Maison Petite Creuse is a beautiful, newly-renovated French stone farmhouse located in the heart of the stunning countryside of La Creuse/Limousin. Surrounded by many safe swimming lakes (the closest just 15 minutes drive) many with sandy beaches and watersports and flowing rivers ideal for fishing (Holiday permits available locally) and situated just 15 minutes drive from the historical market town of Dun Le Palestel with all it's conveniences.
