If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing time to unwind from everyday stress then this is the place for you! Equally, if you are looking for activities or places to visit then La Varache is an excellent base from where to explore the surrounding countryside and attractions. The accommodation in the well equipped and furnished Gite at La Varache caters for up to 15 people and is set in 45 acres of pasture and woodland surrounded by forestry land. The river Vienne runs alongside the property and is excellent for fishing. La Varache was used by the French resistance during WW2. They blew up the train viaduct in March 1943.

Photos and details are available at the local Resistance Museum. On the property you will find a variety of small farm animals ranging from chickens, geese, ducks and rabbits which are all free range. We also have American Quarter Horses. La Varache is a great location to stay with your horses, spend the day out riding and come back in the evening to your own gite or as a one night stop over on a longer trek! We can either stable your horses or put them out to grass. La Varache has been tastefully converted from a 15th century house incorporating many modern facilities along side original old world beams and wood burning stoves. There are two kitchens, two lounges, two decks and is perfect for family reunions, parties, etc. The gite can accommodate from as little as one to fifteen people. There are Bar-B-Q areas for those who want to cook out at the same time enjoying a glass or two of wine while watching the sun go down. The gites can be divided in two and rented on a separate basis or booked together. The gite has full central heating for all year round letting. There is “Sky TV free to air” in both lounges and wifi internet access. Both decks face west and are a delightful for evening soirees. More

We so enjoyed our travels to La Varache. From the patio of the gites, the view of the beautiful valley is serene and relaxing. There are many walking paths with spectacular views of the valley and from the tops of the hills you can see...More

About the neighbourhood
The local village of Eymoutiers has a produce market every Saturday (as well as 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month) where you can wander by the many stalls to purchase a variety of delicious local cheeses and homegrown produce. Don't worry about parking. Eymoutiers hasn't yet heard of pay car parks or meters! In the east of the Haute Vienne, Eymoutiers sits next to the river Vienne. Once a town of hide-tanners, many of the houses retain the original tanning lofts. The Romaesque church of St Etienne, the impressive Mairie and the Libary are just some examples of the beautiful architecture of the town and of this region. Eymoutiers is well placed for all kinds of recreation. Just 15 minutes’ drive north east of the town is lac de Vassivière, which offers water sports, beaches and swimming...
