Översikt av fastigheten
|Adress||Rue Du Fort, 87300 Bellac, Frankrike|
|Typ av bostad||Hus|
The house is built on the site of a 10th century chateau belonging to the Counts of March. It commands spectacular views over the Vincou valley.
There is a small walled terrace to the rear, facing south-west, with wonderful views over the Vincou valley and the railway viaduct. Patio set for 7. The furniture is mainly antique, with a mix of contemporary and historical art. It can accommodate 7 people in 4 bedrooms.
There is a lit-clos (enclosed bed) in one of the bedrooms - a unique antique sleeping experience!
Back in England I had been involved in the conservation of old buildings for twenty-five years, working for the Eve Baker Trust and my own company, Nimbus Conservation, which was involved in work on the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, and Wells Cathedral, amongst others. So when I saw this house I regarded it as an extension of my conservation work, but this time working on my own building.
When we bought the house it was in a sorry state, and needed urgent structural repair. We discovered that the walls looking towards the viaduct had dropped by eight to ten centimetres, so we had to do some underpinning. Then there was the repointing - in a lime mortar, leaving as much as possible of the original mortar, which contained crushed brick - similar to the mortar used by the Romans.
The neighbors have a key and can let guests in on request.
On arrival, the key will be found in a safe whose code will be supplied on confirmation of booking. Guests are advised to bring a torch, as the exterior of the back of the house is deliberately not illuminated and guests will need to see the stars.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome
Guests may encounter features in the house that deserve due care and attention, particularly for the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. There are, for example, low beams, some low doorways, steep spiral staircases, uneven floors, and there is a big drop behind the house.
The host cannot be held responsible for any injury.
