Grue Demoiselle, built around 1850, is a charming renovated period stone property with a host of original features. It was created as a holiday destination near Bellac, in the Haute-Vienne region of France.

The property has been a therapy, well-being and holiday centre and is set in the tranquil and very beautiful setting of the Forest of Rancon about 5 minutes to the town by car, with small commerce, bakery, pharmacy, café/restaurants. It is a short drive to the wonderful setting of Lake Pardoux with outdoor heated swimming pool and recreational activities and around 30 minutes drive to the International Airport of Limoges.

A separate renovated stone barn/reception centre has hosted Retreats and weddings with potential to cater for up to 60 people. The gîte will sleep up to 15 guests. The owner?s attached property has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
