Our house is a "longere" which is an old house and barn joined together so all on one level. We have renovated it over the last 6 years and it is now of a high standard but still retains some fine French features. Outside is a large and easily maintained garden, to the rear, a balcony and pool deck accessable from the bedroom.

Angouleme Bergerac, Bordeaux, Poitiers,

Angouleme has a very pretty old pedestrian centre, with all modern stores and supermarkets at the edge of the city and in the suburbs.
The river Charente flows through the city and boating trips are available nearby. About 3 miles from the city is a water centre with several large indoor and outdoor pools, and a sailing lake

We live just in the Dordogne and are very central to large cities, Angouleme 15 miles, Perigeaux 28,Bordeaux 65 miles. The house is in a "petit hameaux" of ten houses, whose neighbours are French, British, and Dutch. Our nearest town is Villebois Lavalette 2 miles, where we have all necessary amenities, shops, doctor,dentist etc

The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.

My husband and I retired here nine years ago and love living in France. We would like to visit our married daughter who lives in Melbourne this would be an opportunity to exchange with people who could enjoy our house in France, while we could be with our daughter but be independant too.
