Le Poussin was a farm workers cottage at La Poulerie, which as the name implies was once a chicken farm. The property has been sympathetically renovated retaining many of its original features. To the rear of the property there is a covered patio with tables and chairs etc., plus you have access to our 11 x 5 M heated salt water pool.
