Set in a very tranquil and rural area, one of three gites, with just the English owners who are on hand if required for information and assistance and one retired French neighbour. We are surrounded by fabulous countryside, dotted with lovely French villages and towns with lots of local markets and places to explore and enjoy. The perfect base for house-hunting or for walking, cycling, fishing, photography, painting, reading, playing games ..... or just sitting and enjoying the garden where over the last year wildlife visitors have included; Deer, Red Squirrels, Hoopee, Golden Oriole, Turtle Doves, Woodpeckers - Green, Black and various spotted, Nightingales, Stone Marten and even hedgehogs. The Creuse is one of the least populated areas of France, has been identified as having the cleanest air in the whole of France, has also been voted in the top ten of the happiest places to live in France and the quiet roads in this area make any outing a pleasure. Fabulous part of France. As this is such a rural location we benefit from no light pollution, providing fabulous night skies. Walk routes, maps and guided walks can be available, please ask for information at the time of booking. We also offer personalised walking holidays and short breaks that can be tailored to your specific requirements and can include lunch stops at a variety of local restaurants providing a unique experience of this beautiful area. Bed linen is included in the price but we are unable to offer towels. Please note that there are wooden stairs to the first floor that are not protected by stairgates. The gites is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems that prevent them from using stairs. A €100 damage/security deposit will be required on arrival. This will be returned to you when the gite has been checked prior to departure. The Local Taxe De Sejour (Holiday Tax) is currently set at 2% of the nightly cost (to a maximum of 1.65€ per night per person) plus 10% additional tax for each person over the age of 18 (children under the age of 18 are exempt). For example: A family of three with one child staying for a week in peak holiday season, would pay a total of 14.98€. The gite does not have central heating but we can provide a portable heater at extra cost. Please ask for further information if required.More

How to get there
Access to Le Montinazeau is easy and we can be reached within a day using a network of good roads leading from the ports of Calais (approx. 6 hours), Caen (under 5 hours), Cherbourg (approx. 6 hours) or Saint Malo (approx. 5½ hours). We are situated roughly 25 minutes off the main A20 Motorway. The Airport of Limoges is only one hour away if you want to fly-drive (a car really is essential to fully appreciate the area).
