Exceptional! 5/5 -
(12 traveller reviews)


Highly recommend .... just brilliant !!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1week as a family of four with two girls aged 11 & 15 years. We all had a great time relaxing in the beautiful gardens and exploring the local French countryside and local towns. Evenings where spent in the beautiful gardens having a bbq, playing badminton and table tennis. (the weather was very kind to us)

I have stayed in many holidays lets and this is one of the best. It's ideal for a romantic get away or family break. Our children loved their stay and enjoyed the freedom away from the inter net/social media ! ( although wifi is available).

Jenny and David could not be more welcoming and ensured that our every need was met. It's a must if you fancy a visit to rural Farance we would definitely visit again.

Stunningly beautiful, countryside, Gite.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one month in this beautiful Gite which is maintained to top hotel standards. David and Jenny are meticulous about standards of cleanliness, and also kind, generous and welcoming hosts.

We loved the private garden and the wood burner in the evenings. We were there in Autumn, as the colours changed and we saw cranes flying south for the winter, deer, squirrels and buzzards.

It is a beautiful property and our two dogs were welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed the woods, countryside and lakes.

The nearby restaurant of La Tilleul du Sully was recommended to us by David and is the best restaurant we have ever visited. Stunning.

We now miss the sound of sweet chestnuts falling in the woods which surround the gite.

Delightful little corner of France

  • 5 of 5

Chabrenas was our base for our six week stay in France this year. The cottage has everything you need to make it a home away from home and the owners Jenny & David have thought of everything! Their attention to detail in equipping the cottage is second to none and they are there if you need them to offer any help and advice.

There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas, and we found the cottage very peaceful and relaxing. Jenny and David have put together a very comprehensive file of things to do in the local area, including easy to follow directions to the shops and supermarkets, restaurants and tourist sites. There are also many leaflets with details of walks from short to long in the beautiful countryside.

The village of Meuzac which is a couple of KMs away has a butcher and baker and a really nice restaurant by the lake.

Jenny and David are a very personable couple and nothing is too much trouble for them - by the time we left it seemed that we had known them for years, they really do make you feel at home and do everything they can to ensure that you enjoy your holiday - so much so that we have booked again for 2016 and cant wait to be back in Chabrenas!!

Cosy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful location in this beautiful part of France. We were spoilt with unseasonably mild weather, but still managed to get the log fire sparked up for a cosy evening in after exploring the fantastic countryside all day.

Jenny and David were most welcoming and friendly. The Cottage had everything we needed and was clean and nicely laid out.

Clear skies good for stargazing, the Sunday market at Objat and trip Brive worthwhile. A steak cooked on the open fire at the Auberge de l'etang is highly recommended (the carpaccio starter was the best ever!). A couple of hours away on good driving roads, the prehistoric paintings at Grotto de Font de Gaume is amazing and must for a great day out.

Perfect for a quiet and relaxing break.
