Dominated by the abbey, Bussiere is one of those rare things in the French countryside, it is both a tourist attraction but also a fully functioning village not simply a show village. As is typical in so much of rural France, the local commune take a great pride in their local village and it is always beautifully maintained and it almost feels as if it has been made ready especially for you when you visit ! On top of all this, the village is also on “mains drains” and has mains gas supplied. Apparently simple “luxuries” like these can be very rare in the countryside and have far reaching practical benefits. Usually your beautiful village comes with a price in terms of Spartan services, no shops and no drainage and only bottled gas. Bussiere achieves beauty and functionality as a place to choose to live.Jump to Gallery
