Comfortable self-catering holiday house for large groups, Haute-Vienne, Limousin, France

Sleeps 14, 6 bedrooms. Price From £600 Per Week


This beautiful self-catering holiday cottage, or ‘gîte’,  is situated in the heart of the rural and friendly village of Saint Germain les Belles, just 30 minutes south of Limoges, in the stunning Haute-Vienne region of Limousin. This traditional Limousin village house enjoys a central position on a quiet street off the main road. It has been completely renovated throughout to provide family and wheelchair-friendly accommodation for up to 14 people within 6 comfortable bedrooms, 5 of which have private ensuite bathrooms. It is also pet / dog friendly and the large, enclosed garden is ideal. Free Wi-Fi internet is also available to all of our guests. The ground floor is accessible to wheelchairs.


The large, well-equipped kitchen

The kitchen is designed for large self-catering groups and families who enjoy ‘eating in’. The centrepiece of this room is the very large kitchen table which can seat  up to 14 people. You will find a big gas oven and also all of the other features that you would expect to find in a modern kitchen – dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, coffee maker, toaster, together with cupboards full of crockery and cooking utensils.

Put your feet up in the cosy lounge

The lounge adjoins the kitchen to make one large, family-friendly, open plan space. There are comfy sofas, a television with UK satellite free view channels, wifi internet connection, ipod docking station and a DVD player, complete with a library of films for children and adults. Although there is central heating (in every room) there is also a wood burning stove for extra comfort on chilly evenings. Disabled guests have wheelchair access into the garden via the French windows and access ramp.

Choose from 6 bedrooms, 5 with ensuite bathrooms

There are 6 bedrooms, tastefully furnished with original wood flooring, two of which are on the ground floor.  There are 13 single beds (5 rooms have 2 beds and the largest family room has 3). This makes planning sleeping arrangements really flexible for mixed groups of friends and families, as we can move the beds around or together, to suit your needs. We also have 3 baby cots and 2 extra, folding beds at your disposal.

The Bathrooms

5 of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and each is equipped with a WC, sink and bath or shower. We frequently receive comments from our large groups and families about how grateful they were that they didn’t have to queue for the shower!

Wheelchair Accessibility

Whilst renovating the house, we realised that it was very important that guests who use wheelchairs should be able to access as much of the ground floor as possible. If you would like further information on the suitability of the house or the accessibility of local places to visit, please do get in touch.

Family and Baby-Friendly Facilities (and we are pet-friendly too!)

We provide many items to make holidaying with young children as easy as possible – there are 3 baby cots, 3 high chairs, cutlery, toys, books, changing mat and table, baby bath…. If there is something missing from the list, please tell us what it is and if we can use it for future groups, we will have it ready for you at no extra cost! We also offer a pre-visit shopping service – just email us a shopping list a week before your arrival!




The attractive, paved terrace (complete with large dining tables, benches and loungers) is the perfect place for relaxing on a warm summer’s evening, gazing at the beautiful Limousin countryside. The large, enclosed lawn area (very useful if your children / dogs like to wander off, like ours!) backs onto open fields and meadows. We also provide a very large barbeque to cater for our groups.




The gîte is located in the heart of the village of Saint Germain les Belles, in the Haute-Vienne department of Limousin, 30 minutes south of Limoges. Post code: 87380.
