Steven Carter Independent Agent, says :
Pretty little town house in the centre of a charming village. This is really two adjoining cottages, each being one-up, one down. Covered in virginia creeper at the moment faces onto the village square and the church.
The village has a cafe, restaurant, bakery and a lake and is situated about halfway between Montmorillon and Le Dorat in the Haute Vienne.
Montmorillon is a thriving market town on the banks of the River Gartempe. The town has an extensive range of shops, schools, bars and restaurants. It is the home of the Cite de L’Ecrit which is a quarter of the town dedicated to books and art.
During the year the town hosts a wide range of activities ranging from a carnival to regular antiques shows, from the circus to the opera. There is a bi-weekly market in the town centre and, during the summer, a series of concerts, both classical and modern.
There is everything to do, but this will make a really pretty holiday hideaway. The rest is up to you.

The Haute-Vienne is still a largely agricultural department located in central France. It is divided into two by the Vienne River, which runs from east to west. In the middle it splits into another river, the Isle, which runs into the bordering department of the Dordogne. The principal industry is porcelain, most of which is manufactured in the departmental capital, Limoges.
The department has a number of natural and man-made lakes, such as the Lac de Vassivière and the Lac de St Mathieu, many of which come complete with beaches, fishing, boating and watersports.
Limoges has produced fine enamel work since the 12th century, and still exports a large number of exquisite luxury goods. It has a lively university and thriving nightlife, as well as an attractive city centre with major shops as well as winding narrow lanes with boutiques and cafés.
Other places of note are Bellac, a small town with just 5,000 inhabitants, which is close to the Lac de St Pardoux, as well as Rochechouart with its magnificent chateau built out of meteoric rock!
Limoges-Bellegard airport, 5 minutes to the West of Limoges, as direct flights to and from the UK, and has had significant investment to cope with passenger numbers. It is also possible to go by TGV to Paris and then onwards to the UK or other European destinations.
As the most accessible department within the Limousin prices in the Haute Vienne are slightly more expensive than the Creuse or the Correze, but bargains can still be found.
