The region is absolutely gorgeous and well worth a visit. We had excellent weather and therefore were able to take long walks with our dog. The nights were cool but the log fire made the cottage very cosy (Norman had fire ready when we arrived and bags of logs in the shed). The cottage has all the facilities needed for a short break away and the wifi was very useful. Norman and Sue were very quick with e-mail replies and were helpful in recommending a local vet (at Oradur). We would highly recommend the cottage and the area!

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!

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.
