Welcome to the Logis de Pierre Levée

Ideally located at the gates of Niort and on the edge of the Marais Poitevin, in a bucolic setting, full of authenticity and charm, you will only need 5 minutes when leaving Niort by the South to find us and come and appreciate this timeless interlude.

We welcome you in Logis de Pierre Levée, our family property for 3 generations, to share with you its charm and quietness. Located on the hillside and overlooking the former Gulf of Pictons, now the Marais Poitevin, Le Logis de Pierre Levée has gone through history, to reach us today. Built around the 15th century, this stately home has preserved elements of the past, such as its tower, its bread oven and a few underground passages, the secret of which remains well kept by our family. Property of the family of the Lords of Chateauneuf until the first rumblings of the Revolution, Le Logis de Pierre Levée then passed from family to family, until Jean Richard who was born here in 1921. He spent his childhood there, discovered his passion for animals; passion, which he later cultivated by creating “la Mer de Sable” in Ermenonville (Oise) in 1963, the first French-style amusement park, then later the Jean Richard circus. Our three rooms are located in the main Logis, and translate some of these multiple stories. Last but not least, our property is well secured thanks to Mezo our faithful and kind companion, as well as our two large gates enclosing the property for a safe parking.
