We started a project in 2017 to bring all we have back to life after many years of being empty and left to the effects of nature. This will take many years but be reassured the cottage and surrounding area are finished, blending modern luxuries with traditional features. Return visitors over the years will see our vision develop, over the winter months we are working on the orchard to bring it back to life. BOOK BEFORE END OF JANUARY 2019 for a week or more and receive a 15% discount and for a month or more receive a 25% discount. The nearest local boulangerie is 4km away in Champagnat, more small shops are available a little further afield in Bellegrade, including two restaurants, one with fantastic views across the valley from the outdoor terrace. The cottage has a private walled courtyard garden and a seating area to the front, in addition you have use of our extensive garden and orchard. We provide a welcome hamper and for an additional charge of 25 euros per person (reduced cost for children) we can provide a four course dinner including house wine served in your own cottage, ideal on the day you arrive. For short stays we also offer for an additional charge, a daily breakfast hamper for 10 euros per person. We are both keen cooks and you will find everything you need to cook, including some store cupboard basics. The cottage has two lovely bedrooms, one double and a twin. For no additional cost in the spacious double bedroom we can add a comfortable fold away type bed to accommodate a fifth person. More

About the neighbourhood
We are very lucky to live in a tranquil hamlet, a car will give you access to a fantastic local area with many places of interest, including lovely villages and historic towns. Moutier d’Ahun is an award winning village with a pop up restaurant during the summer along the river and Aubusson is our nearest town famous for its tapestries. Equally you can walk all day, from our doorstep with new routes to explore every day. La Naute which is 2.5kms away has a swimming lake with a bar and restaurant, there is live music each weekend throughout the season. Further afield Lac Vassiviere providing a fantastic day out, other local attractions include numerous brocantes, daily markets, chateaus, a wolf saunctuary and a giant labyrinth.
Getting around
Private parking for two cars is provided adjacent to the cottage, by car the wider area is accessible, for walkers an equally delightful local area is accessible from the cottages doorstep.
