Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Located in the beautiful 'Vallée de la Gartempe' our holiday gite is in fact the converted donkey stable adjoining our 'Maison de Maitre type of farmhouse. No longer a 'working' farm, nevertheless, part of the attraction of the place is a small menagerie of sheep, donkeys, chickens, ducks and geese that will form part of your surroundings when staying here.We also have a productive vegetable garden which dependant on the season you re welcome to wander in,maybe help us pick some crops then help make some jam or chutney to take home.
The self-catering gite would suit a family or couple and a cot for an infant could be placed in either of the two bedrooms if needed. A fully fitted ground floor kitchen has the usual range of modern appliances with a washer dryer for laundry. The kitchen dining table can comfortably seat six. The other rooms are reached by an open stair case from the kitchen.
The comfortable living room has satellite TV with most UK and French freesat channels, a DVD player and free wifi internet access. The fireplace can be lit for comfort early or late in the season as well as the Rayburn kitchen range feeding upstairs radiators during the winter season.
There are two bedrooms,one with a double bed and one with 2 single beds. A futon in the living can be converted to a third sleeping place if required. The double bedroom has an en suite bathroom. This would have to be shared with the other gite occupants. A cot and high chair for an infant can be provided on request.
Various sized paddling pools and a Bar-B-Q are provided along with several outdoor and indoor games to keep both adults and kids entertained.so along with our hedgehogs bats and numerous birds of prey to spot not forgetting our beautiful clear night sky to star gaze we hope there is always something to watch or do.
Offsite activities that can be pursued are canoeing kayaking, fishing, walking and cycling and visiting the surrounding medieval towns of Montmorillon, Bellac and Le Dorat. A little further afield the tourist attractions of 'Futuroscope', La planète des Crocodiles, La Vallée des Singes, L'île aux serpents, etc. are all interesting days out for kids within reasonable distance.

The Limousin region
La Basse Marche – Vallée de la Gartempe
Au nord de la Haute-Vienne, le plateau de la Basse Marche présente un relief bien aplanis (250 m d'altitude). Ce plateau développe des reliefs en creux, à la faveur des rivières qui traversent le plateau d'est en ouest : La Brame, le Vincou, la Semme, La Couze, La Benaize, la Glayeule, la Bazine, et la plus importante d'entre-elles : la Gartempe.
Les lignes de crêtes des Monts de Blond et des Monts d'Ambazac marquent la rupture entre le bassin de la Gartempe et celui de la Vienne.

The Monts de Blond and Monts d'Ambazac crater line marks the rupture between the Gartempe and Vienne basins.
