Gites With Swimming Pool - Breadoven (Sleeps 6. 3 Bedrooms)



Updated: 24-Nov-2016
Gites in St Eloy-les-Tuileries, Limousin, France - Beautiful Peaceful Location

La Borderie is a renovated small farmstead with the buildings set around a courtyard dominated by a magnificent lime tree. The old piggery has been fully renovated to form 2 gites, one of which still retains the original bread oven. One of the barns has been given a concrete floor and equipped with 2 pool tables, a table tennis table, table football and various other toys and games. Adjoining this is a courtyard with barbecues and beyond that is a 10x5m swimming pool. Behind the gîtes lies 2 acres of grounds with 3 ponds. The surrounding land is still farmed, the main crop being the famous Limousin beef cattle.

About the Owner

Mike grew up in Brighton and Kerstin in Sweden. We married in 1968 and have 5 kids and 7 grandchildren (soon to be 8). Most of our working lives were spent in the NHS in Sussex. We both retired in 2007 and, looking for a new adventure, sold up in the UK and moved to France.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Arrived unexpectedly after our booked villa fell through. A week later we are so thankful that the villa did fall through because we have had the most fantastic holiday here at this gite. Everything about it is perfect including the most beautiful garden and the best swimming pool we've enjoyed in France. But the pièce de resistance is the games room which kept the children unexhaustingly interested every evening."

"What a lovely place this is. Spacious and comfortable. We've had a happy time here lounging around and enjoying the pool and the games room. Limousin is perfect - the only problem is too much delicious food everywhere - can't stop eating!"

"At first the gîte looked calm and gentle before we arrived and started screaming, shouting and generally messing around. The games barn had an atmosphere as loads of different things such as pool, table tennis and darts. … Overall we had a great time and I hope to come back soon! (Kaj, aged 10)

From the Owner

We fell in love with this area for all sorts of reasons - it's clean and peaceful, the night sky is amazing, it's unspoilt, the weather is good, it's friendly, there are plenty of good places to eat and, in the summer, there's lots to do. With our family dotted around the world it's also useful to have good transport links, air, rail & road, all within easy reach.

Limoges Bellegarde airport is 35 miles away. Limoges Bénédictins station 30 miles. Both journeys take about an hour. Use of a car is strongly recommended. Cars can be hired from both the airport and station in Limoges and also from St Yrieix-la-Perche, our nearest town. The distance from the channel ports is between 335 and 450 miles and takes 6-7 hours driving.


The nearest villages Glandon and Ségur-le-Château are 3.5 miles and St. Yrieix-la-Perche, the nearest town 6 miles.

Further Details:

St Yrieix is a very complete little town with a full range of shops, bars, banks, supermarkets etc. There is a cinema and a new swimming pool/leisure centre. Market days are the 2nd and 4th Friday each month.

Ségur-le-Château hosts a Producers' Market every Monday evening during July and August. Roam the stalls selecting your meat from one, your wine from another, bread from a third etc. Make your way to the BBQ in the corner where your meat will be cooked for you. Find yourself some space on the trestle tables provided and that's it. Eat, drink and be merry, listen to the live music, dance. What more could you wish for.

Since our move here 3 years ago we have devoted ourselves, selflessly and unsparingly, to researching the local restaurants. There are many good ones but they are not always the obvious ones. Happily we are now in a position to share our hard won knowledge and experience with our guests. We can give you the lowdown on most of the local eateries. And, whatever your eating requirements are, we can recommend the right venue.

From the Owner

We love the setting - 4 buildings surrounding a courtyard dominated by a huge lime tree. Behind the gîtes we have 2 acres of garden dropping away with wonderful views. Summers can be really hot, so the pool is a great asset. The playbarn with its pool tables, table tennis and other games has been great for kids of all ages and is especially handy when it does occasionally rain.
