Location description from owner

The Limousin region

This huge French "departement" covers too much area to explore in one holiday. So I'm pleased to say the Correze/ Lot border is the most southern and interesting part, containing many famous Chateaux, Caves with paintings and spectacular natural features, and the great Dordogne river system below the dams, from Argentat, all the way to Sarlat. It's the best Kayaking because rapids and tributaries punctuate this most diverse section. You can choose the more leisurely section from Martel if preferred. One tributary leads you to the monastery and medieval village at Rocamadour, set in its' own precipitous gorge. Along with the Gouffre de Padirac, it is one of the finest tourist sites in France. The Gouffre invites you to punt half a mile along an underground river, then walk to a cave 900ft high. You won't be disappointed, it really is awesome! There is horse riding 5 mins away at "Ranch de Chadenac". Each week of summer there are village fetes of every description.Our nearest wine producer, nearest village in fact, is "Milles et un Pierres" at Branceilles.We are also on the "route de la noix", as in Walnut orchards. Vin de noix, walnut cake, and walnut oil for salad dressing, are all sold locally, and crushed dried walnuts are also added to delicious Quercy, warm goats cheese salads, a commonly found starter on menus.We have 24 mature trees on our parkland. The nuts can be collected throughout October when they fall. We also have some fruit trees, as well as oak, acacia, conifers and mixed woodland. There is a stream fed pond, and a great effort is made to maintain wild flower meadows. Last year, among the huge flourishes of colour, we were delighted to see great numbers of "orchids". At least 4 varieties abound. May and June are good months to see Blossom and flowers. April/ May for nesting birds.You may wish you chose to stay for 2 weeks, there is so much to do, and the weather is amazing, the nights being surprisingly warm, allowing you to imbibe late into the evening with your friends under the starry skies.

Meyssac

After 2 successful seasons, we are confident that you will find everything you need here for adults & children to enjoy a varied & interesting break. The photos give a good idea of our natural setting, lovely climate & modern facilities. See also the reviews from 2014, below. There are many chateaux on the Dordogne as well as Kayaking,( the best way to see it!) or the more leisurely river trips on a “Gabare” (Converted sailing barge). Visit Rocamadour, the monastery town in a gorge or Gouffre de Padirac, an underground river leading to an enormous cave. Some caves have neolithic cave paintings. Each day you can enjoy elegant French food that the locals take for granted, and it's not expensive. And of course plenty of sunshine. To cool off there are lake beaches "Lac de Lissac", The “Dordogne” at Beaulieu, or the huge open air pool "La Saule". "Walnut farm" gives you that precious tranquility of long evenings & amazing night skies when your exploring is done. The property sits in the quiet hamlet of "Limes". It has not been worked since the 1980's. The present owner has restored, not only 3 of the 4 stone buildings, but vigorously improved the land, with wildlife and wild flower meadows at the heart of the project. Much of the land is being prepared for grazing in the form of 2 or 3 donkeys. Chestnut fence posts and a 5 bar gate enclose large areas of excellent grassland.The nearest shops, market, garage and pool can be found at Meyssac, a 10min drive from the farm. Meyssac is next to Collonges La Rouge. Both are charming medieval villages with red sandstone buildings and turreted roofs, Collonges, in particular has a good variety of restaurants. Meyssac has "our local", a bar called "Chez Gilles", where you will find the same casual kindness they have been providing for the past 20 years!Brive la Gaillarde, the closest small city, is 20mins drive away. A very attractive city with it's centre based around the cathedral of St Martin. Lovely shopping, classy restaurants. A drive in any direction will reveal stunning villages like Collonges la Rouge, Turenne, Curemonte, Floirac or Beaulieu sur Dordogne where you can walk by the river and pass a little time at a relaxing brasserie, swim or take a barge boat trip.
