La Petite Ferme is located in the historic village of Dampierre sur Boutonne. The village boasts a Renaissance Chateau and a 12th Century church. The area is surrounded by countless fields of beautiful sunflowers and fantastic birds and wildlife. The current owners purchased the former farmyard in 1998 to begin a new way of life and an adventure in France , leaving behind the crowds and the traffic of England . They have lovingly restored some neglected buildings into comfortable accommodation retaining many original features. A garden has been created where there was none and it all makes La Petite Ferme a friendly place to spend a holiday and somewhere pleasant to return to after a day exploring the region. Since 1999 when they had their first booking, the owners have made many new friends some of whom now own holiday homes themselves in the area. Some have even taken the plunge and made the move to live in France permanently.
The cottage is a converted farm building on two floors, plus a mezzanine floor. We have retained original features such as oak beams and stone walls, there is a wood burning stove in the living area and a heater in the bedroom making this a delightful cottage for winter as well as summer breaks.
