This is our lovingly renovated 16th century house. It is full of French character and history with original features such as the large high ceilinged rooms, wide sweeping oak staircase, exposed beams and original fireplaces, yet has all the modern comforts you would expect in a well-equipped home. Over three floors, the main house consists of a large hall, kitchen / eating area, sitting / dining room, 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The garden is laid mainly to lawn and is arranged in three sections. The top is a comfortable place to relax in the sun or enjoy a BBQ; the second is an enclosed pool area, where you can spend lazy summer days in the sun or under the shade of the teuil trees. The bottom area is where the swings and trampoline are located as well as off road parking for the property. Plenty of space for all......
The propertys' fantastic central location in the middle of the beautiful town on Rochechouart will give you the opportunity to explore one of the most beautiful and undiscovered parts of central France.
This property is located close to several fabulous swimming lakes with lovely sandy beaches, cafes and playgrounds. Guerlie Plage (located 10 minutes drive from the property) has a great selection of watersports and sailing, as well as a super equestrian centre. For walking or cycling enthusiasts there are plenty of tracks to enjoy the beautiful and unspoilt countryside and for those who are interested in a spot of fishing - plenty of lakes and rivers close by boasting a variety of fish, inclding carp and trout (local licence required but easily & cheaply obtained from the local tabac or online)
Further a field - why not enjoy an informative and slightly boozy tour of one of the neighbouring regions well renowned and fascinating cognac houses - including Remy Martin, Hennessy and Martell.
You will be able to take a gentle stroll through the cobbled streets to buy your fresh produce from the local shops, or stop for a quiet drink at one of the shady cafes under the lime trees. The local Chateau of Rochechouart is just a few minutes' walk away, as is the beautiful church with is spiral steeple.
