Activities

Your bicycles and motorbikes will be well protected in our secure garage.

Water sports and sun
Limousin has countless lakes and clear streams and is a delight for fishermen, swimmers and all other watersporters. Fabulous lakes are: Lac de Mondon of 15 hectares is only eight kilometres away from us, L'étang de la Chaume (photo) of 46 hectares is 20km away and the bigger Lac de Saint Pardoux (330 hectares) is 40km away.

Golf
The Mortemart golf course is 35km from your guest house; it is found in the village of Mortemart, which features in the list of the most beautiful villages in France. It has nine holes and is surrounded by centuries-old trees. Five other golf courses, with 9 or 18 holes can be found less than 65km away and some of them are among the most beautiful in all France.

Histoire et culture
Oradour-sur-Glane has preserved the ruins of what was a real village massacre. In 1944, 66 members of the SS killed practically every inhabitant. Only a handful of villagers managed to escape. An impressive monument marks this war crime and you can still visit the ruins of the burnt village which has become a kind of open-air museum where nothing has been changed since 1944.

The castles of Rochechouart, La Vauguyon, Montbrun and Châlus are worth seeing: they formed the line of defence of the viscounts in bygone ages. There are even more castles to be seen along the famous “Richard the Lionheart” route. You can see these historical routes by going on a variety of organised tours but you are also perfectly free to explore them on your own.
