Why Laura or Tom Garbett chose Tulle

The renovation of the house has been a rewarding experience. The house was left to ruin and she is now back to life and an integral part of Rue Ste Catherine. It is now home to 3 individual one bedroom apartments, La Dordogne, La Correze and La Charente. We have kept as many of the original interior features as possible. This apartment being at the top of the building features exposed original roof beams throughout. Also during works we found medieval carved wall beams, now a feature in the bedroom wall. Velux windows make this apartment very light and airy with views of the village rooftops, the church and surrounding hillsides. The lobby and stairwell back wall is of pointed stones. We hope you enjoy the experience of living in a medieval village in a 15th century house with all the modern comforts and conveniences.

What makes this apartment unique

The colombage facade stands out boldy above the cobblestone lane. She sits comfortably amongst the stone facades of her neighbours. The wood carved window surrounds on the first floor date to the 15th century and are a rare example as most preserved ones are of stone. Each level of the house was built in a different era as we saw in the construction methods during the renovation. It is a little piece of history in a picturesque village.

This apartment is the nicest property we've rented. It is beautifully decorated and thoroughly equipped. It's evident that Laura put her heart and soul into bringing this building to life.

We enjoyed a relaxing three night stay in this lovely town. Parking is convenient and the shops, restaurants and the river are all within walking distance.

So do yourself a favor and book a stay in this beautiful apartment in the heart of France.

Notes:
The house is home to 3 one bedroom holiday apartments, La Dordogne, La Correze and La Charente. Located in the old medieval church square of the village off the main road. A boulangerie is only steps away, just follow your nose! Pretty location facing the 12th century church and the other houses in the square. In walking distance to cafes, shops, the local market and to the Dordogne River. The apartments have been renovated to new in 2014 so they are clean, bright and each has their own charm.
