About Terry Andrews

Debbie and I moved to France in 2011 and spent the first 6 months living in our motor home whilst searching for the perfect property. We based our search here in the Limousin having fallen in love with the area on previous holidays. After looking at over 100 properties we finally decided on this one. It was its secluded and peaceful location that swung it but also the potential of the house and barn to create a lovely home for us with a separate holiday gite we could share with guests.

Terry Andrews purchased this barn in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic 2 week holiday in one of the nicest locations and holiday villas we have ever stayed in.

Beautiful part of France, and immaculate accommodation. We will miss the complete tranquility and amazing night skies.

Beautiful 3 Bed Gite With Heated Pool And Garden Set In Tranquil 12.5 Acres
average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

Perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful house with everything you could possibly need. Everything was immaculate and clean and done to such a high standard.

The pool and BBQ area were brilliant and even though the end of our week was rainy there was still lots to do in the local area. Would definitely recommend!

The most beautiful gite! Terry and Debbie have made everything perfect. I'm almost reluctant to tell everyone how lovely it is, in case it gets so booked up we can't visit again! But they deserve to be booked solid, they've done such a marvellous job.

Wonderful relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

THe gite was perfect for a relaxing French holiday. The property was thougtfully organised to a high standard. The owners were friendly and helpful. The pool was lovely and warm.

There was a choice of excellent boulangeries close by - critical for us in France! There was plenty of space to play cricket, go for walks. We shall return next year! That says it all!

Don't hestitate to book! The house is perfect, location lovely and a nice pool. The house has airco, with the high temp its cold in the house :).

The garden is great with a Nice walk around it.

Shame that we had to leave after a week!

Limoges is worth the visit, also the catheaus nearby.

Absolutely excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best gite we have stayed in during 40 years of holidaying in France. We liked it so much that we have booked again for next year before coming home!

The gite is just lovely. The owners, Debbie and Terry, have thought about what people need for a really wonderful holiday. The interior layout is very well designed, and the furnishings have been carefully chosen. We particularly liked the fact that there is a cloakroom just near the backdoor which leads out to the terrace and pool area, and also that the terrace has plenty of shade all day. There was plenty of kitchen equipment for food preparation and a superb gas barbecue on the terrace area, which we used for most evening meals. The bedrooms, especially the main bedroom with ensuite, are a good size and air conditioning helped towards the end of the week when the weather was very hot.

The grounds are lovely too - beautifully planted with mature trees. The gite grounds includes a gravel area to the side of the terrace, the swimming pool which is well maintained and some lawn area up a slight slope to the back of the pool. The pool is heated overnight which was welcome at the start of the week when it was cooler, and we loved playing pool volleyball. There is a variety of pool 'toys' suitable for all ages, including those of us almost into second childhood!

We very much liked the local area and we did some of the local walks provided in the welcome file. The Voie Vert is close by which we walked along in the shade, but is really for cycling. We visited Rochechouart and a couple of local villages and towns for supermarket shopping and coffee. The supermarkets were all very good. But most of all we loved being at the gite and just relaxing in this beautiful, peaceful environment.

Thank you, Debbie and Terry

Excellent Gite - beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting, Gite everything you need and very well thought out; one of the very best we've stayed in. The owners are very helpful and the whole accommodation is very private with lots of lovely ground. Great local places to visit, wine and dine ... With a heated pool to return to. What more could you want?
