Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: I am a direct descendant of the original Acadian people. My ancestors were deported from Nova Scotia to France. The Spanish government transported Acadian exiles from France to Louisiana on the ship 'Le Saint Remi,' and it arrived in Louisiana on September 9, 1785. I was raised in a family of seven children . Since I was the oldest girl I helped my parents with the younger children, and helped in the family business. In high school I was a cheerleader, a band member, and in l960 I was crowned the 1st Crawfish Queen. I love music, cooking, gardening, and flower arranging. I have four beautiful children and twelve grandchildren. I love speaking in French, and meeting people.
Why the Owner Chose St. Martinville, LA, USA:
In June 1986, my Mother gave me two and a half acres of property that belonged to her grandfather, Renee Chauffe, Sr. It was through the grace of God that I stumbled onto an old house built by Andre' Boudreaux in 1935. I was taken by surprise when in the house there was a picture of Christ as the High Priest holding the Chalice and the Eucharist and it said,'Christ Wants Your Heart.' I knew instantly that this house was very special, and in 1989 I began remodeling it with the understanding that one day I would love to tell my story of 'La Petite Voie'. I am so proud of my Acadian heritage and so thankful that my mother and father gave me a piece of history and today it is my privilege to invite guest to feel the peace and tranquility of 'La Petite Voie de St.Therese.'
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is with true devotion that I invite you to 'La Petite Voie' de St. Therese knowing full well that you will feel the Spirit of Peace, Love, and Understanding. The home accommodates 5 people comfortably with a precious full kitchen, and a lovely dining area. The living area, bedrooms, and bath are enhanced with antique furnishings and allows one to feel that they are taken back in history. A small box of Coty powder is placed on the bedroom vanity exactly like I remember it in the Chauffe Plantation House. The foyer and the living area is really quite charming and there you will enjoy satellite TV, music video, and books to read. Guest will definitely feel comfortable on the outdoor wrap around porch with a swing, cypress rockers, and sofa sitting areas. A unique cypress piece is the outside cistern that preserves water for watering the plants. There is statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that comes from the Convent in Grand Coteau and a statue of St. Therese, my patron saint, was given to me by my RCIA class. The azalea bushes in the springtime are beautiful and the live oak trees are so stately and are always bursting with beauty. There are pecan, golden rain, red tip maple, magnolia, and Bradford pears trees that are waiting to greet you when you come to visit. It will be a pleasure to welcome you into my home with heartfelt gratitude. Come share an experience of Cajun Country hospitality. and a retreat away from home. ,
