Holiday Rental House
Set inside the bounds of the beautiful Perigord national park.Our former barn has been completely renovated into a high specification holiday home in the Limousin region of France. Ideally based for the airport, rail station and city of Limoges (20 Minutes away) as well as north/south bound 'Route Nationale', our holiday cottage sits across a wide courtyard from our main farm house BnB. The cottage is close enough that guests can be assured we able to provide any advice or help if needed, yet not so close as to feel overlooked. There is a small front garden with seating for 2 where you can sit with your morning coffee and watch the sun rise while at the same time, your other guests can be enjoying and early morning dip in the hot tub..

Outstanding gite in a fascinating setting. Bianka and Darren make you feel very welcome. The whole place is very much a 'work in progress' but that makes it much more interesting. Very much a place for animal lovers.

Thanks guys. Was a pleasure to have you here. I've set aside your unused logs for next time. We ate the cheese dorritos though. 'Not bad! From Graham that's as good as the TA certificate of excellence... Good luck with the search.

About the neighbourhood
A truly rural location but in easy reach of supermarkets, restaurants and other amenities. If you like your history, then almost on our door step is the remains of a templar knights stronghold. Just 5km away is the castle where Richard the lion heart met his end, and of course we have oradour-sur-glane. For children of all ages, we have a go-cart circuit just 5 mins away as well as several swimming lakes, a go-ape style adventure park, fishing, and miles of fantastic walking and cycle paths.
Getting around
We're just off the N21 so very handy for traveling north to England or south to Spain. Bus stops to limoges (north) chalus (south) are within walking distance.
