Perfect time in Paradise!

5 of 5
A wonderful visit to Paradise! We have thoroughly enjoyed everyday here spending time by the pool, out for walks, runs, and fun trips out! Parc Zoo du Reynou is definitely worth a visit, a great trip out for young children. Relaxing evenings playing in the games room and also watching DVD's, beautiful sunsets and skies. We hope to visit again. Thank you for the perfect holiday!

Loved it here for our second stay

5 of 5
This was our second stay here and we could have stayed closer to what we we doing but we enjoyed our stay here last time so came back. The house is very clean and tidy, which I must say is so nice to have when going away. The house has everything you could need for your stay, from water bottles, blankets to snuggle under on a cold night, to a full kitchen of appliances and cooking items. The large fire has an amazing stock of wood and when it is going really sets the romantic feel, as well as a board game and bottle of wine or two....... The house has been restored to a good standard, with how it looked before the labour of love began to restore the house to way it is today. great position in Bellac, close to most things on foot and a very short drive to the main supermarkets.

Wonderful holiday cottage

5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful property Sept 2016, the cottage was wonderful, everything you needed was there, Cosy and decorated so tastefully, the cottage was very well placed, we could drive anywhere. Every night we sat in the garden and had our BBQ, it was very sad when we said goodbye, definitely would be back to this cottage again.
