Other things to note

Junctions 21 and 22 of the A20 motorway are five minutes away. Limoges is about half an hour via the motorway, and Limoges airport 45 minutes away. There are budget airline flights to Limoges from various UK airports. Limoges is the capital city of the region, renowned for it's quality porcelain production, and is a great place for a day out during your stay. The region is now part of the new super-region of New Aquitaine.
The village is a mile or so along the road from the nearest town, St Sulpice les Feuilles 87160. It is a charming little town with all the facilities necessary for your stay, including a Carrefour Express supermarket, bars, restaurants, boulangeries etc. Just 15 minutes drive away is a larger town, La Souterraine, where you will find a larger choice of supermarkets and facilities, and there is a railway station for fast trains to Paris and to Limoges. Just one mile from the cottage is Lac de Mondon, with an open-air pool in season, a great little bar restaurant overlooking the pool, and some lovely riverside walks through medieval forests. The River Benaize at this point is known as 'Le Pot Bouillante' (The boiling pot) for reasons which become obvious after rainfall! The region is perfect for flea-markets and brocantes, which go on throughout most of the year, and you get to see lots of beautiful little towns and villages that you might otherwise never visit. A bargain-hunters paradise! There is a huge monthly farmers market, on the 29th of the month, all year round, at Les Herolles, which is a 15-20 drive away. It is said to be the biggest market in France and as well as produce, there are all sorts of animals, large and small, for sale. The area is also a fisherman's paradise, with river and lake fishing for all abilities. There is kayaking available along the rivers, watersports, and even micro-lighting and hot air ballooning in the region. You will also find very good golf courses. A must for a visit when in the Limousin is the poignant martyr village of Oradour sur Glane, the site of a massacre during WW2, where 642 villagers lost their lives. The whole village has been left as it was on the day, burned out, and a brand new village constructed nearby. You can walk around the streets of the old village, and there is a visitor centre. The site attracts visitors from all over the World.

Sam and Linda were great hosts during our month long stay in May. They made us very welcome and were happy to offer good advice when needed. They pointed out decent restaurants and various shops that would be useful to us. The accommodation was great. Clean and very comfortable. Nice large bedroom and shower. It was also nice having a garden to sit out in and share drinks with Sam and Linda. We stayed there with our dog Binks who soon became Sam's best friend. The accommodation is in a really good area. Close to a small supermarket, bars, shops, restuarant, leisure lake and the motorway network for travelling. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. They knew we were busy in the process of moving to our own home and even delighted us with a home cooked meal one evening. It was a lovely surprise and meant I didn't have to cook when we were shattered. I would truly recommend a stay here. The description was spot on and pet friendly. Well worth a visit and you won't be disappointed.
