From our guests...

Perfect again. Thank you both.

The Correze department of France

We are in the Correze
The department of Correze forms part of the Limousin region of France. From the mysterious moors of the Millevaches plateau to the rolling hills of the Pays de Brive with its mild climate and verdant valleys, the Correze offers a great variety of landscapes. It is still relatively unknown as a holiday destination. Here's your chance to holiday in the green heart of France.

The Cottage in detail

What you'll find at the Cottage

The house itself has been brought back to life with soft colours, comfortable furniture and a contemporary style that embraces the old while discreetly offering 21st century comforts.  There are three luxurious bedrooms: two have kingsize beds and the third has two singles which can be connected to make, again a kingsize.  Cotton bedding and large fluffy towels are provided (including swimming towels).  There are also two good camp-beds.  For very small children we have a travel cot, and various other necessities, please enquire to save yourselves some luggage space.

There is a luxurious bathroom with an enormous shower.  Soaps and shower gels are provided.

The kitchen is more than fully equipped with appliances, including a microwave, and various machines such as a food-mixer.  A welcome pack awaits you when you arrive so that you don't have to shop en-route.  The kitchen is always stocked with necessities such as olive oil, coffee and tea and various other cooking "must-haves".

Notes on accommodation

Our house is situated within the same hamlet and our tumble dryer is at your disposal. We have two camp-beds available if desired, however, please take into account that all the dining tables seat six. They could, however, be appropriate for small children and there is room in the twin room for the extra beds. The downstairs WC accommodates the twin room during the night hours. The second two bedrooms are upstairs on the same floor as the bathroom.

The Cottage is also a wonderful house for winter breaks. It is fully heated with radiators throughout and underfloor heating in the downstairs. Wood is provided for the log fire and the cook can provide you with sumptuous meals. Walking in winter is a lovely experience. The air is crisp and dry, and we have lots of sunshine. The views are longer without the leaves on the trees. There is a "western" riding stable 10 minutes away and it is open all year round. The whole area is very peaceful in the winter and autumn months.
