Full description:

One of the most beautiful houses in one of France's most beautiful villages - historic restored Logis from the 15th Century.

This impressive property consists of two building joined with an octagonal tower with breathtaking views of the Dronne valley.

Originally built in 1490, and then extended in the 18th century this amazing house oozes character and history.

Now converted into a Chambre D'Hote complex, this home attracts tourists from all over the world.

Set in the heart of Aubeterre - officially one of the most beautiful villages in France (part of 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France' organisation) - this 7 bedroom Logis has only been open a year, yet has a busy reservation schedule.

Aubeterre is popular with newly-weds - the town has fifty bookings for receptions and celebrations to be held in the town this year.

Set against the ground-rock, this property has had extensive renovations over the past five years. The roof is new, as are the electrics and plumbing. The property also benefits from double-glazing and a mixture of oil-fueled and electric central heating.

The rental section has five bedrooms, all refurbished with high quality materials and sympathetic design. One bedroom wall consists of the original bedrock - dating back 63 million years!

The owner's accommodation consists of two further bedrooms and a kitchen, just off the main hallway. A large dining room is currently used as a communal room for guests.

There is scope for further accommodation in the vast attic, and the ground floor areas.

There is planning consent to build a swimming pool in the 400m2 garden - which would truly give this property a boutique hotel feel.

And there is even an adjacent building plot, with planning permission for a 120m2 home or business premises.

This property is only a stone's throw from the thriving village centre, with restaurants, bars and boutiques.

Bergerac airport is an easy 1hour 10 minute drive through the countryside, Bordeaux airport is 1hour 40 minutes' away.

Conveniently situated on the border of the South Charente and the Dordogne, Aubeterre sur Dronne is renowned for its exceptional cultural heritage which, combined with its beautiful surroundings and the famous French "Art de Vivre", makes it the perfect place to live and visit. Officially listed as one of "Les Plus Beaux Villages de France", it has welcomed pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella in Spain, for over 1000 years. Two important historical monuments add to the cultural status of Aubeterre sur Dronne, namely the extraordinary, monolithic, underground Church of St Jean and the Romanesque Church of St Jacques, with its stunning facade. Visitors and tourists can enjoy strolling through the narrow streets, the many specialist shops, and then settling down in the village square, Place Trarieux, at one of the cafes or restaurants, wonderfully shaded by ancient lime trees.

About Allez Francais, Corrèze

Allez-Français was founded in 2001 by Peter Elias, a year after Bridget and Peter completed their own property purchase in France. Having spent a considerable amount of time searching for houses in France, we are all too aware of how time consuming and frustrating the process can be. We know that many agents will meet you at their offices and offer a portfolio of properties for you to browse through, even though you have made appointments to view specific properties a few days earlier. We don't work like that - we promise. (see below).

We would normally expect to spend a whole day with you on viewings, probably visiting 4-5 properties in the day. We prefer to spend 2 days with you if possible, we find that ensures that you will find that dream home. You won't be rushed and we will answer your questions during the time that we spend together. We are committed to dealing in a professional manner with all of our clients both vendors and buyers.

Having worked previously as a highly qualified independent financial adviser, Peter Elias is able to introduce clients to a network of advisers able to place business in all aspects of finance and insurance. Combined with our expertise in the French property market, we can pass on our knowledge to your advantage, making the whole process as hassle-free as possible.

As your purchase progresses, we will, where possible refer you to an English speaking Notaire. We can also introduce you to architects or surveyors, if required, who will be able to advise you upon the condition of your house or perhaps assist with drawings that you may require in connection with proposed improvements.

Please contact us to let us know how we can help you to find your ideal property.
