A corner of tranquility - 10/10
Excellent renovation of this well equipped and very functional cottage, contact with nature is all around,we had a great time, with the possibility of having fresh eggs daily. The children can play safely with access to and contact with two donkeys and a horse, chickens and a field to play and frolic. We were delighted to stay on this site that we highly recommend. While allowing privacy, the owner is available to answer all our requests and all the questions of our children ... Regarding the activities and sites nearby, we are on the Corrèze/Lot border, there is plenty to do without worries ... otherwise there is the Dordogne, Its gorges and lakes ...

Lovely owners, fabulous Gite, really peaceful and relaxing stay

We have been to Beaulieu before but this was the first time staying at this Gite. The Gite itself was great; modern, clean and spacious and well equipped with all the amenities needed for a family stay. The kitchen in particular was excellent. There was even tv with English channels, but we didn't actually watch tv, it was so peaceful and quiet and we were happy to just enjoy it. The Gite is surrounded by woods and the owners have chickens and donkeys on the land. My highlight was having lunch in the garden and the chickens clucking round eating all the scraps. The owners, Alison and Mark, are welcoming and friendly and available to help, answer questions or just chat with. I even got a cake when they realised it was my birthday! We booked for a week without kids, but by the end of the week felt really guilty because the kids would have loved it.

Nice large and well kept holiday home in beautiful surroundings

Everything is there in this house. Spacious, well-made beds and fine linen. The house is near the quaint village of Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne, but because of the incline on the return trip, it's quite a walk. This we had not properly assessed beforehand. It is nice and quiet. Mark and Alison are helpful when needed. We enjoyed the roaming chickens. The area has a lot to do: canoeing, show caves, many outdoor cafés or eating out. Because the kitchen is extensive furnished it encourages you to cook for yourselves.

A little message to thank you Mark and Alison for this first stay in La Chabanaise and tell you how nice it was! Your cottage is superb! Nestled in the middle of the trees and completely in nature, perfectly equipped, decorated very sympathetically ... If we add to this the fact that the village is nearby, the Dordogne also and the trees whisper quietly in the evening to rock us. .. And quite frankly it's paradise. Thank you again for your welcome, your kindness and this chocolate mousse to melt the taste buds of even those without a sweet tooth :)) We will come back, it's certain! Together, as families or with friends :) it's too cool !! So soon to share some beautiful moments and who knows ... singing some songs again.

Exceptional site in the middle of the countryside yet at the same time just a stones throw from Beaulieu. The gites are vast and well designed and fully equipped. The natural pool brings was very refreshing. We were a group of 11, with children and grandchildren, and we all had a great time. Mark and Alison are always available, welcoming and very friendly.

Superb gite

Very good stay at *Les Hirondelles". Cottage very well equipped, tastefully decorated and cozy. The natural pool is nice, my 11 month old loved to swim there. In the midst of nature, you have to make the most of it. Well located for beautiful walks in the area. Discreet, friendly and attentive owners with little surprises on the doorstep after the walks (fresh eggs, plums, jam ...).

Lovely gite

Everything clean, bright and comfortable. Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful yet a stone's throw from the pretty town. Mark and Alison are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Would definitely come back again and recommend it to friends.

Comfortable stay

Thank you, Mark & Alison, for your friendly welcome and for such a comfortable stay in this idyllic setting. We have been able to relax by the fire and watch stunning sunrises and star-lit nights during our short stay. The tranquility of La Chabanaise has cheered us while we've been experiencing the sadness of selling our house in Ménoire.

Beautiful and modern

Your gite is very welcoming, well equipped, modern and well organised, it's a shame we weren't here in summer to take advantage of the pool. We really liked the Christmas decorations. The pellet stove heated well and was very pleasant, not cold at all. Thanks a lot!
