Le Potager is the smaller of our two gites at La Belardiere. So called because it overlooks the vegetable garden, Le Potager enjoys a pretty walled patio leading to its own private garden, benefiting from the shade of a large walnut tree (which can be very welcome in the height of the summer!). Le Potager shares the near 2 hectares of grounds of La Belardiere with our other gite, Le Verger. This includes a large walled orchard, the pool and sun terrace, games area (boules, table tennis, table football, badminton and garden games) as well as a wood and large field to the rear with wonderful views over the river Creuse Valley.

Inside there is an open plan kitchen/dining area with fully fitted kitchen and separate lounge area. The downstairs floors are tiled throughout and the ceilings are high, giving a genuine feeling of space. The downst...

Le Potager's setting is beautiful and the cottage is full of charm, as you would expect in many a French building. What makes this wonderful is the way Kath and Roger have retained all of the charm whilst beautifully renovating the accommodation. The finish is superb in every room, and this is a truly comfortable place to unwind. Every possible...

Having travelled and stayed in France over many years La Beladiere is the pick of the bunch! Fantastic location, superb accommodation and attention to detail are just a few of the superlatives that can be afforded. Kath & Roger are wonderful hosts with a genuine willingness to help with your stay and travel plans. Numerous chateau's within east reach. Great...

Wonderful family holiday for 15 so using all accommodation . Everything was perfect. We all loved the swimming pool especially the children. The whole place is so safe for them. Kath and Roger could not do enough for us, from arranging a birthday meal to be cooked. By a local,chef, a birthday cake, bike rides, canoe trips, sheep shearing and...

About the neighbourhood
The village of St Remy sur Creuse is 2 km away, or a picturesque 30 minutes walk through the woods. The settlement dates back a thousand years and is the site of a fascinating series of cave dwellings set into the rocks above the main village. Guided visits are available and there are a number of organised events throughout the year.

The village also boasts a newly refurbished Auberge, offering a range of traditional cuisine at very reasonable prices – or simply a refreshing drink as you watch the world go by.

The larger towns of Descartes (birthplace of philosopher Rene Descartes) and Dange St Romain (both 5 km) offer a full range of facilities including supermarkets, boulangeries, pharmacies, and banks. Bustling Descartes market, held on Sunday mornings, draws people from miles around...
