Nestling in the spectacular Monts D'Ambazac (Limousin, Haute Vienne) and set on the edge of the beautiful historic village of Grandmont, Grandmont Gites offers three charming, stylish and cosy gites providing the perfect getaway for anyone wishing to explore this part of France.
Grandmont Gites is a chameleon in years gone by. Originally a hostel, later a hotel, bar & brasserie and at one time even, a pumping station!.
To this day Gite Les Arbres (a period French cottage) retains the charm and character of its heyday as the former bar & brasserie where locals and passersby congregated for chatting, drinking, eating and dancing.
In fact, the original bar now separating kitchen and lounge has been the resting place for many a French elbow of residents among us this very day.
Designed across ground floor level Les Arbres sleeps up to 5 guests. A cosy long lounge from the entrance leads to the kitchen which is well equipped for everything you need to self-cater. In turn, this leads to a large dining area with both bedrooms leading off. The master bedroom leads to the private patio. The second bedroom can be arranged with either a double bed or two singles. There is space outside the room for a futon/camp bed.
We have two other gites at Grandmont both of them listed with HomeAway:
Les Vignes sleeps 8 guests and is designed over two floors and is perfect for large families or groups
