The Gites

We have two gites enabling us to cater for 8 to 10 people, great for those of you wishing to have a vacation with extended family or friends.  Enjoy your holiday spending quality time together, sightseeing or lazing down by the local lake, followed by wonderfully sociable BBQ’s in the evening; then finally, just relaxing in your own space at the end of the day.

La Haute gite even considers small pets, if you are wishing to travel with your furry companion.


Covid 19:

Here at Gites Limousin we confirm that we follow strict guidelines with regards to cleaning protocols between guests.  All facilities are thoroughly cleaned then disinfected; including high-contact areas such as bannisters, switches, remotes etc.  We also provide our guests with disinfectant wipes, sprays and hand gels for additional peace of mind.  Some books, toys, excess soft furnishings and spare pillows may have been removed if they will not be utilised during your stay.  If you are at all unsure of anything, please ask beforehand and I will be happy to clarify.  Stay safe, play safe and enjoy.


Classified as 4 and 3 star accommodations

We hope that our two super gites offer you something a little different, with all the comforts you would expect and hopefully a little more.  Each is finished to a very high standard, and have been restored in a sympathetic caring fashion, retaining many of the original features but with a contemporary twist.

Go to the La Vienne or La Haute pages for full details:
