Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

We had a wonderful stay and could not fault the property which was a joy to experience.
The interior was spotless and modern, the kitchen was well equipped and easy to cook in, the open plan living and dining space relaxing and the bedrooms extremely comfortable. The views outside were truly beautiful and it was perfect to make use of the decking area for either sun bathing or eating outside, not to mention the infinity pool for cooling down in. All in all a very relaxing stay.

What an amazing week in a stunning home. The house is exquisitely designed
and the attention to detail is fantastic.
The views are beautiful and the area so quiet and peaceful. I slept in one of the bedrooms on the ground floor and had the best night’s sleep I’ve had for years…the mattress is heavenly. Not many people can lie in bed watching red squirrels leaping through the surrounding trees can they! The small kitchen area on the ground floor along with the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms means the whole floor can be very separate and quiet if two families were to share the house. The middle floor is a great entertaining space with a spotless and very modern kitchen with dining/living area leading out to the garden and pool. It was a real treat to have the local bar/restaurant within a short walking distance. It’s very easy to sit and enjoy the local wine! The one thing I hadn’t bargained for was the abundance of wildlife, although with the roads being so quiet I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised. The red squirrels and deer can be seen from the balconies and fantastic infinity pool overlooking the valley. The cushions for the outdoor furniture are very comfy. Once again, there are various areas to sit/eat and enjoy the garden if different age groups or families stay here. So to sum it all up…a fab holiday home in beautiful surroundings – 10/10. PS If you attempt the puzzle in the games cupboard…start it as soon as you arrive because it’s tricky but irresistible!

Our stay was as much about the garden as the stunning house, the electronic gate at the entrance worked a treat each time we used it
Three of us each had a bedroom, and all the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen and lounge were fully equipped so we wanted for nothing. We linked our laptop in to the CD via a two-to-one 3.5mm jack lead which we take everywhere, so were able to listen to our collection of music through quite a reasonable hi-fi system. The large TV, although not HD, was great for any English programmes you just couldn’t miss, even on holiday! We made the ten minute scenic drive up to the boulangerie at Bertric-Buree for our baguettes, croissants and pain-a-raisins most days as there are no shops in Lusignac, just a bar restaurant.
The croissants were enjoyed sitting outside the kitchen/living room area on the middle floor, which has a stunning view.
For our first week, the temperatures were in the mid-thirties so it was lovely to cool off in the pool. With the pool being quite long, you could actually swim, rather than just splash about which was great to keep a little bit of fitness going.
Now the garden. As having a very keen interest in natural history, especially butterflies, we contacted the owner, and asked if he could leave the grass uncut, so that any wild flowers would be there to attract butterflies for our photography. He duly obliged. This resulted in a count of thirty one species of butterfly just in the garden, with another five spotted whilst out on our travels. Non-British species included Scarce Swallowtail, Swallowtail, Pearly Heath, Mallow Skipper, Map, and the star of the show, Large Blue, which were extinct in Britain until being reintroduced recently. The grass areas aren’t suitable whatsoever for lawn games due to the steep incline at the rear of the property and the layout of the front, but provided a fantastic environment for butterflies and other insects. This little area truly is a spectacular insect haven. This is without the lavender hedge which runs down one side of the entire drive.
No red squirrels, but we watched birds of prey circling as the farmer cut the field in the valley, and amongst other species of birds, there were a pair of Golden Orioles which flew by regularly.
If you are looking for a modern house in an attractive location with lovely pool, lovely view and ridiculous number of butterflies, this is it!

Fabulous house on the edge of the village with magical views and absolute peace and privacy.
We were thrilled to see so much wildlife, so many wonderful birds, butterflies, red squirrel and deer around the house. We flew into Limoges which is a tiny and very easy airport to manage. Car hire is just outside the exit, the roads are blissfully empty and the drive to Lusignac was a pleasure. We couldn’t have had a better week.

Sallie




A hidden gem in France, a great place to slow down!
The rolling hills, amazing pool and views to die for. Perfect.
