About the property

Country retreat with beautiful views in a quiet and private location.

This 2 bedroom gite is the perfect place to get away from it all. The accommodation is brand new with a bath and shower, fitted kitchen with dishwasher and lounge with T.V, D.V.D and Wii. Children are welcome and we can supply a single bed if required as well as a travel cot and high chair for babies. Outside there is a large garden with trees for shade as well as sun loungers and a gas barbecue. The hamlet of just 6 houses means total peace to admire the beautiful views from the private secluded deck. Great for nature lovers, walkers and fishermen there is also lots of sightseeing and many street markets to visit. Just 12 minutes from Aubusson,which is a world Heritage site for Tapestry, with it's museum and many artisan workshops where you can watch the Lissiers (weavers) at work. There are also many bars, restaurants, shops and a weekly market. There are several Chateaux in the area to visit and Gueret (capital of the department) is just 25 minutes away with it's many shops. The area is also known for it's many lakes the most famous and largest of which is Lac de Vassiviere (40 minutes away) where there are beaches, restaurants and playgrounds. The nearest beach is just 10 minutes away at the Lake in Chenerailles where there is also crazy golf.

Comfortable gîte

  • 5 of 5

This was an extremely comfortable place to stay. A little remote, but everything you need is provided. Lynn and Tom couldn't be nicer - they are great hosts and live just next door. The château de Villemonteix is a must see and is close, as well as Aubusson and Moutier d'Ahun which are worth a visit. Highly recommended!

Well equipped rural gite

  • 5 of 5

Owners were friendly and helpful. The gite was spacious, very well equipped and clean. It was pleasant to relax on lounges under a large apple tree near the terrace. Excellent accommodation.

Fantastic property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I had the great pleasure of staying at this property for a getaway and it was wonderful. The hosts were incredibly friendly and accommodating and the property itself is just lovely. Everything has been recently renovated and is fresh and new and incredibly clean. The renovation is very well done and the rooms feel spacious and calming. A large, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, generous bedrooms, and a private deck with a breathtaking view, perfect for enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine. The perfect recipe for a restorative getaway to relax and refresh. We will absolutely be back and I highly recommend this property.
