The gite is 2 minute walk to the town but out of the way enough to be in a quiet rural setting. Only 10 minute drive to Rochechouart with its stunning chateau and only 30 minutes drive from Limoges Airport so all-round good location. Comfy bed, good bathroom and British TV if needed.

The Gite was equipped to an extremely high standard, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We would highly recommend this accommodation and will certainly be returning in future visits to France.

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!
