- 2 charming 10 sq.m bedrooms with 1 or 2 single beds;
- 1 separate WC with sink.
Electric heating is included in the charges, within a reasonable usage. 2 water tanks ensure plenty of hot water.

About Véronique MAAS
After 30 years of marriage and hard work (my husband is an engineer, I am a French professor) and raising our children (our 4 children are between 20 and 29 years old), we wanted to start a new adventure: restoring a very old house in a region that we love, each for different reasons. Olivier is fascinated by the caves, the carved sculptures of Angles-sur-l'Anglin and other Magdalenian remains, whereas I am never as happy as when I am listening to the Gregorian chant of the Fontgombault Abbey.
Véronique MAAS purchased this house in 2011
Why Véronique MAAS chose Merigny
We don't just spend our vacations in Beauchapeau. We also organize meetings in various domains such as theatre, kitchen, philosophy, Gregorian chant...

What makes this house unique
Beauchapeau is a magical place that can be the starting point for many walks and excursions by foot, bicycle, car or in canoe, and you can discover a region that is fascinating with its flora and fauna (the ponds of Brenne are beside) as well as its cultural heritage (the Fresco Valley, Saint-Savin, Montmorillon, Angles-sur-l'Anglin, Villesalem...all are nearby).
