“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My husband, our 5 year old daughter and I have now stayed at L'Hirondelle twice. We absolutely love it and the owner/proprieters are as helpful as you could ever ask. My parents have also stayed with them and have said they plan to do so again.
Amenities are all first class, clean and comfortable and the location is a perfect mix of in the middle of nowhere and yet very close to everywhere.
Love it, Love it, thank you again!

“Great Hospitality, Accomodation and Value for Money in a beautiful rural setting”
Reviewed 9 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We (four adults in the same family) stayed at Les Hirondelles for a week at the end of June 2011. We came for a complete rest and got it. The gite is a lovely, spacious old farmhouse, recently modernised and redecorated and incredibly well equipped (fridges, cooker, UK/French TV, CD, Video, BBQ etc)..... It is conveniently situated in the Limousin countryside about a mile from St Matheieu and a well stocked supermarket. There is great deal to do in the area if you like outdoor pursuits such as hiking, swimming, cycling.....with some interesting history nearby (Chalus, Rochechouart and La Rochefoulcauld) The wildlife i(particularly the bird life) is great. Gail and Chris (the hosts) were fantastic. Nothing is too much for them, including pre stocking the fridge with basics as we had arrived late. All in all a great stay. We will definitely be back....no worries.
