Our converted barn is located in the Haute Vienne which is part of the famous Limousin region of central France. It offers the relaxation you need with self catering accommodation and is the ideal place to forget about stress and to unwind.
Gite in France
The gite comprises: living area, a kitchen area, bathroom with shower and bedroom above on a wooden dais. The large French windows leading to the outside give the gite a light and airy feel.
Our converted barn can sleep 2 adults comfortably and there is also a fold up bed to sleep a child/teenager.
If, for any reason, the use of the fold up bed is required, there is an additional one off fee of £10.00.
Please note: there is only english speaking TV available.
There is ample garden for children to play, with no traffic worries and plenty of opportunities for exploration. There is also a table for outdoor dining.
It is ideally located for walking, cycling and exploring the local flora and fauna.
Interaction with guests
You will be free to enjoy your holiday without interference. We are on hand to offer advice and help should you need it.
Other things to note
There are two lakes in the vicinity:
the lake at Videix and the lake by St. Mathieu.
Nestled in woodland and fed by the river Colle the lake near St. Mathieu offers all the traditional amenities; toilets, showers and of course a man-made beach. (Closed for 2017, should be open again for 2018)
Fed by the Charente river and much bigger than the lake at St. Mathieu, the lake at Videix also offers sun bathing and swimming facilities. It is approx. 8 km (5 miles) from our gite.
Set on a plateau, the lake is more open and therefore also has sailing facilities.
There is, of course, a man made beach with shower and toilet facilities and a bar offering refreshments and snacks.
We welcome well behaved dogs, but please do not smoke inside the house. Please clean the house before you leave and don't forget to take all your belongings! Sort your waste according to the usual recycling rules and dispose in the bins provided.
Please park your car ON the grass. The small track in front of the house is public right of way and the farmer uses it from time to time (once in a blue moon!).
