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.

It's very well equipped with high quality fixtures and fittings, and immaculately presented. Owners Lisa and Andy are nearby if you need anything but otherwise you have complete privacy. It's a great area for walking and cycling/mountain biking and the private lake is great for a relaxing few hours fishing - I caught many perch during my stay and one close to 3lbs. Highly recommended!

Warm and plenty of wood for the log burners which we loved. TV and bluray dvd player with large selection of dvds available. Loving the dining room table!! A fabulous place to stay. Pool looks amazing but obviously due to being winter not used. Definitely recommend this house. Lovely walks and especially the little lake down the road where we watched a muskrat and deer. Found an English run pub/bar/hotel in Champsac about 2-3 kilometres away. Would be great in summer with more activities available. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

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.
