The Gîte is a beautifully renovated 1 bedroom cottage, it sleeps 2/4 persons. It has a large bedroom with a seated area, kitchen, dining and sitting room area, with a bed settee, bathroom and separate WC. It has its own fenced and furnished garden with a barbecue.

It is surrounded by farmland and is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle, bustle and pollution of modern day life. The benefits are vast; you can sit out in the evening and appreciate the wonders of rural living. The sunsets are stunning and the skies at night are clear and full of stars. There is no light pollution to spoil this magical spectacle of the night sky. You can wander the lanes and tracks that surround the Gîte and obtain the full benefit of this beautiful part of France.

For exercise there are walking and cycling routes right on our door step. We provide maps for your use. Bring your own cycle or hire one from us at a reasonable price.

We are situated in the North West of the Limousin on the border between the Haute Vienne (Limousin) and the Vienne (Poitou-Charentes). We have easy access to all the Limousin Departments of Haute Vienne, Creuse and Corrèze and also the Vienne which is part of the Poitou-Charentes Region. If what you love is nature then you will love the Limousin and Poitou-Charentes regions. Wildlife abounds with birds of prey, pine martyns, deer and wild boar common in the areas adjacent to the gîte. The Brenne National Parks are 1-hour north and are famous for their abundant waterfowl

Markets are held in all the local villages each week selling local produce all year round. They are more frequent during the summer months. A very large regional market takes place at Les Herrolles around the 29th of each month. It is reported that this is the largest market in France.Here you can buy anything from clothes, to food, to livestock and cookware. Les Herolles, is 20 minute drive away from Fanfreda Gîte.

If it is the history of the Limousin that you are interested in then this area will interest you. Chateaux, cathedrals and monuments are abundant in the area. Chateau Bourg-Archambault is only a 5 minute drive away and La Collégiale, at Le Dorat built in 1060 only 15 minutes south of us. The region's capital, Limoges, situated on the banks of the Vienne, is 1-hour drive south. It offers a magnificent cathedral and gardens, world famous porcelain, enamel, restaurants, theatres and a spectacular medieval quarter, with cobble stone walkways and fascinating architecture.

In the summer you will find a host of things to do – there is family horse racing at Le Dorat, sports, racing car and motorbike racing at the track at Circuit du Val de Vienne, near L'isle Jourdain. Music and dance festivals are held annually in Bellac and Confolens.

If beach activities are your thing then visit - Lac de Saint-Pardoux – Santrop has a sand beach with a safe roped off swimming area, beach games, inflatables, fitness trail, beach volleyball, petanque, pedal boats rental, canoes and boats.
