Many thanks Robin & Shelagh for allowing us to stay in your lovely chalet. It was fantastic to see another part of France. The surrounding area was stunning with beautiful views. Can’t wait to revisit.


The modernized property provide every thing one could wish for in modern facilities. These facilities were excellent also for disabled people. Evenings spent on the balcony watching the sun go down were idyllic, to watch the sun come up again at breakfast time, was even better. Hope to come again and relax again.

It is a beautiful holiday home, very comfortable and well equipped. Your recommendations were great:- we canoed down the Dordogne to Brivesac with Apache canoes, and spent another fun day at Aubazine doing Acrobranche. We also loved the caves at Padirac and the beautiful restaurant and Gardens on the lake at Auriac. We also spent lots of time at 'le Splash', so the kids loved it and so did the adults.

Christine and Geoff Emery 9th September 2012

We just loved being here. Thanks for letting us come and stay.

We had a lovely time doing nothing. Please can we book 2 weeks for the same time next year.

John & Christine, Trevor & Sue August 21st - 28th 2013

Thank you Robin and Shelagh for sharing Le Chalet with us. We had a super week exploring the area and using your suggestions for visits. The house is a lovely, very well equipped base, a real home from home.

Had a great week. Weather was tremendous - dare I say too hot!

Lunch at local Auberge was good, trip to Jardin Sothys also good, lunch in their café good too. Lovely cottage well set up. Hopefully we will return to this idyllic spot again.

Sally, John and family(3 children) August 2014

The children loved playing on the swings and running around the meadow. The Chalet is well equipped for family living and there is plenty to do and see in the locality.

Beautiful Chalet in Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at this lovely chalet, on the edge of a small village in a rural location but with all the basic amenities that you would need. The Chalet was idea for us as a family of four with my son in a wheelchair. He was able to access all the downstairs and outside spaces, the bathroom was great. We spent many lazy days on the terraces enjoying the sunshine, views and peace & quiet. This is a gem.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Guests are often surprised that there is so much on offer especially the proximity of the shop/bakery, auberge and post office. The property is in a quite position on the edge of the village yet there are plenty of places of interest and beaches close by. Robin and Shelagh Wilcox.

The Chalet looked even better when seeing the real thing than it had in the pictures on the web site, on the edge of the village with a lovely view from the terrace, and very well equipped. We are grateful to the owners for all their help and suggestions to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We would definitely recommend the property. The village too is delightful with post office, small but well equipped village store, Auberge and beautiful views, including distant mountains. We had many lovely walks directly from the Chalet as well as some further afield. The town of Argentat, 20 minutes drive away, has many good restaurants including the superb Saint-Jacques where we went to celebrate a birthday - not a picturesque setting, but the food was exquisite. The quay at Argentat is so pretty with a number of places to eat, and the Logis Hotel Le Sablier du Temps was very welcoming - to the extent that having had a very good lunch there we were able to use their swimming pool for the rest of the afternoon. There is also a good public outdoor pool on the outskirts of Argentat open from 1 July till end August. Beaulieu-sur-Mer is another idyllic looking town not too far away on the river with its buildings reflected in the water. The Menu du Jour is a good value choice at any of the restaurants, and we enjoyed many during our days out in the beautiful countryside and gems of villages!

Just perfect for relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This year was our 3rd visit. As the advert said, the area is very beautiful and there are lots of walks you can do from the house.

It is well equipped and comfortable. The terrace area is just great for eating out as the sun shines on it most of the day.

great accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Chose this gite based on its wheelchair access and it did not disappoint. The shower room could do with a better shower chair and grab rails but apart from that it is a great place. Loved spending time on the decking and the local auberge served up great food. Would recommend to disabled travellers.

Chose this gite based on it being wheelchair accessible and it did not disappoint. The shower room needed a better shower chair and grab rails but apart from that everything was fine. The decking was great and ate every meal outside, the local auberge also served up pretty decent food. Lovely area and would recommend it to other disabled travellers.

From the Owner

The Correze is often described as France's best kept secret. Having spent several holidays touring France in our caravan we discovered this secret for ourselves and bought our own little piece of it. The surrounding countryside is diverse with splendid rivers, lakes, forests, mountains and picturesque towns and villages.
