La Source

Chaumeil, Corrèze

Unspoilt, cosy village house for close friends or families within National Park. Lovely tree-lined swimming lake up the lane


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


A splendidly unpretentious and cosy house with thick walls, a huge fireplace in the sitting room, plenty of places to sit and a great wood-burning stove in the kitchen – you can cook on it easily, but there’s an electric oven and gas hob too. The 17th-century stone house has a pretty face with green and white shutters and sits off the main square of a typical Corrèze village. There’s a vintage feel inside: a free-range kitchen, lots of colour from rugs and cushions, stone flagged floors, antique furniture, original artwork. Massive worn granite steps lead upstairs to small but perfectly-formed bedrooms with fine cotton sheets and well-equipped, compact bathrooms with thick fluffy towels. There’s not a massive amount of space but it’s perfect for a group of close friends or a family with children. A lawned garden bounded by stone walls is yours to tumble out into, or wander up the lane to the swimming lake with handy lifeguard, views are to forests. There’s a bar and a good restaurant in the village, and a lakeside restaurant at Treignac, which also has a Friday market. Excellent value, huge fun.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sheila Schofield

  • La Source is steps away from the village square bounded by the 11th century church, ancient Marie and a bar that has changed little since 1550. There is also a friendly auberge serving meals midday and evening.
  • Both house and garden are entirely private. Our large stone barn keeps everything secluded. Wild flowers abound. Sections of the garden are kept as meadow and in In a ten minute amble in June we were able to count 40 different species of wildflower.
  • The Plateau de Millevache is a haven for nature lovers. Deciduous and coniferous woodland and moors are home to deer, wild boar weasels, stoats, hares and rabbits which support a large population of magnificent birds of prey.
  • Dating from 1640, our old stone farmhouse was once the village school and the granite steps are well worn by many little feet. The house will transport you to a world of tranquility and ancient charm.
  • The area abounds with natural beauty with many walks and cycle paths straight from your door. It is on the pilgrims' route to Santiago de Compostella and the occasional 'pelerin' will pass by with a friendly wave at all times of year.
  • As well as the auberge,you can eat all day long at the bar in summer and there is an abundance of restaurants within a 5 - 20 minute drive. The lovely beach and excellent lakeside restaurant is 20 mins away at Treignac.
