Charming home from home gite in the heart of the French countryside, nestled within the ‘Parc Naturel Limousin Perigord’, on the border of Haute Vienne/Dordogne. Large 3 bedroomed barn conversion set in idyllic private grounds with 5 acres of private woodland to explore. Whether you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday off the beaten track, a base from which to explore the beautiful French countryside or house hunting, this comfortable gite is ideal. Sleeping up to 8 people, 2 double rooms with ensuites and 1 bedroom with twin beds and bunkbeds. Shops, supermarkets, fuel, banks etc are only 10 minutes drive away. Lovely winding country roads to explore either walking or cycling. There are lots of activities within ½ hour by car, ie caves, chateaux, horse riding, lakes, adventure parks, paintball, etc, a comprehensive publicity brochure is provided on site and we are only 10 minutes away from the famous Wednesday morning Piegut market. If you are an antique lover or just love a bargain, during the summer months there is always a vide grenier nearby and in the evenings there are weekly markets where you can choose your meal from local produce, have it barbecued and enjoy with a bottle of beer/wine, often to the sound of a live band, what more could you ask for. Failing that you can just chill at the gite, have a barbecue, enjoy a dip in the pool or a laze in the hot tub. You can do as much or as little as you wish. Owner on site in adjacent property but the gite and pool are completely separate.
