ABOUT LA FERME
Step back in time when entering this 17th century farmhouse which retains original features of a bygone era whilst offering the comfort of ‘your own home’!
Inside: La Ferme, oriented east-west, has a large lounge-diner with a wood fire. The kitchen, set down some steps, is full of charm with an original brick built bread oven. Upstairs is a large family bedroom with a 2m x 2m double bed and a single bed. The landing leads to a bathroom/WC.
Outside: The 2 level front terrace is adjacent to a side garden, private to the gîte. Out of sight from the gîte is a shared 8m x 4m salt pool, past which you will arrive at the lake which is private to the complex. Fishing is allowed with the purchase of a licence. Another communal outdoor space is by the chicken coop next to a children’s play area.
L’Age is a hamlet in the area named Le Pays des Feuillardiers (country of the woodcutters). At the turn of the last century there was intensive management of the sweet chestnut copices which are still evident and home to a lot of wildlife. The land is undulating and pretty, dotted with small lakes. There are excellent way-marked paths for walkers. The cities of Limoges, Angoulême and Périgueux are within an hour’s drive.
