La Bretonnière was built in 1828 for Alexis Touchard, descendant of a member of the court of Francois I in the 16th century and the house has seen various uses, briefly being used as a refuge for injured resistance fighters during the War. The walls of the formal gardens predate the house back to its origins as a farmstead, of which the attached gîte formed the house.
Set in lovely parkland gardens with surrounding organic wildflower meadows extending to just under 15ha, woodland and a natural fed lake, this property is a paradise for nature lovers.

The property also includes a gite and outbuildings, offering plenty of opportunities for additional income.
The property was originally built in 1828 and has been beautifully maintained and updated over the years. It offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of French history while still enjoying all the modern amenities.
