Thankyou for allowing us to stay in your lovely house. We had a very enjoyable holiday. There was lots of space for everybody. The little boys had the train set out all holiday - and spent lots of time in the garden too. We made some interesting visits in the area, but loved coming back to Mousseau! Thanks for everything......Mr & Mrs L, Derbyshire

The Middle of Nowhere!

  • 5 of 5

Mousseau is the perfect place for a large family gathering. We were 12 in all, and there was something for everyone, with a large garden, trampoline, swimming pool, extremely well equipped kitchen, spacious accomodation, and lots of toys to play with! We ate almost every meal out of doors, enjoying the view over the surrounding countryside, and it was so quiet that one member of the family (a city dweller) complained that she couldn't sleep!

We made use of the "reference library" to find local walks, markets to visit, and things to do. We sampled the famous Limousin beef, and bought huge quantities of bread, wine and cheese. We particularly enjoyed a visit to St Dizier, where the local hunt was showing off their horsemanship and the skills of their hounds. Limoges is well worth a visit too, particularly its cathedral, and of course its world-famous china industry.

Despite being in the "middle of nowhere", we had no trouble following the owner's directions. The house was immaculate when we arrived, and I hope we left it in the same condition! I would recommend Mousseau to anyone wanting peace and quiet in a beautiful part of France, and I would like to thank the owners for giving us a superb holiday.

Thank you!
