Where is it?
The house is at the end of a little hamlet (5 houses are inhabited), mainly woods around us, and some fields. The area is very hilly and quiet, filled with deers and oals (chouettes). We are 15 minutes to all shops, and little towns, a big town, Limoges, is one hour drive. This place is nice for people wanting to be in the quiet, in the middle of the nature.
This area is known as the 'deep deep France', the population density is around 20/km2 (one of the lowest in Europe), there is no industry whatsoever in the whole department, mainly woodland and old towns. The area used to be much more important in medieval times: Aubusson was providing tapistry, and Limoges porcelaine in the whole of Europe. So there lots of medieval towns around.
There is also a lot of water around, rivers and lakes for those liking to fish or to swim in the winter.
We are one and a half our drive from Clermont Ferrand, and 3 hours drive from PAris or Lyon, also around 4 hours drive from Toulouse or Bordeaux (really the middle of France)
We are at 600m altitude.
