“a delightful, pretty gite with everything you could need for a restful break”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

With a warm welcome that made us feel very at home - Chez Marie had everything we wished for. The pretty terrace was a lovely setting to enjoy a glass of wine and a quiet read - in the background just the buzzing of the bees!!
Chez Marie has everything you might need - with good quality appliances and furnishings.
The gite was immaculate and easy to look after.

“Loving limousin”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The gite was beautiful and hats off to chris for the finish achieved on the property ,very comfortable had everything you needed.
The rear courtyard whilst small was lovely, secluded , warm and full of bird song . Everyone was very friendly and a slow walk into blond is recommended to sit and drink in the wonderful pace of life.

“So peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This place is so pretty, cosy, well decorated, and quiet. The owner, Elaine gave us the warmest welcome. This is really peaceful, we had a really great time with our son. The Limousin's landscapes are beautiful, and there are many things to visit. We were there during winter but we are coming back in June to experiment summer time and enjoy the lovely terrace and the garden. We sincerely recommend it.
