven that now exists.

Two lakes are also nestled amongst the grounds, both are supplied with fresh spring water coming directly from our source and are connected by a stream that meanders gracefully through the park, reminiscent of the Marais Poitevin. Why not bring along a fishing rod and enjoy the peaceful pace whilst waiting for the first bite from our resident fish?

We can supply picnic hampers for you to enjoy at lunch times in the grounds. Choose from one of the many tables dotted around the park, or take a blanket and find your own perfect spot. 

A 14m x 7m heated Swimming Pool is open late May - September, or for something a bit more active why not brush up on your tennis skills on the Tennis Court
