La Feranchie is a superbly renovated Limousin Maison de Maitre in a small tranquil hamlet, 5 miles from Rochechouart. The house is surrounded by extensive lawned grounds and an orchard from where guests are free to pick their own fruit. A stream runs through the garden around the side of the Napoleonic barn. There is a heated private swimming pool which looks out over rolling countryside. In the garden there is also an old tree house and a trampoline.

Inside, the house has been completely renovated in the last 2 years and contains both original features and all mod cons. It will suit both couples looking for a relaxing break and families with children of all ages. Go karting, high wires, lakes with beaches all within 30 minutes drive and the major attraction of Futuroscope and the Bordeaux vineyards within 90 minutes.

The photos do not do this place justice, it is an absolute gem. The house has everything you need, the only things you need to bring are your clothes and food. The owner has put a lot of thought into the accommodation. We are a...More

About the neighborhood
The two nearest towns to the house are Rochechouart and St. Matthieu, both a 10 to 15 minute drive. Rochechouart has all the shops you would expect (cheesemongers, butchers, bakers, patisserie, cafe and restaurants) in a beautiful hill top setting complete with chateau at which Richard the Lionheart is reputed to have stayed. A fabulous night market is held here every August.

St Matthieu is a smaller town but has the best supermarket in the area and during the summer months hosts a wonderful night market every fortnight where local produce can be bought, and a communal barbecue takes place with live music. There is also a beautiful lake with a beach and other activities (crazy golf, pedaloes, running track) if you get bored with the pool at the house with an on site cafe/restaurant. An...
