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.
