Overview

About the property

characterful cottage | 2 bedrooms | private patio | heated pool | mountain bike

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

Les Fleurs sleeps 4 guests and is ideal for couples sharing

Our facilities at the complex include:

- onsite free parking

- salt water heated outdoor pool (chemical free)

- outdoor table tennis and garden games

- DVD library

- winter rental from late September to early April

- storage for house hunters

- child and pet-friendly

Nearby is the medieval town of Ambazac with places to eat, shop and sightsee including the towns' charming 13th Century church - home to two of the regions' most precious relics.

Limoges city is approx 25 mins drive, popular for its arts and crafts, theatres and museums, bars, eateries, boutiques and festivals... like Paris without the hassle and bustle!

Lac Saint Pardoux is 15 mins drive and provides a beach-in-reach. Packed with all kinds of water sports and year round activities - it's a great place to keep the family entertained.

The area of Grandmont is surrounding by lakes for fishing and swimming, with endless forest trails and stunning scenery.

About Louise and James Hampson

We explored the depths of France in search of the perfect spot to set up home and business. We found it here in Grandmont.

As a holiday and winter rental business Grandmont Gites has thrived since its conception in 2008, regularly scoring full marks on TripAdvisor.

Our Gites are charming, stylish and cosy and we pride ourselves in accommodating guests with holidays to treasure.

We reside from the UK South West England and have been planning our move to France for some years now. We fell in love with Grandmont on-the-spot, immediately recognising it for the special place it is. The idea of making it our new home and lifestyle was a no-brainer and at Olympian speed, was planted firmly in our hearts. Who could possibly resist being surrounded by such incredible beauty? Acres of lush green forest and luminous lakes. Cottages built of stone with wooden beams and cosy log burners. A scenic pool setting with a garden that stretches as far as the eye can see. Not to mention heaps to do here on the doorstep and a little further afield.

We were, and remain to the day, blown away. 

It’s no surprise to us Grandmont Gites has been booked all year round for the past five years thanks both to its stunning backdrop and the quality of these three charming, stylish and cosy gites.

What we bring to Grandmont...

James is a highly experienced carpenter and Louise a qualified interior designer and communications manager. Before moving to France we worked side by side installing over 40 bespoke kitchens across the South West of England over the course of a year.

 Together we're enthusiastic cooks and passionate party hosts so we’re truly excited by the many opportunities Grandmont Gites affords us.

Most of all, we are enjoying sharing what Grandmont has to offer our guests and providing them holidays to treasure. Along the way, we hope to learn more about them too!

Super we de la Pentecôte à Grandmont Gîte

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer un super séjour dans ce Gite. Nous avons loué les deux gîtes "les arbres et les fleurs", Louise et James sont super et tres soucieux du bien être de leur hôtes.

L'espace piscine avec tres grand jardin est top ( partie de foot avec amis enfants ).

Les gîtes sont propres avec beaucoup de charme.

Nous reviendrons avec amis et enfants pour louer cette fois les 3 gîtes !

Merci à Louise et James pour leur bienveillance et leur gentillesse.
