About the property


Le Grand Juvet was originally built as the stud farm to the local Chateau and is a magnificent collection of stone buildings complete with tower. We live on site in the tower so are here to greet you and help with anything you need to make your holiday a great one, yet you have a the privacy of your own courtyard and pool. We have set out to provide spacious accommodation with peaceful, private outside space where we hope you will relax and enjoy the lovely scenery. If you can drag yourself away from the property we are in a great situation for exploring some stunning countryside. We have swimming lakes, beaches, marked walking and cycling trails all within 10 minutes and just a five minute drive from us we have the use of a private fishing lake.

About Maxine

We have lived in France for several years now and run two businesses, our gites and also a tree surgery business. Both of these allow us to make the most of the lovely countryside and glorious weather. We look forward to welcoming you to Le Grand Juvet.

Maxine purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Maxine chose Limoges area

We fell in love with this part of France. Its a beautiful area with lots of trees and lush countryside. The locals really could not have been nicer to us and we have been made so welcome. We often come home to find a neighbour has left surplus veg on our doorstep. Lots of people say its like the UK was 40 years ago when nobody had to lock doors and everyone was keen to help everyone else. Oh and coming from Scotland the weather has been a huge bonus, proper seasons and lots of sun in summer time!

Notes on accommodation: Having sampled a number of gites ourselves over the years we have set out to provide something that we struggled to find - spacious accommodation with large rooms, nicely decorated, well furnished, more than enough equipment and a private, pretty oustide area to drink a glass of wine and admire the view. We hope that is what we have achieved. Both properties have been recently renovated / restored. In the barn we have retained the stone walls, exposed beams and many quirky features which allude to its previous use. In the farmhouse we have tried to use wallpaper and paint colours which are sympathetic to its proportions and character. We have animals on site - horses, chickens and ducks. They are housed well away from your accommodation but for those guests who wish to be involved with the animals they are more than welcome to join me in my daily duties of feeding, watering, collecting eggs, grooming horses etc. Outside: Each property has its own private courtyard with outdoor table and chairs, parasol, plunge pool and BBQ, accessed directly from your accommodation. In total we have 15 acres of land. The orchard is a lovely place so sit and take in the view. The entire property is securely fenced and gated so children are safely contained and have plenty space to expend some energy! We have mountain bikes for guests use.

Simply bliss. We stayed at Juvet for a week with the family. Bit if a mission to get there, more my dodgy driving and getting lost on the scenic route than their fault, but having a car with a good sat nav or a good map will get you there safely. The location is rural but more than perfect for the weeks stay. First impressions are WOW (yes in capitals). The interior decor is beautiful and Maxine and Darren have spent time, money and glorious ideas getting it right. Each room is just spot on in rustic French farm charm. Downstairs is nicely laid out and the kitchen has everything you need, the downstairs bathroom and bedroom are huge and the bed is very comfortable. The upstairs is lovely with a double and two singles room plus another bathroom. The outside is lovely with rolling countryide and a delightful pool, big enough for the kids to spend their hours in there. The hidden gem is the games room which the kids found out with table tennis, darts, table football etc. This kept them entertained. However Maxine and Darren are great, they allowed my lot to feed/take out the horses which they loved especially Scooby. They happily spent time talking with us and telling us what was around. For my boy the joys of capturing little lizards just made his day! Night time it gets very dark with no light pollution and we encountered a terrific thunder storm, with no light pollution it was amazing and just showed you how rural you are. For food shopping as said just doen the road is St Yriex La Perche are a number of supermarkets and petrol stations. For us it was a great spot as you are close enough to most things within a half hour drive or sometimes sightly longer. For kids take them to Bussiere Galant and Espace Hermeline you have the Go Ape style climbing, Velo rail for Cycling, 400m zip wire across a lake and swimming areas if you wish. It really was great fun and an experience . Further afield and near Limgoges is Ordour-sur-Glane, a step back in time WW2 village that will get you thinking - more of pondering time than a funfilled adventure for the kids but worth a visit to explain. Also have a trip to Brantmone a lovely town with a market on fridays and a beautiful place to visit for both clidren and parents, if you want to do Kayaking - book it early! As said it really was a lovely place to stay and everything was great, so good and welcoming that we had to buy a gift for Maxine and Darren for being great hosts and to say thank you.

Fabulous, spacious, idyllic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our two weeks at La Roche l'Abeille and everything about it. It was lovely to have such large rooms, particularly the dining kitchen and bathroom. The pool is very private and in a beautiful setting with the owner's 3 horses in the field beyond.

The accommodation is very well equipped and very clean and we were extremely comfortable.

We would not hesitate to come and stay again in the future.

Thank you Maxine and Darren for being such warm and friendly hosts.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our dog Riley, spent 2 great weeks in the Farmhouse. A spacious property that became our home from home. For us it was a perfect way for us to forget about the hustle and bustle of our home town. It's rural setting meant that days could go by before you even heard the sound of a passing car. We particularly like exploring new locations and walks nearby for Riley.

The property has everything you need. It was neat and tidy and everything in working order. Darren and Maxine (owners) were on hand for useful advice and a good natter. Absolutely lovely hosts.

I would without doubt recommend this property to others.

Petit coin de paradis dans la nature

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour entre amis chez Maxine et Darren. La maison est spacieuse, très joliment décorée et parfaitement équipée. Entouré de nature c'est un endroit parfait pour des vacances reposantes et ressourçantes au grand air. Maxine et Darren sont adorables, aux petits soins et très respectueux de l'intimité de leurs hôtes. La piscine et la terrasse sont sans vis à vis, vous avez l'impression d'être seul au milieux de la nature! De jolis villages et de belles balades aux alentours. Les propriétaires vous renseignerons sur tout ce qu'il y a à faire. Un petit coin de paradis que nous recommandons vivement!

Lots of lake beaches and lake swimming available within a 15 minute drive. During the summer all have a life guard and there are various other activities/facilities on offer, diving platforms, pedaloes, cafes, velo rail, canoe hire etc. We can advise on the best ones for your needs.


An easy 40 minute drive from Limoges airport. An easy hours drive from Brive airport. Approx two hours from Bergerac and Poitiers airports.

Approx seven hours drive from the ferry ports. The French motorways are excellent so it really is quite a pleasant trip!


4km to nearest village (which has an excellent restaurant open for lunches and dinner), 14km to the medieval town of St Yrieix la Perche which provides a choice of four large supermarkets, many restaurants to suit all budgets, bars, a weekly market and an excellent selection of shops. A new leisure centre has opened which offers indoor and outdoor pools with flumes and wave machine for the kids and spa facilities and gym for the grown ups. There are numerous Chateaux to visit locally.
