    Description

    Hi, I am Zara with my husband Bruce, both in our early 60's have left England few years ago for more relax way of life, living in an idyllic hamlet within the district of Fromental 82750 in the Limousin. Only 30 minutes drive to Limoges and close to the village of Bessines Sur Gartempe. We are both English speakers, I also speak Farsi, some French.

    We have owned our small row of stone country cottages for 10 years and have completed all of the major building to form a comfortable home with the facilities required for daily 21st century life. We offer a home from home where you will join us for meals. You will have your own studio suitable for one or two people with bathroom and shower.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    An opportunity to immerse yourself into a more relaxed way of life, gain new skills, improve your French, and/or English. I am originally from Persia and are well travelled so you will also have the opportunity to learn about Iranian culture and sample the food.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Like most rural hamlets in France public transport is poor, we 3 miles from Bessines Sur Gartempe and a mile from the local supermarket. The main train station at La Souterraine is a 15 minutes drive or Limoges 30 minutes which has both an airport and train station. Long distance buses are also an option. We will assist whenever practical to help you see the local area, and get you to transport links. There are several towns well worth a visit and even a disco in La Souterraine if that is your thing. Bessines also has a large lake with a swimming beach.
