About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Susan Taylor

We are Martin and Sue, after years of holidays with our children in the Limousin we decided to buy a house in this most beautiful region.

Year property purchased 2007
Why this location? We bought our house in the picturesque Haute Vienne because the area offers peace, tranquillity and beautiful summer weather. This enables us to escape the intensity of a normal busy life in England. You cannot fail to be relaxed and feel recharged after spending a short while here. Although it is a very peaceful area there are many local places of interest including Lac Saint Pardoux, Park Reyou Zoo and the historic city of Limoges with its porcelain factories and Old Town.
Unique benefits of property The house is a fully renovated, 19th Century farmhouse which still retains many of its original features. It stands in its own extensive, secluded grounds and has its own 3 and a half acre fishing lake. The international airport of Limoges is only a 15 minute drive, and the Martyr Village of Oradour Sur Glane only 10 minutes away.

The Owner Recommends

Lac de Saint-Pardoux

Today it still has many outlets that sell its products. Some of the main sights include the market, the Chateau de La Borie, the remains of the 12th century Castle of Chalucet, the Cathedral of St-Etienne, the Crypt of Saint Martial and the bridges of Saint Martial and of St-Etienne.

We had the most wonderful week, as a party of four adults and two 13 year boys, Le Moulin de la Roche was everything we could have hoped for and more. Everyone enjoyed the relaxation of the lake with a few good sized carp being caught. Then the pool and the games room kept the youngsters entertained whilst us adults relaxed some more! Not once, was there an 'I'm bored' nor was there any mention of the XBox. If you're looking for tranquillity in a beautiful setting, yet enough to keep the young folk happy and those that aren't there for the fishing then this is for you.
