Beautiful Large Country House with heated pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 11-Jun-2016
Near the river Dordogne, restored 19th-century Farmhouse With Garden, Terrace, Heated Swimming Pool, And Large Barn

Blandine is a small hamlet in the commune of Saint Bonnet Elvert, set in the hills above the picturesque town of Argentat on the river Dordogne. This charming farmhouse has a large garden, heated swimming pool, terrace and barbeque, and stunning views over the beautiful wooded Correze countryside. The interior has retained its period features, but is equipped with every modern convenience. In addition to the house there is a large traditional barn for leisure activities, and the old pigsty has been converted into a small private bar in the style of an English country pub, with its own wc/shower-room and a small bedroom above.

About the Owner

After many years of touring France, we chose to settle in Corrèze. It is one of the most beautiful regions of France, but also far enough south to enjoy a warm climate from spring through to late autumn. The owner, now widowed, has moved to a smaller house nearby, leaving the delightful house at Blandine for others to enjoy.
