Overview
Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Blond, Haute-Vienne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
This 19th century village house of character and charm is situated on the church square in the centre of the small and picturesque village of Blond, capital of the Mont de Blond, Haute Vienne, Limousin. Although the property built in the late 1800’s has been altered over the years, it has been carefully restored, wherever possible retaining and exposing the original features in the property. Originally the gîte consisted of a small house of very modest proportions with a small attached barn. At sometime post WW2 the barn became part of the living accommodation, which doubled the total area. It now offers character in the 21st century, with beamed ceilings, some small doorways and original doors, an oak staircase and large granite fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove. Well equipped kitchen, dining room and comfy lounge with TV and... Read more
