“My husband, baby and I had a wonderful 3+ weeks staying at Becky's place. It was perfect for us, quiet and rural, cute with everything you need and a brill open plan kitchen/diner/living room. We enjoyed trips to Limoges, Brantôme, St Junien, Perigueaux and Saint Yrieix La Perche (which also has a great swimming pool) and had multiple great lunches at The California in Bussière-Galant. Very highly recommended and thank you again Becky!”
At the heart of the Limousin Périgord natural park, 30 minutes from Limoges: at the end of the village, past the small bridge, the alley of old oaks welcomes you in a green bath. The wooded land on 5 ha nestles in a meander of the small river Gorre. The mill is camped along the reach; a bamboo plantation softens the north side while in the south, the terrace of the gîte overlooks the edge of the wood. The facade mirrors the ruined stable, inhabited by a huge cherry tree and a large bench for naps.
“Small haven of peace in the green We came to "remake the world" by hiking around. We certainly discovered beautiful walking paths, easy to access, with beautiful views but above all a beautiful place to regain strength, cozy, rustic, perfect for recharging your batteries, with the chirping of birds and the lapping of the little ru that is passing next to accompany you to breakfast. Forget work, drop your computer and tablets, the network is not very accessible anyway, find peace and nature. And quiet! there are tons of books and hiking guides available. Do not forget your little wool because the charm of having a wood stove to heat this charming place has the downside of not heating the room very hard, but so you will find yourself all around the flames, to keep you warm together and talk to you, in these times when it is each in his chair to ignore the others. . . As for the welcome, all the comments speak for it, our hosts are at the same time simple, sincere and warm, a real pleasure to be around them, moments which made this wkend at the Moulin de La Forge all the more unforgettable. We recommend !!”
Welcome to our traditional cottage style home in this beautiful part of France. Situated in the centre of the Perigord- Limousin Regional Park, we're only a few minutes drive from Cussac, at the edge of the hamlet Vimpere, La Chapelle-Montbrandeix. An ideal location for visiting this area of historic interest, with routes nearby taken by Richard (the Lionheart) 1st on his crusades. This area is known as 'The French Lake District' and upon visiting you'll understand why, with many lakes nearby.
“Excellent address: Deb and Bob will welcome you with great kindness. The evening meals shared with them were delicious. The opportunity to taste typical British dishes! Really great hosts, Thanks again!”
