Beautiful, quiet spot!
We had a lovely time in Gite 2.
Chris & Sue are very welcoming, friendly and very helpful.
The place is absolutely beautiful and quiet, the pool clean and heated every day. We had a fabulous time, thank you:-)
Just as good as the first time
This was our second visit to Chris and Susie's lovely Gites and again we could not fault anything. We stayed in the same Gite which since our last visit has been renovated inside making better use of the space downstairs. The grounds and swimming pool were just as we remembered them and we took full advantage of the pool as the weather was very kind to us for our week's stay. Chris and Susie have thought of everything and are very hospitable without being intrusive. This area of France is beautiful with lovely forest walks, beautiful towns and villages to visit and lakes with great facilities all nearby. Again, we would definitely recommend this Gite if you are looking for a quiet holiday home with plenty of outdoor activities close to hand. We will be back.
Fantastic Gite - Wonderfully Equiped + great hosts
This gite is really equiped to a wonderful standard, with such niceties as fans in every bedroom. Hairdryers in every bedroom. A great, clean pool area, bakery items delivered to the property each morning and a very wide selection of toys, games and activities to keep the whole family amused. Chris and Suzie were wonderful considerate hosts, and we can definitely say that this is the best gite we have stayed in in France.
We had a fantastic three night stay in gite number one. Chris and Susie couldn't have been better hosts.
The property itself was beautiful and immaculate, and the grounds relaxing and peaceful. Our three year old especially loved the large trampoline!
In fact we enjoyed it so much we're considering returning next summer.
A rustic idyll in Crozant
This entire area was a bit of a revelation to us, with its rolling hills and quaint woodland; we're much more used to flat open coastal areas of France. But this was a perfect spot to get away from things, tucked away in a quiet hamlet yet within a very easy strike of essential services (Super U, Boulanger’s, markets and banks). The beautiful countryside was easy to explore on foot, by bike and on our Kayak. The lake at Crozant provided a beach and swimming, on top of a Kayak spot. With Chris's help we found a sensible bike route - some directions from the Gite are very hilly!
And back at base, the quirky original features of the Gite are delightful and the cooling stone walls kept us comfortable on the hottest days. With the gorgeous pool to plunge in, table tennis and a trampoline, everyone was entertained without a struggle. Susie and Chris are great hosts and a mine of information, making great suggestions when we needed help to find stuff to do. Everything you could need is provided for self catering, picnics and barbeques, all leading to an easy, relaxing and very enjoyable break.
Wundervolle Tage in "Les Marronniers"
Wir verbrachten 2 wunderschöne Wochen bei Susie und Chris, diesmal im neuen Gite 3. Das liebevoll renovierte und ausgestattete Gite ist hell, sehr grosszügig und freundlich und lässt an Komfort nichts vermissen. Wir können dieses Landhaus wärmstens empfehlen. Wir genossen mit unseren Jungs den Pool, das Trampolin, spielten Darts oder Tischtennis und bestaunten nachts die unzähligen Sterne, die hier noch zu sehen sind! Auch die Kultur kam mit Ausflügen, wie zum schönen Städtchen Gargilesse und zu den Pierres jaumâtres bei Toulx-Sainte-Croix nicht zu kurz. Den nahen Lac de Chambon kann man via Motorboot erkunden oder durch das güne Tal der Sédelle flanieren. Herzlichen Dank für eure Gastfreundschaft, Susie und Chris, wir kommen gerne wieder!
We are just two hours from the chateaux of the Loire valley, in the beautiful rural Creuse département (23) of the Limousin region, close to the borders of Indre (36) and Haute-Vienne (87). All three départements contain a wealth of attractions for every taste, from the simple pleasures of quiet country life to the lively nightlife and student scene in the regional capital, Limoges.
Within a very short distance, you will find breathtaking scenery along the banks of the River Creuse; cultural sites with strong local connections to George Sand, Chopin, Monet, Guillaumin and the other impressionists; historical towns, chateaus, ancient churches, and fortifications dating back to the days of the crusaders and even earlier; tennis, water-sports, fishing, horse-riding, nature walks, and farm visits; lake-side restaurants and bars, outdoor cafes, gourmet auberges, a state-of-the-art discotheque (4 miles from us - well out of earshot!) and even a “cottage pub”.
The Tour de France is returning to Limoges in 2016, stages on the 5th and 6th July.
Other Activities: Bird-watching, sailing, microlighting, flying
