In Love with La Poudriere of 1669
A stone’s throw from the docks of the river Lys, this incredible structure is centred in the heart of the “Pre Carre” citadel, which during the last few centuries has flourished into one of the most spectacular private arboretums in the north of France.
A history rich with intrigue and with all the creature comforts !
Today La Poudrière is offered to you all as an original gite holiday house. We also cater for professional events and celebrations as well as exclusively offering the space as an artist residency and workshop area. All rhythms are welcomed !
Managed by the Association des Amis du Bastion Nord de Saint-Venant (Friends of the Northern Bastion of St Venant) and Didier Rousseau, proprietor and gardener of the famous Park and Garden complex La Peylouse !
