About Brian Wells
Jill & Brian have renovated the house with local artisans over a number of years, the 200 year old (+) town house has both front and side access. It has been used over this period for Jill to design course material using local subject matter and collect photographic material for her Art School curriculum. Brian spends a lot of time supporting Jill ,and helping charities. Both love the town and surrounding villages and have many local French friends.
Brian Wells purchased this House in 1999
Why Brian Wells chose Brantome-en-Perigord
This property was initially a small end terrace town house with one bedroom built around 1799 -1800, and now provides flexible accommodation. It has been delightfully renovated and developed using modern techniques, including two rooms that are actually under the rock. Typically French exterior and deceptively spacious accommodation provides you with a nice retreat when hot, and a warm retreat in the winter months. We wanted a house which gave us some space and not crowded beds in the bedroom just to get more people in. So we have fair sized bedrooms with a massive master bedroom . The 2nd bedroom is great for light sleepers. For us the location was also close to town but not amongst the hubbub of town life even if along a town access road. We therefore gained the best of all worlds as it has a waterside garden with gated access direct to the river opposite the house. If using canoes these can be moored safely by the garden or there are two other river public access sets of steps a few metres either side of our garden. We love sitting in the garden enjoying views across, up and down the river plus of course the relaxing view across the park. The shadows change constantly throughout the day and season and on a quiet day the observant will see the Kingfishers flying past. The river is well stocked with fish and for those who enjoy fishing and a day , week or longer , fishing license is locally available. For us, French life is about joining in with the local events within the community and we are fortunate to have many good French friends. This house offers an ideal base for visiting local surrounding areas, and we have personally found few other places in France that offer so many beautiful options within easy striking distance. Like most places in France you do need a car but cycling there is fun too. Brantome sits nicely in the triangle between Limoges, Bergerac and Bordeaux airports, so lots of choice of flying options or if family are joining you
What makes this House unique
With sheltered warmth in the small private garden, the lower parts of this house offer a welcome change from mid summer heat (which can get very hot), whilst the balcony and floors 1 and 2 give stunning views with double aspect windows to the Abbey, river and parkland. The mornings and evenings are adorable from either sitting on the balcony or having a meal in the garden as are the morning trips to the bakers for fresh bread and treats! It's funny how we never seem to get home without eating something en route and there's always a volunteer to go to the bakers! Depending on the size of your party you can eat in the kitchen diner or the ground floor lounge has a lovely oak table and chairs. The table extends as required to a maximum of 10. We tend to eat most of the time in the open garden, to over look the park and river whilst eating an. Plus we love looking at the wildlife who love a crumb or two. There are books, games, hi speed Wifi (10Mb) , wifi games, 2 independent (UK Freesat) TV's, boules for local use to keep you occupied when not touring, using the local amenities or dining out. The photos show local and surrounding places to visit. In cooler periods the house has a SMART thermostatic controlled , gas combi boiler central heating system which will automatically commence the thermostatic radiators and all your hot water is on demand. Location wise you have Limoges, Bergerac, Bordeaux, Brive, Angouleme airports to take your pick from. Two main train line stations at Angouleme and Perigueux provide good access to the network with daily bus routes linking them which route via Brantome. There is a good road network to allow easy touring. We have partnered with a cycle company who will deliver extra hired cycles to the house for the serious bikers , see our own website for more details post reserving this property.
