Meuzac Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2/3

Discover this wonderful unspoilt area of France from the comfort of this delightful little cottage. La Petite Chabrenas is situated in a small hamlet surrounded by woods and meadows and is found ‘down the end of the lane’, providing a tranquil base from which to explore. Relaxing drives take you along lazy rivers to chateaux, picturesque market towns, lakes with swimming beaches or the ancient Cities of Limoges and Brive, as well as the Vezere, Lot and Dordogne valleys. This pretty little self contained cottage and garden allow you to experience the quiet and peaceful setting of Chabrenas. A perfect base for a holiday in France.

Exploring the Countryside: There are local swimming lakes at Meuzac, St Germain les Belles and St. Yrieix la Perche with beaches and small restaurants/snack bars. Short walks can be taken within the bounds of the property and there are plenty of longer signposted walks or cycle rides around the locality. The Vezere, Lot and Dordogne valleys are all within easy travelling distance with their stunning views and pretty villages including Rocamadour, Collonge La Rouge, Cirq Lapopie and many others

Culture / Places of Interest : Chabrenas is close to the cultural areas of Limoges (30 km) and Brive (50 km) both of which have cathedrals, many shops, museums, theatres and plenty of local history. Many summer festivals, classical concerts are held in local towns in July and August. Horse racing is held every Wednesday and some weekends during July/August/September in Arnac Pompadour. There are many chateaux to visit including our local Coussac Bonneval (8 km) also La Grenerie, Hautefort, Arnac Pompadour, Jummillac le Grand and a bit futher afield Turenne, Castlenau & Montal. Lubersac, Arnac Pompadour and St Yrieix are market towns on the route of “Richard the Lionheart”, all within 10/15 minutes drive and all have shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Oradour sur Glane is also just northwest of Limoges and this village was the scene of a 2nd World War massacre by the Nazis. Spectacular caves can be seen at Grotte de Roc, Goffre de Padirac and the cave paintings of Grotte de Lascaux.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For two weeks we stayed in Le Petit Chabrenas and had a lovely time. The house is more than comfortable. For someone who likes to cook and prepare dinner themselves the many kitchen utensils and the amount of (very nice) crockery are wonderful. The bed was good, the garden spacious and private (there are trees to hang your hammock!). We made a few longer walks in the surroundings and enjoyed the quiet and beautiful scenery. Do not expect touristic excitement near by. If you love to be away from the madding crowd, this is your gite!

A Treemendous Stay!

  • 5 of 5
What an absolute delight! Jenny and David most accommodating, friendly and humorous. The location is quiet, the cottage superb and the weather forecast stuck to the window each morning was a great help! The Limousin area reminded us of our home county of Derbyshire and the way of life is idyllic. Reminded us of how England used to be and - quite frankly - how it still should be!
Got to go again soon! And no the spelling in the title is not a mistake - its intentional! Jenny and David will explain when you arrive! Please go, you won't be disappointed!

Charming, cozy and romantic!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful property was listed very accurately regarding location, layout and amenities. Every amenity you could ask for was provided. Petite Chabrenas was decorated in very good taste, very clean and felt like a brand new property with lots of old character built into it! Dave and Jenny were the perfect hosts providing excellent information for the markets, shopping, sightseeing, for surrounding areas. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace, the excellent markets, porcelain shops, picnic at lakes and rivers, touring Limoges and the countryside, and the nearby chateau. Dave & Jenny made our wonderful week in Chabrenas such a pleasure. They were such a joy to become acquainted with that we feel like we found some new friends!! We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and relatives. We can't wait to return again!!!

perfect

  • 5 of 5
we spent a fortnight in this beautiful cottage and can honestly say it was perfect, a lovely quiet location just right for a relaxing break but within easy reach of plenty of places to visit. the private garden was a lovely place to sit and relax in the sun (usually with a nice glass of French wine!) after a days sightseeing. David and Jenny are fantastic hosts, friendly and helpful without being intrusive and the cottage has everything you could need, literally a home from home. We cannot recommend Le Petite Chabrenas highly enough - everyone should visit at least once!
thank you David and Jenny for helping us have such a wonderful holiday.

A Walkers Delight

  • 5 of 5
This is my forth visit to Le Petite Chabrenas and congratulations to David & Jenny for maintaining such high standards both in the cottage with its well equipped kitchen and bathroom and in the attached and private garden where you can relax on a sunny day either in the sun loungers or under the sun shade enjoying a meal or a drink. This is a real gem in a most beautiful and quiet part of France and I can highly recommend a stay. Others have commented on the local villages, towns, restaurants and swimming in the lakes'. For me Petite Chabrenas represents peace and quiet plus magnificent walks enjoyed in particular by Hettie our black Labrador. What you see in the photos is what you get plus more and we hope to return once again next year. Thank you David & Jenny. John, Barbara & Hettie.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
An idyllic place to stay. We chose Petite Chabrenas because we were so taken with the location and the photographs of the cottage. Little did we know just how perfect it was. The cottage wants for nothing, there is every kitchen accessory you could want and all the crockery, bedding and furnishings are first class. Jenny and David are a lovely couple who were always there if we needed them and who obviously take pride in all that they do. We can't wait to go back and visit and would recommend Jenny and David's properties without hesitation.

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: Flying, Historic monuments and sites and chateaux

Golf: Nine Golf courses are within easy travelling distance. Limoges being the nearest having two courses, Golf de la Porcelaine at Panazol 18 hole/par 72 and Golf de Limoges Saint-Lazare, 18 hole/par 72. Golf du Coiroux at Aubazine 18 hole/par 70 course.
