The Limousin has a quiet, unhurried pace of life, making it a perfect holiday destination.
Haute-Vienne is steeped in cultural & historical heritage, with well preserved abbeys & Roman churches (Soulignac & Chateauponsac) and fortified castles (Chalus & Montbrun).
Limoges is the department's capital and has long been famous for its enamel and fine china production.
Chez Corney is close to the Charante and Dordogne borders. Day trips to famous Cognac and pretty Brantome are within a 90 minute drive, and the architectural and shopping delights of Bordeaux is 2 hours.
Rochechouart, a beautiful walled chateau town, and roughly 45kms west of Limoges, has its own art gallery, and is a great location to explore the delights of the Limousin region. Surrounded by beautiful green countryside, there are lakes and beaches for swimming and water sports, all in easy reach.
Rochechouart has a large lake, renowned for its quality fishing. Whether you want to relax, shop, be active or explore there is something for everyone. There is a range of contemporary and traditional restaurants and bars, for you to choose from.
Several festivals are held during July and August, in Rochechouart and the surrounding towns and hamlets.

"Impeccable! Beautiful location, comfortable accommodation and great fun"
Chez Corney's location is terrific - quiet, relaxing and picturesque, but not too far from the amenities of Rochechouart (several good bakeries/patisseries, a grocery/butcher, some banks/cash points, a small supermarket and a number of decent eateries). It's also only a fairly short car journey from St Junien, where there is wide range range of services and shops - including several large and very well stocked supermarkets (Hyper U being the most comprehensive). The cottage is lovely - comfortable and clean, and the first floor terrace is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch or to watch the sun go down over a glass of wine or two. The kids loved the pool, which was clean and well equipped with plenty of sun loungers, parasols, boogie boards etc etc. In fact, trying to persuade them to leave the cottage to do some sightseeing was tricky. Sue, the owner, was really helpful (and prompt) in responding to questions before our arrival, and Kate, who manages the property locally, was a real star - very helpful and knowledgeable, and really went the extra mile to make sure we had a fantastic stay. If you're looking for a relaxing break, or one which is well-placed for exploring a very interesting part of France, in lovely surroundings, with the reassurance of a friendly and professional contact locally, Chez Corney is difficult to beat.
Thank you for the great review. Our aim is to provide you with excellent service; We are thrilled you had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed Chez Corney.
Maybe we can welcome you back again, and we can give you a discount as returning guests.

"Perfect place to have a time of relaxation"
We went with our children to Chez Corney and enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed very nicely by the local contact person. The accommodation was clean and as expected after seeing the pictures. On the sunny days we enjoyed the swimming pool, which was located in a private spot and has a little cabin close to it with some toys and more.
We are pleased you had an enjoyable holiday - Thank you for your review. The swimming pool is definately a favourite of guests who stay with us.

"extremely well managed"
The property was immaculately clean and we received a lovely welcome from the property manager. Super private pool which was not overlooked at all. A choice of al fresco eating areas - especially loved the balcony in the evening. Be aware that you walk through the large bedroom to get to the other so privacy is limited but this was not a problem for use travelling with our children, might not suit 2 couples. Lots to see and do in the area and the house was also extremely well equipped with games too.
Glad you had a great holiday - Thank you for the lovely review

"Terrific break in peaceful villa"
My husband and I stayed at Chez Corney for 4 days in early June. The weather was fantastic and all the facilities provided made for a relaxing and stress-free break. We hired a car and visited Rochechouart, Limoges and Oradour-sur-Glane, the village abandoned after its destruction at the end of WW2 which was fascinating, if rather sobering.Very good restaurants are within a short car journey but it was great just to stock up on gorgeous food and wine in the local shops and enjoy eating in the sun.
The villa was really clean and well equipped, both inside and out, and the location is tranquil and attractive. We would definitely visit again.
Thankyou for your review. We are pleased you had a great holiday.
