Your Hosts

Garry and Deborah Smith are here to help you achieve the best holiday possibly. We arrived in France in 2005 having left a very full life in the UK with our 2 girls aged 8 and 11. We have renovated our own farm house and have settled here in France over the last 11 years, both girls having been through the schooling system. I have continued my passion for beauty therapy and therefore treatments can be booked whist you are here on holiday. Garry set up a business too renovating our buildings and others for clients.

We came over to France for a weekend break searching for properties, fell in love with this place in this very rural setting, in need of some serious attention, no doors or windows!!

Buying it that weekend and have never really looked back. We chose the area due to being in close proximity to Limoges and it’s all important international airport, flying to Stansted, Manchester, East Midlands, Liverpool and Leeds Bradford, only 25 mins away.

We started renovating the barn opposite our house (the gite) in 2007, taking our time to, hopefully, get it right. Situated in the grounds of a working limousine cattle farm and beautiful Chateau, offering stunning views of the charentais countryside and beautiful river Vienne, in turn and fantastic place to chill and relax.

The gite is located in a rural peaceful location with private pool. Very well situated for all your holiday needs , cycling, walking, golfing, swimming, sailing, and if there is anything you can’t find we are always close by to pick our brains. Suitable for families or couples
