When we first saw this property and its stunning views, we fell in love with it. We think you will too! We have recently completed the renovation and decoration of this stone built cottage. Whilst the original oak beams and bread oven have been retained, the quality accommodation is modern and spacious. Set in the beautiful rolling countryside of the Creuse, it offers a peaceful environment for those who want to get away from it all. Ideal for a holiday, short break, house hunting visit or artist's retreat - the open view, big and ever changing sky are sure to be a source of inspiration to those with a creative streak!

By day, the views from the terrace are of unspoilt, open countryside. In the evening, the sunsets are truly amazing and then, in the absence of light pollution, the night sky shows so many stars it takes your breath aw...

We loved everything about this gite. The owners were lovely, the gite stunning, the hot tub luxurious and the location was perfect for us. We loved exploring the area, and had regular drinks at the bar in Chambon. The gite terrace was great for chilling out by day and star gazing by night. It had everything we needed, including a...

We arrived to a friendly welcome, a glass of wine and a beautiful sunset. Martin, in Elaine's absence, made us feel very welcome and gave us top tips on places to visit, to eat and where to get bread and croissants for breakfast. The gite was very well equipped and a welcome basket of goodies was a lovely surprise. Martin...

We have just spent 12 blissfully peaceful nights at this very well equipped and home from home Gite. Owners live next door and are very friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge. We could have happily lived there, peace, quiet, farm, wildlife, local shops handy and car is needed. Refreshing spa outside for cooling off after a hot French day...

About the neighborhood
The cottage is set in unspoilt countryside 10mins from the village of Chambon sur Voueize, between the larger towns of Gueret and Montlucon. Chambon sur Voueize has local shops, boulangeries, supermarket, bank, post office, pharmacy, petrol, a weekly market and the 11th century abbey church of St Valerie.

Our 1 bedroom cottage is perfect for couples but a cot for an infant can be provided. A private terrace, complete with a hot tub/jacuzzi [seasonal], offers stunning views of open and unspoilt countryside. The quiet country lanes around the property make it ideal for walkers and cyclists.

A car is required and there is ample space for car parking.
