At the highest point in Troche (Limousin, next to the Dordogne), this renovated school of 300 m2: the Ancienne Ecole. With a super garden with privacy and views in all directions. 4 bedrooms, a private home Cinema attic

The space
Ancienne Ecole in the Corrèze
This property is a former school and is located at the highest point in the village of Troche, which is located in the hilly landscape of the Corrèze department and is adjacent to the Dordogne.

Large 1000m2 private garden
The house has a large private garden (1000 m2) full of mature trees, shrubs and box hedges and a lawn to enjoy the glorious sunshine. The old barn has been converted in to a covered area and has plenty of shade during the day and during the evening is the ideal place to enjoy the peace and quiet. Garden furniture (sitting and reclining) is provided for 8 people. There is an above ground swimming pool for a refreshing swim.

All mod cons
The huge 80 m2 living room is divided into a sitting, dining and kitchen area. With high ceilings the room is very light and airy, it has under-floor heating, a wood-burning stove and ambient lighting. Perfect sound and images: a 48 '' curved HD flat screen satellite TV with all UK channels, audio system, Apple TV to stream your audio or movies, Wi-Fi internet. There is a large wooden dining table to enjoy meals with family and friends.

Luxury Entertainment Space
For the summer of 2012, the attic was converted into a spacious and luxurious 'Entertainment Room'. To offer even more comfort to our guests we have created an ideal place to watch films, listen to music or play a game of table tennis........or perhaps to just get away from it all. Or on the other hand.....................send your children to this amazing space, and enjoy 'grown up' time in downstairs !

The latest technology
The entertainment room (100 m2) is completely darkened in an instant. On a big screen a powerful overhead HD Projector displays films (from Apple TV or Netflix), HD satellite TV (incl. Film1- & family subscription). Powerful surround system makes you believe that you're in a real cinema. Hard disk with more than 100 current movies in popular genres. There is table tennis, and two heavy air conditioning units for creating an ambient temperature. The downstairs living room and the entertainment room both have AirPort Express to stream to your laptop (e.g. iTunes). Satellite TV with several channels, including Film1- and family plan Denon powerful 5.1 surround system.

Sleeping in the style of yesteryear
On the first floor is the characteristic atmosphere of the past preserved as much as possible and even accentuated. The four bedrooms are each equipped with very comfortable box spring mattresses. The rooms have high windows with views over the garden to the south and the picturesque village Troche. On arrival the beds are already made up............... Your vacation can begin immediately!

Bathrooms
The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom area with toilet, washbasin and a large bath. All bedrooms have large chests of drawers and good hanging space for clothes, and two bedrooms have a washbasin in each. The family bathroom off the first floor hallway has a large double shower, washbasin and toilet. It has a heated towel rail. There is a toilet off the ground floor entry hall and a third toilet at the end of the first floor corridor… Fout in total

Guest access
You'll have access to all parts of the house, which consists of 4 bedrooms (of which 1 with bathroom en suite), a living lounge upstairs and big livingroom (80 m2) downstairs.

Mijn naam is Aernoud Florijn. Ik woon en werk in het prachtige Amsterdam en we trekken er regelmatig op uit om helemaal tot rust te komen in de prachtige natuur van de Franse Corrèze. In 2002 hebben we een een oude school gevonden in de Franse Corrèze en waren op slag verliefd... Deze staat onder andere op AirBnB. Na heel wat kluszomers en bloed, zweet en tranen en de hulp van locale bedrijven is onze droom werkelijkheid geworden. Daarnaast hebben we een prachtig appartement in de Amsterdamse Bos & Lommer. Als we op vakantie gaan verhuren we deze. Dus enkele weken per jaar. Sinds 2019 is er een super mooie condo bij gekomen in Valencia in Venezuela. Stel gerust een vraag als je meer wilt weten. EN My name is Aernoud Florijn. I live and work in beautiful Amsterdam and we regularly go out to completely unwind in the beautiful nature of the French Corrèze. In 2002 we found an old school in the French Corrèze and fell in love right away ... This one is on Airbnb among others. After many handy summers and blood, sweat and tears and the help of local companies, our dream has come true. We also have a beautiful apartment in the Amsterdamse Bos & Lommer. When we go on vacation we rent it out. So a few weeks a year. Since 2019, a super nice condo has been added in Valencia in Venezuela. Feel free to ask a question if you want to know more.
