The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some traffic

La Grosse Talle is an old manor farm, the first written texts of which date back to 1724. The present building has probably been rebuilt several times in the past centuries with original elements.
The gîte is located in the old part of the 'maîtres', at the front of the house. Because of its location, you have all the privacy you need, but you can, at will, spend more or less time with the other guests or hosts.

Ground floor: comfortably furnished living room with wood burning stove (insert), well equipped kitchen, sofa bed.
Behind it is a room with access to the bathroom (shower, toilet, washing machine), the staircase and a bookcase. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each for two persons. A cot and a folding bed can be placed in the cottage.

The stone walled, well maintained, south facing garden is in front of the gite, and our guests have access to the entire property (1.5 ha) and of course the swimming pool. Parking is available in the driveway next to the gite (exclusively for the gite residents).
On the grounds there is also a small campsite (6 places).

Located in the south of Deux-Sèvres, in the heart of Poitou-Charentes, in a rural area, 500 metres from the sources of the river Sèvre Niortaise. A hilly area, with fertile red soil and deep lanes, which cross the area in large numbers and make hiking/cycling a fantastic activity. The small towns of Melle and Celles-sur-Belle ("petites cités de caractère") and the other special villages, towns and cities have a southern French character, not least because of the white limestone and the red roof tiles.
La Rochelle, the Marais Poitevin (the French Giethoorn) can be reached by car in respectively 45 minutes and an hour.

Restaurants, food & wine

True to French tradition, the inhabitants of Deux-Sèvres love good food and drink. Typical regional dishes are the Farci Poitevin, the Tourteau Fromager, the Fouace from La Mothe-Saint-Héray...
The Deux-Sèvres has the largest goat population in France, and this is reflected in the large number of goat cheeses, one of which is an AOC (a second is on the way).
By the way: the Deux-Sèvres has the largest number of AOCs in France: two goat cheeses, one wine, Angélique de Niort and the Beurre d'Echiré!


The area is excellent for exploring by bike, on foot, on horseback, by car. There are marked walks everywhere (Sepvret is on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella!).
The cities and towns are without exception worth a visit. An incredible number of Romanesque churches (on the list of monuments and Unesco World Heritage), the largest burial mounds in Western Europe and the modern museum of Bougon, castles and fortified towns, modern art of great quality, the large number of festivals and the typical French markets and "vide greniers" make a visit to the Deux-Sèvres a great holiday.

Further remarks

There is a possibility to enrich your stay at La Grosse Talle with some coaching sessions: owner Jan Nagel has set up the coaching office Bilance in Niort. Bilance helps you in the interesting search for your personal values, interests, thinking styles, choice styles, competences, strengths and weaknesses, educational and professional preferences, blockades that prevent you from making your decision, etc., etc. The result is..... learning to find answers to your questions and... regaining the will to give life a new impetus.
