We spent a super week in Le Petit Marmiers at La Maison d'Auguste. We were are a party of 5, with 3 older teenagers. Alain and Monique were very welcoming and as soon as we arrived they both familiarised us with the property.
The house was equipped with everything we needed and we were glad we had opted for the linen package and cleaning. We loved the private garden especially when Alain fitted us with an extra light so that we could play games in the evening. The swimming pool was an added bonus and we used the pool daily.
Alain and Monique were keen to share their fresh produce and the lettuce, cucumber and courgettes were used for our yummy BBQ! We also liked the local farm cat 'Mimi' who was so friendly. The French neighbours were also very kind and welcoming and we enjoyed drinking wine and eating lovely deserts with them on the last night.
We loved the area where the house was situated. Ambazac was great for shopping and we stocked up at lidl and super u. We enjoy eating out and we did find that this was the most disappointing part of the holiday. The pizzeria in Ambazac 'freddo' was great and we ate there twice. The service and food was great. We also went to the recommended hotel in Ambazac 'Hotel des Voyages'. The food was first class but unfortunately the service was very slow. We waited over an hour and a half for the starter. Unfortunately there were no other restaurants open in the evening. One evening we did try the kebab shop in Ambazac - this was very good.
We wanted an activity week and were able to achieve this at this location. We loved walking around Le Petit Marmiers. We enjoyed the activities at St Pardoux Lake, only 20 minutes drive away. We hired bikes and cycled 8 miles. We recommend you stick to the cycle piste. We went another day and walked 8 miles around the lake. Beautiful and a welcome stop half way at a cafe for drinks and ice cream. Our teenagers also enjoyed the adventure trail - PARC ACROBATIQUE EN FORÊT. It was very reasonably priced.
We recommend that you visit Oradour-Sur-Glane. This was a chilling experience visiting the village that suffered a massacre by the Nazis in 1944. The whole village remains untouched and is maintained as a permanent memorial and museum.
The house really suited our needs. It has everything we needed. Alain and Monique were extremely helpful, kind and the perfect hosts.
If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday, then this is perfect. Thank. you.
