What a lovely property this is; in Bellac in the Haute Vienne. For someone who wants all amenities close, but would like to see beautiful countryside on their doorstep; this is the perfect fit! Your very own extensive gardens all maintained by someone else with your park bench just 20 steps from your front door!

The cottage is in the valley below Bellac’s main town centre and the park straddles the River Vincou, just to the left of the beautiful old stone bridge this row of cottages sits under the granite hillside just as it has done for centuries. Originally a barn this is a very good conversion giving 3 good sized bedrooms a perfect lock up and go holiday home, or permanent home. I am quite sure you would get bookings on this little gem if you offered it out for holiday lets when you were not there.

Bellac is a village etape and has large supermarkets, cafe/restaurants and schools (all levels including a Lycee), the etape status means it is a small town, typically under five thousand people, designated to provide a complete set of services for national or provincial highway travellers. While most do provide natural or cultural landmarks, activities or attractions in some form, the core requirements address quality or hours of operation for amenities such as restaurants, grocers, lodging and tourist information. it also benefits from being on the Limoges to Poitiers railway line; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille). Limoges airport is only 30 minutes away for daily flights to several UK destinations.

The house benefits from mains electricity, water and drainage. It has electric radiators for heating and is double glazed throughout. Broadband is available.

Outside

At the back of the house accessed by the patio doors in the lounge is a small courtyard, a triangle 6m long and 1.5m wide narrowing to a point, this is set again the rock face of the hillside; quite unique and a very private place to dine, although I am told in summer it is also an exceptionally good sun trap!

To the front of the house is the Parc and gardens with its old stone bridge and the river gently flowing by. It is truly an idyllic and calming spot.
