Situated in Chatain, a small hamlet surrounded by picturesque countryside in the heart of the Limousin, this French family home retains much of its traditional style whilst offering the comfort of modern amenities.

The pretty village of Royere de Vassiviere is just 3km away with restaurant, bar, supermarket, baker, butcher, 14th century Gothic Church, pharmacy and Tuesday market. Drive a further 2kms and you’ll find yourself at the Lac de Vassiviere, one of the largest lakes in France and the most popular destination for holidaymakers visiting the area. With six sandy beaches, supervised swimming in the summer, organised children’s games and a multitude of water sports for all the family, it really is a perfect place to relax or have fun with all the family. This 1000 hectare, man made lake, also has 300 kms of woodland trails, ideal for cycling, walking and riding and there are plenty of restaurants and bars. For the more adventurous you can sail, windsurf, canoe, water ski or simply fish, which is permitted all year round.

The island in the middle of the lake is home to a Contemporary Art Museum designed by the late Aldo Rossi. Access to the island is by foot, tourist train or boat.

There are many other pretty villages nearby including; Feniers, Peyrat, Felletin, Gentioux and the house is just a short drive away from the towns of Bourganeuf (Wednesday market) and Aubusson. Limoges and Guéret are both around 60 kms away.

The Limousin/Auvergne region

The Creuse is a lovely part of the Limousin, with a stunning series of lakes, rivers alive with a huge variety of fish and softly rolling countryside that rises to a stark plateau. The department, which lies in the northeast of the region, is also full history and home to some of the finest craftsman in the world.

"Lovely house in tranquil surroundings"

Had a wonderful holiday in this house with 3 generations of our family. The house met all our requirements and is a lovely, comfortable house for a family holiday and very peaceful
We had wonderful weather while in Limousin and spent most of our days on the beach at the beautiful Lac de Vassiviere which is an easy short drive away. The children aged 2, 5 and 6 loved the lake and it was completely safe.
Basic shopping can be done in Royere de Vassiviere or for more choice and bigger shops, in the larger towns of Bourganeuf or Aubusson.
