Great potential for Bed and Breakfast, gites or longterm rentals: an extremely rare find within a short walk to the town centre of Ruffec, but in a haven of tranquillity. Set on over 2 acres of landscaped, walled gardens with private plunge pool and outbuildings. This magnificent property offers 5 independent cottages (each with their own water/electric meters) and the potential to create 2 more cottages and a stunning barn to convert. The finished properties have been very well renovated and offer all modern comforts.
Huge potential for income either on a long term basis or as weekly holiday lets with the option of using one as your main residence. The 2 other properties could create more income and a gorgeous barn (already with new roof, flooring and exposed stone walls) would make a stunning conversion.
Spoilt by the surprisingly peacefulness so close to the town centre and within private gardens of 9375m2 there is the sense of being at one with nature. A wooded parkland, old lavoir (former wash-house) and a trout stream running through the garden make this an extremely rare find.

The department of Charente is located in the centre-west of France and is part of the Poitou-Charentes region along with Deux Sèvres, Charente Maritime and the Vienne department.
Its name as is often the case comes from the river Charente which snakes through the department. Two local dialects are spoken in the area, Saintongeais in the west and Occitan to the east.
Charente is a thriving department for several reasons, Cognac production is one of the most interesting and profitable industries, the export level of approx. 95% is a success, the consumption in France being only 5% (some say they keep the best 5% in France!).
The department has many typical towns, Angouleme in the south east for example hosts an international festival that attracts hundreds of visitors and is not to be missed.
The region is popular with hikers, bikers and nature lovers who like to discover the woodlands, lakes and streams that are part of this amazing landscape.
