BEAUTIFUL FRENCH GITES SET IN MAGNIFICENT SURROUNDINGS

Ambazac House Rental Photos and Description

Well equiped Self catering gites with pool, tennis court ,garden & b-b-q.

La Bourdalaine is a small hamlet set in the heart of the Ambazac Hills about 15k north of Limoges. The hamlet is set in 7.5 acres of the most beautiful & romantic woodlands on the side of a hill that goes down to a small river. In spring you can see all the the trout & salmon swimming upstream. There are 2 gites both of which are completely individual. The Mill House is stunning and is set half way up the hill looking down over the river and woodland beyond. Hooper House is a really beautiful gite with three bedroom all en suite a large kitchen diner and a living room. It is set next to the main house and has a truly wonderful outside space in the middle of all the woodlands of Bourdalaine. If you are having bar-b-ques in the evenings it is a good time to spot the deer grazing. Both gites are within easy access to the pool but secluded enough not here noise from it. We have been told that it is the best pool in the Limousin outside of public ones. This is self catering holiday heaven.

Walking & Mountain Biking: The Ambazac Hills are ideal for both walking and mountain biking, both of which you can do from the front door without ever stepping into a car. For those of you that just want a gentle stroll there are plenty of country walks through the woods and around Lake Jonas, but if you are a little bit more active you can take off into the hills for a good days hiking or mountain biking. We have 10 mountain bikes on site for all age groups and these are free for you to use while on your holiday.

Horse Riding & Swimming: St. Pardoux

A water sports heaven!

Close to Saint Pardoux is the lake of the same name, which is one of the largest and best loved leisure lakes in the region. If you enjoy water sports there can be no better place than this… you can choose from sailing, kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, water-skiing and swimming! For the less energetic there are lovely safe beaches around the lake where you can enjoy the sunshine and unpolluted air.

Muret.

Muret is a large country club with a magnificent riding center, tennis squash , bar & restaurant. It is set in the most beautiful countryside and is an ideal place for a family day out. You can arrange for a horse riding lesson or for the more experienced, book a full days guided trekking.

Fishing: If you want to while away the hours fishing while your family are enjoying the pool at La Bourdalaine, this is surely the place for you. We are surrounded by stunning lakes that are teeming with fish and it quite easy to get either a day or weekly pass from a number of places in and around Ambazac. Lake Jonas, which is a five minute walk from us, is one that comes to mind. It is a beautiful lake to fish and has a variety of fish in it. We have seen huge carp jumping out of the water for flies.

The Mill House is a typical French property which has been updated in recent years. It has three double bedrooms a bathroom and separate shower & toilet.

FANTASTIC AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE OF FRANCE

  • 5 of 5
We, a family with 4 children, stayed in the Mill House during the first two weeks in July 2010. We could not recommend this property and the site highly enough. The house is full of traditional charm, well equipped and very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed eating out in the shade under the solid and large gazebo in the private garden area to the front of the house. The sound of running water from the stream to the mill wheel is very relaxing.
The pool is splendid, larger than you would expect and very well kept.
the owners are on site, Andy and Louise. They are the perfect hosts, balancing the sometimes conflicting demands of being attentive whilst giving privacy and space. We would all like to thank them for a perfect holiday in perfect surroundings. Every time we arrived back from a day out, we immediately became relaxed as the house and its surroundings are so peaceful.
Weather was also beautiful when we were there which was a great bonus.
We would not hesitate to go back at some time of the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It is so nice to know that we have helped to make your holiday a good one because we know it is always difficult when you have children of different ages to please and keep entertained. It was nice for us to hear everybody in the pool enjoying themselves (some to much Susie, hope the back is ok now) and generally to know that the children could come and go as they pleased and be safe. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you all again sometime in the future.

Ambazac is a small village about 15k north of Limoges. Limoges is the capital city of the Limousin area and is famous for its pottery & beautiful china. Limoges has a history dating back some 2000 years and there are many sites to see while you are here, the St Etiene cathedral being just one them. There are many bars and restaurants all over the city and hundreds of individual shops (no chains) that make it a joy to explore. After a busy days sight seeing and shopping in Limoges you will return to Ambazac & La Bourdaine. Ambazac is small village but has everything you need on a day to day basis. There are two very good supermarkets and several excellent bakers. There are a couple of bars and a really nice restaurant. Once back at Bourdaline you can totally relax and unwind. It is a truly stunning place set in seven and half acres of woodland with our own small lake. if things are quiet in the evening, it is not unusual to see the deer grazing in the field by pool.
