Myself and my two teenage boys live in Buckinghamshire but we all love France and especially the area where our house is. After numerous holidays we decided to purchase the house in April 2015.

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.

Beautiful traditional french cottage in a peaceful Idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing holiday ever in this beautiful cottage. Whilst the setting is quiet and unspoilt the local shops cater for everything you need from croissants and baguettes and fresh produce to excellent wines as only the French can.

The outside space is fabulous with lots of trees for shade; a great pool to cool off in with views over the local countryside.

The cottage is very spacious but still cosy with a very traditional feel about it. In fact we really fell in love with the place and can't wait to return.

From the Owner

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.
