Farmhouse in Fresselines, Creuse, Limousin, France - Peaceful Edge Of Hamlet Location, Countryside/ Riverside Walks From The House
- english, french
My family and I live in Norfolk UK, but have always loved spending time in France. We decided to purchase a traditional French farmhouse in the beautiful French countryside that we could turn into a cosy place where we could all escape and take time out together! It has been 10 years now and we still adore the utter tranquillity the Creuse region offers and are delighted to be able to share it with others looking for the same escapism!

Alastair purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Alastair chose Fresselines
After falling in love with the raw beauty and rustic charm of the Creuse, we decided to purchase a family holiday home in the wonderful French countryside. After 10 years we still find the tranquillity and peaceful way of life priceless and it gives us a chance to escape the hectic pace of life in the UK.

Perfect family holiday
This is a lovely house with all you need for a very enjoyable family holiday, absolutely perfect for my boys.
The house is in a very peaceful location, but easy to access the lakes and towns for more active days if needed.
The garden is great for exploring and resting; or there's a lovely walk down to the river for more adventuring.
The house itself is beautifully decorated, and has everything you need to help make a happy holiday.
