Located in the beautiful 'Vallée de la Gartempe' our holiday gite is in fact the converted donkey stable adjoining our 'Maison de Maitre type of farmhouse. No longer a 'working' farm, nevertheless,part of the attraction is our small menagerie of sheep,donkeys,chickens ducks,geese,cats and a dog that will form part of your surroundings when staying here.We also have a productive vegetable plot which you are welcome to wander through,maybe help us pick some crops.

The gite has a fully fitted ground floor kitchen (overlooking the garden) with the usual range of modern appliances including a washer dryer for laundry.The kitchen dining table can comfortably seat six.The other rooms are reached by an open stair case from the kitchen.

The comfortable living room has satellite TV with most UK and French freesat channels, a DVD player,games,books and free wifi. The fireplace can be lit for comfort early or late in the season as well as the Rayburn kitchen range feeding upstairs radiators during the winter season.

There are two bedrooms,one with a double bed and one with 2 single beds. A futon in the living can also be converted to a third sleeping place if required. The double bedroom has an en suite bathroom.This would have to be shared with the other gite occupants.For the smaller members of the family a cot,high-chair and stair gate can be provided on request.

Outside in the large garden there is a 'bandstand' with table,chairs and a BBQ and pizza oven for your use as well as various sized paddling pools and several outdoor games/ home grown activities for children and adults or maybe you would just enjoy spotting the wildlife,stargazing our beautiful clear night sky or just relaxing in the peace and quiet with a glass of wine we hope there is something for you and your family here.

Approx 15 min walk from our house along a track leads you down to the river Gartempe where you can picnic and in certain areas of the river children can paddle safely.Other activities that can be pursued locally are canoeing fishing,walking and cycling and weekly markets in the surrounding medieval towns of Montmorillon,Bellac,Le Dorat and Chavigny .A little further afield the tourist attractions of 'Futuroscope', La planète des Crocodiles, La Vallée des Singes, L'île aux serpents and Lac Pardour are all interesting days out for kids within reasonable driving distance.

A welcome pack is included in the price comprising of tea,coffee, sugar, butter and our homemade jam.

The Limousin region

La Basse Marche – Vallée de la Gartempe

Au nord de la Haute-Vienne, le plateau de la Basse Marche présente un relief bien aplanis (250 m d'altitude). Ce plateau développe des reliefs en creux, à la faveur des rivières qui traversent le plateau d'est en ouest : La Brame, le Vincou, la Semme, La Couze, La Benaize, la Glayeule, la Bazine, et la plus importante d'entre-elles : la Gartempe.

Les lignes de crêtes des Monts de Blond et des Monts d'Ambazac marquent la rupture entre le bassin de la Gartempe et celui de la Vienne.

The Basse Marche - the Gartempe Valley

In the north of the Haute-Vienne, the Basse Marche plateau flattens out (250m altitude). This plateau develops hollows which favour the rivers that cross the plateau from east to west: Brame, Vincou, Semme, Couze, Benaize, Glayeule, Bazine, and the most important among them: Gartempe.

The Monts de Blond and Monts d'Ambazac crater line marks the rupture between the Gartempe and Vienne basins.


Bussière-Poitevine (Occitan: Bussiére) is a commune in the Haute-Vienne department in the Limousin region in western France.

Nearby towns Montmorillon - Le Dorat - Bellac - Chouvigny
