Family Gites Near Rochechouart With Fishing Lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 0 - 7 nights


About the property

Situated in the heart of the beautiful and unspoilt Limousin region of France, our holiday gites offer the discerning visitor a high standard of accommodation and provide an ideal base from which to explore the beauty and charm of this part of France.

The main house is a renovated 1860's watermill and is where we live. Our gites are located in a separate building which allows guests complete privacy during their holiday but we offer help and advice at any time should it be required.

We have two gites; Le Pic Vert and Le Martin Pecheur, and they can be rented together, accommodating up to 12 people, or separately for 6 people.

Each gite is bright and spacious and both have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Also available is a private garden and heated 8x4 metre swimming pool as well as woodland walks and a private lake.

Le Pic Vert has a spacious lounge with satellite TV and DVD player. The large fully fitted kitchen has modern appliances including a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and fridge freezer. French doors lead to the BBQ area and swimming pool.

Bedroom 1 has a double bed, bedside units and a wardrobe and has views of the surrounding countryside. Bedroom 2 has bunk beds, a washbasin and shower.

The bathroom has a full sized bath, wash hand basin, wc and bidet.

Bed linen and towels (excluding pool towels) are provided and there is plentiful free parking.

For parties of 6, we can provide a double sofa bed or a cot if required.

Our private lake is available free of charge for guests to fish whenever they wish. The lake is approximately 1.5 acres in size and has a maximum depth of 2m. It does not contain large carp by French standards but is offered for the enjoyment of guests as part of their holiday. Additional information can be found on our website (see links)

Très bon accueil, très beau lieu

  • 4 of 5

Steve et Margaret nous ont très bien accueillis.

La maison était bien équipée mais nous les avons sollicités pour obtenir quelques objets de cuisine qui manquaient. Nous les avons eus dès le lendemain.

Le cadre est très agréable et conforme à la description.

les photos sur le site méritent d'être mises à jour car elles ne correspondent pas à la réalité du jour.

Nous étions 2 adultes avec nos 2 petits-fils. Les rangements des vétements notamment sont insuffisants dans la chambre des enfants et dans la pièce à vivre.

La piscine est un plus dans le lieu retiré , tranquille.

Nous recommandons ce lieu aux clients qui veulent passer du temps et découvrir les richesses naturelles du Limousin.

Nous pouvons aussi suggérer de mettre à disposition plus de documentation sur les marchés comestibles, sur la voie verte cyclable, sur le site de la météorite, etc...

Enfin, le coût de la location est un peu élévé pour l'équipement de la maison.

Nous souhaitons "bon vent" à Steve et Margaret dans leur lieu paisible et bien situé.

Try the adventure park in Bussiere Galant (30km from Le Moulin) where you can try the zip wire, high ropes course, bungy, tennis, crazy golf and train rides.

Highly recommended is a visit to the Martyr Village of Oradour-sur-Glane which was destroyed by the Nazis in June 1944 and remains intact as a memorial and museum.

A 10 minute drive gets you to the 14Ha lake at St Mathieu with its man made beach, fenced off swimming area, fitness trail, showers and toilets. Fishing is possible (permit required).
