The property can sleep up to 8 people, and is fully equipped with everything needed for a family holiday. We can also provide a cot and a highchair. Behind the property is a large safe & secure private garden, patio furniture and BBQ for alfresco dining!

The location is perfect for that ideal 'get away from it all break' where you can enjoy a leisurely walk or a bike ride around the countryside. There is also a local riding stables, a tennis court and a golf course a short drive away. There are many leisure lakes with beaches and cafes, or for the more energetic there are watersports.

The cottage has outstanding views of the surrounding countryside, which prove to be spectacular throughout the four seasons. The self-contained property is fully equipped with everything needed for a family holiday....

This newly renovated cottage is located on the edge of the rural village of Janaillat, which is situated centrally within a triangle of 3 towns, La Souterraine, Bourganeuf and Gueret, and is only a short drive away from the village of Bénévent-l'Abbaye. You can visit medieval towns for markets, cafés and restaurants, or you can simply relax by the pool and look out onto the amazing views.

A relaxing rural holiday cottage, with plenty to see and do. This is the perfect place for the whole family to un-wind and de-stress!

It is also an ideal location for house-hunting as we are ideally located to span a vast area of this wonderful region.

"Fabulous Gite, Excellent Value for Money, Wonderful Heated Pool"

We had a wonderful holiday at Meadow View. The location is breath-taking, the house is immaculate, well furnished and superbly equipped. The pool and garden are very well maintained, and we all had lots of fun splashing around in the pool and relaxing in the sun. There are many towns & villages to visit, and the lakes are an absolute must to see. The owners Bryan & Jane are extremely helpful and very welcoming.
We had a perfect holiday, just what we needed. We highly recommend Meadow View and will be going back again soon.

"beautiful setting, warm welcome, friendly"

I stayed in Meadow View with my children and grand children. The owners, Brian and Jane, did their best to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. Rooms are big enough. Sheet an towels were available freely for us as well as beds for the babies. The swimming pool was nice and clean, there were games and toys avalaible for the children in the garden. We loved the view from the house and we definitly recommand this rental for holiday.
