# This beautiful village house dates from the 18th century, it has been tastefully renovated whilst maintaining most of the original character. On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance / dining area, a cosy lounge with log burner, kitchen and utility room. The stunning original oak staircase leads to the first floor with two large bedrooms, a bathroom and a mezzanine landing. A second staircase leads to the top floor which has two further spacious bedrooms, one which has a WC. Then there is another room which could be refurbished to make a fifth bedroom. From here, there are views from the front windows towards the village chateau. Outside, the rear garden has been wonderfully established by the current owner, it is mostly laid to lawn with a covered terrace. A driveway runs down the side of the property. There is ample space to install an above ground pool if desired. This house has lots of potential, it could be a comfortable permanent home, a Chambre d'Hote or a 'lock up and leave' holiday home. It is located around in a historic village with restaurants, boulangerie, shop and post office, and one hour from Limoges airport, 13km from the popular tourist town of Brantome.

Many overseas buyers in France do not realise they can lose thousands of pounds through adverse currency exchange rate movements.

The exchange rate on the day you make an offer on your property in France will not be the same as the rate you pay when you complete on your purchase, as currency markets move constantly. Any large rate movements may take it beyond your price range as the chart above illustrates the fluctuation and how much extra your property could have cost you.
The best way to avoid this significant risk is to plan your budget and currency strategy with an experienced currency specialist. They have been known to save you up to 4% compared to many high street banks, £4,000 for every £100,000, which soon adds up. They will also keep you up to date on market movements, help you set a rate in advance with a product called a Forward Contract - so you know exactly what you will pay for your property in sterling.
This is why we recommend Smart Currency Exchange Ltd. If exchange rate movements continue to be as unpredictable and as significant as they have been in the past then by not using Smart Currency Exchange Ltd your property could cost you £10,486 more.
And then you have the additional saving from their better than bank rates - 1% on the minimum property cost above is a saving of £1,178.
