La Vienne in Haute-Vienne, a gite in Limousin: La Vienne exterior

Wonderful period cottage with Wi-Fi near leisure lake & within the National Park

You will find us nestled in the heart of the tiny tranquil hamlet of La Besse in the Haute Vienne / Nouvelle-Aquitaine; only 3 kilometers from the Charente border. Nestled within the Perigord-Limousin National Park, the countryside is on your doorstep to explore and ramble away to your hearts content; the perfect region for walking, relaxing or cycling with quiet roads & pathways that meander through the stunning countryside.

We offer two unique holiday cottages accommodating up to 10 people; exclusively decorated and furnished with antiques and vintage pieces. We have tried to marry the old and the new to provide you with a fun and quirky decor, but also ensure that you have all your mod cons and creature comforts.

Close to the Charente and Dordogne borders, closer still to the leisure lakes you can go swimming at the beach; hire sail boats, windsurfers, kayaks, canoes or pedaloes. There is also horse-riding, golf or of course, plenty of fishing to be had both lake and river.

La Vienne holiday Gite offers a warm, comfortable, contemporary welcome with all the home luxuries you could wish for. Tastefully decorated, all of the rooms are well proportioned and airy. The ground floor offers open plan living, opening straight onto the front patio with private side garden, which catches the sun all day, ideal for the evening barbeque. There is also a second private patio area to the rear where you can enjoy the morning sun with your croissants & coffee. With two bedrooms on separate floors, each with their own bathroom; it makes this the ideal retreat for two couples or those with children.

There is also the provision of a sofa-bed on the ground floor to accommodate a 5th and 6th person.

There is also a large communal garden with table tennis, sun loungers, chairs, picnic table and plenty of space to rest or play.

The area:

The Limousin is the land of green hills, woodland, lakes and rivers; making it perfect for those who love being outdoors, swimming, cycling, walking, running, playing golf or simply fishing; its all just waiting to be discovered.

The Limousin is rural France at its very best, sleepy villages and towns to discover, the odd chateau or castle to explore, weekly markets and evening barbeques; a week just isn’t long enough. The natural beauty is just so relaxing you wont want to go home again.

Specialties of the Limousin:
Obviously beef, but also lamb and pork for the meats; then truffles, mushrooms, apples and chestnuts.

Food to try:
Clafoutis, a desert of black cherries baked in batter
Gatueau Creusois, a butter and almond cake
Galetou, a salted pancake with ham and cheese

Walnut liqueur
Pineau des Charentes.
