The first thing that struck me about this house was how sympathetically and where possible; accurate the restoration has been; giving the house a feeling of still being in a different time, but with the comfort of everyday luxuries we expect in a house. Set in a quiet little hamlet not far from Le Dorat and Bellac this house is renovated to a very high standard with a good sized garden and very well maintained barn and Yurt.

Property features:
Swimming pool
Immediately habitable
Includes barn
