Full Description


This is a superb renovation, the quality of the workmanship shines through.

Set in a small hamlet, this really is the perfect house; spacious, fully renovated; with views over the valley towards the Gartempe valley.

The village of Bussiere Poitevine is around 7 minutes away, and has shops, bar, bank, pharmacy and a boulangerie to name a few the larger towns of Montmorillon and Le Dorat are around 25 and 15 minutes with all their shopping, bars, restaurants and amenities.

Such a rural setting, but with good links and access is not easy to find and I believe this is one of the reasons that the current owners have been very successful with their gite.

Poitiers airport and train station are about one hour away, Limoges airport is also one hour's drive.

The property itself rests towards the end of the hamlet, with double access gates leading to the house and just under an acre of manicured private gardens, with a well for watering; and a beautiful pond next to the old oak tree complete with swing and exceptional views over the Gartempe valley.

The current owners have renovated the property to give it the benefit of a gite; it is quite simply perfect, the attention to detail is second to none. This now generates an income for the couple giving them 20 weeks bookings last year (17 weeks in 2016) and with bookings already in place for 2018.

The house benefits from mains drainage, electricity and water. It is double glazed and has a new roof, new electrics, new everything! The house also has oil fired central heating with a wood burner in the Lounge for those cosy nights in. Satellite TV and broadband are installed.
