2 of us spent a night B&B travelling down from Calais to the south of France. The characterful room in the main house is spotlessly clean and equipped with tea and coffee making, with private bathroom accross the hall. Continental breakfast outside overlooking acres of open countryside a million miles away from cheap motorway hotels.

Les Landes is a quiet, charming little property in the midst of Limousine cow pastures. The location is a great base for exploring the small villages with 1000 year old churches and is only 30 minutes away from Limoges and Oradour sur Glane.
Hosts Mandy and Ian are incredibly hospitable and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and fresh veggies from their garden. They were available when we needed them and invisible when we didn't.
The house is small but cozy and comfortable for two with a full kitchen and at a great price.
On Wednesday nights during the summer the nearby town of St. Pardoux Corbier holds a street fete that is not to be missed. Local merchants sell meats, french fries, veggies, fish, breads and ice creams and you can BBQ your dinner at the BBQs provided. Wine and beer flow as a band plays and people dance the night away in an atmosphere of fun and community. Even though my French was limited we still had a fantastic time!
Don't miss the sunsets and the stars at night provided at no extra cost!
