About La Graffeuille

We are Karen and Richard Banks, a couple from Monmouth, South Wales, who now live permanently in France. Karen is a Veterinary Nurse and Richard was a lorry driver. We live with our 3 large, friendly retrievers, and 2 cats.

La Graffeuille purchased this cottage in 2016

Why La Graffeuille chose Montgibaud

We are located in the in the North-west corner of Correze, in department 19, of the Limousin. We drove through this area when travelling to the Midi-Pyrenees to view houses, and loved it so much that we decided to settle here. The Limousin is famous for its beautiful countryside and abundance of lakes.

What makes this cottage unique

As soon as we saw La Graffeuille, we fell in love with the pretty house and blue shutters, and the gite was ripe for renovation. We live in a tranquil, rural community, and it has such a relaxing quality. The views are amazing, and there are all amenities nearby, plenty to do and interesting places to visit. Or just sit and relax at the pool!! We are motorbike-friendly. Pets are welcome by arrangement.

Great find..... a gem!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable gite all you need for a relaxing holiday, delightful location. The owners who live in the main house next door are on hand to help if required and found to be very welcoming and helpful but never intrusive in fact Karen and Richard are great hosts.

We would recommend this gite for a summer holiday or a stay out of season at any time as its well equipped to suit all.

We stayed at this wonderful Gite for two weeks in August with our two girls. Lovely and clean fully equipped with all the cooking essentials you could require. The swimming pool is amazingly clean and cleaned on a daily basis, Has a pool alarm so if the worst was to happen and a child fell in a very loud alarm would sound. As a parent this is total peace of mind. Thr garden is very secure with a swing, badminton net and garden toys to entertain the children.

The Views from the garden are breathtaking.

Richard and Karen are great hosts and always on hand if needed to help with their wealth of local knowledge. I would 100% recommend this property and we will be returning in the future. Thank you Karen and Richard.

The property was excellent

  • 5 of 5

La Graffeuille was beautifully presented with everything you could need and the pool and decking area were perfect. Karen and Richard could not have been more welcoming. The gite is in a very rural area of France and is perfect for a really relaxing, 'away-from-it-all' holiday, but as it's only half an hour away from Limoges airport, it's really accessible. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Great stay in lovely site

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 2 week stay in a delightful gite with lovely contryside views especially from the little balcony. Karen and Richard were very welcoming and helpful throughout the stay. They gave us lots of information about the local area and things to do and helped with arranging a vet for our dog. We all loved the large well maintained pool (with lilos etc) and surrounding decking where we relaxed on the loungers. There is a good sized garden area which is well fenced if you have a dog. I would recommend the gite to others.

Superb gite with fantastic views and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely welcome from Richard and Karen, had a welcome cup of tea with them before being shown around the gite.

The gite is very well equipped, we felt very at home and relaxed, The garden was beautiful and we had sole use of the pool next to the gite. The property is close to the A20 making getting around to local villages and sites very easy. We will certainly go back again, really enjoyed our week. Thank you Karen and Richard,
