Nestled away towards the edge of a large village, down a private driveway with a small stream on its farthest border, (The stream to the rear of the property has never been flooded due to the flood plain on the opposite bank) this is quite simply a little piece of paradise. Sitting on the covered jetty, by the riverside watching the ducks go by. As I looked across the little stream to the fields beyond I quite forgot I was in a bustling village which has all the amenities needed for everyday living.
The property has been completely renovated, to a very high standard; the garden shed has windows of a better quality than my own home! The reflective double glazing is super effective gas filled for increased insulation, with internal blinds within the glazing topped off with electric shutters. The roof has been taken off, felted and meticulously redone to incorporate as many of the old tiles as possible. Higher than required levels of insulation have been used within the walls and roof space, no expense has been spared; this couple have taken a lot of care and given a lot of thought to everything they have done to this property.
The village is a nice easy walk away, no need to get the car out every time you want a little something.
Poitiers airport and train station are about one hour 20 minutes drive away, Limoges airport is just over one hour's drive. Angouleme is 30 minutes away and Cognac just an hour's drive.
