DUE TO PROBLEMS EDITING THE SITE, THE PERIOD 30TH JUNE - 22ND JULY 2017 IS AVAILABLE.

The property became mine in February 2005. It comprises of a small cottage and several stone built barns set in two and a half acres of pasture. We have converted the old hay barn into a four bedroomed home and now our first house, the 3 bedroom Limousin cottage/gite with pool, is available for holiday or longer term rental.

I keep some chickens and have a large vegetable plot. I enjoy the outdoor life and work as a part time gardener in the summer months and do odd jobs in the Winter. 


The 3 bedroom Limousin cottage/gite accommodation comprises of a small open plan kitchen/ sitting room, dining room, a large downstairs bathroom, three bedrooms and an upstairs toilet/shower room. There is a woodburner in the living area. The house is equipped with satellite tv, DVD player. The well equipped kitchen has a fridge freezer, microwave cooker, coffee maker, washing machine, large gas cooker, essential kitchen utensils and a small safe. WIFI and direct access to the internet are both available.

Extras like washing up liquid, toilet rolls, cleaning materials, bin bags etc are included in the price of short term lets.

Having lived in the gite for a year I know it is comfortable. The woodburner warms the whole house in winter and the stone walls keep the living area cool in summer. More photographs of the property can been seen in the picture gallery.

Outside the gite there is a covered eating area with BBQ and an above ground swimming pool - 6m x 4m x 1m deep - with solar heating and a decked sunbathing area.


A cot and high chair are also available free of charge.

The Gite

DUE TO PROBLEMS EDITING THE SITE, THE PERIOD 30TH JUNE - 22ND JULY 2017 IS AVAILABLE.

The top photograph shows the 3 bedroom Limousin cottage/gite. It looks small but is surprisingly spacious with two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, a bathroom and a shower room, both with wc, a dining room and kitchen/living room.

Below this is a photograph of the gite and yard, with the stone built barn/garage on the left and the bread oven terrace to the right.

The  third picture down shows the gite on the right and our home, the renovated barn, on the left.


The Limousin Countryside

The gite is situated 500 metres above sea level and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Some photographs of the area are included in the picture gallery.


The Swimming Pool.

The pool is made 'toddler proof' by raising the steps. Prickly plants dissuade youngsters from venturing too near the terrace wall.
