Lovely gite, ideal suited to 4 persons.
Situated in a rural hamlet, but only 8km from the nearest large town and 3km from the nearest village.

We live on site, so if are available to make sure that you are happy with the accommodation and facilities provided, but also to impart information on the surrounding area and recommend places to visit, if required.

In ground swimming pool. Roman steps lead into our approx 9 metre leisure pool. The pool has a patio area with pool furniture.
It is cleaned every morning and is generally sparkling!
There is no washing machine in the gite, but a service wash (wash, line dry, fold and return normally the same day) is available for a modest 5 euros. After all, who wants to spend their whole holiday washing clothes!
For two week bookings, clean bed linen is provided at the end of the first week (no charge).
We enjoy the countryside and experiencing the rural way of life, attending the local fetes, chatting with the neighbours, looking after our guests. We are happy to spend time with guests suggesting places to visit etc, but equally happy to leave them to enjoy their holiday in peace! Always willing to answer questions on living in France for prospective house-hunters.
|Year property purchased||2005|
|Why this location?||We had spent some years prior to purchasing renting gites in the area and decided that this area would be perfect for a rental location. We are situated in the Perigord Limousin Regional National Park and only 2 km from the border with the Dordogne so perfect for visiting both regions.|
|Unique benefits of property||Our property offers immaculately clean accommodation situated within beautiful, fully enclosed grounds, with lovely, unrestricted views towards Le Chalard.
We are also situated approximately 5 km from what will soon become the first European Elephant Sanctuary.
Saint Yrieix is our nearest town, approximately 8 km away. The town itself has a lovely medieval centre with restaurants and bars. There are 4 supermarkets, small individual shops, a lovely lake and porcelain outlet which sells the famous Limoges porcelain.
Just a few km away, in the Dordogne. Jumilhac has a beautiful chateau, stunning views across the countryside and a lovely central courtyard in front of the chateau where you can sit and enjoy a meal or a glass of wine/coffee.
For the more active (!), there is a great walk down to, and along, the river.
The perfect place to while away the day.
Brantome has been called the Venice of the Dordogne. Situated around a 30 minute drive, it is a stunning place where you can pic-nic, take a kayak ride or simply walk around the small shops and cafes.
A firm favourite with both ourselves and guests.
A perfect rural Gite in an area we haven’t explored before, and which has lots of interesting towns, chateaux, markets and other attractions, including a great choice of places to eat and relax. We’ll definitely be returning.
The Gite is well equipped, comfortable and has great outdoor space including a private terrace where we ate all meals. Lovely pool. Very clean when we arrived and easy to keep clean during our stay. The Gite has everything we look for in a holiday home.
Kay and Paul are excellent hosts, always available, always helpful and happy to chat, but not intrusive in any way.
Thank you John, Alison and Rosie.
It really was a pleasure to meet you all. You would be most welcome back anytime and I should add that if I could give you all a review myself you would get 10/10 as guests !
