“The Bells, the bells...”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

A fascinating and quirky rental. On arrival, we were somewhat nonplussed by the age of the building and its eccentricities, but we soon settled in and found it to be clean and comfortable, as well as constantly entertaining. The view from the terrace is lovely. Not a problem for us, but late risers may not appreciate the 7 a.m bell ringing.
On the whole good value and a unique experience.

“Beautiful ancient house”

This is a large, incredible quirky, unique and unusual property, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is beautifully restored 15th century property with some very bizarre and original decoration. It stands at the top of the village next to the church within comfortable walking distance of Bellac train station. There are local food shops, a well stocked supermarket a 5 minute walk away, bars and restaurants. There are historical and wildlife walks around the town and into the countryside, and some very beautiful places to sit and have a picnic by the river, or a patio garden with an amazing view. If you come from Limoges airport you can take a taxi for around €25 into Limoges and catch a train to Bellac. We spent the week eating too much, painting and catching up with old friends. Perfect.
