About the property

Cottage in Bousseroux, near Chalus, Haute Vienne, Limousin, France, with swimmingpool

Coming down from Chalus, you find our cottage in the hamlet of Bousseroux. In front of and next to the cottage you can park your car (max. 3). Entering the cottage you are in the living room, equipped with sofa's, a satellite TV with DVD and with big walls in typical French style ('en pierre'). Because of these thick walls the cottage stays cool in summer! Via the living room you can enter a sleeping room with a double bed and bathroom with toilet en suite. From the living room you have an open entrance to the kitchen, which is fully equipped (washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine and water kettle. It has a large kitchen table which suits 8 persons easy! Via the kitchen you can go up to the first floor by a winding staircase. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms situated (1 bedroom with double bed, both other bedrooms have 2 beds each). Also you find the second bathroom with bath and toilet. All bedrooms have wardrobes to put your clothes and other things away. Through the kitchen you can enter the garden via the veranda, where you also find a playlet for the children and the swimming pool (8 x 4 m). The swimming pool meets the French regulations and law which means in our case that the swimming pool is fully fenced. The use of the swimming pool is still at own risk. For this it is stated in our rules that no child should be inside the fence without an adult! The swimming pool can be used by the housekeeper(s). For relaxation you find garden furniture and sun beds. The garden itself has a lot of places where you either can enjoy the sun or enjoy the shadow. At the swimming pool you also have parasols. When leaving the cottage you can choose left or right: both roads bring you in the countryside of the Limousin. In a radius of approx. 25km you find caves (caves of Villars), castles dating the Middle Ages in which Richard Lionheart was living (in Chalus, only 5 km away, is the castle in which Richard Lionheart was killed, situated). But also Chateau Brie, and chateau de Montbrun. Most of all these castles and chateaus you can visit. At Limoges, 40km away, you find a nice Zoo and in Limoges you have the porcelain museum. Most of all the city is great to go shopping! Driving in the direction of St. Mathieu, you find a swimming lake which includes a supervisor during the summer period. But, see for your self and, also very important, every village has at least one nice and fine restaurant or cafe.

About Elze Horlings

We are 2 Dutch people who love this specific part of France. For this we decided to buy a grange, for ourselves to live in when we are retired and for now to give people the change to see by themselves how beautiful it is overhere.

Elze Horlings purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Elze Horlings chose Champsac

As we said before, the region is beautiful, not as dry as it is more south and it has very once countrysides. People are friendly and very in to help and talk with each other and 'others'. Living here means that there is no hurry, although you have to work. Also a house in this region is mostly built up in the traditional French way: en pierre! We do like this style.

What makes this cottage unique

What we found here are extreme quiet and dark nights. In this part of France, especially outside the bigger towns, there is no environmental pollution of light. So the night is dark and the only thing you can here are leafs or animals that live up when it is dark. And then there is this house of us, an old grange (build at the end of 1800) which is renewed in some places and kept 'old' where it should be. The old 'en pierre' walls are typical for a French house. Also the kitchen with it's old sink and the wooden ceiling are typical. And where will you find a large garden with swimming pool in such an environment. We love the place, it's people and the fact that we will live here when we have retired. We hope that you will have the same feeling.
