La Paisible is a light, bright and airy holiday home with lovely open aspects. Traditional metal shutters keep the house cool in summer, gas central heating and a wood burner make it cosy in winter.
Renovated and equipped to a high standard, it's a lovely mix of old and new with many of the original features having been retained.
There are two excellent sized bedrooms, a large living dining space, midnight shower room and well equipped kitchen. Large traditional windows ensure that the house is very light and the living room has French doors into the garden.
The small attached and gated garden has a large wisteria hedge, a lime tree offering shade, an old pump and trough .. the pump has recently been home to a family of blue tits ... and a gazebo with rattan type furniture for outside dining. There is also a stone outbuilding used for storing garden furniture and logs for the fire.
The neighbours are a lovely mix of French and British. A five minute walk takes you to the village proper where you'll find the bar/restaurant, patisserie, pharmacie, post office, small tabac/supermarket, the Mairie, community hall and lovely old church.
Chabanais is a few minutes drive away and there you will find more cafés, restaurants, a mix of shops, the railway station and outdoor swimming pool. Fifteen minutes takes you to St Junien with its old town centre, modern shopping area, swimming pool, cafes, cinema etc. Alternatively head to the lovely old city of Angouleme and discover why it's known for its cartoons.
The local area is known to the French for it's lakes with swimming beaches and water sports, it is still something of a well kept secret to others. You can drive to the west coast in a couple of hours, be in Paris by Eurostar from nearby Limoges or by TGV from Angouleme.
All this and the house and village are easily accessible from Limoges airport which offers several flight a week, the ferry terminals and Eurotunnel.
La Paisible is a lovely choice in all seasons, the countryside in this area of France is particularly beautiful. For availability and prices please email or phone. I'll come back to you asap.
