The accommodation offered at Les Chambaudies Sud, roughly translated: The Beautiful South Lands, is situated in the great forest of Fayat, an ancient broadleaf woodland and rolling countryside. It is on a very quiet country lane serving only a few houses further up the lane. No through traffic as the lane loops back on itself. Nestled in a fold to the south side of the old hill fort of the Puy de Bar, now with its chapel and lookout at the summit. This is a beautiful, unspoiled corner, lost in France. The property is a detached fully renovated 200 year old farm cottage, set in a very large totally fenced garden. The garden has garden furniture, established great oaks and sweet chestnut trees. The English owner's living quarters are across the courtyard (not compromising the cottage's privacy) in a converted barn. This means he will be available for first hand help and advice if needed, but he knows how to be discreet! Beyond the garden are meadows containing the owner's hobby farm with pigmy goats, ducks, chickens and rabbits running freely about. The great charm of this area is its magnificent nature: the woods, lakes and streams and the peace and quiet. There are literally hundreds of lakes hidden among the forested hills. Two of the nearby lakes (2 minute walk) are at the disposal of the guests for carp fishing, on a no/kill no/fee basis. Streams and small rivers criss-cross the forest. Endless miles of forest paths await you, where you are more likely to see wild boar or deer than another human being. The area is a bird watcher's paradise with majestic birds of prey circling the skies above. The woods and fields are full of a fantastic variety of birds. Bird watching guests are amazed at the range of birds that can be seen from the terrace of the cottage. If your dog comes along: the owner has got two well-trained castrated male Border Collies. You must have a valid vaccination certificate for your dog upon arrival. Dogs are NOT allowed in the bedroom. The very well-functioning wood burning stove in the fireplace is the only source of heating in your home.

In the village of Chateau Chervix (3miles/ 4.5km), there is a general food store/post office/bank facility and bar. At about (8miles/ 12km), there is a large supermarket, doctors' surgery, bakery, bars and several restaurants.
You will be within easy reach of numerous beautiful sites to visit for which information is readily available at the cottage: castles, prehistoric sites, gardens, sites of natural interest, medieval villages, river valleys (Dordogne, Vezere, etc) and many more.
Sporting activities close by include: horse riding, swimming, tennis, canoeing, cycling, and adventure parks.

How to find the cottage From LIMOGES Take the A20 south towards Toulouse/Brive (toll free). Exit at junction 40 signposted Pierre Buffiere, Vicq sur Breuilh, Chateau Chervix. Follow signs to Vicq sur Breuilh and then to Chateau Chervix. At Chateau Chervix take the D70 direction Coussac Bonneval and then take the first road on your right direction Les Chambaudies. Follow this road for about 1.5 miles (2kms) pass the first road on your left signposted Puy de Bar, take the second on your left also signposted Puy de Bar. The cottage is the second house on your right with the big bell outside!
