The house

Where the paved road becomes a gravel road you will find this friendly, welcoming holiday home. It is situated two kilometres outside the village of Champniers et Reilhac. We renovated the holiday home in 2010 using environmentally friendly materials.
The lay out of the holiday home is as follows: hall, bathroom with shower and (dry) toilet, two bedrooms and a spacious bright living room with an open plan kitchen. From the living room you have a delightful view of the garden, the forest valley, meadows and small lake. The forest is really nice, often you are the only one to walk there. The bridge over the Trieux, a small river, is 200 m from the house.
The cottage can accommodate 2 to 4 people. The first bedroom has a comfortable double bed (160x200m) and the second bedroom has two single beds. The living room has a sofa bed. Sheets and towels are provided.There is a wireless internet network from the house. The kitchen has a coffee maker, fridge, microwave and everything you need for a good meal. For cooler days, there is a wood stove. You will find wood in the shed.

A south-facing terrace overlooks the garden and the valley. Our lake is 75 meters; it gets its water from a source. The slight murmur of the river can be heard in the background. Our pastures with our horses, surround the property. A path gives access to the forest.
You can go to the village for a little tour: buy a baguette, croissants for breakfast or just have a drink on a terrace. In summer, village festivals are organised regularly. The old Romanesque church of the village is also worth a visit.

Restaurants, food & wine

For a delicious meal, you can simply go to the village café. But you will find other restaurants in all the villages around. If you want to buy local products, you should visit the Piégut-Pluviers market.


The property is located in the north of the Dordogne, in the foothills of Limousin. The region has many lakes and rivers. The landscape is hilly, with forests and meadows.
The town of Piégut-Pluviers, known for its weekly market, is 10 minutes from the house. This market is one of the largest in southwestern France. You will find everything there! In the vicinity, the other big cities are Nontron and La Rochechouart. The departmental capitals Périgueux, Limoges and Angoulême are each one hour away.
During your stay, in summer, you can go to Lake St-Mathieu or Lake St-Estèphe for swimming, eating out and all sorts of activities Both are 15 minutes by car. There is a tennis court in the village and an indoor smimming pool in Nontron. You can go horse riding in St Estèphe and canoeing in Montbron or Brantôme.

Het huisje is heel mooi en het uitzicht geweldig ! De plek is super rustig in de natuur . Er is een (druk ) meer op 15 min rijden . Jammer geen oven . Buitendouche was ook fijn geweest ! We hebben genoten !

Wij zijn hier in juli/augustus 2015 geweest en het was er onzettend heerlijk.
De eigenaren zijn heel erg behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Het uitzicht is mooi zeer veel roofvogels in overvloed, zelfs dwerg uilen gezien!
De steden en dorpen er om heen zijn prachtig en een reisje naar Cognac of iets verder weg Bordeaux is zeker de moeite waard.
Rijden door de omgeving en picknicken in de natuur is overheerlijk en er zijn tal van kastelen in de buurt die een bezoekje waard zijn.
De gite is goed ingericht en zeer schoon, alles in aanwezig wat je nodig hebt.
De eigenaren hadden zelfs nog een BBQ gekocht op de dag van onze aankomst.
Er zijn een aantal restaurantjes waar je de lokale keuken kan proeven.
Eenvoudig maar echt lekker.
Echt een negen waard en zeker aan te raden.
