'La Maison de la Souris' is a beautiful, detached and private stone-built French farmhouse recently converted and equipped to a very high standard to provide exceptional holiday accommodation in the Haute Vienne, part of the Limousin region. The addition of a nine metre in-ground pool and hot tub help make this property the perfect location for your holiday in France. The property, which stands in 2.8 hectares of land, has four large bedrooms (three doubles, one twin and including the signature bedroom... a vaulted 9m room with a walk in wet room with free standing bath), a spacious family bathroom, a double height lounge equipped with Digital TV, Sky+ HD satellite, DVD player, free WiFi internet access and even an HP Printer for the day when you've forgotten to print your Ryanair boarding card. A wood burning stove will keep you warm and toasty when the evenings begin to cool. Then there is a kitchen to die for... 9m long, beautiful oak flooring, a three-oven Range master duel fuel cooker, a large fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer along with every other convenience you would expect. Outside, the property overlooks a beautiful new 9x4m pool, an accompanying seven seat hot tub, outdoor dining furniture and loungers and a large gas BBQ. There are even hi-fi speakers so you can provide your own soundtrack to your time by the pool. The summer weather in this part of France has more in common with the south of France and with temperatures regularly over 30 degrees a pool should be high on your list of 'must haves'. Situated in a peaceful hamlet with views of rolling countryside, the property is 3km from the nearest village which is served by a restaurant, boulangerie and village store. Chalus is the closest town, being 5km to the west and providing a large supermarket, restaurants, butchers, bakers and other shops as well as two ATMs. Being in French lake-land, there are also several freshwater lakes in the area. Most have man-made sandy beaches and other leisure facilities and are very popular. Whether your interest is in walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding... or you just like the idea of relaxing and doing as little as possible in a beautiful part of the world then 'The Mouse House' is the ideal venue to make your holiday special.
**New for 2015... our games and party room which provides a 7' slate bed pool table, 55" Smart TV with Bluetooth soundbar, an air hockey table, plenty of comfy seating, party lights and an additional bathroom**
Thank you for reading about my French holiday home. I fell in love with this part of France some years ago and when 'The Mouse House' became available I knew that it would be the perfect place for me and then my guests to enjoy and appreciate fully the beauty of the Haute Vienne. Wherever I have traveled, I have always expected high standards and in renovating and furnishing my home I have aimed to emulate those standards... thus, the bedrooms, the living spaces, the pool are all as I would like to find them were I someone else's guest. I love it here, I hope you do too.
Andrea Field purchased this farmhouse in 2013
Love the location, so relaxing and unspoilt
Janie said, "Maison Souris is a recently renovated Farm building in a rural setting. The house and grounds are modern well looked after and furnished with quality furniture and fittings and good attention to detail, supplied by Andrea's business in the UK. It was very comfortable and close to the town of Chalus where there were restaurants, shops and a supermarket.
The market in Thriviers was gorgeous. The children enjoyed riding along the river whilst we had a drink over looking the fairytale castle in St Julien le Grande, the go cart track nearby was second to none.
Andrea the owner was very prompt in her replies and incredibly accommodating. We organised our holiday from New Zealand she made this part of our journey easy. We had a very relaxed holiday after doing the sights of Paris and London. We could have done with another couple of days"
I was looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun and I got it. The house, the surroundings and the peace were perfect. La Maison de la Souris is very well equipped, well thought and beautifully decorated. Having stayed in many gites, they can be sometimes disappointing with the quality of the furniture and kitchen equipment but not in this house. It is obvious that the owners have taken care to make it a home from home. We hardly moved from the house as it had everything we were looking for. The adults were able to relax with good books only interrupted by dips in the pool and my teenage son had fun in the pool but also with the Xbox and pool/air hockey table as well as listening to his music (he never once said he was bored!). I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY.
My family and I stayed at the Mouse House and really didn't want to leave after a week!
If you want a relaxed holiday staying in beautiful accommodation with great facilities in a rural location then I can't fault this place.
We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing holiday in the most luxurious farmhouse in one of the most beautifully scenic parts of France I have ever visited. All our needs as a family with two children were thoughtfully catered for, from the pool to the hot tub to the air hockey table and even the Xbox - our children were spoilt. The farmhouse was stunning with everything you could ever need to make your stay like a home from home! The surrounding area was a delight with plenty to see and do (check out Espace Hermeline with it's inland beach, velo rail and 20 metre zip wire over the lake just 5 minutes away in Bussière-Galant). I can't recommend 'Le Maison de la Souris' enough and we will definitely be returning again soon. Thank you Andrea for making our holiday so perfect!
