|Why this location?||Peaceful in the heart of the Charentais countryside, but within easy reach of Limoges airport only 30 mins away. Surrounded by the fields of working farms from sunflowers to cows, fantastic. The river Vienne is only minutes walk away where fishing is available and Chabanais our nearest market town within a 15 minutes walk, with all the amenities, supermarkets, butchers, boulangeries, banks, market every week. Only 20 minutes away are the lacs de haute Charente, where you can find swimming, sailing, wind surfing, horse riding and plenty of great walks.|
