Ref. code: p-Fr-00210-44

The house is impressive, set in an incredibly tranquil position between the charming towns of Bellac and Le Dorat, with superb views over the unspoilt countryside. It has a feeling of grace; has light and airy rooms; and could serve equally well as the welcoming family home that it currently is, or as a Chambre d'Hote.
