“Great stay!”
Reviewed 8 December 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Myself, my husband, our 5 month old daughter and another couple with their 10 month old daughter all travelled over to south of France for a wedding and needed a holiday rental for us all. La Garanne was just perfect.

Driving up you realise how secluded it is and have a massive expanse of grass to lay out on and let the kids play with no worries and a stunning view across the valley - we even saw a magnificent storm brewing from a distance one night.

Stepping inside we discovered great decor, modern but with a rustic , homely feel.

The house was fully equipped with all we needed and Rachel, the owner, was fantastic at answering ANY question small or large before we arrived (or even booked) the property. We even asked her how the mosquitoes were during August - she was happy to reply, which makes booking a family holiday a whole lot easier when you have someone happy to help and assist you.

We had lovely meals out on the patio and although you had to drive to the supermarket and bakeries, they weren't far and the prices were very reasonable. (espeically for wine!)

There are two bedrooms, one a lot larger than the other so we pulled straws to see who had that one - so kind of a shame both couples didn't have an expanse of space. We had a travel cot in the small bedroom but it was a squeeze.

Would definitely book this property again and even more so if they could install a pool?

great place and some fantastic days out around the area.

“Fabulous views, sunshine and easy outdoor living with village life, leisure lake & tourist attractions nearby.”
Reviewed 28 May 2011 for a stay in June 2010

The house is a little cottage attached to a barn in an elevated position overlooking beautiful rolling hills, and yet within easy reach of a village with all the essentials (FANTASTIC patisserie, also boulangerie, supermarket, bank, tabac, even a weekly market with fresh fish, fruit & veg, and cheeses).

The cottage has been well modernised to make the maximum use of space with two bedrooms & bathroom upstairs and a shower room, dining kitchen and living room/3rd bedroom downstairs. The courtyard gets the sun almost all day - we loved sitting at the outdoor dining table for breakfast, or relaxing with a pastis, watching the sky and trees change colour at sunset.

All sorts of local attractions:
* Hautefort with its grand formal chateau and gardens
* Jumilhac le Grand with its fairytale castle and occasional brocante (antiques/junk) market
* St Yrieix la Perche with its summer concerts and exhibitions (we saw the strings of the Berlin Philharmonic on tour and a Picasso exhibition) and the pretty old town (and of course the brocantes)
* Excideuil, with yet another castle, and a good food market
* Arnac Pompadour with Sunday horseracing - it was fun and very easy to place a bet - and market/fair and of course another castle (home of the national stud)...
* Limoges, with the medieval old town (especially their equivalent of the Shambles - a butcher's street like the one at York, with its own tiny chapel) and of course, the porcelain
* Perigueux, with the Roman museum and amphitheatre, and beautiful old town with fantastic restaurants (and brocantes)
* the old forge at Savignac Ledrier - underneath the shadow of a castle (which you can't visit, unfortunately), the recently restored complex and pretty watercourse that powered it (great picnic location)
* the papeterie - the paper mill - open days when you can make your own paper

We loved it, and have been back several times.
