Farmhouse, Grand Drablet, near Fresselines, 23450, Creuse, Limousin, France - Quiet Idyllic Setting With Private Pool
About Steve Hickman
We love France and the French countryside and with a young family find our house in France ideal - as a retreat during the summer or indeed winter. It is set in rural surrounds and has lovely and safe walking and bicycling. The pool is a bonus and during the last 8 years that we have had this property have thoroughly enjoyed it with our family.
Steve Hickman purchased this Farmhouse in 2010

The house was lovely, spacious and homely. It was clean and had everything we needed. We loved the tranquil location and watching the sun set over the pool. There was still plenty to do in the locality, swimming lakes, rivers, chateau. The children enjoyed the outside space. Would recommended.
