Holiday Homes In France
Country Cottage with pool and lake in the Limousin
Beaubreuil, 35 kms from Limoges, in the Haute Vienne
3 bedrooms, sleeps up to 9 people
Tucked away between the Charente, the Loire, the Dordogne and the Lot, Limousin is one of the smallest regions of France and one of the least known. There are miles and miles of unspoiled countryside, criss-crossed by numerous rivers and green hills, woodland and lakes, small farms and rural villages. The roads are quiet and Roman ruins and ancient castles dot the landscape. Our house is in the tiny hamlet of Beaubreuil, 5 kms from Saint Cyr and 6 kms from Saint Laurent. Limoges is 23 kms from here.
Sheep, hens and cows graze in peaceful contentment around Beaubreuil and life is lived in harmony with the seasons. You can gather mushrooms and chestnuts in the woods in Spring and Autumn and fish in a dozen different places. Stone and wood are king here and the house has been restored traditionally, so as to keep its original charm and character and provide comfort. We also have a heated indoor pool (occasionally shared with us) and a small, private, fishing lake.
The main room has a log fireplace and is well furnished with chairs and a sofa bed, television, a coffee table and a dresser. The kitchen has a pretty little fireplace and is fully equipped with everything necessary.
The three bedrooms are upstairs, the first has a double bed and two single beds, the second has a double and a single bed and the third has a double bed. The bathroom has a bath/shower, a separate wc and a washing machine. There is also another bathroom in the pool house.
Outside is a courtyard with a small lawn. The swimming pool is covered and there is a large games area and table tennis.
There are riding stables close to the house, a golf course in Limoges and a canoe base in Aixe-sur-Vienne. Anyone will help you find your way around and advise on where the best places are for fishing, or where to eat. Succulent beef, lamb and freshwater fish, sometimes rabbit, occasionally venison make up many local dishes. The mild climate to the west is ideal for growing cherries and plums and these together with chestnuts and apples, wild mushrooms, foie gras and truffles are also often used.
Limoges is particularly famous for its ceramic arts and has been making fine porcelain since the 18th century and enamel work since the 12th century. Aubusson is famous for making tapestries and carpets, Tulle for making exquisite lace.
