Happy Thursday! An elegant manor house to renovate completely in the heart of wine country. It comes with a large courtyard and a spacious, double-height barn. It would require a lot of work to restore, but the bones are beautiful! I can imagine hosting events here, with lots of wine and delicious food. The garden full of lights, a table laid al fresco?
The village of Courbillac is located conveniently to the picturesque town of Jarnac, city of Angoulême, and the TGV to Paris.
