What a peace­ful set­ting for this six-bed­room de­tached home. At the end of a no-through road with en­closed gar­dens and, of course, that river­side lo­ca­tion, the prop­erty has a huge kitchen with pa­tio doors and a large sit­ting room with open fire­place and door to the gar­den and river­side. You don’t just get river views with this prop­erty; there’s a beach and is­land too. A dream fam­ily home or ideal place to pro­vide hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion. The price is €265,000. Ref: 495505 Karen Tait, Editor How I love the un­sung Célé, a tran­quil green river that me­an­ders through lime­stone cliffs be­fore join­ing Lot near St-cirq-lapopie. This adorable three-bed­room house is down­stream of Figeac and up­stream of Brengues, a great place to launch your ca­noe. On a pad­dle you may spot king­fish­ers, red squir­rels and ot­ters. Five min­utes’ drive from a restau­rant, the house is on mains drainage and has a garage and gar­den, all for €194,250. Ref: 459925 Ruth Wood, As­sis­tant Editor No, that in­cred­i­bly low price is not hid­ing a derelict build­ing to ren­o­vate. Yes, this cute cot­tage is ready to live in with three bed­rooms, a shower room and a lovely open-plan kitchen/din­ing room/liv­ing room with wood­burner. Yes, it is flooded with light and full of char­ac­ter. No, it doesn’t have a gar­den but it over­looks the river in the heart of Aubus­son. And yes, I think I’d be very happy liv­ing in it.
