The Experience

Say goodbye to the rest of the world – you’re delightfully isolated here and it feels wonderful. Step inside to find high ceilings, exposed beams and creaky floors, and settle in with the hamper of cheese, wine and brioche.

With so many communal spaces, sharing a meal and chatting over morning coffee is easy. Take a dip in the pool before relaxing in outdoor nooks with your favourite read; fire up the BBQ in the secluded rear courtyard; challenge your dearest to a round of boules and ping-pong.

Head to Magnac Laval (10km) for the weekly market, restaurants and cafés; for more adventurous days drive 30 minutes to the sandy beaches of Lac St. Pardoux for water-skiing, canoeing, fishing and roaming the woodland. Work up an appetite before heading home for your alfresco dinner under the setting sun.

Reviews

We've stayed twice at this beautiful old barn! A huge amount of character, in a tranquil location, and the interior is stunning. The huge modern kitchen is a joy and the whole place is very spacious. Daily bike rides and walks are a great way to explore the nearby picturesque french villages. Lovely pool and a brand new hot tub!

We had a fantastic family holiday at La Grange. The house itself has so much character and charm. The kitchen is a great place to enjoy cooking and spend time together, I wish our kitchen at home was as nice! There were plenty of activities for the youngsters such as table tennis, badminton and swing ball as well as the garden being huge to play games in or just enjoy the peace and quiet of country life. Everybody loved the swimming pool and the hot tub is a real bonus. We’ll definitely be coming back.

Jan, Banbury

La Grange is a lovely renovated coach house. It is cosy, comfortable and practical all at once. La Grange feels like a home not just a house with its gorgeous family sized kitchen, and two separate lounge areas each with a fire or log burner. An idyllic spot to while away hot summer days, bike ride or just laze by the pool but I can also picture crisp cold christmas get-togethers en famille.

Location

The neighbourhood

Your neighbours are green fields, tall trees, and just five other properties in this small hamlet - the isolation is joyous. Ten minutes behind the wheel gets you to quaint Magnac Laval where you can wander the pretty streets and stock up on croissants; have a bite to eat at Café du Gare. Yoga classes and massages are just up the road or head off on the bikes to take in the beautiful Haute-Vienne countryside. Charming Limoges - famous for its porcelain - is a 45-minute drive and is good for shopping and museums.

Local points of interest from Matt Walsh-Woolcott

  • Sandy beaches and very large lake at Lac St. Pardoux - 30 minutes drive with large beach areas. Surrounded by woodlands, ideal for mountain biking, horse riding, jogging, and walking. 330 hectares of lake where you can take part in a number of water sports
  • Magnac Laval has an old quarter and delightful riverside. All the charm of rural France with supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Thursday is Market Day when you can shop in true French Style.
  • Use one of our 8 new bicycles to collect your croissants in the morning or to just explore the countryside at a leisurely pace..
  • Limoges is definitely worth a visit and famed for beautiful porcelain. Also worth visiting are Bellac, Le Dorat and Mortemart.
  • For those wanting to test their general knowledge there is an English quiz at L'Escapade Restaurant in Magnac Laval once a week.
  • 5 minutes down the road is Moulin des Combes a Naturopathic Centre with Yoga, Massages, Spa and general well being.

Matt’s family have owned their places in Portugal and France for 15 years. You make your booking with him, but on arrival you’ll let yourselves in with a key safe. At the Farmhouse Isabelle is your contact during your stay as she lives locally, and you may also see Julio, who pops round to clean the pool. At La Grange, Leanne and Neil are on hand to help if needed – they live around the corner.
