A renovated farmhouse in Limoges City

My name is Gerard, I am 67 years old and I'm retired professor of physical education at the university of Limoges. My wife, Evelyne, is liberal nurse, also retired, and also 67 years We are non-smokers.
We made 10 exchanges, USA, Costa Rica, Finland, Canada, Sweden, Australia, New Zeland ...., and each time it has been a great pleasure. We are convinced followers of the formula.
Our house is located in Limoges (200 000 inhabitants). It is an old farm that we restored. It is located 3 kilometers from the town hall, in a quiet and peaceful area, but equipped with all the necessary shops nearby.
The house has 2 levels. On the ground floor there is the kitchen, fully equipped, living room with large flat screen TV, DVD, CD, computer and Wifi, etc ..., a shower, a toilet, a laundry room. At first floor, there are 3 bedrooms and an office. One bedroom has a double bed 140, the second 160-bed, and the main room has a bed of 1.80m * 2m. Also a bath room and a toilet.

Front of the house there is a courtyard of about 1000 m², where you can park, and a fountain of fresh water.

The garden is behind the house. There are many fruit trees (cherry, plum, apple, pear, apricot, kiwi ...) We have 2 garden tables.

        Limoges has several pools. The largest, at 2 km, is a 50-meters olympic pool with  a large fun pool of hot water, with waves, jets, and swirls. There are also lakes 20, 30, and 40 km, with swimming, sailing dinghies and sailboards. The city of Limoges also has an 18 hole golf course, tennis, jogging circuits constructed in the forest ...

        The city has an historic center of the Middle Ages. Many folk festivals take place in July and August around Limoges.

        The area is heavily wooded and very hilly with many small farms that practice especially livestock. You can enjoy walking, cycling, canoeing. There are many lakes and ponds that hold landscaped swimming or sailing. In principle, the summer is quite warm (25-32 ° C).
