Price €18,000

A large property, formerly a tannery, set on the banks of the River Vincou in Bellac.

Requiring total renovation, the property comprises of a cottage (does not require planning permission) and two large granges with planning permission due to expire September 2019.

This is a real opportunity for someone to build out the cottage to live in while working on the two large granges which would provide a massive home.

The barns

Barn one (approximately 7.5 x 6.5 metres externally) and barn two (approximately 9.7 x 7.7 metres externally) were formerly storage barns for the tannery.

Both granges require COMPLETE RENOVATION. The roof will need replacing and there are no floors inside.


All mains services are available in the road in front of the property.

Broadband available.


The property has two good sized (separate) garden areas both enjoying beautiful views to the green space, the river Vincou, the countryside and the beautiful Eglise Notre Dame church in the distance.


The property is located in the historic district of Bellac.

Bellac is a "village etape" in the beautiful Limousin countryside. Easy access to Limoges airport with year round RyanAir flights to the UK. Lakes close by for sports and many restaurants locally, in fact there's a British pub within 5 mins walk across the Roman bridge. Bellac has two large supermarkets and all other amenities.

Limoges airport is just 35 minutes drive away.


Original sale price of the two granges plus adjacent garden was 13,000 euros and we subsequently purchased the cottage and second garden for 10,000 euros. It was our dream to build this property but after 5 years of renovations on our current home we have had enough! Over to you!

The price is exclusive of agency fees, notaire's fees and government taxes.
