Full Description


This period home is the jewel of the hamlet and sits proudly in its own surrounding grounds and well before any of the other houses on the road into the hamlets centre. It has many original features including original floor, fittings and fireplaces. The house is a short walk from the river Brame so if you like river fishing, then look no further, it is almost on your doorstep.

The closest village with shops to here is Bussiere Poitevine (9kms) and then the larger town of Le Dorat (12km) so even though the location seems like the middle of nowhere; you are actually only 9-12 minutes away from shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a train station.

Le Dorat is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche and within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, including the Collegiale Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat. The surrounding area has all year round attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft days; All year round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing, sailing and windsurfing in nearby locations.

Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (56kms) and trains in Le Dorat itself (12kms); having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.

The current owners bought the property in 2007 and have spent the last 10 years keeping its original features well maintained as well as exploring the wonderful walking routes on their doorstep around the Limousin countryside.

The house has mains water and electricity, gas (Bottled) and the heating is a mixture of a wood burning insert fire and wood burning stove. Drainage is to a fosse which conforms.
