Madame Christiane Is a lovely Lady obviously very proud of her lovely property in the Correze. Its in a Good central location for visiting the surrounding areas. There are many medieval towns of interest and tourist areas are within driving distance. Local shops and supermarkets are with a 20min drive. The property is well equipped and I could not think of any extra things you might need. Prompt communication when booking with Madame Christiane which I think is an important aspect when trying to plan a stay. All in all a good stay...
The house is equipped with modern facilities which work well. There is a fully functioning kitchen including dishwasher. The bathroom and toilet fittings are reasonably modern and the walk in shower works well There was ample hot water. The only omission was a dryer for the washing. Unfortunately we had some wet weather and it was difficult to dry clothes inside with only a folding rack.
The wooden floors are original ,somewhat undulating and creak a bit,but this is rather natural for such an old building which has been sympathetically restored. Ther are electric wall heaters which mainly work and for cold weather one can have a log fire in the huge original fireplace.
Mobile telephone reception was rather marginal. There is Internet connection which worked reasonably but not in all rooms.
There is good car parking at the side of the house.
A large lawn can be enjoyed in good weather behind the house. A working farm goes on nearbye and sight and sound of the cows is pleasant. The young farmer just up the lane is very friendly and speaks English.
Our host Monsieur de Lupel went out of his way to be helpful and is a very friendly man. We were sorry that his wife was away and M de Lupel had to also leave before our tenure finished,we should have liked to talk more with him in our limited French
The location is very rural in pretty undulating countryside with lots of small villages in the area. Objat and Vigeois are the local towns about 15 or 20 mins away. Further away there is very pleasant upland country areas and the Dordogne valley is very attractive. Brive La Gaillarde is a city which has been well restored but otherwise not so remarkable.
A stay at Les Chaises Basses would appeal to visitors seeking traditional rural France without a heavy tourist presence.
