Out and 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.  

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 the lakeside Chalet bistro which is open now all year round.  If you stay that bit longer than planned, the bistro prepares simple evening meals which you can sit and eat whilst watching the sun set over the lake.  The lake has two designated swimming areas, both which have their own sandy beaches, bistro cafes and water activities.

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 …
