  • Description


    I have just moved from the UK to Poitiers-Charente in France. My cottage is in a little village near Ruffec. Its in the countryside but has so much around it within easy reach. The house is in good overall condition, just needs some tweaks of generally small DIY. I have a funny very confident cat and a foster less confident dog.

    This is a beautiful area. Lots of history and fascinating places to visit all around. Stunning churches and chateaux dotted about. Excellent cycling. Rail links to the whole of France. Poitiers within a 40 minute drive. Angouleme also.
    Cultural activities abound - food markets, broccantes, concerts, festivals.. There are Medieval and Roman sites nearby. You can attend history talks and local rambles. Limoges and Bordeaux are within an hour.

    The house was only used as a holiday home before so its a little roughly finished, some of the electrics are poorly installed, and the plaster walls need a neater edge. If you have any knowledge of rural French wooden structure tiled roofs it would be great to have a look and let me know so can troubleshoot. There's a plaster wall that needs a door in it as there is a great storage space behind - current door is placed behind a toilet!
