Marval's unrivalled location

The little village of Marval lies in the Limousin region of southern central France... but only just! It is also close to the borders of the Charente and the Dordogne, placing it in an unrivalled location for anyone who wishes to explore these lovely parts of France from a peaceful and pretty rural base.

Pretty French village

Marval provides the ultimate "French village" environment, with its pretty houses, quaint streets and couple of village shops, providing postal services and basic amenities. Unusually for its size, it also has the luxury of an excellent bar/restaurant, whose cuisine comes highly recommended!

A land of plenty

If you love fresh green countryside there is no better place in France than the Limousin. Unspoiled and picturesque, the green fields support all manner of agriculture, and you can see the fruits of this fertile land everywhere you look. The markets are bursting with local goodies, and the restaurant menus full to the brim with locally raised beef, delicious duck products and regional fruit and vegetables. There is no market in Marval itself, but just over six short miles (ten kilometres) away in Piégut there is a fantastic weekly market.

Things to see and do

Marval has a lovely Romanesque church, and plenty of charming traditional buildings. A bustling metropolis it is not, but it is a truly delightful example of a rural French village, and it enjoys one of the prettiest settings you are likely to find. All around the village are a profusion of lakes (notably, Le Ferme du Lac, a paradise for fishermen and birdwatchers) and rivers for fishing and swimming. And there are meadows and forests which beg you to explore them on foot, on a bicycle or on horseback.

Out and about

There are chateaux to visit, ancient villages to discover and the big towns of Limoges, Bergerac and Périgueux all accessible for when you really need a day in town. There are plenty of sporting opportunities in the region too, with tennis courts, golf and sailing all available close to Marval.

How to get there

There are a few airports within easy reach of Marval, and the two nearest are Bergerac and Limoges, both of which are served by flybe and Ryanair. If you like to take the train, following your journey from London on the Eurostar, you can take a TGV from Paris and arrive in double quick time at the station of Angoulême.

Property prices and availability in and around Marval

Marval benefits greatly in the property pricing stakes by lying in close proximity to the popular Dordogne, yet not actually sharing its postcode. It is the ideal place to look if you love the Dordogne, but can't afford the price tag that goes with it! Marval... and the countryside that surrounds it... is also a perfect spot for anyone seeking rural property to renovate, or for those whose French dream encompasses a property with its own lake.
