Grandmont Gites
Reviewed 24 January 2014

After a demanding and stressful year in London, I searched for a peaceful retreat to relax. Grandmont Gites is an incredible find. It's located in the beautiful Mont D' Ambazac in the Limousin region of France. My home away from home was Horseshoe Gite, very cozy and clean, and most importantly for me--dog friendly. The Gite has all modern amenities, including full bath, something I really appreciated. There's quad riding, horseback riding, geocaching, swimming at the gite, along with numerous other activities available throughout this region. Fun, fun, fun! Owner/managers Caroline and Tony go above and beyond the call of duty to make the stay memorable. They are extremely welcoming and very helpful with information for all the day to day needs like grocery, gas, banking, restaurants, shopping, etc., even providing the basics for your arrival. There is even a car available for hire which was an incredible bonus and allowed me to see and experience many details of this region that I would not have been able to see. I had no experience with horses but Caroline, along with Marmalade and Benjie made my horseback riding experience through the surrounding forest totally cool! Both Caroline and Tony are extremely knowledgable on the customs and history, including the religious history, of this amazing region. Activities for this area are unlimited and there really is something for everyone. I came here for peace, culture, history, food, and wine and found all that and more around every corner. I cannot wait to return this summer.

My wife, Maria and me along with our cousins stayed at Grandmont Gites in September 2013. It was spectacular and cosy at the same time. The location is dramatic being as it is - nestled in the picturesque woods of Mont D' Ambazac. We stayed at the Horseshoe Gite. It was clean and well equipped with all modern amenities without losing its rustic and country flavour. Our hosts Tony and his wife Carolien were warm, welcoming and generous hosts. We discovered this place along the way during our driving holiday across France. If we had any regret it was that we did not spend enough time at Tony & Carolien's place. They have enough amenities and activities to keep you occupied for a long break. If you are not into activities, you can sink into the peace and tranquillity the location offers. Surely if we were to visit France again we will give ourselves enough time at this Gite. Would gladly recommend a stay at Grandmont Gites.

Recently stayed at Horseshoe Gite, Grandmont and had a really nice break despite the weather. Caroline & Tony were excellent hosts.

Recommend Tony's evening meals great value for money and very filling.

Plenty to do in the area. The gite has a shared swimming pool and Horse-riding is available.

Even the fact that 'Summer ended' the day after we arrived, could not spoil our stay. The gites are in a really beautiful location, well equipped (Wi-Fi useful for checking weather forecasts!) and the hosts are really friendly and provide lots of info. The forest walks straight from the door are brilliant - don't expect to see anyone else! Made good use of the GPS and the mountain bikes. Also enjoyed relaxing in the large garden and swimming in the nicely warmed pool. Got an unscheduled visit from a deer while sat in the garden. All the gites are in the same building, so you do get to hear other guests - but not a major problem, and you need to drive to get to shops and restaurants, but it's a small price to pay for being in such a tranquil location. Highly recommended.

Just a short 5-day stay for 4 adults. This is the 3rd time for us, which says something when you think how much France has to offer. Tony's cooking has gone up a notch and our arrival meal was the best yet, and better than local Gourmet restaurants. The Horseshoe gite has all you need, the horse riding is ideal for those who prefer 4 legs to 2, the area is perfect for walking and cycling, and the pool and gardens are there for those more restful moments. All boxes ticked. Un sejour tres agreable!!

We are a family of 3, 2 adults and one 11 year old - What a brilliant holiday - the best we've ever had! Tony and Caroline are brilliant hosts and we couldn't have asked for more. The gites are lovely and well equipped and situated in the most beautiful surroundings. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and well thought out with everything you could possibly need for a first night. We all really enjoyed all the activities on site - horseriding, swimming in the immaculate pool, and quad biking and offsite the canoeing and the tree climbing assault course (all organised by Tony and Caroline). Plenty to keep you busy but also the perfect setting for just chilling out. Tony's meals were delicious and superb value. We will definitely be going back. This is a very special place run by very special people who have got it just right.

As a family of 4, 2 Boys and 2 adults, boys were in element having taken the motocross bikes they endlessly explored the surrounding forests. Horses for me. Caroline, Tony and Katie make excellent hosts. Gite was immaculate, welcome pack of obligitory bottle of Rose and french stick very much appreciated. Pool was a lovely temperature "does not take breath away when you step in". Gite also has every kind of pot, pan, utensil that you could possibly need, not the usual token gesture of 1 pot and a couple of utensils.
A really good place to stay to explore the wonderful area, Oradour Sur Glane, Arnac Pompadour for all you horse lovers out there, Uzerche excellent for canoeing, Lac Saint Pardoux everything is within 45 mins of your every need.
I think it is fair to say Grandmont Gites are a very special place to stay.
