about the property

Family friendly barn conversion in Limousin, France.

La Chaume is a unique holiday home in the heart of the French countryside. The converted barn is in a peaceful setting in the Limousin, positioned between Poitiers and Limoges. With two bedrooms, and sleeping four, Sparkleseed is perfect for couples or small families: it offers a chance for a real break from hectic lives at home. If peace & quiet, relaxation and a chance to unwind is what you look for in a holiday, and to be surrounded by natural beauty, La Chaume has the lot. It’s just off the beaten track in a small hamlet of approx a dozen houses, surrounded by farms, fields, rivers, lakes, woods and forests.

La Chaume is rural and secluded but also a great base from which to explore the beautiful French surroundings. There are plenty of opportunities for the energetic, including cycling, walking, canoeing & kayaking at nearby towns of Le Dorat, Bellac, Montmorillon & L’Isle Jourdain. Near the house, a short walk takes you down to the river.
