Set in a very small and quiet hamlet, only 2 minutes from Benest and 11 minutes from Champagne Mouton; this really is a lot for your money; and the way it is laid out would lend itself to rental opportunities. The main house was originally a row of cottages; which have all been lovingly restored and now make a very nicely sized 4-bedroom family home.

The obvious renovation project here is the cottage (not that hard a project as all the walls are solid and it has water/electricity), but equally so the garden stores and barns are of good stone construction and would make even more living space or a great space for someone coming to France wanting workshops next to their home.

Nanteuil-en-Vallée is only 17 minutes’ drive and is a must see for most people coming to this beautiful region! A little further afield (20-25 minutes or so) are the larger towns of Civray, Confolens & Ruffec where you will find even more amenities.

The house, which has 166m² of living space is set on 1600m² of outside/garden area and has been lovingly renovated and only the best materials and suppliers have been used, quite simply a home of high quality.  Facing the house, you have a cottage and barns, all owned by the property; giving this a lovely courtyard feel and begging to be developed into something more.

Confolens is on the river Vienne and is known for its yearly music festival, which has a worldwide following, not to mention an area on the river where you can pan for gold! Here you are only 30 minutes from the gateway to the Regional Natural Parc of the Perigord-Limousin and the Charente Leisure lakes (Lac du Mas Chaban).

Getting to the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges, Angoulême and Poitiers, all around 60 minutes’ drive from the house and trains at Ruffec (26 minutes) having links to services to Poitiers train station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London & Brussels.

The house has Broadband/UK TV Satellite, mains water, and electrics, gas (Bottled), Oil fired central heating and wood burning fires for those cosy darker nights. It is double glazed with the exception of the doors and drainage is to a Fosse fitted in 2008 and inspected in 2017.

A semi-rural setting, but with good links and access is not easy to find and I believe this is one of the reasons why this would be a great little earner for someone wanting to move to France or get an income from a holiday home without compromising their own living space.
