The gite is independent from the main house and has a small private garden. There is a private terrace with seating, and barbecue. There are also sunlougers situated within a quirky ruin to make the most of daylong sunshine (sunshine not guaranteed, of course - but we'll put in a request!!)., Please note that as there is no fenced garden area, this property is not suitable for either pets or small children. The overall property is set in a private garden of over an acre which includes a small vegetable garden, and produce will be available to guests depending on the season and how successful we are with the veggies and fruit! Whether you are looking for a relaxing laid-back break, a more energetic holiday or a romantic break with that someone special the gite is the perfect hide-away...The gite is independent from the main house and has a small private garden.

Interaction with guests
Guests may have as little or as much interaction as they wish. They only need to knock on the door of the main house where Chris, who is very knowledgeable about the area, will be only too happy to help with any queries. Alternatively you may phone me, Sonia. I am always available to answer any queries regarding the facilities and area.

About the neighborhood
Only five minutes drive from the gite is the Lac de St Helene - typical of many such lakes in this area - where you will find a small well kept beach from which to swim in safety under the watchful gaze of a lifeguard (times of cover posted at the beach). A separate area of the lake is dedicated to those more adventurous types for water skiing. The Lac de Vassiviere is about 40 minutes drive from the gite and offers not only beaches, swimming, canoeing, and water skiing, but there is an island in the middle with a chateau with gardens housing a small menagerie of animals such as llamas and donkeys. There is also an exhibition centre which hosts art shows throughout the year. In an adjacent tower, we had the worlds largest Buddhist prayer wheel rotating constantly for about 6 months! Per...
Getting around
The gite is set in the centre of rural France and there is no bus system. A car (or motorbike) is essential.
