La Terrasse and Gardens:

There are so many ways to enjoy this property. Sleep on the terrace and wake renewed to fresh croissants and hot coffee to be sipped alongside the flowing 'Gartempe River'. Get ready to enjoy lunch by wandering to the local market less that two minute’s stroll away, where your only problem will be trying not to buy too much. Your selection could include homemade goat cheese and jams, organic vegetables, fresh chickens, sublime sausages, crunchy bread, mouth watering mussels, only imagine it and it is there, only fresher!! Round it off with a good bottle of wine and get ready for your afternoon nap.

I am afraid I live too far to be there for you but have plenty of resources should you need them.
So many things to do in Montmorillion! There are loads of walking/hiking paths laid on and they are easy to find as they are well mapped and signposted. There are plenty of small boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and lovely food shops. It makes a stroll a delight.
The house is all yours , so I would hope that you would treat it as you would your own home
