Le Grand Juvet was originally built as the stud farm to the local Chateau and is a magnificent collection of stone buildings complete with tower. We live on site in the tower so are here to greet you and help with anything you need to make your holiday a great one, yet you have a the privacy of your own courtyard and pool. We have set out to provide spacious accommodation with peaceful, private outside space where we hope you will relax and enjoy the lovely scenery. If you can drag yourself away from the property we are in a great situation for exploring some stunning countryside. We have swimming lakes, beaches, marked walking and cycling trails all within 10 minutes and just a five minute drive from us we have the use of a private fishing lake.

We have lived in France for several years now and run two businesses, our gites and also a tree surgery business. Both of these allow us to make the most of the lovely countryside and glorious weather. We look forward to welcoming you to Le Grand Juvet.
Maxine purchased this Barn in 2008
Why Maxine chose La Roche-l'Abeille
We fell in love with this part of France. Its a beautiful area with lots of trees and lush countryside. The locals really could not have been nicer to us and we have been made so welcome. We often come home to find a neighbour has left surplus veg on our doorstep. Lots of people say its like the UK was 40 years ago when nobody had to lock doors and everyone was keen to help everyone else. Oh and coming from Scotland the weather has been a huge bonus, proper seasons and lots of sun in summer time!

Very comfortable, well equipped, character rural property in beautiful Limousin countryside.
Many thanks to Maxine and Darren for enabling us along with our setters Merlot and Darcy to stay in the barn.
Lovely house in a peaceful setting
This is a great house with lovely views in a peaceful area.The house has been restored to a good standard with everything you could need.The owners were very pleasant and helpful leaving bread,milk, jam and tea when we arrived late.The area is good for walking and cycling as the roads are very quiet.There are pretty villages with markets,chateaux,caves and towns with places of interest to visit in the area.
We stayed in the barn conversion and we were amazed at the detail and care taken to make the accommodation so comfortable, atmospheric and beautiful. Plenty of space and the outside area is perfect for relaxing, swimming and playing with awesome views, especially as the sun sets. Great location for exploring nearby towns too. We were lucky enough to get tickets for the Circus (Sirque) in Nexon to see an acrobatic performance, which was brilliant! A lot of shows and events in August so be sure to do some research. We had a fab holiday and couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay. Thank you! X
A most relaxing week
I would highly recommend this property. Spacious, well equipped, tastefully decorated, beautiful setting. So peaceful. Kind and thoughtful hosts, Maxine and Darren, who recommended some great trips out. Thank you.
Beautiful barn in a beautiful location
Maxine and Darren were wonderful hosts. They came and rescued us when we got lost (we were one village away). We stayed in the smaller barn conversion which was beautiful, it had everything we needed and more. It is set in a small hamlet, so you do need a car but there is a super market only 10 mins away and the roads are so so quiet which made driving super easy. Maxine and Darren know the area really well and gave advice on where to go, how to get there on alsorts of things we asked about including food shopping, zoo, markets etc. This is a really beautiful part of France and we had a wonderful weeks stay here. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.
Lost in France
The idea behind the title is that we were surprised how much space we had, inside and out. The property was what we would consider as a typical French farmhouse. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need. The rooms were large and airy and well maintained.
The owners were very approachable and friendly and were always on hand to help and advise us.
The pool and games room helped keep the kids amused when we were not out exploring.
We would recommend the property to friends and family and would consider a return trip ourselves.
The location is remote enough to be quiet but not so far as to be a problem. The surrounding areas have plenty to offer without having to travel too far.
Lots of lake beaches and lake swimming available within a 15 minute drive. During the summer all have a life guard and there are various other activities/facilities on offer, diving platforms, pedaloes, cafes, velo rail, canoe hire etc. We can advise on the best ones for your needs.
An easy 40 minute drive from Limoges airport. An easy hours drive from Brive airport. Approx two hours from Bergerac and Poitiers airports.
Approx seven hours drive from the ferry ports. The French motorways are excellent so it really is quite a pleasant trip!
4km to nearest village (which has an excellent restaurant open for lunches and dinner), 14km to the medieval town of St Yrieix la Perche which provides a choice of four large supermarkets, many restaurants to suit all budgets, bars, a weekly market and an excellent selection of shops. A new leisure centre has opened which offers indoor and outdoor pools with flumes and wave machine for the kids and spa facilities and gym for the grown ups. There are numerous Chateaux to visit locally.
