The Property

This beautiful and rare-to-find waterside home is nestled in a valley, on the banks of the River Goire, which runs through the garden and over a barrage making a lovely waterfall. The closest neighbours are a couple of minutes walk away up the hill, behind the house, but otherwise, there is seclusion. The gardens are extensive with flowerbeds and lawns, a vegetable plot as well as fruit trees and soft fruit bushes.

The house and Gite have been renovated.  The house has been totally rewired and an environmentally friendly heat pump installed to ensure underfloor heating, in all the main downstairs rooms and heaters upstairs – the lounge has a woodburner to provide a focal point during the darker times of the year.  Electrically heated floor in master bathroom.  The Gite is heated by a woodburner.

The property is beautifully situated and although rural, is conveniently placed, being just a couple of miles from the pretty and active town of Confolens, where there are numerous shops, supermarkets, a weekly market, Schools, Doctors and a hospital.  The countryside in this area is very picturesque with undulating hills, beautiful trees and hedgerows of wild flowers.

For those who need easy international access or for visiting family and friends, Limoges with year round low cost flights is just 45 minutes away, whilst Poitiers, a good alternative, is just over an hour. The closest ferry ports are St Malo, Caen or Le Havre all approximately 4 hours drive away.
