This lovely old longère, sitting in just under 3 acres of land, overlooks its own pastureland down to the River Colmont below, a paradise for trout and carp fishing. The valley is the French equivalent of an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest), containing rare plants, fungi and salamanders. It’s peaceful and quiet but not isolated.

The 3-bedroom longère is an older renovation, full of character, and has been adapted for wheelchair access to the ground floor. The kitchen contains a log-burning stove in the original stone fireplace, and provides warm air heating ducts to rooms above. A ground floor bedroom, shower room and WC enable convenient living for the less mobile. Upstairs, there are 2 generous bedrooms  which provide plenty of accommodation. 

Outside there is an old bake house and a large decked area providing wonderful views across the property’s own paddocks to the river below and on across to the rolling hillside beyond. Neither overlooked, nor isolated the property is located near the end of a very quiet no through lane. At the end of this lane are riverside walks and a mill in ruin. In one of the paddocks the remains of a dolmen, a type of neolithic tomb, provide proof that residents have loved this peaceful little valley for many, many years. 

The property is well situated only a couple of kilometres from the local village with its restaurant and baker’s shop and 10km from Gorron which offers all amenities including a supermarket, restaurants, school, doctors, butchers, bakers and more.

Limerick for the day:

It’s hidden away from plain view
It could be the longère for you
Not a neighbour in sight
So you’ll sleep well at night
There’s a field which a stream flows through too.
