Well-equipped and tastefully decorated traditional Limousin village house, St Germain les Belles. A short walk to village shops, restaurants and sandy swimming beach. Gorgeous countryside views from the large private garden and dining terrace. 30 minutes south of Limoges. Sleeping a maximum of 14 people, 6 bedrooms and 5 ensuite bathrooms. Ground-floor wheelchair access. Free wifi internet connection and laptop available for your use. http://www.vacvertes.com
There is a large but cosy lounge, with 2 convertible double sofa beds, collection of reading material, satellite TV, free wifi internet connection (plus laptop computer), DVD player and DVD library. There is also a wood-burning stove for those chilly evenings.
Adjoining the lounge, is the large kitchen. We love this big, open-plan space... There is a huge kitchen table / benches and the kitchen offers you everything you might find in your own house.. Dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, coffee maker, big cooker, toaster, loads of tasteful white crockery...
Although the house is in the heart of the village, you will have the best of both worlds, as once you step out of the back door, the peaceful views of open countryside really make you feel like you are in a more remote spot.
The attractive terrace (with barbecue) is a wonderful location for a relaxing drink or meal on a warm summer's evening. There are reclining seats, 2 large dining tables / benches and parasol if you need some more shade. The terrace leads out onto the large, private and family-friendly garden lawn and is a great spot for watching wild birds!
All linen, towels, electricity, wood for the stove and heating are included in the price of the rental - every room has central heating and double-glazing, making this a fantastic holiday destination in winter too!
Depending on the season, we enjoy providing free organic vegetables and free-range eggs from our own small-holding, just up the road. We can also arrange tasty home-cooked meals to be delivered right to your doorstep – just ask for more details. This convenient service is really appreciated by families with young children.
We also try and be as child-friendly as possible – we can provide useful items that will help you to enjoy your stay e.g. cots, toys, baby bath, stair gate, high chair... Just make sure you ask when booking.
We are situated in the heart of the peaceful village of St Germain les Belles, just 30 minutes south of Limoges, in the Haute-Vienne region of Limousin (junction 42 of the A20 motorway).
If you really don't want to hire a car during your stay, you can find everything you need, right on your doorstep.. The village has several small, local shops (selling everything from bread and pastries to fruit and veg. ), a network of country walks, a rail service to Limoges and our village swimming lake!
During July and August, the lake can provide really great (and free!) entertainment for families with children. The sandy beach is often busy with local children or families from the adjoining campsite and there is also a lakeside bar, selling snacks and ice creams. There are also several play areas for the children and a lovely walk around.
Limousin is often called the 'French Lake District' and will offer you some of the most unspoiled, natural landscapes in France... We like to think of it as the ‘Real France’..
We are surrounded by swimming lakes, beaches and outdoor swimming pools. The beautiful Lake Vassiviere, Europe's largest man-made lake, is only 45 minutes away and is also the site of the national contemporary art gallery.
For the outdoor enthusiast and those guests who enjoy countryside rambling, there are numerous things to do and beautiful places to see. For cyclists, bicycle hire is available within the village and there are many local routes through quiet country villages. The abundance of lakes and rivers within Limousin also means that including the fantastic canoeing and sailing locations, it is also a great location for a fishing holiday in France.
We are only 30 minutes away from the attractive city of Limoges - famous for its porcelain and old quarter. Spend a day there and discover the interesting boutiques, medieval churches, restaurants and antique markets. The other historic towns and villages in our area are also well worth a visit, including Segur le Château, one of the most beautiful villages in France; Uzerche on the stunning Vézère River; Pompadour (La Cité du Cheval) and its frequent equestrian events and château…
