About this property

Time to Relax. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

The property is a large old stone Farmhouse, not sure when it was built, but hundreds of years old.

Large driveway off the small road, enough space for about 4 cars if needed.

The property is situated in its own private very large fenced garden with a small private swimming pool.

Trip Advisor review from August 2019:

A fabulous farmhouse with great hosts in a lovely rural amazing place!
We were lucky enough to stay at Les Chouettes last summer and had a great family holiday with our two young children (aged 8 & 6 at the time). The farmhouse is really spacious with lovely exposed brickwork and timbers (just remember to take care with a number of low beams!) Our hosts Debs and Garry were extremely attentive to our every needs and as they live on site they are always on hand should you need advice on where to eat, places to visit or just a chat and a drink!. The kids loved the pool and garden that has an extensive barbecue area and they also loved the Limousin cows in the adjoining fields! There’s loads to do for the children such as a nearby large lake with a well maintained sandy beach, kayaking at Brantome, pedalos and boating at beautiful Confolens and a quirky velo-rail at Roumazieres. We had an absolutely superb holiday at Les Chouettes and will hopefully be returning in the near future.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Deborah Smith

We moved to France in 2005 with our 2 girls and haven't looked back. The girls both went into mainstream school and Garry and I renovated our farm house where we have lived for the last 10 years renovating the gite too, just opposite.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? We chose this property due to its proximity to the town of Chabanais and the airport in Limoges. We are also situated near Angoulême, a wonderful ancient typically french city, Bordeaux is only 1.5hrs away. Cognac only 1 hour away, so well situated for some great places to visit.
Le Mastizon is only 10 minutes from the Lacs de Haute Charente, where you will find beaches, swimming and water sports.
The town of Chabanais has boulongerie, boucherie, bars, restaurants all within a 10 minute walk.
The property is situated in the farmland of a chateau and was infact the farmhouse for the farm of the famous Limousin cattle, of which are still breed at the chateau today, so plenty of cows to be seen.
Unique benefits of property Rural, but within walking distance of a town, so the best of both worlds. Plenty of places to visit. The coast only max 2 hours away.
