About Louise Kennedy
We are Roy and Louise and Paradise is our escape from the stresses of our working live as Technical service providers to the conference industry. As we work all over Europe its useful to have our main base in France to use during the busier times of the conference season, and also to relax in when we get a rare few weeks off. As we spend so much of our working life travelling and living in hotels we wanted to create a place that we were able to unwind in without the need for us to go away on holiday, as for us, getting time at home is the best holiday ever !
Louise Kennedy purchased this farmhouse in 2001
Why Louise Kennedy chose Balledent
At the time I was living in Cheshire and running a business meant that I could work from anywhere as long as I had a good internet connection. When looking at the options I wanted to make sure we could drive to the house in a day as I knew this would make it much more useable for us and local friends, so drew a line on a map of France which was within a days drive and another line where the better weather started, and found a region called the Limousin which at the time I hadnt heard of. Having made a few viewing appointments with a local estate agent (there was nothing on the internet at this time !) we headed out to see if we liked the area, and we knew immediately that we were so lucky to find a house with such wonderful views yet not isolated so bought it there and then!
What makes this farmhouse unique
Every time I arrive - at whatever time of day or night - its so nice to walk through the door and knowing we have some time here - even if its only a few days before we are off working again. The quiet lanes are perfect for a walk, and offer wonderful views at every turn. The 30 minute loop around to the next village and back is something I enjoy every day I can. Being part of a small commune is lovely as I spend a lot of time there on my own so having friendly neighbours is a huge benefit for me. However as we are the first house in the village, most of the windows just look out over the distant hills, so we have the best of both worlds.
