Chabrenas - definitely one of the best !

  • 5 of 5
The Chabrenas farmhouse was a perfect holiday spot for us. The area was very beautiful and we had great weather. The farmhouse itself is set in a very lovely private courtyard, which the hosts have made exceptionally pretty with beautifully maintained gardens and flowering containers in abundance. The lovely gardens really added to our enjoyment of the place; lovely to walk around in the cool evening or sit out at one of the pretty patios with a morning cup of tea. The farmhouse is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Lovely bathrooms and everything was VERY clean. the hosts have provided lots of thoughtful extra touches ...they provided a printout of the upcoming weather forecast which was very useful and were very charming and helpful with information about the locality. We have stayed in other villas in Europe where we never met our hosts and where you got the impression the hosts had furnished it with their cast-offs and expected guests to break everything (no ornaments of any kind and pretty spartan furnishings)...so Chabrenas was a delightful and very welcome contrast to that. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of crockery, glasses and cookware. There were lots of books, games and maps and files of information on places to go, where to eat, shop and sights to see. The pool was particuarly nice, surrounded by lovely flowerpots and super views of the countryside, again very clean and well maintained, a good size and pleasing temperature, with lots of loungers and umbrellas for shade. Jenny and David obviously go to a lot of trouble to ensure everything is perfect for their guests...and it certainly was for us. We would thoroughly recommend Chabrenas to anyone...you would certainly not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: The time our guests have on holiday is very precious, so we try to make Chabrenas as enjoyable a place to come as possible and one that feels a bit like 'home from home'

A peaceful and charming retreat

  • 5 of 5
A peaceful and charming retreat for our family of 6 in their 50's and 60's at Chabrenas. The house and swimming pool are immaculate; Jenny and David are fantastic, discreet and efficient owners always respecting our privacy; on the site though, which is fabulous, because always available to help and make our stay enjoyable. The house is large enough for a big family where everyone can find a spot to enjoy the English charming decoration touch in this typically French-styled farm, and the pool is wonderful when the sun shines. Life is beautiful at Chabrenas!

Chabrenas Farmhouse - the perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5
This summer we spent the most relaxing two weeks we’ve ever had on holiday when we stayed at Chabrenas. We have rented many villas, farmhouses etc in France over the years but never quite found the one that ticked ALL the boxes, until now. Cleanliness is very important for us and Chabrenas scores very highly in this area. David & Jenny obviously work very hard on change-over day to ensure their beautiful farmhouse remains spotless (...and just for those few out there who may appreciate the importance of this.... not a single spider in two weeks..!! bliss). The pool and it’s surroundings were superb – cleaned every morning by the time we had breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for David & Jenny yet they were very discreet. Fresh linen provided regularly. Updated weather reports waiting for us on the front door every morning. The lounge was a popular area for relaxing in complete comfort with a book or watching a film – a very comfortable sofa and armchairs and a decent sized television. You won’t be short of a book to read or a game to play. We spent many evenings dining round the large wooden table situated in the very well equipped kitchen. There are three other well kept outdoor dining areas - we loved having breakfast under the beautiful gazebo. The gardens are beautifully maintained – private and very quiet.

You really would be hard pushed not to relax at Chabrenas. We have already recommended this villa to friends and family and very much hope to return at some point in the future – even our teenage daughters didn't want to leave! Chabrenas and it's hosts, David & Jenny, have left a lasting impression on us and we are very grateful to them for going that extra mile and making it a special place to holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a wonderful review. Cleanliness is probably one of the things we count most important as the last thing you want to do when you arrive somewhere on holiday - is to have to start cleaning before you can relax. So glad we have hopefully ticked that box! We just want our guests to enjoy their time away and relax from the moment they arrive.

Wonderul house and peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5
I can't speak highly enough of the quality of the accommodation and David and Jenny's hospitality. We've been travelling independently to France for almost 20 years and this was one of our very best experiences. The house was spacious, fantastically equipped and very clean, the pool and the grounds were a delight. Everything you need for a relaxing break.

Owner's Response: What can we say - just so so glad you all went home feeling relaxed and enjoyed your time at Chabrenas. That is our aim to give you a real holiday - away from anything that is normal everyday life!

A lovely place with a very warm welcome!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 in their 50's and 4 in their 20's plus two dogs found a beautiful rural retreat at Chabrenas. The rooms and facilities are first class, and the owners, Jenny and David couldn't do enough to help make our stay enjoyable. This included leading the way to the vets for the dogs' required treatments and staying with us whilst it was done so that we didn't have any problem with the French speaking vet. Certainly above and beyond the call of duty! Despite poor weather, we had a lovely time and the pool is wonderful when the sun shines. The local village has a brilliant boulangerie so we had fresh bread and pastries every morning! The living room is homely (as is the whole house) and had plenty of room for 7 adults and 2 dogs - essential given the unusually wet weather. The dogs were made very welcome too - unusual we find, even when it says 'dogs welcome'. All in all we can thoroughly recommend it.

As Good as It Looks and Sounds!

  • 5 of 5
Eight of us have just returned from two superb weeks at Chabrenas. The house comfortably sleeps eight adults in four bedrooms (two doubles, two singles and two bathrooms) and both the lounge and farmhouse kitchen are very spacious.

David and Jenny are very kind and welcoming hosts who go out of their way to make sure everything is right. They are very responsive to any requests as well as a fount of local information.

Because the farmhouse is where the owners live during the winter, it is equipped as a home rather than a holiday house. There is every conceivable piece of kitchen equipment and the appliances are top quality. The lounge has armchairs and a sofa to seat seven (our 18 year old got the footstool). There is a large TV with Sky for UK channels as well as French satellite and a DVD player. The bathrooms are lovely and all towels are provided.

The pool is very large for a holiday property - 10 metres by five metres - and the pool furniture is very good indeed. The pool area is lovely and David maintains the pool and area very carefully. There is a table tennis table (which got good use from us) and plenty of other games equipment to enjoy in the gardens.

We were blessed with fine weather throughout our stay but the house would have provided a peaceful haven anyway.

The local area is unspoilt rural France to the north of the Dordogne and is ideal for those looking for peace and quiet as a group. It is not a traditional tourist area. There is plenty to see and do but the area does not brim with conventional tourist attractions. A car is essential for getting about - we needed two.

Thank you, David and Jenny, for facilitating such a lovely family holiday for us. We would certainly book again.

Chabrenas is situated in the beautiful countryside of the Haute Vienne Department of Limousin. It is ideally situated close to the main A20 Autoroute (10 mins) if you wish to travel quickly to the attractions of the area. However, if you prefer you can take gentle drives down country lanes and wend your way to visit local chateaux, such as Coussac Bonneval, still inhabited by the Marquis de Bonneval, or follow the route of 'Richard the Lionheart', stop and sample food and wine in some of the prettiest villages in France such as Segur le Chateau, Montemart, St Robert, Collonges la Rouge and Turenne, or relax by one of the many swimming lakes in the area. Wend a little further and visit the unique sights of Sarlat-la-Caneda, Rocamadour or Cirq Lapopie, a few of the picturesque villages that make up the Dordogne and Lot Valleys.

Other Activities: Historic monuments and sites and chateaux

Golf: Several golf courses are within travelling distance. Limoges being the nearest having two courses, Golf de la Porcelaine at Panazol is an excellent course and can be recommended. The Limoges Municipal Course being the other. Aubazine: a 9 hole/ par 28 and 18 hole/par 70 course. Brive an 18 hole/par 71 course. Course near Souillac an 18 hole/par 72 course. Saint Cere a 9 hole course near the Chateau de Montal. Also courses at Neuvic, St Junien and Peyrelevade
