At home on holidays

  • 5 of 5
Paul and Susan went out of their way to look after us. Their communication was great and on arrival we were warmly welcomed. We quickly felt at home and had everything we needed to enjoy our brief stay. Our children asked if they could spend one whole day here and not go anywhere. They loved the log fire, the board games and Zac the dog. Thank you for providing such a homely place to stay. So comfortable and warmly decorated, we had a very relaxing time.

Superb gite

Beautifully appointed gite in rural surroundings; ideal for relaxing, walking or sightseeing. Paul and Susan are discrete hosts but available for advice and a chat about the surrounding area. Good amenities in nearby Meyssac.

Rural Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
A most beautiful setting; tranquil, quiet and relaxing.
The landscape and sunsets are stunning; the gite is spacious, very well equipped, very clean and comfortable.
If you like walking just start from the front door, there are marked walks everywhere.
The hosts Paul and Susan are helpful and friendly, but never intruding.
Would love to come back one day.

Fantastic Gite to spend Christmas at.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed over the Christmas week and it was absolutely magical. Log fire, electric blankets, dvd's - even decorations - we could have just hibernated indoors for the whole week! But we managed to tear ourselves away and wandered around the colourful market at Brive, choosing all the food for our Xmas dinner, which we cooked in the excellent kitchen back at the house.
Paul and Susan were on hand to provide local advice on where to go and what to see, and even in the depths of winter there was plenty to see - especially all the wonderful medieval villages around the area. No it didn't snow, but there were beautiful frosty mornings to wake up to, and the sky at night was stunning, no light pollution anywhere. This is the place to be when you want to get away from all the commercialism of Christmas back home.
Jackie and Gary Ormandy.

Second visit - still fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We came back to the area for a second time in just a few months and were welcomed by Paul and Sue as old friends! As before, a very confortable and tranquil visit. We got to know Zac (the dog) and the chickens a little better this time. A real gem of a location for a complete getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. Perfect as a central base for touring this wonderful region. We'll be back!
