About Mrs Deborah Tuck
My husband & I moved over to France in 2010 and have enjoyed every minute of being here. We have 2 lovely dogs, one Miniature Schnauzer called Pentillie and one chocolate mixture of Border Collie & Spaniel called Dolly.
Mrs Deborah Tuck purchased this Farmhouse in 2010
Why Mrs Deborah Tuck chose Coussac-Bonneval
We decided to move out to France to find that quality of life that many of us lose over time. We feel we are very lucky to live in such a stunningly beautiful area, it's peaceful & calming but with an abundance of things to go do if you so wished. Only being 20 minutes drive from the A20 motorway makes it perfect for easy access and a straight run to the north or the south.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The Farmhouse built in 1778 is very spacious, with stunning views, we have a large garden & good size pool for cooling off on those hot days when sitting relaxing with a good book. We have our own little bread van that comes 3 times a week and a general produce van that also comes once a week, even though we have shops within 2 miles Our area will offer you the distraction needed for the relaxing holiday you deserve right throughout the summer months, be it walking, cycling, visiting Chateau's, regular daytime markets and the Night markets 2-3 nights a week that are at various villages around us, they're free to attend, lots of seating, live entertainment & local produce that you can buy for your evening picnic from the pretty stalls surrounding you.

Great location, lovely property, friendly and helpful hosts
Beautiful farmhouse, well situated, comfortable and with all the kit you need for a relaxing stay.
A beautiful period farmhouse
...set in a quiet hamlet surrounded by countryside.
Our host, Debbie, was so welcoming and kind. The home baked goodies and welcome pack were very well received! Debbie even supplied us with freshly picked cucumbers during our stay.
The pool is fantastic, with lovely views and well screened. The pool was impeccably clean and we know how much work goes into that!
Our daughter, son-in-law, 18 month old grandson and us all stayed together and were able to completely chill out for a week. We hardly wanted or needed to go anywhere.
The farmhouse is spacious, well furnished and equipped, and very clean.
Thank you Debbie for a lovely, chilled-out stay. We would love to come again.

Farmhouse in Figeas
What a beautiful, idyllic location. The farmhouse was spotless, it contains everything you could possibly need for a family holiday.
Beautiful surroundings for the children to explore and run around. Our children ( 2 and 4 yrs old) loved the outdoor pool and feeding the lambs.
Debbie was a fabulous, friendly host, making sure we had everything needed. The welcome pack was also most appreciated!
It was also the perfect location to experience French markets, lovely restaurants and days out.
We loved our family holiday at the farmhouse- you couldn't not!
Outstanding hidden gem
No review or thesaurus full of synonyms can ever adequately describe this idyllic gite and it's fantastic owners, Debbie and Graham, who can't do enough to make your stay brilliant.......
The place and setting are simply beautiful.......
Fantastic welcome on our arrival, with a glass or two of wine to break the ice !!!
Great day out at the races at Pompadour, and a tremendous night out at the ' marche de nuit' at Segur le Chateau followed by a number of days by the pool....
