About Jane Coulter

We are a friendly couple who enjoy the outside space, we are both passionate about classic cars and love animals.

Why Jane Coulter chose La Porcherie

The cottage has been recently renovated and is sympathetically furnished with quality furniture and furnishings. Our thoughts are 'if we would like to stay here then hopefully other people would too'

What makes this cottage unique

We are very flexible, we are happy to provide some meals if required (by prior arrangement at a very reasonable cost), a first day/evening meal is included ( for anyone booking at least 7 nights, a small charge for anyone staying less than 7 nights) on request. We also provide a first basic shop if required.

Very relaxing and pretty cottage in the Limousin

  • 5 of 5

Jane and Robert were the perfect hosts. Absolutely everything that anyone could need had been thought of. We loved the tranquility of the setting. There is a large decking area which is fantastic for sitting out on day or night. The large garden is fully fenced in which made it very relaxing for us as we had our dog with us. We would highly recommend visiting this beautiful cottage.

Quiet secluded Gite

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Jane and Robert's gite. On arrival we were shown around the property and given a meal by them with a glass of wine. The gite had every thing we required all in excellent condition and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay enjoyable. Couldn't have asked for any more.
