Stunning location, with views as far as the eye can see, a property that really needs to be viewed to fully appreciate what it offers.

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.

The cottage has a good rental history of both summer holidays and long term rentals as the location of the local area offers many attractions all year round.

Whilst the main house and cottage have been made into two individual dwellings they could easily be made into one large property or the larger property could be a rental and the cottage the main home.
