About Deborah or Chris Carmody

Deborah and Chris Carmody

We have lived in France for 12 years .Our children were educated , and now work here.

This area has been a great place to live. It's quiet but close to great places to visit.

We have been welcomed by the locals and we enjoy taking part in local events.

The firework display in Chateauneuf la foret on the 14th July( 7km from the house) at the lake is fantastic!!!

Deborah or Chris Carmody purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Deborah or Chris Carmody chose Masléon

There is a bakery and small general store in walking distance to the house and a fantastic Augerge resturant at 500mts.

Safe swimming lakes from 7km from Masleon

Lots of walking and cycling routes very close by.

Limoges is just 30 mins by car. Loads to see and do.

Fishing permits easily bought. Fishing at 15mins to the house

Lovely character house with beautiful sun terrace and log burners

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. Although the 'ancient clogmakers' house it was well equipped with modern facilities and two lovely log burners.

Beds extremely comfortable and our twelve year old loved playing in the garden area while we enjoyed a BBQ on the sun terrace.

Shop and boulangerie within walking distance and supermarket within 10 mins drive.

Perfect peaceful location with easy access and the welcome pack was fabulous.

Heerlijke plek om in vakantie te verblijven

  • 4 of 5

Alles prima, bedden,keuken, tuin, douchen, 2 houtkachels. Kortom goed!

Alleen een punt van kritiek, de banken in de kamer zijn misschien voor jonge mensen te doen, maar wij konden er niet in zitten,. Jammer.
