The Owner Recommends


During the summer most local villages have a celebration of their village, these usually always include a fair and spectacular firework displays.

Lac de Pontcharal

If you tire of the pool and want a relaxing day out Lac de Pontcharal is only a short drive. A swimming lake in a tranquil location with a sandy beach & plenty of shaded picnic areas its ideal to spend the day. Onsite is a small snack bar, shop & amenities. Pedalos are available to hire and you can dive from the two diving boards.


This is a busy town in the heart of the Correze. It boasts a grand Chateau which was given to Jeanne Le Normant d'Etiolles the mistress of Louis XV. Its gardens, La Marquise and Orangerie stables are open to the public. Pompadour is also renowned for its equestrian heritage, the centre of Anglo-Arab breeding, housing a Stud farm and Mare farm, both of which are open to the public, it is home to a Horse Institute since 1976. During the year Place de Pompadour is a busy hive of activity with markets, fetes and numerous Equestrian events including some prestigious horse racing, which takes place from late June to early September every Sunday.

Segur Le Chateau

The picturesque village of Segur-le-Chateaux and named as one of the "Most Beautiful Villages in France" was a major town centre during the Middle Ages. The remains of its 12th Century Chateaux can still be seen as half-timbered houses set into the rock. Nowadays this beautiful village is a peaceful haven to relax and have dinner or a few cold drinks on a hot day. During July and August there is a weekly market selling fresh produce on Monday night and lots of other planned events.

This is a 5 star property built to a very high standard. The attention to detail is first class. Spacious and well appointed the property is set in a very quiet rural location which provides the best of both worlds - luxury and relaxation. There are some really pretty villages nearby and the major towns are within an easy drive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Most amazing accommodation I’ve ever stayed in France. Pool was amazing and the place was very modern and clean with everything you need. Would definitely recommend this to any family with children but you do need a car to get around. Myself and my family had a fantastic holiday with absolutely no complaints.

Lovely accommodation, owner very welcoming, on site, but not intrusive, fully equipped kitchen, pool very clean. Local shop approx 5 miles away, but welcome basket on arrival, giving time to settle before heading to local shops. Choice of board games available, owner has a good selection of English dvds available on request. No TV signal, or WIFI, but not needed. Nearest airport Limoges, about 30 mile away A car is a must, as no shops or activities within walking distance. Property approx 450miles from Calais. A perfect relaxing holiday for up to 6. Will be returning again.

Beautiful property well maintained in an excellent quiet location. Having a car definitely an advantage
Beds are the most comfortable we've slept in. Good supermarket Super U in Lubersac sold everything you will need. No TV or WiFi only DVD upstairs but wasn't a problem for us. We had a great week with friends one of whom is slightly disabled so having a bedroom on the ground floor with shower suited our needs perfectly. Good communication from Clare throughout whole process. Weather was beautiful up to 35 degrees some days so pool very welcome sun beds very sturdy and even had a pull out table at the side. Definitely a holiday we will not forget.
