We spent 4 nights at La Porcherie Gite, we where house hunting for holiday home, we enjoyed our stay at La Porcherie it was very peaceful and very quite environment and it was in a good position to travel in searching for our dream holiday home in france.

“fantastic honeymoon stay”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a lovely week at La Porcherie as the second week of our honeymoon. It has been very well renovated and was a great place to relax. The terrace and pool area was lovely and very private. The kitchen was good, although it was equipped a little sparsely. Chris and Annie were very welcoming hosts, from helping us with our luggage on arrival to providing a nice welcome pack of wine and eggs, allowing us use of there veggie patch and inviting us for a glass of wine with them one evening. They also understood that this was our honeymoon and gave us plenty of privacy the rest of the time.

The location of the gite is excellent, and certainly not surrounded by tourist sights. Your own transport is essential but there was plenty of interest in the surrounding areas - lovely walks nearby, the Lac de St Helene, only 10 mins drive away was gorgeous, and the further Lac de Vassivieres well worth a good day out (and cheap too with free water taxis and parking). We loved St Leonard De Noblat, it was a real French town, with some nice boulangeries and places to eat. It is worth noting that you should not bother with Limoges on a Monday as the place was completely shut down and something of a ghost town - outside of this it is probably a lively place to visit.
