“A totally delightful place to spend a week”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Well provisioned, Self-contained comfortable cottage with great internet access. Hosts have put a lot of thought into presenting nearby attractions, and into provisioning the cottage. Delightful village with ample to see and do nearby. Good local restaurants. Within driving distance to Limoges and to Orator, (poignant monument to a large regional village massacred during WW!!). We explored the ample pre-history - Dolmans. Menhirs, Chaotic rocks; and walked in ancient forests near the lake and river. Weather was great in November.
Hosts are warm and welcoming, and fair in their dealings. A totally delightful place to spend a week ( or more). Recommended.

Thank you so much Walter and Lyndal for such lovely comments. It was a pleasure to meet you, and we are really pleased you managed to get out and about all over the region. So much so in fact that you made us feel tired seeing your coming and going over the week. We hope you will be able to get back this way again one day. Best Wishes, Linda @ Sam

We really enjoyed your company over the Summer, and wasn't it a great Summer, weather wise. It was lovely that you were able to get out and about all over the area, and that you felt so at home.

“Great relaxing get away.”

Spent a great relaxing week at Mailhac Sur Benaize with the family ( 3 small children). Great weather, lovely small but cosy cottage, clean and will everything we needed, including wifi.

Area is lovely, with great weather and plenty to do if needed, or just relax in the garden with a BBQ and a bottle of wine.

Can't wait to go back!

“Beautiful location, fully equipped self catering holiday let, that felt like we were home from home.”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a lovely holiday cottage set in a quaint village. It is close to the A20 if travelling from Limoges airport. Its location is also close to local amenities for everyday items.
The owners Sam & Linda were wonderful, very helpful, friendly and informative. We had a relaxing stay at the cottage and we would definitely recommend it. This is a holiday let which is reasonable priced, well worth the money.
