Feel like relaxing in rural France
Dream of relaxing in the french countryside, then this is the house swap for you.
Come and enjoy the calm, relaxed way of life in La Creuse.
Our home was originally built in 1906. We added onto it in 2017 and have done alot of work to it both inside and out. There is also a huge unrenovated barn which we use as a wood barn, work barn and storage barn.
The first floor consists of 2 bedrooms. One bedroom has a four poster queen size bed (160 × 200) bedside cupboards, lamps and a table for luggage.
The other bedroom has a double bed (150 x 190)and built in wardrobes, bedside tables and lamps. So a swap with a couple or perhaps 2 couples is preferred.
On this floor is also a large bathroom with a shower over bath arrangement, toilet, hand basin and heated towel rail.
There is also a large office with 2 desks and a bookshelf and large cube unit with board games, CDs and DVDs.
We have a large linen room with extra blankets, doonas, pillows, towels, ironing board, etc.
On the ground floor, a kitchen with everything you need (except for a coffee machine as we like to go out for our cappuccino fix), lounge room with TV including Netflix and maybe Prime and dining room with large doors opening to the front of the house. The house faces south so receives the beautiful french sun.
There is a slow combustion heater in the lounge room. We will provide plenty of wood and kindling.
We have built an extension to the rear of the house with an anteroom which has a pantry and wine rack and craft area. As well as a fully equipped laundry including double trough, washing machine, dryer, couple of clothes airers and an extra fridge/freezer and another bathroom with shower, toilet and hand basin.
There is electric heating and fuel heaters throughout the house. Overhead fans are located in the kitchen, office and one of the bedrooms with extra pedestal fans if needed.
We have a beautiful terrace at the back of the house which has a shade, barbeque, tables and chairs.
You will require a car as there is no public transport - we would consider a car exchange depending on circumstances. Nearest amenities are 10kms away. Note - you will need an Emission sticker for your car if travelling into certain cities in France. You can purchase this online.
Also note- we do have an attic bedroom on the second floor (our bedroom ) that has a king size bed, bathroom including shower and bath and toilet, walk in robe, shelves, portable air conditioner which can be discussed if more room is required.
We also have an inflatable spa which is set up during the summer months.

We are situated in a rural part of France where there are wonderful areas for walking (randonées/hiking). Many lakes and picnic areas. Lots of little villages to explore and not too far from the Central Massif where there's skiing at Le Mont Dore (about 1 and a half hours drive). Great area for eBiking.
The nearest amenities are 10 kms & 14kms away so you will need transport. You will find a supermarket, 2 boulangeries, 2 cafes and 3 restaurants, plus 2 pharmacies, doctors, postoffice, banks and tourist office in Gouzon. A larger village 14 kms (Boussac) has more restaurants, fantastic markets as well as the usual banks, post office, hairdressers, pharmacies, large health centre. Markets in Boussac are on a Thursday and definitely worth a visit. Gouzon markets are on Tuesdays and are much smaller.
There are many larger towns within or just over an hours drive such as Limoges (Porcelain capital), Montlucon, Gueret, Chateauroux (train station connection), Aubusson (tapestry capital). There are great market towns as well such as Felletin (Fridays), Argenton sur Creuse( Saturdays) Gargalisse (beau village), St Severe, Chambon sur Vouieze La Chatre plus many more.
The church at Moutier d'ahun is a must to see as very unique.
Being in central France is handy also as you can be in many different countries in less than half days drive.
Our neighbours are all french and are just lovely and welcoming.
We have some wonderful English families in the next village over.
We have cows being herded past our kitchen window occassionally.
We had snow in our village on Christmas Day 2020 which was magical.
