A large, luxurious house and its outbuildings on 75 continuo

This easy-to-access property is but some 10 minutes from the N10 linking Bordeaux, Angoulême and Poitiers, putting it a 4½-hour drive from Paris. Angoulême TGV train station, 20 minutes away, provides 2-hour links to the French capital. The countryside in the area around Angoulême is composed of grasslands, fields and numerous copses. It features a wealth of hamlets and villages, with all shops, as well as old churches dating back to the 12th century.
