You will find the Gite du Lac, a cosy, stone built, two bedroom, French 'longère' situated in the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord Nord, at Lescuras, just outside the rural village of Bussiére Galant. The cottage is 6 km from the historic town of Châlus and 45 minutes from Limoges and the airport. We have free WiFi , wood burning stoves and electric radiators.
NEXT AVAILABILITY is from 7th March 2020 for a 3 month or 6 month let (3 months max April - September at €600 per calendar month, 6 months max October - March inclusive at €500 per calendar month.) Gite du Lac is also available for weekly holiday lets from €350 to €500 per week between 1st April and 30th September, and for a one month stay is €850.
Lescuras is quiet, but our nice French neighbours are not too far away. Our gite is situated on a no through road in a small hamlet of 7 houses. There is safe, off the road parking to the front or back of the house. We are only ten minutes' walk from the village of Bussière Galant Bourg, and twenty minutes' walk to Bussière Galant Gare.
A two minutes' walk along a footpath brings you to a bathing lake with beach, a cafe, woodland tree-top adventure park, crazy golf and Vélorail (bike rail) with pedal-powered carriages that run on an ancient railway track. Fantastic fun for all the family (in the holiday season July and August) but most of the year the lake is a peaceful, almost deserted wildlife haven; perfect for fishing.
There are footpaths on the doorstep for pleasant walks through fields and woodlands.
We are looking forward to welcoming elephants to the village in the very near future as Elephant Haven, the European Elephant Sanctuary for circus elephants is about to open; only eight minutes' drive from the Gite du Lac.
Bussiere Galant Bourg and Bussiere Galant Gare has many amenities : two bakers, a hairdresser, a library, two general shops, two restaurants, a beautiful church, a flower shop, a garage, schools, a pharmacy, a butcher and a Post Office. The nearest supermarket, petrol station and bank is a ten minute drive away in Chalus. From the station at Bussiere Gare you can travel to Bordeaux, Limoges, Bordeaux and Périgueux. The nearest airport is Limoges, 45 minutes' drive away. Other public transport is limited and a car is necessary.
The house has pretty flower borders, roses and grape vines on the walls, and a spacious garden to the front with a ping pong table and sun loungers. The back of the house faces west and you can sit in the garden and watch the neighbours' beautiful horses and the setting sun. Both gardens have tables and chairs.
On the ground floor there is a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, a downstairs toilet and a large, open plan living room and dining room with TV, French and English Freeview, and WiFi. Both kitchen and living room have wood burning stoves and there are electric radiators throughout.
Stairs lead up to a large master bedroom with a double bed, a smaller bedroom with twin beds and a shower room with wash basin and WC. The house is a real French cottage and you do have to duck a low doorway and beam upstairs. To the front of the house are views over the garden to the hills, and to the back views over fields and hills. There is no view of the lake from the house, which is masked by trees.
The cottage is well equipped, including all bed linens and towels.
Everything is included in the rent except electricity (by meter and payable monthly) and logs for the stove (you can order logs from the woodman).
The cottage owners, Barbara and Dursun, will be there to greet you, to cut the grass and to say goodbye at the end of your stay. We live about 40 minutes' drive away and you can contact us by phone if you need us.
We don't allow smoking in the gite and the cottage is not suitable for pets. It's a quiet neighbourhood, not suitable for parties and noise.
