Overview

Le Monteil-au-Vicomte House Rental Photos and Description

4 Double Bedroomed Spacious Property With Garden, 20mins From Lac De Vassiviere

Situated in Chatain, a small hamlet surrounded by picturesque countryside in the heart of the Limousin, this French family home retains much of its traditional style whilst offering the comfort of modern amenities. Recently renovated throughout, the property offers 4 spacious double bedrooms, bathroom with shower, second toilet, dining room, lounge and a fully equipped kitchen. The pretty village of Royere de Vassiviere is just 3km away with restaurant, bar, supermarket, baker, butcher, 14th century Gothic Church, pharmacy and Tuesday market. Drive a further 2kms and you’ll find yourself at the Lac de Vassiviere, one of the largest lakes in France and the most popular destination for holidaymakers visiting the area. With six sandy beaches, supervised swimming in the summer, organised children’s games and a multitude of water sports for all the family, it really is a perfect place to relax or have fun with all the family. This 1000 hectare, man made lake, also has 300 kms of woodland trails, ideal for cycling, walking and riding and there are plenty of restaurants and bars. For the more adventurous you can sail, windsurf, canoe, water ski or simply fish, which is permitted all year round.

The island in the middle of the lake is home to a Contemporary Art Museum designed by the late Aldo Rossi. Access to the island is by foot, tourist train or boat.

There are many other pretty villages nearby including; Feniers, Peyrat, Felletin, Gentioux and the house is just a short drive away from the towns of Bourganeuf (Wednesday market) and Aubusson. Limoges and Guéret are both around 60 kms away.

The house has separate living and dining rooms, heated with open log fires. The dining room will comfortably seat 8 around the large table. The large lounge has a beamed ceiling with TV (English channels) & DVD player, settee and chairs at one end and a further dining area with music centre at the other, overlooking the garden. A supply of logs is included in the rental. There are DVDs to watch, games to play, and books to read.

The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge freezer, gas oven & hob, microwave oven, dishwasher, iron, toaster and kettle. etc.

The spacious bathroom has a shower, toilet, sink and washing machine.

The house has 4 spacious double bedrooms (2 double and 2 king-sized beds), with the 4th bedroom being accessed via the third. All bedrooms have traditional French wooden floors with chests of drawers and hanging rails. We can supply a travel cot if required - please request at time of booking.

To the rear of the house is a large grassed garden and with delightful woodland views across the valley.

Lovely character property, just as expected.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely 2 weeks in this charming old property with loads of character. It was just as we expected. Very spacious with 4 double bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen with all the essentials plus more. The dining room was lovely and large and it was nice having another eating area in the main living room, ideal for breakfast or lunch. (or playing games at the table) The garden was plenty big enough for the kids to play games etc. for the advertised price it is good value for money given the space available. The only down point I would say is that if a couple of families were sharing, the one bathroom would be a bit busy, although there is a downstairs toilet. This was not an issue for us though with a family of five.we would definitely consider going back in the future.

The area is absolutely outstanding with so much to do within a short drive or cycling if that's your thing. With 'lac de vassiviere' only a short drive away there was so much to do with great beaches, swimming, fishing, sunbathing and water sports you will never be short of something to do. Larger shops are about 30 minutes away and there is a small village shop just a few kilometres away with all the essentials.
