History, nature, and beauty come together in the 200-year-old Le Couvent des Ormes in the rolling plains of the bucolic French hinterlands. The three-story holiday home has a rich backstory. Built in 1820, the house was a school, a summer camp, and an artist’s studio, before donning its new avatar of a tranquil residence. It's located in a small village neighboring an open field that offers an idyllic view.

The house is large yet private, both inside and outside. The minimalistic interiors are a country lover’s dream, with double-height ceilings, wooden floors, and white-framed windows bringing in warmth and sunshine. The cross on the facade, an unfinished fresco in one of the classrooms-turned-bedrooms, and the bell are remnants of the house’s rich history. There are 14 rooms spread across three levels, including seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, a dining room, a fully-fitted kitchen, and a library. The fireplaces in the dining and living rooms are perfect for family and friends to cozily gather around a crackling fire during the winter. 

The striking building is cocooned by 100-year-old lime trees in a grand garden that encircles the property, with a majestic 15 m-long swimming pool and two ponds lined with water plants. Recharge with a swim, watch the sunset, read a book while sprawled on the grass, or simply enjoy the freeing greenery spread right before you. For some cultural adventures during your peaceful stay, pay a visit to the palatial chateaus and scenic villages in the area. In Toucy, vintage is what you'll get: from beautiful old wooden houses to art galleries.
