    Description

    Hi! I’m Evie G, mum of three and happiest when they’re around me! They’re all grown up now and flown the nest so I’ve filled up my home and time with dogs! I love in South West France in a beautiful rural area, my home is at the edge of a little village with bars, shops and lovely beating heart. We’re 15 mins for the Lakes and the outdoor fun and activities they offer.
    I love to cook, have had restaurants in the past and enjoy making people feel at home in mine!
    The house is big and spacious, 3 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and lovely gardens which need your help.
    Right by the house is an area to play boules, and tennis courts and an outdoor pool are a short stroll away.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area is stunning, lush and green and fields filled with cattle. The village has two bars, tennis courts, an outdoor pool (subject to seasonal opening and Covid) the next town is 12 mins in a car. The lakes are 15 mins in a car. Your own transportation would be advantageous as there is no public transport in the area.
    Most people enjoy the local markets and lively brocantes in the area; the neighbourhood is friendly, we okay cards at the local bar some evenings, however entertaining is often done in each others homes as we cook for friends. For a night out we meet for drinks at the bar by the lakes, watching the sun set. Limoges is 45 mins drive & Angouleme is only 40 Mins away and is a lovely city, strolling the ramparts, dining ans drinking al fresco whilst soaking up the view and atmosphere. The train station here has TGV trains direct to Bordeaux (35mins) Paris (2hours)
