Deux-Sèvres Property For Sale

Map of Poitou-Charentes

The Deux-Sèvres (named after the two river Sèvres that run through it) is most famous for the Marais-Poitevin – a picturesque network of tree lined canals known as La Venise Verte or the Green Venice! If you can afford to buy property here, do!

But Deux-Sèvres property offers buyers of all budgets one of the best combinations of climate, accessibility and house prices across the whole of France.

The Deux-Sèvres benefits from the same micro-climate that caresses La Rochelle and Charente-Maritime but being inland it is sheltered from the Atlantic winds that sweep across the Vendée.

You can access your Deux-Sèvres property via the nearby airports of La Rochelle or Poitiers and while it is a long drive from the channel ports, St.Malo in Brittany can be done in 4 – 4.30hrs. Best of all the département is on a TGV route with a stop at Saint-Maixent l’Ecole! Thanks to this and Eurostar one of our clients caught the train in London and arrived in her house in St Maixent L’Ecole in 4hrs 10mins door to door. Quicker than flying!

Needless to say Saint-Maixent L’Ecole property is quite sought after with a commensurate premium on prices.

Deux-Sèvres property prices are lower in the north around Bressuire where the climate is cooler and granite predominates. As you move south through Parthenay prices rise and the granite gives way to a lovely soft yellow/cream stone similar to Portland stone. Prices in the south west of the department hold up best because of the climate and proximity to the sea and La Rochelle.

Very desirable but semi-isolated Deux-Sèvres property can be snaffled up at bargain prices – the trend is increasingly for property within walking distance of a village so there is less demand for the more remote properties. But wise buyers know they can have their cake and eat it! Most services are brought round to the villages, the roads are excellent and all children can be picked up for school by the rural bus network – the norm across France.

There are lots of rivers, lakes and inland beaches so if your property has to work for a living to help finance the move then why not cater to the fishing, canoeing and kayaking fraternities? A 45 minute drive will take you to the Massif Central for skiing!

If funds permit why not buy into the chocolate box dream of the Marais-Poitevin? Tourists flock here to rent picturesque waterside B&Bs and gîtes and hire flat bottomed punts or ‘barques’ to navigate its emerald green waterways. Coulon property would guarantee a handsome return on your investment – officially one of the ‘plus beaux villages de France’ this is the capital of Green Venice with punts, boats and canoes for hire and many excellent waterside restaurants and shops. Much of this watery wonderland can also be enjoyed on foot, by bicycle and by car! Arcais - a similarly charming village - is also on the Marais-Poitevin tourist trail.
