Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars “A truely wonderful experience”

We stayed in this beautiful cottage for 3 months whilst house hunting in the neighbouring countryside. Our hosts Jo, Ian,Sue and Norman made us feel like one of the family. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable and the setting was stunning. We really enjoyed the tranquill surroundings and the many peaceful walks around the area. We were also able to explore further a field in the many lovely villages and towns close by, but it was always a treat to be able to return to the lovely cottage in the mountains. A huge thank you to our hosts for the truely wonderful experience we had whilst staying there.

Self Catering Accommodation In The Monts De Blond

Has pretty much everything you need for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Last minute booking (as usual) and struck gold again!

Small gite, but has everything you need.

One of the things I find frustrating about staying in gites, is when the kitchen doesn't have all the tools you need - this kitchen was pretty good!

Patio outside the back door for al-fresco eating - lovely.

Big garden for the kids to play in (down a bit of a slope and out of sight, so accompanied our small kids, but lovely big area for football, badminton, etc.)

TV and internet good (I know you should escape from day to day life, but having internet does save on buying data bundles and 3G is a bit scarce in the countryside anyway)

Owners on hand if there are any problems, but leave you to your own devices if not.

Cieux is only a few Km away and has 2 boulangeries - weather permitting, we recommend saving breakfast until you are heading out (so long as you don't leave it until all the croissants are sold out!) and laying out a picnic blanket under the trees of the Marie carpark around the corner from the boulangerie.

The biggest selling point of this gite is undoubtedly the area - stunning Limousin countryside, and so peaceful and quiet. We went running around the roads and lanes in the evenings, and barely saw a car!

Lac de saint Pardoux is fabulous - lovely big swimming area (great for paddling and proper swimming) and sandy beach - and free parking ( - they are building a huge slide and indoor pool complex, so not sure what it will be like then!)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. It was nice to see the children make full use of the garden, Benji (our lab) enjoyed their company too. Your are right about the stunning Limousin countryside, it was one of the things that drew us to this area originally, the peace and quiet was a bonus. Norman & Sue.

Nice stay in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We spent a pleasant week here in April. The owners Joanne and Ian , were helpful and friendly. They could not have been more accommodating, helping out when there was an issue with our hire car, and even picking up a few of the essentials for us from the supermarket, to get us through the first night. The gite itself is comfortable and we enjoyed our mornings with the back door open, listening to the bird song. Nights were spent in just sitting watching films in front of the log burner. The area itself, is in areas, simply stunning . Great quiet roads, lakes around every corner, rolling hills, a great restaurant a 10 minute drive away - really nice. We would definitely, like to return .Many thanks.
