The property is situated in a hamlet with very helpful caretakers on hand if you need them and unobtrusive if you don't and we were very grateful that they were able to shop for basic provisions for us as we arrived on a Sunday.The property is well furnished, good shower and well equipped kitchen. Mattress and pillows should be replaced....

Management response:

The cottage was dried out and aired with no lasting effects. We do not advertise the property as having WiFi as there is no land-line. Most people...

About the neighbourhood
Lying roughly 1 h drive to the East of Limoges and the A20, the Millevaches Plateau is an area of natural beauty which is criss crossed with numerous footpaths, cycle routes and mountain-biking trails which can be equally explored on foot or in the saddle. The regional tradition of stone masonry is evident in the many granite crosses, wells and fountains marking the ancient routes as well as in the buildings, bread-ovens and medieval bridges. The Medieval towns of Eymoutiers, Treignac and Meymac are not far away. The lakes near Treignac, Ambrugeat and Vassiviere all have water sports activity centres and, in July and August, the lovely sandy beaches have swimming areas patrolled by lifeguards. While the Vézère and the Vienne rivers offer more adventurous Canoe and Kayaking excursions. Sout... more
