My husband and I have been enjoying the lovely village of Boutenac as a vacation spot for the past many years (since buying the house we have listed and in which you would be staying). Now that we are both retired, we also own a second house in Boutenac where we spend much of the year. Our interests are travel, meeting new people, renovation of older properties, and good food. We find the location in this area of France to be ideal for all of the above. We have three grown sons who have been coming here since the youngest was in what we Americans call Junior High. They all three love the casual simplicity, the relaxing atmosphere, the natural beauty, and the kindness of the people in Boutenac.
Come join us and discover this beautiful location.
