We moved to France in 2007, from the Yorkshire Dales, with our daughter and created our gite complex from scratch! We live on site and renovated an old cottage and converted a barn into 2 more gites - it's very quiet at Tranquille Vienne!
|Year property purchased||2007|
|Why this location?||Warmer climate and an up and coming tourist area which has grown and developed alot since we moved here.|
|Unique benefits of property||We live on site so are at hand to answer any questions you may have. We have 3 gites, so it is perfect for extending families and groups of friends to holiday together. We are in a rural location but not remote for all amenities. We enjoy that we have returning guests year on year and watched many children grow over the years!|
.. Or Monkey World as we call it! A fabulous day out for all the family - around 45 minutes drive from us.
Local French owned bar and restaurant, offering live music nights and French cuisine.
We are only 20 minutes drive from Oradour - a must see to believe what actually happened all those years ago. The village has been left as a historial tourist attraction.
10 minutes drive from us you could be swinging through the trees at the Aventure Parc - another fun activity
Guerlie beach is another 10 minute drive from us. A lovely sandy beach, allocated swimming area in the lake (with life guard during high season). There is also a snack bar, mini golf and watersports. Always a popular one with our guests.
Fascinating to see all the varieties of sealife at the aquarium in Limoges.
Based on the campsite in Exideuil, this is a regular snack bar we visit, with mini golf, volleyball and live music events.
Available to book from the local campsite. You can kayak down the River Vienne from Exideuil to Manot which takes around 2-3 hours.
There are many stunning chateaux closeby - all very different. La Rochefoucauld you can dress up; Rochechouart is now partly an art museum and Etagnac are the closest and most visited in our area.
There is a large outdoor pool in St Junien (20 minutes), a smaller outdoor pool in Confolens (10 minutes) with slides. Nautalis in Angouleme has a large outdoor pool and wave machine along with an olympic sized pool indoors.
We are situated inbetween the 2 cities. Both very different in how they look with some stunning buildings.
Up to 5 people can cycle on one large bike (2 pedalling) on an old train track from Roumazieres to Manot or Manot to Confolens - another popular activity!
An adventure park more popular with the younger children, with rides, slides and a large swimming pool
