About Dave Higgs

Dave, Heather and family moved to France in 2009.

We had been holidaying in France for many years and decided that it was time for a permanent change in our life style.

We loved the region for its unspoilt beauty and the friendliness of the inhabitants. They made us feel welcome and were proud of their little part of France. We now want to try to share that with other travellers.

Dave Higgs purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Dave Higgs chose Exideuil

We wanted to be in rural France and within driving distance of the channel ports. The village is equidistant from the major towns of Limoges and Angouleme. These provide links to both airports and motorway networks.

The house is beside the river Vienne and opposite the small village of Exideuil. The village has some shops and is just a few minutes walk away.

The peace and quiet of the location, along with the abundant wild life make it a very relaxing place to spend those lazy afternoons.

What makes this cottage unique

Fantastic riverside views.

Private garden with your own splash pool.

You can walk to the village to collect your daily groceries and bread. Then spend a leisurely breakfast on the balcony or patio.

There is plenty of wildlife to watch, or perhaps those budding artists would like to paint or draw.

There are river activities outside our doorstep and these include canoeing and fishing.

The property is on some of the designated circular walks and cycle tracks in the area and is an ideal base to explore the Charente countryside.
