These are just some of the many excellent reviews we have received from previous happy guests.
Incredibly High Standard
This property is just stunning! Incredible high standard, felt very opulent, with several quirky features including an indoor balcony & a Narnia wardrobe entrance to the living space! The setting is beautifully quiet & secluded with so much space for the kids to run around in. The property itself was almost as big than my local village - I could fit my house in the kitchen space! This was just the tonic we needed before Christmas, the views are stunning in all directions, like a deep exhale of peace! We will definitely be back!
Its hard to find something to fault with this. The weather could have been better but I don't hold the hosts responsible for that! It was December!
Fantastic farmhouse in a fabulous setting, a real home from home.
Huge living room, excellent quality furnishing throughout, felt very luxurious but homely. Great views of the night sky and the stars, and the lake is lovely. No negatives - its a perfect getaway
Perfect Secluded Spot
The perfect secluded spot to focus on finishing off the outstanding work admin before Christmas... and then sit back, relax and look up at the stars with a nice glass of red wine, whilst pondering my priorities for 2019. Awesome house and grounds, comfy beds, and all the facilities one could need!
We will be back !!
A beautiful location and a stunning home. We instantly felt welcome and relaxed.
We booked this stunning gite for a large family gathering to celebrate a milestone birthday. It was very straightforward to book and Duncan , the owner, was really helpful and forthcoming with information on the area and with directions to the property. The gite itself is set in beautiful secluded grounds complete with lake and forest and perfect for outdoor activities such biking or simply relaxing in the sun on the large terrace! We had an amazing time here at this real hidden gem and can't wait to go back!
This house is amazing
This house is amazing. A typical french country farmhouse and barn have been transferred into a dream holiday house that’s perfect for a large family get together or group of friends. All the bedrooms are very comfortable with luxurious bathrooms. The main bedroom even has a fireman’s pole for a swift exit downstairs! We were particularly impressed with the open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area that was made for large gatherings. It’s huge! Did I mention the fireman’s pole? Outside there is a massive terrace partially covered to give some shade on the really hot summer days. Beyond that there is a massive meadow and acres of woodland and a lake to explore. Perfect for letting the kids be kids and go on an adventure. The nearby towns are both full of lovely shops and bakeries (wonderful pastries and breads) but Jumilhac edges the scenic competition with its fairytale castle.
Only downside - It’s too far to be able to go to every weekend.
We had a fantastic time in this beautiful home and grounds. Would fully recommend it to anyone. The massive lounge/dining area is particularly stunning for large family meals and spending time together and the fabulous acres of grounds meant the kids could explore to there hearts content.
Jaw-Dropping, Quality-Finished Family Gite
What struck me most in our stay here, other than the gorgeous secluded grounds, was the high quality finishing to all of the decor throughout this spacious property. Seriously, the living space could fit the footprint of our entire home! The surrounding area has so much historic & geographical beauty, and all-round gorgeous 'frenchness', that you will be back for a second stay in a heartbeat! There are a ton of attractions, but to be honest we just loved hanging out here most of the time!
Perfectly peaceful, to get away from it all
As you look out across the field towards the woods (and beyond that, the lake) you feel as though you're in the middle of nowhere - perfect tranquility, with nothing but the sounds of wildlife around you. That said, the town of St Yrieix is not far away - about 10 minutes by car - where you can get everything you need (and the fortnightly Friday market is well worth a trip for picking up delicious goodies to take back and enjoy on the property's terrace, with a nice glass of local wine!). We stayed there as a group of ladies celebrating a friend's 50th birthday, and it was a perfect base for chilling out, visiting lovely local restaurants and laughing loudly without disturbing the neighbours!
