Had a really good relaxing time. The decor of the house is way beyond any expectations. The terrace in the morning is a dream come true.

I am so grateful to you for taking the time to write this review and would be very happy indeed to welcome you back in the future. Please do feel free to recommend us to others who may fancy a stay in the area. I hope they, too, would be as happy as you were.

“Beautiful house in a perfect location overlooking the River Vienne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We arrived in the lovely French town of Availles-Limouzine and easily found the beautiful three story house with a covered roof terrace overlooking the River Vienne. The house is absolutely gorgeous, well equipped and very clean; it catered easily for six adults and a baby.
We swam in the river every day which, although fairly warm, helped to cool us down after the heat of the day. We hired Kayak's from the park on the other side of the river, and went water skiing in the next town.
We had a fantastic meal in the little hotel / bar in Availles-Limouzine, excellent service and beautiful food - definitely recommended.
We visited a few of the surrounding towns including Limoges.
We all thoroughly enjoyed this holiday - the countryside, river, little towns and the house itself - I can't fault any of it. A fantastic place, we will definitely return next year.

I am so delighted to know that you all enjoyed your stay at La Poste so much and that the house lived up to your expectations. There are so many activities to try in the immediate area and I'm very glad that you were able to take full advantage of these. The Hotel Chatellenie in the village does offer good quality authentic French cuisine and it's good to know you liked it too. We would be absolutely delighted to welcome you all back next year - I'm sure there are plenty of activities that you didn't have time to try out.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The house is beautifully located in the town and furnished to the very highest of standards, having everything you would need (and more) for a holiday. It felt like being at home, only better. As a town house there was no garden, but a lovely terrace and seating area on the first floor was a much better option as less wildlife to contend with! Being in the town meant that we felt like locals, and got to know many people in a brief time, which enhanced the time spent there all the more. Lovely hotel restaurant in the town and plenty of walks to enjoy the local scenery as well as good road links for further exploration.
The owner and caretakers were incredibly helpful and keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay, with excellent advice and information before we left for France and located within the house itself. English TV made it ideal for an easily bored teenager who doesn't appreciate French culture and was much enjoyed!
I really can't fault this house at all and would recommend anyone stay here in this lovely French town, you really won't regret it!!
