There are many possibilities for walks, there are beautiful walking routes with us in Orgnac and also in Le Saillant, Voutezac, Vigeois (the local tourist office is happy to provide you with maps).
Canoeing is possible in Vézère, with starting points in Le Saillant (5km) and Uzerche (15Km).
There are several mountainbike trails but also 'simply' cycling is possible although there are quite a lot of hills.
Lac du causse is a beautifully located recreational lake south of Brive la Gaillarde and it is possible to walk around it which takes about an hour and a half.
Lots of sights such as beautiful lakes, picturesque villages and pretty old towns.
Collonges la rouge, Turenne, Uzerche, Donzenac are medieval towns in the immediate vicinity with their own (festive) activities in the summer.
Arnac-Pompadour (approx. 14 km) is famous for its beautiful castle and horse racing. In summer, there are races on the Hippodrome almost every weekend and you can try you luck with a bet.
The castles: Château Hautefort, Castelnaud chateau, Chateau de Val, Château Turenne, Les Tours de Merle are definitely worth a visit for castle lovers.
And then there are the waterfalls of `Gimel les cascades` east of Tulle. A beautiful walk / descent which takes you along three waterfalls.
Brive la Gaillarde (about 22 km) is the 'big' city in the area with a very large market every Saturday morning, but of course also shopping.
In Objat (approx. 12 km) there is a lively market every Sunday morning..
Limoges is about 70 km north of us and is famous for its porcelain but the cathedral with a beautiful park around it is also beautiful for visits.
At 10 min driving is the recreational lake 'Lac de Pontcharal' at the town of Vigeois.
- Meadows and woodland
Fun and lively is the market in Le Saillant ( every Tuesday evening in July and August) and only 10 minutes from the gite.
You can buy local products here ( such as vegetables, cheese, dairy, meat and fish) which you can cook on the spot on one of the barbecues and then enjoy your meal with a bottle of wine and live music. A wonderful evening together with the locals!

Jurrie van den Born from DUIVEN,
We hebben een heerlijke week in Monteil 2 gehad. Wij waren met 3 kleine(re) kinderen. Voor hen was er volop ruimte om te spelen, geen autoverkeer dus alle mogelijkheid om er lekker uit te vliegen en een knus zwembad om lekker af te koelen .
Het huis is zeer ruim voor 6 personen, fijne grote leefkeuken, prima krachtige douche en de bedden lagen wat ons betreft erg prettig.
Maar... bovenal en het belangrijkste, Helen en Kees nemen de moeite om je welkom te laten voelen, staan klaar voor een praatje en kunnen je prima raad geven qua omgeving. Bij onze kleine vragen bleek niets teveel.
We hebben ons meer dan welkom gevoeld en bij deze nogmaals bedankt voor de gastvrijheid!
Groeten van Gerry, Daniel, Kristian, Isa en Jurrie.
Fam. Boegborn from Deventer,
Een heerlijk huis. Wij hebben hier echt genoten en hebben het geweldig gehad.
Helen (en natuurlijk Kees), dank voor de gastvrijheid. Het is zeker de moeite waard om een keer terug te komen.
