Staying at Villa Agrippa

  • 5 of 5
I can not say if I knew what to expect as this was our first ever family holiday in France, but what I can say is that everyone of us without exception thought we had stuck gold when we arrived at Villa Agrippa. Our party of 9 made full use of the heated pool, the 5 bedrooms and the bar-b-que almost every night. One of the things that will capture you is the total silence that envelopes the area especially at night. With zero light pollution and only the sound of water nearby, meant that everyone slept like logs every night. As for the house, it had everything you need from a dishwasher to a dryer, we wanted for nothing at all.
I would happily recommend this villa to any one be they in a small group or a large one like ours. The owners/caretakers are exceptionally helpful and we all felt safe/welcomed and overall happy to have been there. If you go to Villa Agrippa I feel sure if you like peace and quiet that you will love it.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely time we all had at Lartimache. It was just perfect for our family group with plenty of room in the house for the children and adults. The facilities are excellent and we loved the sheltered pool surrounded by the barn walls - also very secure with young children. The owners were most helpful and
recommended some good local restaurants and we loved exploring the woods
and country lanes. We'll definitely be back!

Thanks very much to the pez's for their kindness and felicitation for the very good customer service. Lartimache was just the perfect place to enjoy teaching the salsa to 10 persons. There were lots of the commodities (5 bathrooms, big kitchen, cheminey...) and the place is beautiful.
I recommend this property +++ and I will soon organize a new stage of salsa during a week end.

LARTIMACHE

  • 4 of 5
First impression is WOW the property is certainly unique - Decor is stunning and all bedrooms are airy and with own en-suite - ideal for big families or groups. There are swings, table tennis, some toys and the local wildlife/animals to keep the kids amused. The Donkeys live another barn which is next to the property - they are very friendly and love fruit/veg leftovers!! Location is good - It only took 45 -50 mins from Limoges airport and note that most people book Avis etc for car hire - we had cite europe booked through Holiday Autos and so walked straight in and got the keys. However everybody else was queuing for the main car operators - so if you do go with them - get your luggage and exit quickly to pick it up otherwise you could be hanging around for a while..........
A 20 min walk from lartimache approx 2 kms to local village and chez jules bar - no english spoken but seemed friendly.If you leave the property entrance and go left towards the big oak lake, keep going for 1/2 mile and you will find a lily pond full of singing frogs - our kids loved it. Also not far (1/2 hour) from Lake Estephe - absolutely beautiful spot with beach play park cafe restaurant etc; all clean and well maintained - we spent many days here.
In all we saw; Deer,buzzards,hawks,lizards,frogs,fox.rabbit all locally so keep your eyes peeled.
The only 2 major drawbacks of this property were; the pool is not heated and as it is housed on the upstairs floor within the barn walls - it was very cold. We were here end May and even with some sun on it all day, the water was just bearable.
The other one is the washing facilities - it is an old drum machine and doesn't work very well - we had mixed weather and by the 2nd week were struggling - It would have been a god send if we had had a tumble dryer as well!
Having said that - this are small niggles and we still had a fabulous holiday, and would return again.

Villa Agrippa is situated in the tiny hamlet of Lartimache just 2.5 km from La Chapelle Montbrandeix on the borders of Dordogne and Haute Vienne in the Perigord Limousin National Park - an unspoilt region of rolling wooded countryside interspersed with numerous rivers and leisure lakes.

Local shopping is at Cussac and St Mathieu with the larger centres of Limoges, Angouleme and Perigueux all within an hours drive. Lively markets are held each week at nearby Piegut and Nontron, and there is an excellent choice of local restaurants to suit every budget. - 'Chez Jules' just 5 mins away and 'Hostellerie St Jacques', a gourmet's feast to rival any top London restaurant, a 15 minute drive. The beautiful town of Brantome, the little Venice of France, is a 30 min drive and after exploring the market here you can hire a canoe for a trip down the River Dronne.

Other Activities: Canoeing and kayaking on local lakes or on the rivers at Brantome or Aixe sur Vienne. Fishing in the owner's private 4 Ha lake just 3 km away (carp, tench, gudgeon).

Golf: Golf de la Preze at Montbron is a very interesting course just 30 mins away - www.golfdelapreze.com
