Each gite is bright and spacious and both have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Also available is a private garden and heated 8x4 metre swimming pool as well as woodland walks and a private lake.

Our private lake is available free of charge for guests to fish whenever they wish. The lake is approximately 1.5 acres in size and has a maximum depth of 2m.

Fabulous Gite with lovely surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome from hosts Steve and Margaret, a well set up gite with great pool set in lovely grounds with lake, woodland, fields, play area and pétanque pitch. Our kids had the run of the site and they loved exploring and playing in the safe grounds. Lots of activities locally including swimming lakes, canoeing and the velo rail which was a fun day out! Highly recommended and we hope to be back.

Very cosy gite, superb environment, charming hosts

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a very nice stay with our family beginning of August. The gites had all the comfort we needed. The bathroom might need an update some time, but it was definitely OK. Description of the location and pictures are representative (over the years the swimming pool is well surrounded by trees and plants). It was also very nice meeting Steve and Margareth, the hosts. They really took care, prepared us a welcome basket, and were happy to help us for advise etc. Not to forget: the lovely Jeux-de-boules evening we had together. We can surely advise this for anyone looking for a relaxing stay, in a very nice surrounding.

Gite spacieux au sein d'une grande propriété au calme.

  • 5 of 5

Gite spacieux au sein d'une grande propriété au calme. Piscine privée avec système de sécurité (à partager avec les potentiels locataires du gite voisin), aire de jeux pour enfant et terrain de pétanque pour votre plaisir.

Tout le confort pour passer d'agréables vacances (canapé-lit, TV avec lecteur DVD, DVD mis à disposition, douche et bain, lave linge et lave vaisselle, une grande chambre avec lit double et une chambre avec 2 lits simples, fer à repasser), belle terrasse à l'avant du gite avec coin repas et BBQ gaz.

Le gîte est assez proche des magasins d'alimentation (Carrefour Market et Lidl à plus ou moins 5 km) ainsi qu'une station service.

Les propriétaires sont très accueillants sans être envahissants et vous proposeront les curiosités à visiter dans la région.

Le gîte est propre et très bien entretenu.

Une belle découverte à recommander pour les amoureux de calme

Try the adventure park in Bussiere Galant (30km from Le Moulin) where you can try the zip wire, high ropes course, bungy, tennis, crazy golf and train rides.

Highly recommended is a visit to the Martyr Village of Oradour-sur-Glane which was destroyed by the Nazis in June 1944 and remains intact as a memorial and museum.

A 10 minute drive gets you to the 14Ha lake at St Mathieu with its man made beach, fenced off swimming area, fitness trail, showers and toilets. Fishing is possible (permit required).

For a day visit ,the caves at Lascaux are possible, and closer to the property are the Gallo Roman Baths at Chassenon
