A unique opportunity to own a share of a spacious 8 bedroom house currently used as a guest house. The house was previously used as a girls' catholic boarding school. The house is situated in the centre of the small town of Vallière and the large walled garden provides great privacy.
The small town of Vallière is situated in the Creuse in the middle of France between Limoges and Clermont-Ferrand. Quietly situated, it has all basic services: a baker, butcher, greengrocer, small supermarket, post office, pharmacy, petrol station, tennis court and a GP within walking distance. A restaurant and pizzeria will be opening soon. Larger supermarkets can be found in Aubusson.
The town is 15km from the Tapestry town of Aubusson and also 15 minutes from Felletin where there is a popular local weekly market. The landscape of the area is varied – well wooded, meadows with beautiful brown Limousine cattle, lakes such as Lac de Vassiviere, magical streams, welcoming villages and beautiful views. The area is ideal for walkers and cyclists and still offers unspoilt natural beauty.
The historic city of Limoges is a 70 minute drive to the west of Vallière.
The interior of the house has been adapted for the needs and comforts of contemporary living but the original features such as the beautiful central oak staircase and the stained glass windows in the library have been preserved.
The house is large and has 5 spacious guestrooms on the first and second floor, 2 private apartments, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor and in total there are 7 modern bathrooms with showers and toilets.
There also are several ‘spare’ rooms on the first and second floors and an office space, dining room and chef’s kitchen on the ground floor.
The house has a large cellar area for wine storage, a laundry room, a workshop and a games/recreation room.
