About Elze Horlings
We are 2 Dutch people who love this specific part of France. For this we decided to buy a grange, for ourselves to live in when we are retired and for now to give people the change to see by themselves how beautiful it is overhere.
Elze Horlings purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Elze Horlings chose Champsac
As we said before, the region is beautiful, not as dry as it is more south and it has very once countrysides. People are friendly and very in to help and talk with each other and 'others'. Living here means that there is no hurry, although you have to work. Also a house in this region is mostly built up in the traditional French way: en pierre! We do like this style.
What makes this Cottage unique
What we found here are extreme quiet and dark nights. In this part of France, especially outside the bigger towns, there is no environmental pollution of light. So the night is dark and the only thing you can here are leafs or animals that live up when it is dark. And then there is this house of us, an old grange (build at the end of 1800) which is renewed in some places and kept 'old' where it should be. The old 'en pierre' walls are typical for a French house. Also the kitchen with it's old sink and the wooden ceiling are typical. And where will you find a large garden with swimming pool in such an environment. We love the place, it's people and the fact that we will live here when we have retired. We hope that you will have the same feeling.

Jolie maison au cœur de la verdure
Agreable maison avec piscine au cœur d’une belle région. La voiture reste indispensable pour les ballades et les commerces qui restent cependant proches de la maison. Une belle semaine sous le soleil qui a permis beaucoup de sorties et heureusement car malheureusement la télé ne dispose d’aucune chaînes françaises et un internet avec une réception très faible. A recommander pour des vacances au calme et déconnectée en famille entre baignades et verdure.
Merci pour votre avis.
Cordialement, la famille Horlings
