House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The house sits in an elevated position in a small Limousin village on the border of the Creuse and the Haute Vienne. There are actually two properties within the same garden.
The houses are very homely and have a distinct 'French' feel. This is the 'real France' unspoilt by tourism and off the beaten-track. The houses come fully equipped with all that you need and we include a small welcome pack to each visitor ( a bottle of wine, some bread and whatever salad/ veg might be growing locally at the time!)
Both houses are contained within a small , private garden equipped with outside table, chairs and BBQ.
In the larger house there is one main room in which there is a small kitchenette, a dining area and a lounge area in front of the wood burning fire. There is an open staircase up to a double bedroom and bathroom and then further stairs lead to a loft bedroom with a double and single bed.
In the smaller house there is a small sitting area and utility space together with another upstairs bedroom with separate toilet, sink and walk in shower room.
Nearest shops, restaurants, chemist, boulangerie etc 2 miles in either direction of the house.
There is lots to see and do in the area. There are beautiful lakes and rivers on your doorstep as well as traditional 'stuck in time villages
to explore. Limoges airport is approxiamately 45 mins away by car and Limoges is a large and interesting City to spend the day. Other places of interest include Oradour-sur-Glane, ( village destroyed by the Germans and now a museum) Aubusson, ( famous for tapestries), La Souterraine ( nearest large trown with market and supermarkets).
The Limousin is a nature lovers paradise and the perfect place for anyone wanting to experience life in a traditional, unspoilt French village.

About this location
The Limousin region
Without any doubt - "The Jewel in the Crown"
350 Kilometres south of Paris, the Limousin region is the traditional heartland of France. The region is made up of three departments - La Creuse (23) to the east, Haute Vienne (87) to the west, and Correze (19) to the south.
The A20 motorway cuts through the centre of the region providing excellent road links both north to Paris and south to Toulouse. (East and west is a little more difficult).
As one of the lowest populated regions in France, the Limousin has largely escaped the onward march of "progress" and retains some of the most unspoilt countryside in Europe.
This stunningly beautiful region of still lakes, fast flowing streams, gentle rolling valleys and forested mountains has been one of the best kept secrets in France. From the lovely old city of Limoges to the tiny hamlets scattered across the hills and forests, and the pure rivers and lakes, discover the friendliness and old world charm of one of the last remaining havens of the "real France"
A land of contrasts, from the gently rolling countryside of the Haute Vienne to the rugged terrain of the Ambazac hills, the Limousin countryside has witnessed over 2000 years of history. The ancient landscape where Neanderthal man once roamed gave shelter to the Romans and, later, Richard the Lionheart. The moorlands, purple with heather, inspired Monet and the impressionist painters. The magnificent tapestries of Aubusson, the world famous porcelain of Limoges, the resting place of Richard the Lionheart, the ancient Pilgrim route of St. Jacques de Compostella, and the architecture of a region which gave birth to the masons who built Notre Dame and the Louvre. The Limousin is living history.......
Heaven for all lovers of nature and outdoor pursuits
3400 kilometres of trout rivers and streams, 48 hectares of 1st category man-made lakes and 2600 hectares of municipal and private ponds; the Creuse is angling heaven. Whatever takes your fancy; trout, carp, pike and many other fish are simply waiting to be hooked.
Imagine riding along leafy country lanes, across open fields or through majestic forests. In the Creuse it's easy to be one with nature and horse riding is an ideal way of exploring 'France's green heart'.
On or off-road, the Creuse has it; roads where you're more likely to meet a cow than a car; hundreds of kilometres of marked trails through forests and open countryside, downhill runs... Take part or watch one of the many mountain bike events organised throughout the year
