Holiday gite La Petite Maison is located in the beautiful Haute Vienne (87) 1 of the 3 departments of the Limousin.
Petit Maison is part of the small-scale holiday farm Le Montet. In the wavy landscape of the Haute Vienne you will find open fields, forests, small villages with rural houses, swampy valleys, rivers and for this region the beautiful Limousin cow. This cow can be found on the pasture the whole year round together with their calves.

30 minutes from La Petite Maison is the capital Limoges, a city with a lot of history and nice shops, definitely worth a visit. The capital is known for its Romanesque remains, its porcelain museums and factory, but also for its beautiful gardens and cathedral. If you go more to the west, you will find the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord-Limousin, beautiful villages and a recreation area near Bussiére-Galant where you can swim, there is a climbing route between the trees with a cable car, velo rail, mini train tracks for the children, swimming water with a beach and playground.
From the farm you can make great walks, but also in the nearby villages are marked walks from 6 to 16 km. The area is also very suitable for trained cyclists.

The Haute Vienne is a beautiful department where time seems to stand still, with old farms and beautiful nature. For many, the Limousin is still an unknown area and definitely worth discovering.

For shopping you don't have to go far, about 10 minutes drive from the house there is a large "Super U" shop in Nexon where everything is available and where you can also fill up. Also in the culinary field, there are restaurants in the vicinity when you don't feel like cooking. In the high season it is also possible to order a fries menu or breakfast buffet. Also a good start or end of your holiday.

    Wat een geweldige plek en wat een lieve mensen. Heel gastvrij.
    Heerlijk rustige omgeving, met af en toe het geloei van de koeien.
    Supergezellig huisje van alle gemakken voorzien.
    Mooie grote omheinde tuin, ideaal voor de hondjes. Die van ons hebben lekker kunnen rennen..
    Wij hebben de eerste ochtend een ontbijtje gehad en dit was uitstekend verzorgd. Genoeg keuze.
    Dit huisje is zeker een aanrader.

  • 9 stars

    Prachtige locatie, rust en ruimte op het Franse platteland. Ruud en Jolanda zijn gastvrij en staan altijd voor je klaar. Voor onze hond Hugo een mooie afgeschermde tuin. Wij hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad.

  • Hoorweg from Barendrecht,

    10 stars

    Fantasrische vakantieplek voor zowel kort als lang(er) verblijf.
    Zeer gastvrij. Eigenaren doen er alles aan om het je naar de zin te maken. Mogelijkheid om mee te eten (warme maaltijd) en/of ontbijtservice. Tevens mogelijkheid om zelf een maaltijd te bereiden in de gastenkeuken (voorzien van gasstel + oven).
    Zowel de kamers, tenten en trekkershutje zijn zeer comfortabel. Grote zonnige tuin (ook voldoende schaduw) met diverse comfortabele zitjes als ook picknicktafels.
    Divers speelgoed voor alle leeftijden (Duplo, knutselspullen, spelletjes, fietsje, stepje, vierwielers, tafeltennis, voetbaltafel, basketball, ruimte om te voetballen, enz). Zwembad.
    De rust en ruimte zijn de ideale plek om na een (lange) reis op adem te komen. Vanaf Limoges in een klein half uur te bereiken. De "omweg" meer dan waard.
    De gite is ook zeer comfortabel en van alle gemakken voorzien. Grote tuin. Tevens mogelijkheid mee te eten.
    Zeer goede prijs-kwaliteitverhouding.
