If you are searching to escape to a quiet life in the French countryside then this south-facing longère dating from 1801 and surrounded by farmland offers just that opportunity, with the usual amenities required to maintain daily life being within easy reach. Renovated using quality materials, this property with its large lawned garden sits on a VERY quiet country lane and is not overlooked by its one neighbour.

A visit is highly recommended to be able to fully appreciate the peace and quiet of this countryside setting.
