A beautiful house with lots of character in a lovely quiet area of the Limousin. There is plenty of garden space for relaxing (in both shade and sun) or for children to play. We enjoyed walking along the river near the shrine in St Auvent and had an excellent meal in the auberge in the village. There are quite a few things to do in the area including Oradour sur Glane - harrowing but the sort of thing everyone should do from time to time. We also visited Limoges - try lunch in the excellent canteen at the covered market. We also visited the Roman baths at Cassinomagus which was very interesting. John and Mair
Gite de Chabanne is fantastic. A tasteful and sympathetic barn conversion that combines the history and charm of the original features with every mod con & luxury you could require. Beautiful, exposed original beams sit high above spacious open plan living with two mezzanine floors as well; one containing the hot tub and sauna, the other the pool table.
Four comfortable and spacious double bedrooms and a great top floor space with 6 single beds means we all had plenty of space and privacy. The outdoor space was also great with a good size swimming pool, comfortable loungers, covered seating area, bbq and table tennis table.
The small town of Ambazac is just a 10 minute drive away where you can find a good SuperU supermarket along with a great bakery and a couple of small bar / restaurants. The bigger town of Limoges is just a short drive down the A20 where you’ll find multiple great bars, restaurants and shopping.
Philippe and Jeanne are great hosts and were always available for any advice and recommendations. We had a great time here and I’m sure you will too!
