At the center of France, in the middle of a lovely little village somewhere inbetween Limoges and Brive, there’s a restaurant known and loved throughout the region for many years. It is located in a house typical of the region dating from the beginning of the previous century.
And it’s for sale.
After taking the exit off highway 20, you can be there in about twelve minutes. On the winding route through the woods you will pass through a village with amenities such as a bakery, post office, supermarket and a Bar Tabac. You drive on for a few more minutes and you pass a beautiful lake and a small river. The countries hight differences now become a bit bigger as you drive further through the rolling landscape past the worldwide known Limousin cows in green meadows interspersed with extensive forests and the occasional characteristic farm.
Then, pointing to the left, there’s a road sign with the name of your destination on it. In between two houses you drive into a somewhat narrower road and you have to go a bit into the verge for an oncoming vehicle which driver thanks you kindly for your gesture. After a few hundred meters more the road goes up again and after the bend you drive into the village. Turn right again and park in front of your destination.
And you’re not alone: it’s busy for lunch on this sun-filled weekday. After a few other guests have been warmly welcomed by the owner, she turns to you.
