Paradise Francais Gite with pool Limousin Chateauponsac Bellac Haute Vienne

Farmhouse -
5 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Balledent, Haute-Vienne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Paradise is a beautiful 5 bedroom stone farmhouse set in a lovely location with far reaching views and has a fantastic HEATED swimming pool which is heated from May to September. This region is stunningly picturesque and has an abundance of rivers and hills, perfect French villages to explore, and wonderful local restaurants offering the very best Limousin cuisine. For those wanting to relax and enjoy long days in the sun and lounging by the pool you cannot find anywhere better to unwind. If you want a more active holiday the area has lots of outdoor activities including water sports at Lake St Pardoux and fishing and walking on your doorstep. It is no surprise to those of us who live here that this is where the French come for their summer holidays as this region offers everything anyone could want for a perfect holiday.

Interaction with guests
Over the last few years we have been renovating a little house in the same village so we have somewhere nearby to stay when Paradise has visitors. We are always on hand for advise or help with restaurant bookings or things to do. We usually attend to the pool every day to ensure its always clean and warm for your enjoyment.

About the neighbourhood
The Haute-Vienne region within the Limousin is wonderfully picturesque and has an abundance of rivers, idyllic hills, French villages, local markets to explore, and delightful local restaurants offering the very best in Limousin cuisine.

The small woodlands behind us are home to a wide variety wildlife, and birds of prey breed each year and are a joy to watch soaring overhead. Nearby rivers also provide the opportunity of some local fishing and Lake Saint Pardoux, which is only 15 minutes away, has a sandy man-made beach, water-sports, peaceful walks, hiking trails, cycle routes and many other leisure facilities for you to partake in all year round!
Getting around
The easiest and most convenient way to get around Balledent and the surrounding areas is by car. Many of the small shops are within walking distance, but lot a of the other attractions are more easily accessible by car, and most of these are a only a short drive away. We do however also have a range of bicycles that are free to use for the duration of your stay here in Paradise. It is a beautiful region to cycle around, and many locals choose to do just that for their main mode of transport! Just last year the Tour De France passed by a village close to Paradise!
