At the end of a cul-de-sac of 5 houses (3 lived in), you have no passing traffic noises here only the sound of the river Brame gently falling over the weir towards the old Moulin, a sound which is as beautiful to the ears as the sight of this little piece of paradise is to the eyes. If you like river fishing, then look no further, it is quite literally on your doorstep!
In the commune of Oradour St Genest the closest village with shops to here is Bussiere Poitevine (9kms) and then the larger town of Le Dorat (12km) so even though the location seems like the middle of nowhere; you are actually only 9-12 minutes away from shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a train station.
Le Dorat is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche and within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, including the Collegiale Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat. The surrounding area has all year round attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft days; All year round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing, sailing and windsurfing in nearby locations.
Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (56kms) and trains in Le Dorat itself (12kms); having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.
The current owners bought the property in 2004 and have spent the last 13 years exploring the wonderful walking routes on their doorstep around the Limousin countryside; they are now looking to downsize.
