About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Tony Mitchell

Wendy & Tony have renovated the barn and the annex to provide 4* accomodation. We enjoy welcoming new guests and are on hand to let guest know about local events and things to so.

Year property purchased 2006
Why this location? The old farm is in a small hamlet, with very kind neighbours. The views from the property are of green fields, the cows munch contentedly. It is just peaceful and provides a safe environment for children. with a local bread shop a 15 minute walk away and a supermarket 15 mins drive, everything is very handy.
Unique benefits of property With a heated pool and sleeping 13, this is a perfect place for family get-togethers or groups of friends to stay. There are walks and cycle rides from the front door and places to visit but most of all, it is a place to unwind and let the children run around.

The Owner Recommends


We have a number of bicycles that you may borrow to explore the local area or just pop down to the bread shop to buy your morning croissant.

Limoge Porcelain Factory Tours

Limoges is the well know centre of porcelain production and tours are available at a number of factories in and outside Limoges. Well worth a visit to understand the history of this beautiful tableware and see how it is made. Children will be interested, its not just for adults!

Scenovision, Benevent-l'Abbaye

This is a spectacular presentation combining a tour and 3D cinema to present the life in the Creuse 100 years ago.

Vassivière Lake

The Lac de Vassivière or Vassivière Lake is one of France's largest artificial lakes of about 10 square kilometres (2,500 acres). It is the largest area of water in the Limousin region of France and provides water supplies, hydroelectricity, and leisure facilities. Facilities include: 5 patrolled beaches, a small marina for water skiing, canoeing, wake-boarding and windsurfing.


There are footpaths from beside the Barn or there are marked footpaths for a range of longer walks. You could take a packed lunch and sit by the river to watch the birds of prey hunting.

Wolf Sanctury, Gueret

In the heart of the Chabrières forest, just a few miles from Guéret, the Loups de Chabrières animal park is the place to discover over forty animals in their natural environment. All the family, the adults as well as the children, can appreciate the relationship between man and wolf. This is a truly unique site in the Limousin region!

10 / 10 Brian K 20 August, 2018

This was probably the best Gite we have visited in France. The owners had thought of everything and could not do to much for us, even baking a cake for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration. The heated pool was used by all our party from the youngest to the oldest and was extremely popular. With a group pf 10 we were able to eat together and yet there was room for us to have quiet times away from the crowd. We will always remember our times in Pradiex.
