Hello, this is my first post on the forum. My wife and I will be moving to France permanently in January of 2016. I have just returned from a house buying trip that at least showed us where we did not want to live, as remote can really mean remote. Unfortunately, we are ploughing the same old furrow. House with gite, family and friends and somewhere to wind down, but knowing the South East regions as we do, there are too few reasons not to do it.
We are looking in quite a large geographical area South of Limoges towards the Dordogne. The area is roughly from Le Buisson de Dordogne (where I lost the key to my hire car), and north as far as Brantome , then East as far as Argentat (roughly 2 hours away). During our first visit we stayed with an English couple who live in the Correze very close to Arnac-Pompadour. We were out all day but on a couple of evenings we met, had a drink and exchanged information, it was a huge help and very encouraging for my wife and I.
On my next trip,11th to 15th October I am going to be on my own but once again will be looking for somewhere to stay for 4 nights. I am quite happy to pay, buy dinner, wine, beer or what ever...I will be out for most of the day but it would once again be very helpful to meet a family or couple who may be living in a similar geographical area to ourselves.
The rough geographical area that I would like to stay is bordered to the North by the A89 and to the east by the A20. If anyone on the forum has a room to rent or suitable accommodation on whatever terms suit them best, then could they please let me know? I am flexible and the area that I have indicated as a base probably won’t be more than an hour away from any of the regions that I am planning to visit.
I will respond to everyone or anyone who may possibly be able to make an offer (if any).
