Interaction with guests

My sister and family live on site and look after the gîtes, pool and grounds . She will be there to give you the keys and to make sure you have a lovely stay. She is very knowledgeable about the area and speaks fluent French.

The neighbourhood

We are located in a really peaceful rural area with a single track lane running past. The small village of Saint-Julien-Le-Vendomois is a 15 minute walk away which has a bar/bistro that also sells the daily bread.

There is so much to see and do in the area with the beautiful old medieval village of Segur-le-Chateau 2miles away and Pompadour with its race course, home of the national stud is only 6 miles.

There is a choice of several lakes with beaches/activities 2 of which are 20mins and 30mins drive away.

There are many other outdoor activities in the area such as horse riding, fishing, go karting and of course biking on the lovely quiet roads, these can also be hired locally.

Being right on the edge of the Dordogne it also only takes 1.5 hours to get to the famous town of Rocamadour set into the cliff side there are also lots of beautiful caves around here to visit.

On a business trip in the aera, we spent a short but wonderful time at Michelle's. We were welcome by Michelle's sister Simone, who was really helpful and nice to us. We heartily recommend this place ! Aurore.

Séjour très agréable dans une région dépaysante! Le lieu de vie est coupé de la vie citadine... idéal pour les vacances ! Les hôtes sont très sympas et le gîte est bien aménagé. Merci

I am Michelle and after several times of my husband Martin and I visiting our family in Limousin France we fell in love with the area. So when the ideal property became available we jumped at the opportunity to buy. Jumped is a bit of an exaggeration as anyone who has bought a French property will testify, from starting our enquiries to when we actually owned the house and gîtes, it took nearly a year!
We are based in the UK. I run my own beauty therapy business from home and Martin has a full time job working in agriculture . We have two grown up daughters one who works for the National Health Service in Leeds and the other in commercial management of sports stars in London.

My sister Simone, her husband Dave and their children live in the house on the same site as the gîtes. It really is a family venture! Simone and Dave have lived in this area for 7 years, they know it very well and speak fluent French. They are your hosts, par excellence.
Nothing for you is too much trouble for them; From looking after the pool and grounds to helping and advising on what to see and do, they will try to ensure this will be your best holiday ever!
