Are you looking for an idyllic lakeside house in one of the most stunning parts of France? If so, our French Property of the Week could be for you.
Where is it?
This exceptional four acre property can be found in the department of Dordogne in the south west Nouvelle Aquitaine region.
The house is situated in the picturesque village of Mialet in the Parc Naturel Regional Perigourd Limousin, an area of stunning natural beauty. 
While the property itself is fairly isolated, the nearest international airport in Limoges is just 40km away, with daily flights to and from the UK and regular flights to other international destinations. 
Also in the surrounding area are Angouleme Airport (56 km), Bergerac Airport (86 km) and Poitiers Airport (124 km).

How much does it cost?
It's on the market for €344,500 to €325,000 depending on exchange rates.
Describe the house
This five-bedroom house is spacious and designed to make the most of its natural surroundings. While it's a comfortable place to live, it's the land and lake that sets it apart. 
The lake at just over 1.5 acres is spring fed and a couple of meters deep. The surrounding land is predominantly wooded with a mixture of deciduous and evergreen trees. 
Built on three levels, the main living areas include a large living/dining room with exposed stone walls and beams, as well as a generously sized kitchen. 
Running the full length of one side of the house is a conservatory with a wood burner so it can be enjoyed throughout the year. 
The house has oil fired central heating and solar panels for heating water on the roof.
Why buy it?
Leggett Immobilier say: "The position of this property takes some beating. In a quiet spot at the end of a lane in the North Dordogne, this five bed house overlooks an idyllic lake setting.
"The house is spacious and designed to make the most of the natural surroundings. This beautiful natural setting will change daily as the seasons pass."
