This renovated country house is set in a typical French hamlet attached to a small cottage rarely used by its English owners. The location is ideal for nature lovers with great walks from the house and a small river accessible via paths in the surrounding fields. The property boasts a private pool, and large sunny terrace for outside dining and relaxing, with a small enclosed garden and a further 3.5 acres of land comprising woods, field and path to river are also great for exploring. Mareuil, only a 5-minute drive, has pretty château, bakery, restaurants and all supplies. There are more shops in picturesque Brantôme, which sits astride two rivers and is a lovely place to spend the day browsing the shops and narrow streets. Why not take a canoe down the River Dronne, or explore the fabulous countryside on foot or by bike. The region is famous for its fresh local produce and foie gras delicacies. Most towns have colourful weekly markets and stage cultural events.Ground floor. Entrance hall. Utility/shower room/WC. Living room with wood-burning stove and French windows to terrace and pool.
