Full Description

Reputed to be an old Hunting Lodge dating back to 1842, this superbly maintained property with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside sits in an enviable position, set on the edge of a quiet hamlet and accessed via a small winding lane leading to just 5 properties. Peace and tranquillity reign whilst all amenities (including supermarkets, bars and restaurants) are available in the nearby town of Montbron, less than 4km away. For the more adventurous this is an ideal location from which to explore the Charente or Dordogne regions, or for taking part in outdoor local activities such as walking, cycling, horse-riding, canoeing or for golfing at the nearby 18 hole international course. The historic city of Angouleme (French capital of the comic strip) is approx. 30km away offering many places of interest for visitors, a wide range of shops and restaurants and offers a TGV link to Bordeaux, Paris etc. In the opposite direction is Limoges, with its airport approx. 1 hours’ drive, offering daily budget flights to the UK.

This charming house oozes character, having been sympathetically restored to retain original features such as stone walls, beams and an original stone sink, and is in excellent order throughout.
