Why Rachel Lowe chose Saint-Vaury

We bought Le Chez in 1997 and moved here permanently in 2000. It took one man 2 years to restore the cottage, learning a lot in the process.

What makes this Cottage unique

Space & tranquility. Cycling/walking tracks run directly from the property. Surrounded by land which we own, much of it wooded.

The cottage is surrounded by beautiful nature and endless stars in the night. The air we breaved was clean, the area peaceful and quiet. We surely will come back and would like to recommend it as a healthy and peaceful miracle

                                                                Idéal pour se reposer et faire une vraie coupure !

                                                                We had the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday in this beautiful gite. From the moment you arrive, Rachel and Jamie make you feel so welcome and they couldn't be more helpful. The gite itself has been lovingly restored to feel cosy and rustic yet has everything you need, even down to the herbs growing outside! We had lots of lovely walks in the surrounding countryside which is as pretty and quiet as you'd hope and the village (only a short walk away) has a little supermarket and a bar. If it weren't for the fact that there are lots of other lovely places to go and explore, there'd be no need to leave! We'll definitely return!

                                                                The owners, Rachel & James are very friendly.

                                                                The region is nice, quiet, but at some places suffers from a lack of activity.

                                                                I will recommend this property to people looking for very quiet holiday -what we were looking for :)
