About Theresa Phillips

We have lived in France for almost 8 years having previously renovated a Mill House in Confolens in 2002 and purchasing our barn in 2005. Andy renovates properties and I have my own treatment room within our home for beauty therapy. We live in a tiny hamlet comprising of ten houses and we have endeavoured to learn as much as we can about the french way of life, in order for us to try to fit into the community. As long as you attempt to speak some french, it is very much appreciated and welcomed by all of the locals.

We have one friendly dog called Millie whom we have rescued since we have been living here.

This year we would like to start building a couple of tree houses for guests and next year we're hoping to install a full size swimming pool.

Theresa Phillips purchased this cottage in 2008

Wonderful Spot for a Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at La Grange Ancienne at the start of August, it was fantastic. The gite itself is great, it was clean and clearly well looked after. The kitchen was well stocked and big enough to use on a daily basis, with a proper table and a little sofa so you can be sociable while cooking, the lounge was comfortable, with plenty of spac,e a good tv and a selection of DVDs and books, should that be what you want from your holiday.

The bedroom was fantastic, nice and big and comfortable and with good views over the local area (the four windows made great viewing points for the enormous thunderstorm we had one evening).

The pool is lovely for cooling off and relaxing and there is plenty of outdoor furniture if you want to spend the evening eating outside enjoying the sometimes spectacular sunsets.

The owners are extremely welcoming and friendly and very happy to help on the rare occasions that we had any questions, even the dogs made us feel like part of the family.

While there is little within easy walking distance of the gite (shops etc), there is a little village within 10 minutes easy drive where you can get your morning croissants (compulsory for any French holiday in my opinion) and bread, and a couple of hypermarkets a similar distance away just on the outskirts of a town with a reasonable selection of shops and restaurants (I particularly enjoyed the creperie) in St Junien.

A selection of leaflets are available in the gite, including some local walks; one of which goes right past the back gate. These are for the most part well sign posted and very pleasant.

If you want to travel a little, there is a lot to see in the region, both close by and slightly further afield. In the local region are Roman ruins (Cassinomagus), a village destroyed during WWII which has been left as it was left following the raid (Oradour sur Glane), many churches and pretty little villages. There are also loads of things to see within a couple of hours drive (very easy on the fantastic main roads in the region), such as Futuroscope, Roacamadour, le Gouffre de Padirac, the caves at Lascaux and many more.

As you can probably tell, we really enjoyed our holiday, and the gite was the perfect base for it, I could go on for hours about how good it was, but I would just like to say that if you visit you won't regret it.
