If you want to relax in the heart of the countryside, look no further. It's not five star luxury but it ticked all our boxes. Five adults and four children (2,4,5 and 7) had a superb time. The swimming pool area was immaculately kept and the children were captivated by the chickens and turkey at the bottom of the garden. The eggs were as I remember them from my country upbringing 60 years ago, tasty with bright yellow yolks, not like todays offerings. Although deep in the countryside the roads were so quiet it was a joy to drive to the local towns of Gueret, Bourganeuf and La Soutteraine. A vist to Limoges was also worth the drive. The hosts, Bryan and Jane were as helpful as needed without intruding, no request was too much, this despite them having a family medical emergency with their eldest son. Pound for pound the best value gite I have stayed in, For bird watchers this is an excellent place, a family of hoopoes presented themselves for inspection several times, buzzards, kestrels and large numbers of common species were to be seen in abundance. Children will love the pony rides from the local stables - at reasonable prices.

Laurent Party (Review 3) I can only reiterate all the facts again…. The garden & pool area are shared, neither gîte as their own garden only their own private terrace area. The layout of the complex does mean that access to the garden from Gîte 1 (Wisteria Cottage) is via the front of the property and through a gate, this hasn’t proven a problem with any other guests over the last 7 years. All the furniture, appliances and equipment are all in a good state and are all perfectly safe. The cooker & dishwasher have been checked by a professional electrician, who couldn’t find any faults…. So maybe this was just a ploy for a reduction in the rental fee! Can I also say that all other kitchen facilities were used in full (fridge, freezer, microwave, all pots, pans etc.), so in fact both kitchens were used. The deduction for the broken items were for things you agreed to at checkout before you left (Bathroom Blind, Towel Rail, Stained Sheets). Both properties are fully equipped to cater for the capacity stated. Therefore I don’t feel it necessary to have an inventory as such, but I do know when the full quota of items are not there after checkout. We did ask you at checkout if any items were broken but you failed to mention them! I can only assume that you did not fully read our Terms & Conditions, as you would have known what was expected of you as a guest in our property (to leave it clean & tidy without damage), and if you were unsure then you should have asked for clarification. It is just a shame that this group of French guests cannot take responsibility for their actions!
The title of this review is “Bad times” the only bad time experienced is by us accepting this booking.

Laurent (Review 1 of 2) All the equipment is new or replaced when necessary, and all the equipment is safe and fit for purpose. Why would it be otherwise? The oven seemed to have a fault and as soon as it was brought to our attention it was offered to be replaced, but this replacement was refused…. So it can’t have been unsafe! The garden and pool areas are shared between the two cottages, and access from Wisteria Cottage is via the path in front of the cottage and through a small gate, after running the cottages for 7 years now this hasn’t caused a problem for any other guests. Our pool fully complies with French pool security law, with a full pool cover and alarm system, so perfectly safe for families with small children. Full instructions on how to operate the security are given to the lead name at check in, and we are on sight to clean & maintain the pool on a daily basis. We do have a checkout list of basic instructions on how to leave the property, these are just to ask that the property is left clean & tidy, all belongings etc are collected, electric items are switched off extra….. hardly a task! As fully explained is my correspondence with the lead name, part of the caution was retained to cover costs of damage caused, extra cleaning and other fees as per our T&C's which were signed for and agreed. For any potential guests reading this review you will see that is correlates to our other negative review from another member of the same party.
