Description from owner

Description

Surrounded by acres of forest, next to a river and out of sight of any neighbours our old mill is a great place to get away from it all. It is very spacious, has two fireplaces, two double bedrooms (plus a bunk-bed for children) and a great kitchen.

The old mill has been extensively renovated inside which makes it very comfortable. However we have retained the mills traditional French character, using pieces of mill equipment as furniture, lovely stone floors, exposed stone walls and shuttered windows. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, one with a shower, the other with a huge old cast iron bath from a hotel in Paris - perfect for two! The mill has a vast sitting room and equally large kitchen and dining area. Well equipped with a gas smeg range cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer the mill is a great place to cook, eat and relax as a family or with friends. Together with its sweeping oak staircase and mezzanine between floors it has a great airy open plan feel,

Together with its sweeping oak staircase and mezzanine between floors it has a great airy open plan feel, unusual in old buildings like this. There are lots of comfy sofas to curl up with a glass of red and a book. Thanks to underfloor heating, wood burner and huge fireplace (which takes 1m long logs!) it is warm in winter and with it's old stone walls it is lovely and cool in summer. If you get bored of watching the stars or the flames of the fire, there is an iPod stereo, a DVD player and flat screen tv and a library of English language movies to watch, although there is no cable / terrestrial tv. There is also no wifi! This is a place to get away from it all and "digital detox"! The mill is located in a very rural part of France surrounded by lots of beautiful lakes (great for summer swims), forests (great for walks and mountain biking) and beautiful medieval villages to explore

Walk and explore our 12 acres of forest, catch crayfish in the river, relax in front of the fires, light a fire outside and have a bbq.
Due to the river, and the position of the mill on the side of a hill and beside running water, we do not recommend toddlers or young children under 4 stay here. There are also some steep steps outside with long drops so please take care when walking around outside.

Basic foodstuffs (milk, eggs, bread etc) can be arranged to be at the house for your arrival.
For those staying a week or more, we can arrange for a mid-holiday clean if you wish,

There is so much to do, everything from walking, thermal baths, horse riding, swimming in the lakes, mountain biking, canoeing, visiting beautiful mediaeval villages, like Treignac.

You need a car.

There is a travel cot at the house for babies.

Chamberet

Places to visit/Things to do
Uzerche - Very pretty town - about 45 mins from the house.
In 1787, the English writer Arthur Young described the city as "The Pearl of the Limousin," nicknamed because of its picturesque setting, and a name by which it is still widely known today. Built atop a rocky outcrop, surrounded by a meander of the river Vézère which it dominates, Uzerche possesses a rich cultural heritage. First as a centre of influence and an important crossroads fortress under Pepin the Short, the city was also the seat of a powerful abbey and later a Seneschal. This legacy means that Uzerche features castles, hotels and other buildings marked by turrets [1] that were built by the uzerchoise nobility and that can still be seen today, thereby, adding weight to the saying, "He who has an Uzerche house has a castle in the Limousin"

Mont Dore
Thermal Baths - 1, Place du Panthéon, 63240 - Le Mont Dore
Walking - go to Mont Dore, and head towards Sancy (follow signs from Mont Dore - its about 15 mins drive). Puy de Sancy is the largest peak in the Avergne, and dominates the area around Mont Dore. The summit is accessible by a cable car and a short ascent, but without snow, the area just below it is visibly heavily damaged by piste building, and the erosion from huge numbers of tourists. Despite this, the views are worth the trip. If you are up to it, an excellent route to the top ascends from the "preserved valley" to the north east. The full circular route gives a full days hiking of about 14 km distance and 800 m ascent and descent. Free! (unless you take the cable car).



Oradure Sur Glane - Memorial to french resistance/abandoned town
About 1.5/2hrs away - the other side of Limoges from the house - so perhaps
spending the morning in Limoges, and eat there, then head over to Oradure for the afternoon. Address for Sat Nav is the tourist office - Place du Champ de Foire, 87520 Oradour-sur-Glane. France.

Brive La Gaillarde - Pretty town - about 1.5 hrs from the house. 
Great restaurant - La Table D'Olivier - 3 Rue Saint-Ambroise, 19100 Brive-la-Gaillarde - very small - so get there early - and call if you can to book - + 33 5 55 18 95 95
Markets - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays - from 07.30 - 12.30 - Expect lots of meat, foie gras, mushrooms etc


Eating Out
Hotel De France - in centre of Chamberet - hotel, bar and restaurant - ok food - very french/limousin - steaks potatoes etc. 15 mins from the house

Auberge Du Cantou -  About 30 minutes away, the other side of treignac - Address: Bourg 19260 Affieux - Tél.: +33 5 55 98 13 67

Chateau de Montlosier, 63970 Aydat, France

Walking &Picnic 30 mins from the mill
Mont Gargan is a peak in the Massif central, situated in the western border of the plateau de Millevaches, between Saint-Gilles-les-Forêts and Sussac in Haute-Vienne. Mont Gargan is situated in the parc naturel régional de Millevaches en Limousin. Its occitan name is puèg Gerjant and it is the subject of numerous legends.
?

Mont Gargan has an altitude of 731 metres; at the summit are the ruins of a chapel built between 1868 and 1871 by Louis Joyeux with the support of the population, and dedicated to Notre-Dame du Bon Secours. The chapel became damaged but was restored in 1992 by the Haute-Vienne general council and by the Friends of Mont Gargan. Since 1986, the chapel has been the property of the Haute-Vienne department.
The summit was at one time covered with heather and gorse, which have since given way to a prairie. A stele recalls the Second World War battle of Mont Gargan fought between the German army and the maquis resistance fighters led by Georges Guingouin.

Lake Vasseviere
One of the biggest lake in france. 42km of shoreline, There is an island in the middle, with an exhibition of modern art. Boat trips, watersports etc.
