Description from owner

Description

Situated in a small hamlet overlooking the Gartempe valley, La Butte consists of a well-equipped kitchen, large lounge/dining room, with log fire and French windows opening onto the south-facing garden, double bedroom with king-size bed, 2nd bedroom (twin beds), shower room and separate toilet. Gardens to the front and rear are mainly grass with conifers, aromatic roses and shrubs.
Here you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural France, yet with the bustling cities of Poitiers and Limoges, each only 45 minutes away. Just 3 minutes away you will find Bussiere Poitevine, with a grocer, butcher, baker, greengrocer, bar, restaurant and hairdresser.

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Green rolling hills dotted with picturesque hamlets, Limousin cattle grazing on the pastureland, unspoilt rivers and lakes, buzzards soaring gracefully in the valleys, colourful sunsets and starlit nights.

Green rolling hills dotted with picturesque hamlets, Limousin cattle grazing on the pastureland, unspoilt rivers and lakes, buzzards soaring gracefully in the valleys, colourful sunsets and starlit nights.
Visit Limoges with its half-timbered buildings and porcelain museums, Aubusson for tapestries, Mediaeval towns such as Chauvigny on the Vienne river, Poitiers' narrow streets and Futuroscope. Step back in time at Oradour sur Glane, the martyred village, visit the Chateau at Rochechouart, or follow the 'Route de Haut Limousin', taking you through some of the most beautiful of the regions countryside.

Bussiere-Poitevine

An ideal base for walking, cycling, house-hunting or simply relaxing, La Butte overlooks the Gartempe river with a choice of sentiers pedestres (walking routes) starting from the Mairie in the nearby town of Bussiere Poitevine. From Thiat you can walk to the Saut de la Brame (rapids). For those with more energy, canoes and kayaks are available to hire at the Gartempe near Lathus and a multitude of watersports are available at Lac de St Pardoux, 40 mins away.
Bellac is worth a visit with fabulous views over the Vincou valley and riverside walks. Chateauponsac is perched above the Gartempe, again with amazing views. The mediaeval towns of Montmorillon and Le Dorat with its collegiale, are a fascinating visit and have good restaurants serving a wide range of local cuisine. This year, Le Dorat commemorates the saints of the Limousin with Les Ostensions,which takes place every 7 years.

“Fantastic gite in lovely rural area”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2013

Very well equipped and kept gite in unspoilt rural area, would recommend it wholeheartedly. The property is thoughtfully and thoroughly equipped, was very clean and well kept and had everything as advertised, high quality furnishing to boot. My son missed wifi, but we didn't!

“Spacious, well furnished house at Excellent location to unwind”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2012

It was a rural retreat with all mod coms. We were impressed with location of the house.LaButt is perched on top of the hill with beautifull views. The garden is beautiful with lot of space to lounge around and soak up the sun Living room/Diner is very stylish. Interior furnishing is fabulous It gives you the feeling of homely rural place where you can relax and be inspired. Various locations to explore are within easy reach. We had a lovely time by the banks of river Gartempe. I recommend stay at LaButt to anybody in need of peace and relaxation.

“Rural paradise, perfect retreat to enjoy stress-free life in French countryside”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

We (older couple) spent a whole month in this small but very comfortable cottage, with glorious sunshine and lovely view over the Gartempe river. No use for car, supermarket, i-phone nor laptop, everything you need is within cycling-distance at Bussière-Poitevine, their inhabitants are glad to help you. The gently sloping hills and valleys provide beautifull short and long walking, riding and cycling-tours, where you will see famous Limousin cows, sheep and horses, and meet squirrels, weasels, rabits, hares and lots of different birds. There are also many "site touristique" around so do'nt be surprised to find (the ruins of) castles, donjons, manors, chapels and bridges on your way, often dating back to mediaval times. Culture-lovers can make a trip to Poitiers (Joan of Arc) or Limoges, nature-lovers should take their binocles and enjoy the rural flora and fauna in perfect peace and quite of the French "campagne" - with a delightfull glass of (Poitou) whine at hand.

“A truly relaxing rural retreat.”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2011

Our holiday was a truly relaxing week. Situated within the tranquil settings of the Gartempe valley the house was a perfect getaway. It was well equipped with all of the facilities that we could want and need, the bedrooms were comfortable and the views were breathtaking. We had a lovely peaceful holiday.
