About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Leigh Smith

We are David and Leigh Smith, with our son Ethan we have run our small family holiday business for the past 3 years. We have met some lovely people and look forward to meeting many more.

Year property purchased 2002
Why this location? We bought these run down farm buildings on a spur of the moment weekend away, we fell in love with the area which has lots to offer. There is something for everyone, those with families although we are mile from the coast we have seven local lakes with man made well maintained beaches that are life guarded in the summer season, those who like historical towns there is Limoges and Perigueux to visit. For cyclists and walkers we have marked trails from our doorstep, and much much more for your to explore.
Unique benefits of property Although we live on-site we are no way intrusive but always happy to help in anyway if needed. Being in 54 acres there is plenty of space for you to relax and unwind and enjoy the rural countryside. Lots of on-site activities to keep everyone busy.

The Owner Recommends


Known as Little Venice, an historic medieval market town where the river Dronne surrounds the town. With its boutiques, restaurants, café and bars where you can relax and watch the activities on the rivers. Every Friday is market day. Canoeing is very popular here, well recommended for a visit.

Bussiere Galant – Tree Park Adventure

The park has 7 courses with increasing difficulty (yellow, green, bleu, orange , red, black and ultra black), including about 70 games (bridges, tarzan ropes, climbing nets, zip wires…), enabling you to climb up to 12m high for the most reckless! The Espace Hermeline also has an activity for younger children, from 4 years old and a meter high, which enables them to discover new sensations on a unique course. For those of you who are nocturnal, we can organize late nights with headlamps. Reservation only. Demanding little or no technique, this activity gives you an original access to the woodland. It enables you to discover the trees and their environment in a new way. It’s the ideal way of bringing together a fun activity and a natural environment. Exclusive in the Limousin! Have a sensational time crossing the lake on a TYROCABLE. Leave from a platform situated 23m above the water and slide down the 400m long cable to reach speeds which can go up to 70km/h. For your comfort and safety, there are gloves and helmets at your disposal.


Dordogne is beautiful, with it’s breathtaking countryside, lakes, rivers and pretty quaint villages. We have prehistoric caves and sights, impressive châteaux, castles and medieval towns. With plenty to keep the whole family occupied and happy.

Limoges Town

Situated on the riverside of the Vienne, with original settlements that date back to Roman times, the city is known for it’s fine porcelain and painted enamelware, cultural activities and botanical gardens. The city has celebrated its 2000th anniversary and is rich in cultural history with many museums, symphonies and theatres. Porcelain and fine china was developed in the 18th century out of enamel work which began in the middle ages. Visit the many shops and tour the working factories.

Local Swimming Lakes

We have 7 lovely, safe, swimming lakes nearby with man made clean beaches and grassed play areas. The lakes have designated swimming areas with separate sectioned off area for non-swimmers and younger children. All these lakes are life guarded in the summer months. All have free parking and toilet facilities, most even have café/restaurants. Some of these lake have diving platforms, canoes, kayaks and pedalo’s and children’s play area’s. It’s just like the day at the beach but nicer.
