Located minutes from the Dordogne border in the heart of rural, unspoilt France, 'Laurier' offers you an escape to the peaceful countryside, whilst providing ample opportunities to explore and experience local culture, adventure, nature and a variety of sports. 'Laurier' is positioned between the internationally famous equestrian town of Arnac-Pompadour with its chateau, stud and racecourse, and one of France's 'plus beaux villages' (most beautiful villages), Ségur Le Château with its medieval half-timbered buildings. Nestling amidst over an acre of land with fruit trees (apples, cherries, plums, pears....) with no immediate neighbours, it is such a delight to snooze under the dappled shade of the walnut tree, soothed by the sound of the nearby river Auvézère, or to just sit back and wat...Located minutes from the Dordogne border in the heart of rural, unspoilt France, 'Laurier' offers you an escape to the peaceful countryside, whilst providing ample opportunities to explore and experience local culture, adventure, nature and a variety of sports. 'Laurier' is positioned between the internationally famous equestrian town of Arnac-Pompadour with its chateau, stud and racecourse, and one of France's 'plus beaux villages' (most beautiful villages), Ségur Le Château with its medieval half-timbered buildings. Nestling amidst over an acre of land with fruit trees (apples, cherries, plums, pears....) with no immediate neighbours, it is such a delight to snooze under the dappled shade of the walnut tree, soothed by the sound of the nearby river Auvézère, or to just sit back and watch the sun go down. Open all year, you can dine on your private patio, pick fresh herbs from the garden, or share quality time under the stars in the secluded outdoor spa tub. 'Laurier' cottage sleeps 2 adults and has its own private south-facing terrace/garden with views over the surrounding countryside - perfect for a champagne breakfast or admiring the glorious sunset. The cottage is open plan, offering light and spacious accommodation. We offer minimum 3-night stays all year. The fully equipped kitchen includes dishwasher, cooker and fridge. A freezer is on site should you need it. 'Laurier' cottage is equipped to cater for 4 persons comfortably, both for relaxing and for dining - handy if you book our other cottage too and come with friends. There is a wood-burning stove for cosy winter evenings (wood is included!), and the kingsized bed is ready with crisp white bedlinen for a good night's sleep. The shower room has a thermostatically controlled shower in large sized cubicle, his and hers hand basin, heated towel rail and hairdryer. Outside, you will find sun loungers, parasol, bbq and dining furniture in your private garden. There are also plenty of other places to sit and admire the views scattered around in the communal areas, for example, in the woodland garden. Complimentary finishing touches include generous arrival hamper, bathrobes, swimming towels and herb garden. For special occasions, you can upgrade your hamper to include champagne, candles and chocolate. We offer you peace and quiet, an escape from the hustle and bustle, an opportunity to spend some well deserved quality time with your special someone. We are perfectly located for those who love the countryside, nature, rural pursuits such as fishing, walking and horse riding, or something more adventurous such as water skiing or hot air ballooning. The local small town of Arnac Pompadour boasts a beautiful racecourse and impressive chateau. There are regular equestrian events held throughout the year, particularly during the summer months. The region itself offers lakes, forests, pretty villages, authentic markets, and good connections for travel to cities such as Bordeaux and Paris. We are withing a day's drive of the ports, and one hour from the nearest airports.More

Just outside the wonderfully old town of Pompadour, the gite sits in a beautiful quiet site, which also offers another gite and a glamping bell tent, that would be ideal for larger parties to book together. However, the properties are very much private of each...More

About the neighborhood
A haven for nature lovers, you will find plenty of marked walks to choose from. The nearby town of Arnac-Pompadour is a horse-lover's paradise with its regular racing and showjumping events, stud farm and mare & foal farm. The picturesque medieval village of Segur-le-Chateau is a treat to explore and holds a weekly evening farmer's market (with entertainment) throughout July and August. Within easy reach, you will also find the larger town of Brive-la-Gaillarde with its boutique shopping and pavement cafes; the cliff side village of Rocamadour and its birds of prey centre and monkey sanctuary; Collonges-la-Rouge and its stunning red stone buildings; Brantome with its impressive abbey, delightful river and interesting shops.
Getting around
The nearest rail station is approx 6km away. Uzerche station, a 20 minute drive away, offers a wider service eg to Paris and Toulouse. A car is essential, unless you are a very keen and fit cyclist! Nearest airports: Limoges and Brive 1 hour.
