About The Owner

I live and work in the UK with my two sons. We bought the house in 2015 after falling in love with this area and I genuinely believe its one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas there is!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why The Owner chose Indre

The location is simply just so tranquil with warm and much longer summers than the UK. The local area is stunning and you can enjoy quiet roads, great food especially the local goats cheeses and Berrichonne salads. Watch the sun go down in the back garden or watch it come up sat with a coffee and a croissant on the patio area at the front. Just 6 hours drive from Calais or 40 minutes from Limoges Airport it feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Relax, kick back and recharge your batteries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons passés un très bon séjour. Nous voulions du calme et c'est ce que nous avons trouvé. Cependant la location est à promixité des commerces. Le confort est au rendez vous et l'espace également. Notre arrivée s'est passée sans problèmes En résumé un très bon séjour dans une belle location avec en plus une belle piscine

Relaxing Holiday location

  • 5 of 5

This house is very spacious indeed, it is in a nice quiet location it is semi detached but was like a detached house as the people who had the house next door were not there all week. If your family don't like the same temperature the house is very cool, you can have the best of both worlds as you can open the patio doors and still communicate with the others sat outside on the front patio. It has a very large back garden, so is ideal for children to run around freely. There is a super u supermarket and fuel station 10 mins drive away that sold everything you would need, the prices aren't any more expensive than in England, they are open Monday to Saturday 09.30 till 19.30 and Sundays 09.00 till 12.00. Most places we visited the shops were closed from 12.00 till 14.30, and the restaurants open at 12.00 till 14.00. We went to Limoges on the Sunday that we were going home, the market was open in the morning and only a few restaurants were open, so I wouldn't recommend going on a Sunday. If you stay here you will need to hire a car as it is not on a bus route. We took our 3 dongle which didn't get a signal. We are both on 3 network, my husband got a signal on his phone most of the time, but I didn't for some unknown reason even though roaming was activated. Andy who rented us the property gave us loads of information about things to do and there was loads of leaflets on display in the kitchen. The sat nav didn't seem to know where the place was till we put in Lieu-Dit La Croix Rouge. Finally the bed is quite firm. Thanks Andy for the bottle of wine which my husband enjoyed very much.

Needs updating and cleaning

  • 1 of 5

Fridge freezer would either freeze everything or turn itself off and would not come back on for about 5 hours. Tried to contact the owner but had no response.

Owner's Response: Hi Colin thank you for bringing this to my attention. The fridge was fine when we were there for the 2 weeks prior to your stay but I will endeavour to get to the bottom of the issue. Unfortunately i didnt receive your message otherwise i would have responded immediately. My apologies for that.

A wonderful property with loads of character in an idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in Andys cottage and had a great time. We took our three boys (3, 2 and 6 months old) who had a great time playing in the large, enclosed garden and the above ground swimming pool which they spent hours in each day. BBQ's every evening and al fresco dining in the garden was the perfect end to days spent exploring the local towns and market or playing and swimming in the two nearby lakes. Well located for restaurants, boulangeries and the supermarket. An easy 5/6 hours from Calais. We will be back!

Very spacious both inside and out. Loved the welcome bottle of wine; also, little touches like coffee, all towels and toilet roll being provided made a real difference. Pool very welcome when days were hot and sunny. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you.

Peaceful rural cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely 2 week holiday here ,with warm sunny days and a peaceful location yet only a short drive to the local town with a boulangerie and a Super U ! Lots of quiet country walks in the locality and evenings spent chatting to the local residents in our best french !

The cottage was well equipped and very spacious and the coffee percolater was amazing !The garden was enormous and the pool was the icing on the cake ! We had visits from woodpeckers in the garden and saw deer on our moring walks . Thoroughly recommended and Andy is a very helpful owner. Merci beaucoup

Lovely house in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

La Rouge Croix is a truely lovely house filled with character. It is remote enough for completely peaceful relaxation whilst being in easy driving distance of a well stocked supermarket and town filled with bakeries, butchers, cafés and antiques shops. The pool was a welcome addition to the spacious garden allowing us to cool down in the great weather. A couple of day trips to local towns were very simple due to the ease of access to the motorway.

Andy, the owner, has been very helpful for local information and answered any questions promptly.

We would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful place and hope to return next year.
