Location description from owner

The Limousin region

Located on the Haute Vienne/Dordogne/Charente borders, and the famous 'Richard the Lionheart Route', this beautiful rural region is rich in historic sites, attractions and activities.There are many large lakes, numerous châteaux, quaint villages and larger historical towns and cities to explore. Throughout the year there are many markets and fetes to visit with night markets in St Mathieu.The surrounding region offers the best that nature can give, from the contrasting seasons, to the abundance of wildlife, fresh air, and the peace and quiet still found in rural France. The nearby lakes at Videix 6km, Massignac 7km, and St.Mathieu 7km have sandy beaches, safe swimming, boating and wind surfing. This part of the Haute-Vienne is also a protected area due to it being situated within the boundaries of the Perigord-Limousin Natural Park, and so for walkers, cyclists, artists, fishermen and bird watchers, it's quite simply breathtaking.If you are looking for a lovely restaurant with scrummy food then we recommend the L'Auberge du Presbytere at Saint Barthelemy.

Les Salles Lavauguyon

St Mathieu has many local amenities including a large well equipped supermarket, restaurants/bars, newsagent/tobacconist, two bakeries, pharmacy, post office and a bank!Les Salles Lavauguyon is situated in rural south west France, between the two cities of Angouleme to the west and Limoges to the east. This small tranquil village can be found nestling within the Haute-Vienne region of the Limousin, and on the perimeter of the 'Pays de la Meteorite', where 200 million years previously, the landscape had been created by the impact of a huge meteorite. Les Salles Lavauguyon and it's two neighbouring hamlets of Lavauguyon and Raverlat, together form the 'Circuit of devotion' where you will find natural springs that rise within their midst, and which from Celtic times are said to have healing properties. Centuries old folklore still exist today, and both Water Diviners and Healers can still be found practicing their crafts with some amazing results. It's within this circuit that evidence of our ancestors from the Neolithic and Roman periods can still be found. In addition to the church and priory, the remains of a ruined 12th century castle still stands. Originally built on a medieval fort signs of it's destruction after the revolution in 1789 can be found within the hamlets in the shape of granite stones and ornate masonry within the walls, windows and doorways of old farmhouses and barns, but now after decades of neglect, a brave effort is under way in an attempt to rescue it from total oblivion.

“First class luxury in a rural setting”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

The barn at Ravelat provided our extended family group with all the comforts of home and more! High standard facilities inside and out and roomy accommodation made it perfect for our range of needs. A car is essential as the setting is rural. Shops and large towns are some distance. We were unfortunate in that the local bakers closed for a fortnight during the week we were there! However, the owners have supplied plenty of indoor and outdoor play equipment, which together with the pool, provide plenty of entertainment for a family group. The pool is solar heated, which is a point to bear in mind if using the barn out of high season...we were most unfortunate with the weather this year! Weather aside, this was the best self catering accommodation we have ever had - home or abroad.

“Fantastic Walks .............”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2013

A lovely area to spend a very relaxing holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed exploring the small hamlet and the walks in the surrounding areas. Even tried speaking to the locals in my school girl french. They politely said I was very good ... their English being a lot better than my French. Loved the meteor that is next to the pond too. Our favourite walk was down to Les salles lavauguyon (hope that's spelt right!). Turned right out of the barn and then right again down a narrow farm track. This took us passed a few fishing ponds with great views of the area and then on to Les salles lavauguyon where there is a fantastic medieval church with ancient frescos. Bought picnic supplies from the local shop and bakery and sat in the village admiring the area. A short drive away there are a couple of Lakes (the french call them beaches) to visit where you can swim and hire boats. Loved listening to the birds in the morning with the bedroom windows opened wide. Will hopefully be back again in Sept/Oct for our cheese and wine fix!!
