Nestled into the tranquil landscape, this is a high-quality gite ideal for two (but with capacity for four) at the gateway to the Monts et Barrages and Millevaches Regional Park.
This building (originally a piggery and bread oven) has all the character one would expect (but the pigs have been evicted !) Wood beams and stone walls are mixed with the comfort of modern conveniences to provide a comfortable retreat from the pressures of modern life.
Please note that as there is no fenced garden area, this property is not suitable for either pets or small children.
Looking for a relaxing laid-back break or a more energetic holiday ? This is the perfect hide-away from which to explore this beautiful part of France!
The accommodation comprises one bedroom (double bed) with radio/CD player, bathroom (with a large shower cabin), and an open-plan sitting-room/kitchen. A comfortable sofa-bed (double) provides the sleeping arrangement for the third and fourth guests. The kitchen is fitted with a quality cooker, microwave and washing machine. A TV/DVD is provided (with a selection of DVDs) and access to the owners book library is given for the duration of your stay.
Please be aware that in order for any additional guests sleeping on the sofa bed to get to the bathroom it is necessary to pass through the bedroom. If it is suitable we can offer an upgrade to a double guest bedroom with use of a shared bathroom in the house. This is accessed independently via the vegetable garden & into the library - which can also be used as a secondary sitting room!
The gite is available for rent all year, and if you decide to come and experience the Limousin in low or mid-season we can assure your warmth and comfort. The bathroom is equipped with an electric heater that fills the room with warm air in a very short time. The main body of the gite is heated by means of a wood burner in the sitting room. - a daily allowance of wood is charged at the nominal rate of 20.00 Euros per week from October to March inclusive. We also provide an electric blanket for the bed!
Outside there is a small private garden area with terrace, seating and barbeque situated to make the most of daylong sunshine (sunshine not guaranteed, of course - but we'll put in a request!!), and an 'above ground' swimming pool (approximately 24 x 12 foot) next to the terrace is also available for the guests.
The overall property is set in a private garden of over an acre which includes a small organic garden, and produce will be available to guests depending on the season and how successful we are with the veggies and fruit! Our own corn-fed chickens will be happy to provide your breakfast eggs for a small charge - although they also seem to have a 'season' for egg production so as long as they are laying!
