The Gite

Comfortable accommodation in the heart of the Correze

The house was built in 1837. When we bought the farm the cottage was derelict. After making sure it was watertight we went about gradually refurbishing it as funds permitted. This meant converting the roof space to provide bedrooms and a bathroom.

The house offers approximately 82 sq metres of very comfortable accommodation. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with one en-suite shower room/wc and a further shower room/wc on the ground floor.

On the ground floor there is a very large kitchen breakfast room with stone floor and inglenook fireplace. The sitting room is very spacious and comfortable (32 sq m).

Whilst there are only 3 bedrooms, the house is large enough to entertain significantly more. For larger groups, subject to availability, the B&B rooms in the main house can be used to accommodate extra guests on a room only basis.

Bedroom accommodation

Main bedroom - King-sized bed (160 cms wide) and en-suite
Bed 2 - Double bed (135 cms wide)
Bed 3 – Bunk beds (90 cms wide)


Fully fitted with washing machine, dish washer, microwave, fridge freezer. The 90cm wide stainless steel gas cooker has a 5 gas burners and a large single oven. The kitchen table can be extended to up to 3 metres in length comfortably accommodating 10 or more people.

Sitting room

This spacious room has two large sofas and other chairs. It has a powerful wood burner which is how most of the house is heated but the bedrooms upstairs also have radiators for visitors visiting in off-season. It is equipped with a TV, although this is only for use with a DVD or laptop with HDMI connection.


There is Wi-Fi in the house connected to the system in the main house. Please note however that being in rural France the connection is not great and although fine for keeping in touch is not up to streaming.

Towels and linen are provided. The house is very well insulated and has double glazing so is comfortable and cosy and so possible to use in Winter. A small charge will be made for firewood if required.
