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...

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...

About the neighborhood
The Limousin is a relatively undiscovered region of France and is therefore comparatively uncrowded. It is both the garden and the 'Lake District' of France and is a delight to visit. Whether exploring the area by car (and it is quite possible to have a very good time without a car!) or on foot there is much to enjoy.

The area is one of great historic interest spanning many centuries. There are a variety of places to visit in the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart ranging from Coussac Bonneval and the Chateau de Bonneval to Arnac-Pompadour, which boasts a fine chateau. We are also very close to the Blond Mountains, which have marvellous walks, and the ancient village of Montmartre, where an art or antique show is often in progress.

The nearest large city - 25 minutes drive - is L...
