About the property

Sleeps 6. 4 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom ground floor

Set in the heart of the peaceful Creuse countryside, this beautiful and sympathetically converted barn is in a modern yet traditional style set in a small, idyllic hamlet with sunny garden and patio area for relaxing and barbecues. Sleeping 6 people, this comfortable gite offers luxury with a modern wet room and well equipped kitchen and dining area. The lounge offers French TV, wifi and comfortable leather sofas. Bedrooms: 1 Master double bedroom, which runs from front to back of the house, there are Velux windows and wonderful views. 2 single bedrooms with large antique single beds and 1 twin room on the ground floor with two single beds. A travel cot is available. All linen and towels are freshly laundered provided each week.

There is electric heating available in each room and a heated chrome towel rail in the Wet room.

Outside in front of the other barns there is parking available for two cars. The garden has a BBQ and is perfect for alfresco dining. With beautiful country views of the Limousin, you can walk for miles seeing farmland, woodland, lakes and plenty of wildlife.

Situated about 15 km between two major towns of Gueret and La Souterraine. There are very good road links to the nearest towns Dun le Palestel (7km away)and the N145 which takes 20 mins to Gueret and 20mins to La Souterraine.

Our nearest City; Limoges is only 45 minutes away.

The motorway network in this local area is free (no tolls).

Outdoor activities:

There is ample opportunity for fishing, swimming, watersports and boating in the surrounding area. Plenty of designated, marked walks are on the doorstep and you can follow the Artist Monet when he resided here by taking the Impressionists' trail in neighbouring Fresslines. There is a Wolf Park and the worlds largest Maze to visit in Gueret and a Medieval Church and ruins in la Souterraine. See more links under general Information.

This property is suitable for all able bodied people but could be restrictive to anyone using a wheelchair or who are unsteady on their feet. Access for wheelchairs would be via the front door of the house and the bathroom facilities are downstairs but there is a threshold across the exterior door.

Please note that smoking is not permitted in the gite accommodation, we ask that you discard your cigarette ends responsibly. No pets allowed at this time.

About Dale and Catherine Sutton

Dale, Catherine and our two children, living here in France since 2013.

Why Dale and Catherine Sutton chose Naillat

This property allows you the freedom to explore, relax and just have a lovely time with your family or on you own. We are nearby in case of emergencies or for any questions, but we will not bother you or intrude.

What makes this cottage unique

A cool, very comfortable stone cottage providing wonderful relief in the height of a hot French summer!

Very near to many amenities and life, but far enough away to be quiet, tranquil and full of flora and fauna.

Lovely gite in quiet countrtsude

  • 4 of 5

The gite was exactly as we had hoped, clean, tidy and a bit quirky but with everything we needed. The wetroom was fabulous! Catherine and Dale were lovely hosts, available to answer our questions on house hunting, but were not intrusive. We would definitely recommend this gite for a peaceful stay in lovely countryside.
