An exceptionally pleasing house with guest accommodation in a village with cafe/bar close to Le Dorat in the Haute Vienne, Nouvelle Aquitaine.

I am not quite sure where to start on this package, it has so much to offer and will suit most people’s dreams when thinking about a home in France.

It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and views, yet is in a village with bar and cafe/bar just a short walk away, it is a perfect home for two people or for a large family, it has some amazing and private outside living spaces including dining areas, pool area and its very own bar, should you want to stay home. But most of all it is a house which has been lived in, improved, nurtured and loved by the couple who have owned it for the last 9 years.

Situated at the edge of the village of Darnac, in the commune of Val D’Oire et Gartempe the house is just 5 minutes from Bussiere-Poitevine and only 9 minutes from Le Dorat, this is an exceptional opportunity to acquire a great package, with one house ready to walk into and a ready-made Airbnb letting or even two should you decided to convert the stable area (easily done). The current owners have never gone down this avenue and have only used the second house for family visits; but it would be a great opportunity for someone looking for a little extra income.

Bussiere-Poitevine has everything you need for everyday living with bars/restaurants/shops/bank/post office/garages etc just 5 minutes down the road; together with easy access to the Route Nationale (N147). Le Dorat has all off the above including a larger supermarket and a train station which has trains to take you into Poitiers where you have cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).

Limoges airport is 55km’s and Poitiers airport and train station are a 78km’s so plenty of choice for flights to many destinations.
