Out & About

There are so many activities and things to do right on the door-step, that you may never want to leave.  Here we have started a somewhat limited list of some of those things … just use the buttons on the left to start exploring:

We use the Gites Limousin FaceBook page as a pictorial discovery of the area, it is well worth a look if you have access; we will include places we have been and events that have been fun …

If you are looking for a purely relaxing holiday and don’t wish to travel far, we are blessed with a swimming lake just 3km from the gites.  To walk around the whole lake takes less than an hour.

Walk, cycle or drive there and you can spend many hours, or days, just resting under the trees in the dappled sunlight; occasionally getting up to go swimming or get a drink or ice from one of the lakeside bistro’s which are open in the summer months.  If you stay that bit longer than planned, why not have an evening meal, and enjoy watching the sun set over the lake.  The lake has two designated swimming areas, both which have their own sandy beaches, bistro cafe and water activities; with life guards in July and August.  There is also a very well equipped water-sports center, which hires out paddle boards, kayaks, aqua-bikes, catamarans (to those qualified) etc; plus a very popular bar-restaurant which is open all year round; often hosting local live bands.

There are two sides to every lake: opposite, Base Nautique have lots of water facilities for hire

Well actually, our lake has three sides; looking across to the other swimming beach at Le 16 Beach, Pressignac

Taking in the view, you can have a quick drink at le Soleil Couchant bar


Our Facebook page should just give a little extra insight in to what’s going on, and places we have found for you to explore …
