    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Nestled into the tranquil landscape, La Porcherie is a high-quality gite offering holiday accommodation ideal for two people, but with capacity for four 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 be aware that the bathroom is accessed thr...

    Additional Location Information
    The Limousin, made up of three departments - Correze, Creuse and the Haute-Vienne - is a region of beauty and tranquillity. From pasture land and forests to magnificent lakes (many of which offer water sports and/or fishing) and rivers (again with fishing!) there is little that the region does not offer in the way of places to relax or to experience something a little more energetic!
    The landscape lends itself naturally to many 'countryside' pastimes whether that be horse-riding, hiking, mushroom hunting (in season), 4 x 4 or motorbike off-roading, or mountain biking. Water sports abound in this region, which after all is rightly known as the lake district of France! 
    Only five minutes drive from the gite is the Lac de St Helene - typical of many such lakes in this area - where you will find a small well kept beach from which to swim in safety under the watchful gaze of a lifeguard (times of cover posted at the beach).

    It is a perfect place for artists and art-lover...

Good base for exploring Limousin region with very helpful owners who even offer one free lift to the local restaurant.. Exclusive pool welcome after a day's exploring the countryside and towns. Some produce is available from garden. more
