Bourganeuf Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This is an ideal place to stay if you enjoy both sightseeing in towns and villages, swimming and relaxing on the beaches at nearby lakes, and quiet countryside walks. It's also an ideal base if you are house hunting in the area.

La Bo Bo is a beautifully renovated stone cottage which sleeps four people in one double bedroom, and one twin bedroom. We offer changeovers, so if you plan to stay 2 or more weeks we will make sure the cottage is cleaned with fresh bedding.

You'll be able to enjoy sitting out on the raised patio in the evening, watching the sun setting with a couple of glasses of wine.

You can also get there by Eurotunnel then drive down to La Creuse, the drive can be approx. 7-8 hours e.g. Calais to the house. Or by ferry, which you can check out by going to 'Direct Ferries' web site.

Small lakes for swimming (Vigon, near Vige), St. Junien-le-Bergere (on the way to Peyrat-le-Chateau). What a place!' 2012

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time at La Bo Bo. The village is beautiful, set in wooded valleys with fantastic views from the terrace above the house. We sat out every evening watching the sunset and listening to the wildlife with a glass of wine or two. the house is really comfy and well equipped; it felt like home straight away. There was lashings of hot water and even Cbeebies on TV for our 4 year old. We found fresh raspberries, wild strawberries and cherries growing nearby and there's even drinkable spring water bubbling from the hillside nearby. Bourganeuf is a pretty market town 15 mins away with a Carrefour for food supplies. The region is beautiful and the deserted winding wooded roads just go on and on in every direction. A clean green landscape unspoilt by mass tourism and crowds. We loved it and will be back!

Fantastic Tranquil holiday great facilities

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic retreat.

The owners extremely helpful and approachable and communication was excellent.

The directions to La Bo Bo were spot on and our SatNav took us right to the door.
We went via EuroTunnel and would highly recommend.

Our welcome pack included Cheese and wine, a great touch!

The area is very peaceful and tranquil.

The house is just fabulous and all facilities all you could ask for comfort away from home, Great cooking facilities and log burning fire, a comfy bed - what more could you want . I would highly recommend.
The bath and constant hot water - bliss after a day out.

Surrounding areas and villages including Limoges are not too far away and we would recommend a visit to St Leonard de Noblat some great restaurants and quaint shops.

All in all a great time was had by the whole family.

We would go back again so I think that speaks for itself.

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
La Bo Bo is the perfect holiday retreat if you like peace and quiet. The house is comfortable (though the stairs to the bedrooms might be difficult for the elderly and infirm as they're quite steep). The surrounding countryside is magnificent, as are the little villages and larger towns. Restaurants are plentiful and excellent. We especially liked the one belonging to the golf course just past Bourganeuf, on the way to Portarion(?) - really friendly and excellent food at reasonable prices (why do we put up with such poor quality of food and service in Britain?) All-in-all, I couldn't recommend La Bo Bo and Limousin highly enough. Go - you won't regret it!

Owner's Response: Thank you James
I think that gives people a really good view of the place. As you say the stairs to the main bedroom are quite steep, we let people know on our booking form about this and the stairs to the twin are probably normal gradient! Many thanks again for taking the time to provide useful feedback. Rebecca & Bill

An Idyllic Haven

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful setting for this fabulous character cottage. It is extremely well equipped with lashings of very hot water. We were absolutely delighted and very grateful for the provision of wine and basics waiting for us on the kitchen table and in the fridge. The decking terrace is a superb sun trap, ideal for enjoying a glass of wine or two under a sun drenched sky whilst reading the latest novel in absolute peace and tranquillity. The surrounding undulating countyside is magnificent with many interesting places to visit within an easy drive on quiet roads.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and both left feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. We would definitely recommend La BoBo to family and friends.
