Our pick of tra­di­tional longère prop­er­ties cur­rently on the mar­ket

Fouqueure Char­ente

1 This stun­ning prop­erty has all the charm an old stone-built house can of­fer but with plenty of space and com­fort. The house is lo­cated in a small ham­let near Fouqueure and is in good con­di­tion through­out, of­fer­ing 165m2 of liv­ing space. It boasts a nice en­trance hall, a kitchen and a liv­ing room with a wood burner, plus four bed­rooms and three shower rooms on the first floor. With the pretty and spa­cious gar­den, com­plete with a bar­be­cue area for al fresco sum­mer din­ing and sev­eral out­build­ings in­clud­ing a barn to the rear of the house, this prop­erty would make a lovely fam­ily home in Char­ente.
