La Maison Puy L'Abbe
Reviewed 12 February 2013

The house is only an hours drive from Limoge airport through some picturesque towns and hamlets. Such a scenic setting and not far from Bourganeuf. The house is lovely, it is everything (and more) that the website http://www.bourganeuf.net/ describes it as.

Our room was a nice size with an en suite bathroom - shower and a roll topped bath, both rooms were very quaint with a warm and typically French feel to it. A good view of the countryside from here.

Paul and Joe are great hosts - very friendly and informative. They made our time in the area extremely comfortable

Both breakfast and evening meals were well presented and delicious!
We ate our meals and sat chatting with a glass of wine (or two) whilst sat in front of a log burner... very cosy!

We are looking forward to returning and hope that it's soon!!

Room Tip: We saw all of the rooms, the are all well presented within the house.

The warmth of the welcome from proprietors Paul and Joe more than made up for the unseasonal poor weather during my stay. My en suite room was light and luxurious, with an enormous bathroom which included a roll-top bath and walk-in shower. The room was very comfortable, immaculately clean and fresh, and very well appointed.

La Maison Puy d'Abbe is a large. characterful house that has been transformed into a lovely home from home by the present owners. Paul and Joe are friendly and very helpful, very aware of their guests' needs, without being intrusive. Although work was underway to separate the two previously interconnecting attic bedrooms, this was almost finished and Paul and Joe ensured that there was no disturbance whilst I was there. These will be two more lovely, spacious, rooms very soon.

From every room there are stunning views across rolling hills to the mountains beyond, and these can be enjoyed from several thoughtfully placed seating areas in the huge garden. I was lucky enough to see wild deer running through the fields next to the house and lots of varied bird life.

The breakfasts were delicious and generous, with any variation of the menu available. Joe's 4-course Table d'Hote gourmet dinners were not only varied and beautifully cooked, they were also attractively and artistically presented.

There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding towns and villages, even a lake with beaches! If you are seeking a base for exploring the Limousin region, somewhere to enjoy walking in beautiful countryside, or just a place to unwind with a book while the birds sing, look no further than La Maison Puy d'Abbe.

Room Tip: They are all lovely!

My wife and I were attending a social event in a nearby village and needed somewhere local to stay. La Maison Puy L'Abbe was recommended to us and we were so glad we decided to stop there. The resident proprietors Paul & Joe have turned this charming, character house into an exceptional Chambres et Tables d'Hotes.
On arrival we received a warm welcome from them both and they were most helpful throughout our stay. After showing us our room, they served us a pot of tea and a traditional french fruit slice. This was most welcome and appreciated after our long drive down through France. We stayed in the Le Cloux Suite which has a good sized bedroom with stunning views over the valley and the hills beyond. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and adjoining bathroom is very spacious despite having the luxury of a roll top bath and a large wet area for showering. The dining room like the rest of the house is well presented and has lots of character and is a very enjoyable place to enjoy breakfast or dinner.
Th garden stretches along the front of the house and the hill at the rear. Paul & Joe have created various places where the guests can sit, enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the views or you can follow the zig-zag pathways up the hill into their own small woodland area. From here an even more spectacular panorama awaits you.
Over the years we have stopped at many B & B's, small hotels, etc., in the UK and abroad and we can confidently say that La Maison Puy L'Abbe is one of the best we have found.
