In the town of Loddes, Sunny longère with terrace and outbuildings on a property of approximately 5,000 m2 with a natural pond, and several trees. The property is very secluded, in the middle of a large private forest, accessible only through a barrier and an unpaved forest path of 1 km. No immediate neighbors or passers-by, far from the road, an oasis of peace and quiet, disturbed only by bird calls, frog croaking from the pond and the call of owls in the forest. All this very rural setting in a rolling, volcanic landscape, part of the Massif Central. There are many hiking and biking opportunities. Groceries and markets in Le Donjon (8 km), Lapalisse (10 km) or Vichy and Roanne (about 40 km). There are also many smaller, old towns such as Ambierle, Billy, St. Haon and Le Crozet.


The longère is an elongated building, one half of which has been converted into a house and the other half is a large high barn (grange/hangar). First floor: kitchen, pantry , WC, large lounge. First floor: landing with space for a double bed, storage room, 2nd WC, bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which is very large.

The indoor accessible barn serves as workshop, storage and garaging for a.o. the trailer, garden machinery and all kinds of (garden) tools. But you could also create a very large loft-like living room, or even a studio apartment.


Outside there is a terrace over the entire width of the house, directly accessible from the kitchen and the lounge. It is very sunny but shady thanks to an electrically operated awning and a pergola with grapes, honeysuckle and wisteria. The entire front of the building including terraces faces south with plenty of sunshine from sunrise to sunset.The land covers approximately 5,000 m2. It is gently sloping down to a natural pond of approximately 200m2. There is also an old farmhouse, now used as storage, but also suitable for a second (guest) house or gîte to create. Furthermore, there are five old stables, possibly to renovate for a carport and work and storage spaces.In the garden there are several old (fruit) trees and flowering shrubs and plants, always ecologically maintained without fertilizers and pesticides. Furthermore, many wild flowers and the borders are full of flowers, plants and herbs. There is an authentic - not operational - well, a long pergola (8m) with a.o. climbing roses and grapes and a large wood shed. On one side the property borders a pastoral looking meadow, bordered by trees, where white Charolais cows graze and deer often visit.
