Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2/3

Discover this wonderful unspoilt area of France from the comfort of this delightful little cottage. La Petite Chabrenas is situated in a small hamlet surrounded by woods and meadows and is found ‘down the end of the lane’, providing a tranquil base from which to explore. Relaxing drives take you along lazy rivers to chateaux, picturesque market towns, lakes with swimming beaches or the ancient Cities of Limoges and Brive, as well as the Vezere, Lot and Dordogne valleys. This pretty little self contained cottage and garden allow you to experience the quiet and peaceful setting of Chabrenas. A perfect base for a holiday in France.

Exploring the Countryside: There are local swimming lakes at Meuzac, St Germain les Belles and St. Yrieix la Perche with beaches and small restaurants/snack bars. Short walks can be taken within the bounds of the property and there are plenty of longer signposted walks or cycle rides around the locality. The Vezere, Lot and Dordogne valleys are all within easy travelling distance with their stunning views and pretty villages including Rocamadour, Collonge La Rouge, Cirq Lapopie and many others

Culture / Places of Interest : Chabrenas is close to the cultural areas of Limoges (30 km) and Brive (50 km) both of which have cathedrals, many shops, museums, theatres and plenty of local history. Many summer festivals, classical concerts are held in local towns in July and August. Horse racing is held every Wednesday and some weekends during July/August/September in Arnac Pompadour. There are many chateaux to visit including our local Coussac Bonneval (8 km) also La Grenerie, Hautefort, Arnac Pompadour, Jummillac le Grand and a bit futher afield Turenne, Castlenau & Montal. Lubersac, Arnac Pompadour and St Yrieix are market towns on the route of “Richard the Lionheart”, all within 10/15 minutes drive and all have shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Oradour sur Glane is also just northwest of Limoges and this village was the scene of a 2nd World War massacre by the Nazis. Spectacular caves can be seen at Grotte de Roc, Goffre de Padirac and the cave paintings of Grotte de Lascaux.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For two weeks we stayed in Le Petit Chabrenas and had a lovely time. The house is more than comfortable. For someone who likes to cook and prepare dinner themselves the many kitchen utensils and the amount of (very nice) crockery are wonderful. The bed was good, the garden spacious and private (there are trees to hang your hammock!). We made a few longer walks in the surroundings and enjoyed the quiet and beautiful scenery. Do not expect touristic excitement near by. If you love to be away from the madding crowd, this is your gite!

A Treemendous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute delight! Jenny and David most accommodating, friendly and humorous. The location is quiet, the cottage superb and the weather forecast stuck to the window each morning was a great help! The Limousin area reminded us of our home county of Derbyshire and the way of life is idyllic. Reminded us of how England used to be and - quite frankly - how it still should be!

Got to go again soon! And no the spelling in the title is not a mistake - its intentional! Jenny and David will explain when you arrive! Please go, you won't be disappointed!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

David and Jenny were wonderful hosts. The bungalow is well-appointed and organized, and you have everything you need. It is conveniently located near the A20 motorway, so easy to access, but still give you a feeling of remoteness, peace and quiet. Definitely recommended!

Chabrenas is situated in the beautiful countryside of the Haute Vienne Department of Limousin. It is ideally situated close to the main A20 Autoroute (10 Mins) if you wish to travel quickly to the attractions of the area. However, if you prefer you can take gentle drives down country lanes and wend your way to visit local chateaux, such as Coussac Bonneval, still inhabited by the Marquis de Bonneval, or follow the route of ‘Richard the Lionheart’. Stop and sample food and wine in some of the prettiest villages in France such as Segur-le-Chateau, Montemart, St Robert, Collonges-la-Rouge and Turenne, or relax by one of the many swimming lakes in the area. Wend a little further and visit the unique sights of Sarlat-la-Caneda, Rocamadour or Cirq Lapopie, a few of the picturesque villages that make up the Dordogne and Lot Valleys.

Other Activities: Flying, Historic monuments and sites and chateaux

Golf: Nine Golf courses are within easy travelling distance. Limoges being the nearest having two courses, Golf de la Porcelaine at Panazol 18 hole/par 72 and Golf de Limoges Saint-Lazare, 18 hole/par 72. Golf du Coiroux at Aubazine 18 hole/par 70 course.
