This house for sale is situated in Dol in the Chambon Sur Vouize commune in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of central France. The current owner has owned the property for ten years and it is unfurnished and needs renovation work. This would suit someone looking to invest in the region and make a good profit in a renovation project or it would suit someone looking to build and live in the area. The setting is stunning in the countryside of central France and the views breath-taking.
If you really want to get off the beaten track in France, head for the rural and little-populated region of Limousin, suggests Dominc Bliss. Discover medieval hilltop villages, imposing châteaux and swathes of stunning scenery. There aren’t large cities here, and that’s part of the region’s charm. Limoges, west of the region’s central point, is the biggest with 140,000 inhabitants, while in the north there’s Guéret, and in the south Tulle – global capital of accordions! – and Brive-la-Gaillarde, with its golden sandstone central village. Thanks to its university, Limoges is the only place in the entire region where you’ll find anything approaching nightlife. Elsewhere it’s distinctly sleepy, to say the least, even during the summer months. Many of the larger towns have attractive street markets where you can indulge yourself in the amazing local farm produce. But elsewhere you’ll feel isolated. In some areas, if you stick to the back roads, you’ll struggle to spot more than a handful of passing cars all day. This is real rural France at its most glorious.
