4 hours from Paris by road, with 340 km on motorways, 50 km from Limoges and its station with links to the French capital, 1 hour from Limoges international airport and its daily flights to Paris and Great Britain. In the centre of a village with local shops and 10 minutes from a small town with a farmers’ market, a supermarket and all shops, restaurants, cafés and a hospital. Not far from the Issoire Valley, a natural tourist site, in undulating, pastoral countryside where small fields surrounded by thick hedges alternate with deciduous forests.
This impressive building is constructed over two levels, with a third level installed in each tower. It has numerous old elements and some exceptional decorative features.
The east wing
This wing comprises a house that is totally separate from the main building as it can be reached directly from the street via its own gate. It has its own central heating system and even the courtyard, extending behind the house, cannot be seen from the main residence. This house comprises a large room adjoining a lounge, a living room and a large kitchen on the ground floor. Upstairs are no less than four bedrooms, a dressing room and two bathrooms.
The parklands and garden
A meadow, spanning a surface area of 2 ha on the south side, stretches out like a large green carpet from the residence as far as the neighbouring fields with their grazing sheep. A large duck pond is a hundred or so metres away on the left-hand side. A number of small buildings have been constructed over the centuries on the right-hand side of the residence. These currently form a sort of miniature farm with a shelter for goats, a henhouse, an old well and a bread oven as well as other buildings no longer in use.
A few wide stone steps lead down to the vegetable garden and the orchard, the local soil is rich and ideal for growing everything from lettuces to fruit trees. A stone gateway on the north side leads directly to the meadows. A little further away, a small grove of tall Atlas cedar trees enhances the superb view over the countryside.
This property is worthy of its history and constitutes authentic heritage on two counts: not only is it almost four centuries old, it also has the particularity of having been in the same family up until quite recently. Hence, its original internal decoration which has come down through the years, escaping passing whims of fashion and gaining a touching patina. Classification of its period hangings and wallpapers with the French Historic Monument Society is perfectly foreseeable and would help with their preservation. Although the vegetable garden is already completed, the parklands could be replanted and enhanced, a project that is ever more relevant since water and land are both in abundant supply, as the local cows can bear witness. Similarly, a large part of the living space is in need of various degrees of restoration, but said works are not essential, the premises being quite comfortable in their current state. The separate house could, if so desired, be rented out on a yearly basis or even weekly as holiday accommodation once some decorative works have been carried out.
