Guestbook comments from the owner
"Great place to put your feet up & relax with a glass of wine....or, bike,walk,drive through the region; whatever takes your fancy. Lots to see & do in the area. The gite is comfortable and if you need more room, there is a 2 bed gite on the same property. Rachel & Jamie make you feel right at home. If you feel the need to spend some time in the big city, Limoges is only an hour away by car.

I know that I'll be back again."

We bought Le Chez in 1997 and moved here permanently in 2000. It took one man 2 years to restore the cottage, learning a lot in the process.

Tranquility. Cycling/walking tracks run directly from the property

Lovely, Welcoming gite in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5
We went to the Limousin for a short break in spring. The weather was amazing and Rachel and Jamie's gite was perfect.

Jamie and Rachel are very welcoming and helpful. Fresh logs every day and local eggs and honey if you want them. A very cosy place to stay in a lovely area well situated for convenience but also the beauty of the Limousin.

We self catered most of the time but also sample Rachel's lasagne and the family's hospitality. Food was great and we feel like we made friends too.

We will definitely be returning here at the next available opportunity.

Perfect home base to explore a tranquil region

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came here from California for our honeymoon and even though it was a bit cold for the middle of summer, we had a great time. The gite is very comfortable for a couple or young family and the wood burning stove kept us comfortable on the cold rainy days. We also enjoyed chatting with the owners who gave us a great perspective on the region and a welcome break from using our mangled French on the locals. Giloush (sp?) the wonder dog was also a fun companion and a good scout on our guided tour of the property.

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely, perfect cottage to spend peaceful time in the French countryside. Our host Rachel and James were the warmest couple ever, not to mention there adorable sons Joshua and Louis, melt my heart. We were aiming to arrive late evening and opted for "dinner with the family". The evening was a bit blustery and Rachel's homemade lasagna was absolutely wonderful and Turley hit the spot. We had a great time chatting during dinner, sharing our French adventures. The whole family is very knowledgable about the area and gave us several ideas of places to go and see, things to do. I just can't say enough....

Well on to the stone cottage..... With our bellies full we headed off to the cutest cottage ever. Jamie and Rachel have done the renovations themselves and the detail and care put into the workmanship is incredible. It is warm, cozy and inviting. The living area had a table that sat 4 easily and the kitchen is very functional. We cooked quite a few meals and the pantry had spices you could use. The cottage is heated by a wood stove and your wood box is restocked daily by Jamie. I loved the bathroom.... Beautiful bowl sink..... Copper piping holding up the shower curtain. Upstairs there is a large queen bed as well as a single. Both were comfortable.

I will defiantly be coming back here to stay in the years to come. We have made life long friends and can't wait to come back.
Oh.... They also have the most wonderful yellow lab, Galoush.

One more note.... During our visit the wisteria was in full bloom and it was absolutely breathtaking!

genieten van rust en natuur in de Creuze

  • 4 of 5
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in de verzorgde gite van Rachel en Jamie. Zonder van luxe te spreken was alles er toch voorzien om rustig en zorgeloos te kunnen genieten van de omgeving en de natuur die in het departement zo overvloedig aanwezig is. Een aanrader!

Restful holiday in Le Gite au Chez

  • 4 of 5
This beautiful part of France was ideal for our house hunting expedition. Our stay in Le Gite au Ch lived up to all expectations. The gite was beautifully clean and well equipped and the bed was so comfortable (which is one of the most important requisites on holiday). Rachel and Jamie were wonderful, informative hosts and we were made very welcome by them - nothing was too much trouble. The weather was the only thing that let us down.
