Guestbook comments from the owner

Aldridge Family: The house was a fabulous place for the family to relax, I have never stayed in such a well equipped house, even more than my own. A wonderful holiday.



Somerset/Banks: Thank you for a lovely short break. We had a great time relaxing by the pool.The setting is just right & we were made to feel very welcome. Perhaps see you again sometime!



Phillips Family: What a lovely house in a lovely setting! Kids loved the pool and the animals; we loved the quiet and the warm welcome.



Team Chapman: We have had an absolutely fabulous two weeks. Setting is incredibly idyllic. Its been great to see the kids truly 'free-range'. The hightlights have been the night markets at Segur Le Chateau & St Pardoux Corbier; great food, drink & entertainment from the locals. The house is old and charismatic, the Hosts; warm, friendly, knowledgeable.

A beautiful period farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

...set in a quiet hamlet surrounded by countryside.

Our host, Debbie, was so welcoming and kind. The home baked goodies and welcome pack were very well received! Debbie even supplied us with freshly picked cucumbers during our stay.

The pool is fantastic, with lovely views and well screened. The pool was impeccably clean and we know how much work goes into that!

Our daughter, son-in-law, 18 month old grandson and us all stayed together and were able to completely chill out for a week. We hardly wanted or needed to go anywhere.

The farmhouse is spacious, well furnished and equipped, and very clean.

Thank you Debbie for a lovely, chilled-out stay. We would love to come again.

Linda, Sam, Leila, Paul and little Charlie (who sends you another one of his charming blown kisses).

Farmhouse in Figeas

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, idyllic location. The farmhouse was spotless, it contains everything you could possibly need for a family holiday.

Beautiful surroundings for the children to explore and run around. Our children ( 2 and 4 yrs old) loved the outdoor pool and feeding the lambs.

Debbie was a fabulous, friendly host, making sure we had everything needed. The welcome pack was also most appreciated!

It was also the perfect location to experience French markets, lovely restaurants and days out.

We loved our family holiday at the farmhouse- you couldn't not!

Outstanding hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

No review or thesaurus full of synonyms can ever adequately describe this idyllic gite and it's fantastic owners, Debbie and Graham, who can't do enough to make your stay brilliant.......

The place and setting are simply beautiful.......

Fantastic welcome on our arrival, with a glass or two of wine to break the ice !!!

Great day out at the races at Pompadour, and a tremendous night out at the ' marche de nuit' at Segur le Chateau followed by a number of days by the pool....

Thanks Debbie and Graham for a wonderful time, and looking forward to seeing you next summer.

Farmhouse in Figeas

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic property in a beautiful spot. The pictures on the website don't do it justice, as it was much larger than we were expecting. The children loved the outdoor space and the pool and it's a perfect property for a young family (our children are 6, 8 & 10). There's loads to see and do in the surrounding area and it's not a very touristy area, so no crowds to deal with. Our highlight was canoeing on the Vereze and the children also enjoyed the zoo. The night markets were a great way to mix with locals and sample the regional specialities.

Farmhouse in Figeas

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a wonderful holiday in this beautiful farmhouse. The photos on the website do not do it justice, it is far more spacious. The farmhouse has been beautifully restored by the owners to a very high standard, and is very well equipped. The setting is picturesque, and very peaceful. The land adjoining the property allows the children to have lots of freedom, with a lovely pool to cool down in too.

Our children (6&2), loved everything about this property, the land, pool, house, chickens, dogs, & kittens, and Debbie and Graham. Debbie and Graham could not have been better hosts, providing us with everything we needed and more, without invading our space.

It's a lovely area to explore, great places to walk and cycle from your front door. Good places for children to visit - chateaus, aquarium, zoo.

In the words of our 6 yr old son " the farmhouse, and Debbie and Graham are awesome!"

Location

From the Owner

We decided to move out to France to find that quality of life that many of us lose over time. We feel we are very lucky to live in such a stunningly beautiful area, it's peaceful & calming but with an abundance of things to go do if you so wished. Only being 20 minutes drive from the A20 motorway makes it perfect for easy access and a straight run to the north or the south.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Coussac Bonneval at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Coussac Bonneval at 3 Kilometres Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Day at the Races:- Pompadour has great horse racedays, adults are approx 6€ & under 14's are free. Great family day out.

Fancy Flying:- the airports at Brive and Limoges offer flying lessons, hang-gliding and other related activities. Brive and Limoges are around 45 minutes drive away.

Your flight will take you over spectacular scenery of Chateaux, rivers, lakes and hills ... It will make your day something to remember forever.

Star Gazing:- We are perfectly located for a spot of star gazing. Take a recliner by the pool and lie back under the moonlit sky to gaze at the Milky Way and the thousands of stars , or take a romantic stroll under the light of a blue moon down to the waterfall at midnight.

We have an observatory approximately a 30-minute drive away, for those who take it more seriously.
