About Gilly Mannakee

We moved to the Correze in 1992 and love the area so much that we have bought and renovated 4 lovely holiday properties- Les Fardines is just one of them! Our two children were both born here and are completely bi-lingual, while we enjoy friendships with both French and foreign residents in the area. My husband is a photographer and spends lots of time discovering new areas-both near and far.

Gilly Mannakee purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Gilly Mannakee chose Puy-d'Arnac

Les Fardines sits in a lovely quiet location with stunning views over the valley- we fell in love with the house and hope one day to live in it ourselves when our children leave home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful cottage, very comfortable and everything you could possibly need. Pool and enclosed garden make it perfect for young children. Lots to see in the surrounding area (plenty of advice and suggestions in the cottage guide) and long, balmy evenings in perfect peace and quiet. Gilly is very helpful and we love this place so much we are writing the review while still here!
