Peaceful Gîte in the beautiful Limousin

Whether you're looking for a relaxing few days in deepest France to unwind from your busy life, or a longer stay to get a taste of living in this beautiful Limousin region, our comfortable gîte bordering the peaceful hamlet of Theix could be just what you need.

This is a wonderful place to relax. Here you can enjoy some quiet time, watch the world go by from a local café, visit the markets, walk the lanes.

The gîte, which accommodates 4 comfortably, has its own garden with a south-facing terrace, with a barbeque for outdoor eating under the dappled shade of silver birches. There's also a 10-by-5 metre in-ground swimming pool, with solar heating to bring the water up to 30 degrees in summer, and sun loungers on the poolside terrace.

For those who like to be active, the beautiful city of Limoges, famed for its porcelain, medieval quarter and ancient indoor market, and Poitiers, home to Futuroscope, one of France’s premier attractions, are each less than an hour away.

Nearby Bussière Poitevine and the medieval walled city of Le Dorat offer banks, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, and the historic Cité de L’Écrit (city of writing) at Montmorillon is only half an hour away. The River Gartempe flows close by, offering fishing, waterside picnics and excellent walking; horse riding and canoeing can be arranged at Lathus. We can even arrange flying lessons nearby.

Or you can just chill out at the gîte, taking a dip in the heated pool, swinging in the hammock, reading on the sunlounger, playing ‘Ding-a-Ring’, or sipping a G&T on the bench in the last rays of the day. With clear air and no light pollution, you’ve never seen so many stars.
