With easy access from the UK, the town is ideally located for both holidays and full-time living, being also close to all the major attractions of the region. Surrounded by beautiful, rolling countryside of woodlands and sunflowers, Chasseneuil sur Bonnieure presents the perfect blend of town and country life.

All amenities on hand

Historical and interesting

In addition to its excellent facilities, this town also retains some attractive historical features, so it's well worth a little scout around. The church, now beautifully restored, dates back to the 11th century, while the town hall (Hotel de Ville) is also architecturally noteworthy. The memorial to the French Resistance is another point of interest.
