Maison à vendre - ORADOUR ST GENEST

This period home is the jewel of the hamlet and sits proudly
in its own surrounding grounds and well before any of the other houses on the
road into the hamlets centre.  It has
many original features including original floor, fittings and fireplaces. The house
is a short walk from the river Brame so if you like river fishing, then look no
further, it is almost on your doorstep.

The closest village with shops to here is Bussiere Poitevine
(9kms) and then the larger town of Le Dorat (12km) so even though the location
seems like the middle of nowhere;  you
are actually only 9-12 minutes away from shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets
and a train station.

Le Dorat is the traditional capital of the Basse Marche and
within the ramparts of this ancient town are some fine examples of Romanesque
architecture, including the Collegiale Saint-Pierre-de-Dorat.  The surrounding area has all year round
attractions including horse racing (French style) sound and light shows; craft
days; All year round markets as well as concerts, tennis, cinema, fishing,
sailing and windsurfing in nearby locations.

Getting to
the area is easy with flights from many UK airports into Limoges (56kms) and
trains in Le Dorat itself (12kms); having links to services to Poitiers train
station where you have TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux, London &


The current
owners bought the property in 2007 and have spent the last 10 years keeping its
original features well maintained as well as exploring the wonderful walking
routes on their doorstep around the Limousin countryside.


The house has mains water and electricity, gas (Bottled)  and the heating is a mixture of a wood burning
insert fire and wood burning stove. Drainage is to a fosse which works
perfectly well, but may need some updating.
