I recently moved from the UK to Poitiers-Charente in France. My cottage is in a little village near Ruffec. It's 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 two young brother dogs.
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.
My main project is a mini campsite just down the road from me - maximum 4 pitches. I need to create a COMPOST TOILET and a SOLAR SHOWER - hoping you will have some experience or be confident we can do this ! I have some friends around to help clear the land.if this project isn’t ready then just general light DIY in house and garden would be great.
English, French, some Italian
Large attractive suite with private access and own bathroom. There are 3 single beds there - one can double as a sofa. Outdoor covered seating area and a sunny patio. Also a secluded garden. Call me for a chat. Try the French number first unless you also have a foreign phone - then choose. I have bicycles and am happy to take you places or drop you for train/plane or a day out nearby.
You can cycle to the local bakery, shop in nearby towns, sit and have coffees in sunny cafes, take a train to explore further afield. Check out amazing chateaux and churches. got to fetes, concerts, and walk in the woods !
