Further details outdoors

The nearest village is Cheronnac which has a small bar and post office, and is about one kilometer down the road, the other direction is Vayres which has a number of small essential shops and a bar.

We are only 10 minutes from the town of St-Mathieu which has a good supermarket and general shops. There is also a swimming lake and artificial beach here for the children, crazy golf, children's play ground and canoe & pedalo hire during the peak summer. It's a wonderful place for a picnic, with plenty of shade under the trees surrounding the lake.

Further details

Security and refundable breakage deposit required when booking gite of 150 GBP which will be refunded after the gite has been thoroughly checked (refund usually done one week after guests have left).

We expect guests to leave the Gite as they find it as far as cleanliness is concerned, failure to do so may result in a 50 GBP reduction from the security deposit for the additional cleaning required.

The Limousin region

The Haute Vienne (87) is the least industrialized region of France and it is famous for vast expanses of Chestnut and Oak forests, pleasant villages and large lakes. There is a wide range of outdoor activities and a diverse variety of wildlife in the area and the area has now been designated as part of France's newest Parc Regionale.

We are situated at the Charente/ Dordogne/ Haute Vienne borbers and normally receive around 2000 hours of sunshine a year on average.

Whilst the area provides the perfect setting for a summer holiday it is also particularly beautiful in the spring and autumn, when the changing colours of the seasons are a photographers dream and the weather can be very pleasant for walking and cycling.

The attractions of the other departments of Limousin, namely, Correze (19) and Creuse (23) are within easy reach as are neighbouring Charente (16) & The Dordogne (24).

"LARGE HOMELY GITE IN A FAB LOCATION"

Myself, husband and 5 teenagers stayed here for 1 week and we all loved the relaxed atmosphere of the gite and it's location. we had bbq's most nights and there is a large area to play ball … More

Good to know that you enjoyed yourself and the gite was up to your specifications. The good weather is always a bonus when you are on holiday, but unfortunately I can't control that. Water pressure has always been a problem but have again written to the water company to see if anything can be done, so we will wait and see what happens, but nothing happens overnight here.

"Had a wonderful time and cant wait to return"

The service provided was excellent and very friendly. The gite itself was beautiful and had a very French feel about it. The gite was very spacious and would easily sleep up to eight people, it was clean and very comfortable. It is situated in the heart of the French countryside and there was plenty of things to see and do, they provided a welcome pack which enabled you to find all the local amenities easily and also places of interest to visit. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here and look forward to our next trip there.

We aim to please, and we are glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again in the future.

"A very pretty Gite with plenty of room"

The gite is large with plenty of room, there were 5 of us plus 1 dog. The rooms are very clean and well laid out and well stocked, the rear garden is very large with a seating area, chairs & table, 2 sun loungers and a BBQ (don't forget to ask for it as it is kept in a barn to keep dry...we forgot to ask and bought one).
The very thick walls of the gite keep it very cool on hot days and there is a fire for when it is cold. We had the en-suit room which was very nice and the bathroom very large with a power shower (the water pressure is low though) our only complaint about the bedroom is that the bed was not the most comfortable, the pillows are very soft so if you like them harder I would bring your own. Our friends and their son had the other 2 rooms with a shared bathroom that could be locked on both sides which was a great idea. The other couple also found the pillows too soft but thier son slept fine every night.
A car is a must as it is remote but lovely & quiet with amaizing walks from the front door, all big tourist attractions are a cars journey away though.
Rochechouart is 10 mins away and is lovely, St. Junien is 25 mins away and has everything there, big hypermarkets, pretty streets and shops and a beautiful river.
Our dog loved playing with one of the owners dogs which is a bonus if you are taking a dog and the garden is more than big enough for them. The owners Ron & Jackie are English and speak French, they live ajoined to the Gite which is a huge help if you need them.
The only big problem we had with the gite was there was no WIFI which is advertised (we were told you could get it if you stand outside the front but we never did in 2 weeks) we had relied on the internet to look for things to do in the area but as we could not get on it, we had to rely on maps and info obtained before we traveled. We were give the code to connect from the owners but never did manage to get it connected, if you don't intend to use the internet then this is not a problem but otherwise print off all the things you want before you go and forget about Twitter & Facebook, lol.
The gite is well worth the money as it is very large and well stocked. There was parking for both cars right outsid ethe front door too. You will need a car, but leave it behind somedays and walk the small roads that surround the Gite.

Glad you enjoyed your stay.
