Maison Dina in Haute-Vienne, a cottage in Limousin: View from Maison Dina

One-bedroom period cottage of great charm with breathtaking views.

Maison Dina is a one-bedroom, granite, period cottage of great charm, which was extensively restored and renovated in 2016/17. Today, it is a unique and gloriously situated gîte (holiday rental property) that commands one of Limousin's best bucolic views.

It now offers fresh and comfortable accommodation with 21st century amenities, including:
• A brand-new kitchen, hand built by a local artisan
• A new bathroom with shower
• Excellent wifi/broadband
• British satellite television - with over 200 freesat channels
• New electrical wiring

Naturally, Maison Dina was fully redecorated when it was restored. Its furniture is mostly new, but many carefully chosen antique pieces add period appeal.

Maison Dina was until recently a popular local art gallery run by its owner Hilde Kron. Original artworks from her personal collection remain on its walls.

The cottage's manicured and private garden enjoys truly spectacular views, and is one of its most appealing features. There's plenty of space to eat, drink and barbecue on the terrace, and to sunbathe on the lawn, surrounded by colourful flowers and shrubs.

Maison Dina's location

Maison Dina is perched atop a high hill with breathtaking, unspoilt views across the river hundreds of feet below to the green pastures and forest -- and a glimpse of a distant château -- on the opposite side of the valley.

The cottage is located in a quiet cul-de-sac, with no passing traffic, on the edge of the pretty village of Rancon in the Haute Vienne département (county), which recently became part of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of France. There's plenty of parking outside.

Rancon's population is roughly 550, so everywhere in the village is within an easy walk of the gîte. That includes its two art galleries, teashop/healthfood store, two bar/restaurants and boulangerie (baker).

The open-plan ground floor comprises a kitchen area, a staircase to the first floor, and steps down to the sitting/dining area, which has a fireplace and French door to the garden. The kitchen has a gas hob, and electric oven and fridge. Obviously, it's well equipped with crockery, cutlery and utensils.

The first floor has a spacious landing with a study nook where you can use your laptop. The bedroom has a custom-built bed with reading lights, dressing table in an alcove, bookshelf and table. The bed is higher than most so that you can enjoy the view before you get up -- perhaps while you're breakfasting! The bathroom has a new white suite, including an oversized shower, pedestal basin and lavatory. It also contains a built-in wardrobe and airing cupboard.
