It has one bedroom with one double & one single bed. Also room for a cot. It has a tv. Entrance opens onto the flowered garden.

Why Rachel Lowe chose Creuse

We bought Le Chez in 1997 and moved here permanently in 2000. It took one man 2 years to restore the cottage, learning a lot in the process.

What makes this house unique

Space & tranquility. Cycling/walking tracks run directly from the property. Surrounded by land which we own, much of it wooded.

Lovely, relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was lovely and clean and in an idyllic rural setting with great walks from the property. Rachel and Jamie were really welcoming and couldn't do enough for us and were great company when we enjoyed a lovely meal made by Rachel. The lake at Anzeme is super for a day out as is Oradour sur Glane. Auberge des pecheurs restaurant at La Celle Dunoise was recommended by Rachel and the food was delicious. We will definitely return to La Grange but for longer next time!

We had a wonderful time at Le Chez...the property is absolutely gorgeous! We loved being in such a quiet peaceful place and I have already recommended it to other people. The owners make you feel right at home and the gite is clean and comfortable. A++++++++ all the way!

Excellent, would stay again

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described, clean and comfortable. The location is very quiet and rural yet only a short walk out of the village. Only five minutes off the motorway network. Great location for exploring the beautiful Limousin countryside. It is a comfortable days drive from the channel crossings.

The owners Jamie and Rachel are very friendly and helpful.

Get away from it all.....

  • 5 of 5

A delightful and beautiful setting awaits the visitor to Rachel and Jamie's charming farmhouse conversion. They are a lovely couple who have found a sanctuary amongst gorgeous rolling hills of green trees and forest. The farmhouse has been lovingly restored and has every comfort including WIFI. Nearby are a choice 3 gorgeous, tranquil lakes with fabulous swimming areas and a cafe on each beach, perfect for our 3 year old son. As a keen cyclist it is arguably one of the nicest places I have ridden a bike, virtually car free and endless rolling roads though forests, valleys and gorges.

Highly recommended for a holiday away from the madding crowd!

Charming, exquisitely quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year, so we had a good idea what to expect. The owners warm welcome and hospitality was once again highly appreciated by us.

We have been coming to this part of France for the past few years and this happens to be a great location situated in the heart of the peaceful French countryside.

It is ideal for exploring the charming towns and villages in the area and, this year we discovered one of the many lakes in the region, which happened to be within easy walking distance of our accommodation.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends - and we're looking forward to experiencing more of the same next year.
