Well maintained and equipped Maison. Comfortable beds, nice outside seating area, well kept garden, good parking. Very good communication with the owner, Marie. Wifi a boon, British TV channels. Good base for visiting local towns such as Segur le Chateau, Pompadour, good local supermarkets in St Yrieux. Highlight was Farmers market in Segur, 5-8pm. Ideal for those who like to get out and explore the environs.
