  • Description


    My husband and I have a small holding in France, we moved here from the UK nearly 8 years ago. We have 6 hectares of land and keep a small flock of sheep, currently 45. Plus we have a couple of chickens, ducks and our three doggies. The farm is about 2 kilometres from the nearest village, it is very peaceful here. There is a tabac, restaurant, Boulangerie, pharmacy and post office. Bikes available to cycle to the village. 40 minute drive will get you to the lovely towns of Limoges to the North or Brive to the South. A great area for walking, cycling and canoeing. If you don't have a car we are happy to take you out occasionally. Smokers are welcome but you will have to smoke outside.
