Nestled into the tranquil landscape, La Porcherie is a high-quality gite offering holiday accommodation for two people in the hamlet of Villemonteix, which is at the gateway to the Monts et Barrages, and the Millevaches Regional Park, in Limousin.

Renovated to a very high standard, the building (which used to house both a piggery and a bread oven) has kept all the character one would expect in a building of this nature (but the pigs have been evicted !). Wood beams and original stone walls are mixed with the comfort of modern conveniences to provide a comfortable retreat from the pressures of modern life.

Although there are steps to the entrance, once inside all the accommodation is on one level.

Please also note that as there is no fenced garden area, this property is not suitable for either pets or small children.

Annie and Chris were wonderful hosts once again. We stayed in their beautiful gite in 2011 and didn't hesitate to book in again when we decided to travel to France once again. Their hospitality was wonderful as usual, nothing was too much trouble and we were welcomed again as if we were part of your family. The gite is wonderful,... more

We had a great time staying here. The gite is characterful and well kitted out with everything you need. You can walk out of the door and up the hill into lush forests with wild boar tracks and beautiful wild flower meadows. There are also good places to visit and a friendly local auberge within easy driving distance, and we... more
