There are a number of unique events to be enjoyed from a rural gite in Haute Vienne. The last weekend of August sees the annual tractor racing finals arrive in St Junien, and the velo-rail de Bussiere Galant is open during July and August.

Everything still very clean, very comfortable and very peaceful. The weather was a bit against us (it was Autumn/early Winter !!!!), but despite this we still managed to explore and experience new and different areas. People everywhere very friendly, and roads very “early Sunday morning ish” !! Still plenty of good restaurants within easy driving distance. Must try and visit in the spring/early summer next time.

We enjoyed the fishing very much and the surroundings were beautiful with the Autumn colours, the wildlife and the lake views. After a day fishing in the sometimes, cold and wet weather, it was great to go back to the warm and comfortable farmhouse.. We look forward to returning next year.

                                                                                                      We knew from the photos on the website that this property would be amazing; little did we know that what you see on the website is only half the story. The house itself is cavernous and handsomely furnished. When we arrived it was spotlessly clean. The layout is extremely versatile - we stayed as two families (one with grandma in tow!) and there was the flexibility for our families to almost have their own zone of the house, as well as ample choice of bathrooms! Downstairs the kitchen is fantastically well-equipped; we love cooking and found everything we needed - a rarity in our experience! There is also the option to cook outside, which we did as the weather was so warm. In terms of eating areas, again, you are spoilt for choice: the kitchen; the dining table in the entrance hall; the table in the main living area or, our favourite, alfresco, with the most amazing views. So, how to pass the time? We could have spent every day lazing on the deck - reading books in the hammocks and plunging into the pool for a cool down. There was certainly enough to keep the children occupied. However, I am glad that we decided to explore the local area - it did not disappoint! We spent most days at Lac Vassiviere - about 15 minutes' drive from the house. We stopped at several of the different beaches, all of which were great ways to spend a day. The children enjoyed the play areas and the beach. They spent hours swimming in the safe swimming designated zones, which were life-guarded. It was bliss to be able to read a book safe in the knowledge that the children were supervised. At each of these beaches there were places to buy food and drink - fantastic pizzas at one. We also took a trip to the island on the lake via the small train (a water taxi is also an option) to see the sculpture park - well worth a visit. The children really enjoyed their trip to Arbre en Arbre - similar to 'Go Ape' in the UK, but a lot cheaper and a lot better. It is worth checking the opening times (particularly at the end of the season). All in all we cannot recommend this property or area enough. We plan to return to continue exploring this hidden gem.
