Les Trois Petites Maisons ( La Grace)
We offer 3 cottages (1x1 bed, and 2x2 bed ) which have been lovingly restored , with original features kept wherever possible and beautifully furnished to a high standard.
The cottages are set in approximately 1 and half acres of their own grounds, with the front gardens landscaped and a lazy meandering path leading to the road, which is a stones throw from Lake Mondon (see below for amenities).
Our back garden has been transformed by a 10m x 5m in ground swimming pool (4ft deep) and sunbathing terrace, there are shingled outside areas for each cottage where hours can be spent relaxing and rejuvenating or reading a book, with a glass of wine under the shade of huge parasols.
For the slightly more adventurous, just a 2 minute walk away, opposite the lake is a communal swimming pool with waterslides. On the lake there are pedaloes for hire and in the peak season there are often donut boat rides. This site also offers tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts and boules. (all these amenities for a nominal fee).
There are also many stunning wooded walks along the banks of the river La Benaize, with waterfalls and prehistoric rocks (dolman), where you will find an abundance of wildlife.
For the fishing enthusiast a `carte de peche` can be purchased for a half / full day or weekly ticket.
There are 2 restaurants/bars overlooking Lake Mondon, both within a few minutes walk of our cottages.
There are local shops and supermarkets with a 5 miles radius, or for the larger supermarket there is La Souterraine or St Benoit.
Our cottages are approximately a 10 minute drive from Junction 22 of the A20.

Hello, We are Steve and Jacqui. We purchased the property in 2012 and immediately started renovating it. We believe it is a beautiful property in a unique location. We have lived in France for nearly 5 years and have now renovated 5 properties, but have now hung up our tools and are settling down to running the cottages for holiday rentals. 2016 will be our 2nd year, we thoroughly enjoyed our first year and had some lovely guests. We look forward to next years guests and hope to meet you soon!

Amazing village untouched since the 2nd world war.
A beautifully decorated cottage in a peaceful and natural setting. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of space for everything. The bedroom was gorgeous and the bed very comfortable.
Steve and Jacqui were friendly and welcoming hosts and on hand for any queries we had.
The only downside was the weather, which was cloudy and cool, which was a shame, as there are some lovely swimming lakes in the area. The countryside and villages are really pretty (fields of sunflowers and freshly rolled hay), and a highlight was the villages of Gargilesse, Crozant and Fresselines - an artist's corner following the steps of Monet. There were many 'arteliers' with exhibitions, often in the artist's own home. Recommended for a 'get away from it all' type holiday!
