Description from owner


For rent in France in the Haute Vienne, Limousin, an original signal house for lovers of the French countryside. In the village St Brice sur Vienne (16 miles from Limoges and a 20-minute drive to Limoges airport), you'll find our former railroad house. It is surrounded by woodland and is a 1-minute stroll from the River Vienne, a tributary of the River Loire.

The signal house is privately owned and furnished to the taste of the owners. It can accommodate 4 people in 2 bedrooms, and we do have another small folding single bed available for a small 5th person.

It has a spacious kitchen dining room with cooking facilities and a wood burner. Sofa table and chairs.

Also on the ground floor is a large bedroom with 2 single beds, a wardrobe, a wood burner and a shower room with washbasin.

There is also a toilet downstairs.

Upstairs is a bathroom with a shower and toilet.

There is a large double bed with table chairs and a large wardrobe.

The house no longer functions as a signal house. La Barrière (rail crossing) next door is automatic. There is a small local train passing by a few times a day that stops in the village, but you get used to this very quickly. There are trains from the village to Limoges, Angouleme and the local town of St Junien 5 min away.

There is a bakery, chemist and restaurant bar-tabac a few minutes walk from the house. The house is just outside the Northern edge of the stunning Périgord Limousin Natural Regional Park which stretches from the River Vienne, down to the Dordogne in the south of the park. There are stunning walks, cycle rides and drives in the surrounding area and kayaking available nearby.
