Stunning location, with views as far as the eye can see.

Two fully renovated properties set in grounds of  14,164sqm, (3 1/2 acres) approached along your own private tree lined gravel drive into courtyard area with parking for at least 7 cars with stunning views over open countryside.

Set back from a country road, a few minutes from the local farm shop and Auberge …turning into your own private entrance between two lime stone pillars, takes you along a tree lined gravel driveway into a courtyard area to be met with stunning views over the Charente out across the Dordogne as far as the eye can see…

Both properties have been renovated to a high standard to enable them to both be habitable throughout the year, either one could be a main home so there is a possibility to have even greater income from rentals.  Many features have been retained but at the same time modern comforts have been added.  These properties offer flexible living options.

The buildings are in a private setting not overlooked, not isolated, in small hamlet only 5 mins from village.

FEEDBACK SO FAR After only 3 months “I would like to say we originally advertised with an agent, after 6 months with no viewings listed with PPS and one of your direct competitors. PPS is the only one where we have had requests for information and viewings. We have had 4 viewings and currently have one couple who are interested. PPS obviously have the right mix of websites because it works.”

THANK YOU PPS. I put my French house on your website fully expecting it would take at least two years to sell. Now less than a year later I have sold to French people – through your wonderful site and am starting my new life in Portugal. I bought the full package which included a ‘for sale’ sign which I put on the front of my building. No success with other advertising websites.
