Lovely property in amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

I visited this property with my boyfriend, sister and her boyfriend for a week. The first thing we noted was the setting, it is in a beautiful little hamlet and surrounded by fields, it was very peaceful!

The house itself was very well equipped, we found ourselves wanting for nothing! The beds were extremely comfortable and the fact there was English TV kept us entertained on the evenings we stayed in.

We visited the local supermarket, just a few minutes away in Oradour and found this to have everything we needed, we also took the time to visit the ruins of Oradour while we were there which made for an interesting day out. We also visited the local Zoo - Parc Reyou, which we would all recommend. It is a wonderful zoo with many animals and made for a really nice day out. It isn't too expensive or busy and was only around a 20 minute drive.

We also took the time to visit Limoges, the nearest large town amongst other excursions. We found the whole area to be very pretty, it is very tranquil.

We would definitely recommend the property to anyone wishing a break to France, there is plenty around to do and a lot of brochures and pamphlets provided in the house for inspiration. The property has a lake which, although none of us fish, we did go and have a look around and i'm sure any keen fishermen would be more than happy with! We will hopefully find the time to visit again in the near future, for us we wanted a relaxing break and we certainly got it.

From the Owner

We bought our house in the picturesque Haute Vienne because the area offers peace, tranquillity and beautiful summer weather. This enables us to escape the intensity of a normal busy life in England. You cannot fail to be relaxed and feel recharged after spending a short while here. Although it is a very peaceful area there are many local places of interest including Lac Saint Pardoux, Park Reyou Zoo and the historic city of Limoges with its porcelain factories and Old Town.
