The House is set a little apart from its tiny hamlet, surrounded by the small private vineyards and rolling farmland of rural Charente. It is only 45 minutes from Limoges and 1 ½ from Bordeaux airport, with a train station in Angouleme.

There are 6 bedrooms (4 of which have ensuite bathrooms), a swimming pool, table tennis table, and three different outdoor eating terraces as well as plenty of indoor communal living space complete with two log burners and a further open fireplace, and 5 bicycles. There is also a working artist studio.

The immediate surrounding countryside provides ample opportunities for long walks and there’s a rich variety of beautiful cycle routes both on the doorstep and further afield, linking to an array of nearby French villages.

Five minutes drive away is Chasseneuil-sur-Bonnieure, which provides the nearest supermarket, three bakeries offering fresh produce every morning, and a weekend street market. Fifteen minutes drive is the slightly larger La Rochefoucauld, with a choice of restaurants and bars and its signature chateau, which is open to the public.
