Want to explore the property inside out first? Find us on youtube:
'Holiday Villa l'Ancienne Ecole (The Old School) in Troche'.

This comfortable house is a former girl's school of the little village Troche. The house was recently fully renovated. The result is a beautiful mix of modern comfort and authentic elements. The house is surrounded by an enclosed garden on the south with stunning unobstructed views in all directions.

The recent pride of the house is the Living Lounge. Because wheather can change and it is not always sunny in the Corrèze, we decided to convert the attic to a Entertainment Lounge where you can watch movies via Apple TV, or satellite dish or XBOX360 on a large screen. Complete with a great collection of DVD's and games. Heated or cooled via two airco units.

The villa was impressive. More than enough space for all of us and there was a lot to do as well. Our favorite room was the downstairs living, with open kitchen and fireplace. We've spent a good while in there;) Also the surroundings are great...More

The Ancienne Ecole is well placed for the beach near Vigeois, Pompadour and other lovely places. The pool was a great facility, especially with the weather being so hot. The games room was well used, though the youngsters would have brought their own playstation games...More

About the neighbourhood
You find no mass recreation in the area, although Pompadour (7 km) is known for its horses, the annual competition hippique, splendid stables and its Club-Med facilities (at 3 km , with a large 15 x 7 indoor pool, tennis courts, competition hippique).

At the other side, approximately nine kilometres further, lies Vigeois (where you drive through when you depart the A20) and there you can canoe in the small savage mountain river or you can picnic and paddle at the small beach near the river in the valley.

Near that same village Vigeois (10 minutes drive) is a wonderful lake with an elongated sand beach: The Lac the Poncheral. A perfect spot to spend the day with playing children.

You can also visit castles, lakes, caves, several medieval towns or the special zoo in Limoges here in...

The Ancienne Ecole is located in the middle of Troche. That is a very small village. On the highest point of this village you can see your holiday residence. You can see the house already from on the hill when you approach Troche by car.
