About the Owner, Mrs Julia Hedley

We bought the property in 2013 after many holidays in various parts of France. Our intention was to provide accommodation that we would be happy to stay in. During the past two years we have made the gites into comfortable and functional accommodation. We now have a couple, Debra and David who manage everything for us whilst we are in the UK.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? Gites de Campagne is in a peaceful rural location, yet only a 5 minute drive to the village of St Etienne de Fursac. It is ideal for long walks and cycling, if you love the countryside this is perfect!<br/>We have a secluded pool area with lovely views of the garden and beyond, you can also see as far as the Ambazac hills.<br/>This area is uncommercialised and a perfect get away.
Unique benefits of property If you are looking for peace and quiet Gites de Campagne is ideal, if you are looking for things to do, there is plenty in the surrounding area and the town of La Souterraine is only 15 kms.<br/>There are lakes which provide swimming and water sports, cultural days out and city shopping in Limoges.<br/>

The Owner Recommends

Places to visit

There are three lakes within a 15 minute drive, each has different activities, water sports, picnic areas and childrens play areas.
Further afield, just over an hours drive is the well known Lake Vassiviere, where you can pursue water sports and have boat trips as well as swimming and picnic areas.
Orador Sur Glane is a worth a visit whilst staying in this area, , the village was destroyed by Nazis in 1942 and 642 of its inhabitants were massacred, the village is kept as a permanent memorial.
Limoges, about forty minutes drive, is the capital city of the Limousin, the city centre has cobbled streets and historic buildings.
La Souterraine just twenty minutes drive and has large supermarkets and a Saturday morning market for local produce. A very pretty town with cobbled street and a church dating back to the 11th Century.
St Etienne de Fursac our nearest village, just 3 kms, has an Italian bar and restaurant, a patisserie, boucherie, post office, bank, small supermarket and a self service petrol station.
The village of Benevent L'Abbaye has a new bar/restaurant, Bon Appetit is a small cosy bar with a garden at the back, small menu but worth a visit.
