The hamlet of Frachis is situated at the edge of the pretty village of St. Junien les Combes, our Gite and B&B accommodation offers a tranquil haven amid the rolling Limousin countryside. The individual properties we have on offer are French in style and help towards the overall experience of holidaying in the French countryside. The B&B includes en suite bathroom with shower; the gites include kitchen and washing facilities, bathroom and shower; all share access to the pool and gardens.
Frachis Cottages offers 5 acres of extensive grounds that give ample space to enjoy an evening stroll before dinner, let the children explore, or simply relax and lose track of time.
Having holidayed in France for many years whilst our children were growing up, we decided to move here permanently and live our dream enabling us to offer the same enjoyment to other families that we had over the years. Life here is much slower than in the UK, therefore relaxation is the order of the day, we hope you will enjoy your stay with us.
Anita Gould purchased this cottage in 2008
We fell in love with this beautiful area of France and we have always described it as one in a million. It speaks for itself and made our decision that little bit easier. We hope that when you see it you'll agree.
The buildings themselves are very authentic and traditional.
This location offers peace and quiet, at times all that can be heard is the gentle sound of the stream at the bottom of the garden. At night the property benefits from virtually no light pollution and therefore offers amazing opportunities to star gaze.
