The Gîte is a beautifully renovated 1 bedroom cottage, it sleeps 2/5 persons. It has a large bedroom with a seated area, kitchen, dining and sitting room area, with a bed settee, bathroom and separate WC. It has its own fenced and furnished garden with a barbecue.

Interaction with guests
We like to greet our guests and show them around the gite when they arrive. We provide walking and cycling maps for our local area. We also have a collection of tourist information leaflets for both the Haute Vienne and Vienne areas. We do also provide a welcome pack for guests, which outlines attractions varying from historic sites to country pursuits. We do like to leave guests to enjoy there stay, but we are situated next door to the gite and are always willing to give advise and information.
