The Accommodation


“A beautiful little home in a beautiful part of the French countryside!”


Formerly a worker’s cottage, bread oven and pigsties, La Charnière is now a beautifully restored one-bedroom cottage offering a secluded retreat for couples or individuals in the heart of the Limousin countryside.  

La Charnière is tastefully and neutrally decorated and furnished giving a cosy and homely feel.  It is finished to a high specification in a contemporary style, but retaining a wealth of character features. It offers a well thought out, generous layout ideal for two.

The lower split level offers guests a cosy lounge with underfloor heating and wood burner, a modern and well-equipped kitchen, dining area (which can also be used as a workspace) and a bathroom with walk-in rainfall shower.

The sleeping accommodation offers a comfortable super-king size bed on a spacious mezzanine level with views over the surrounding countryside. There is also a second sleeping option for non-couples as the lounge sofa also converts into a comfortable sofabed. The bedding is crisp and fresh and with the sumptuous feeling of a goose down duvet and a selection of pillows.

The property has an HD TV with Freeview and Netflix, a Roberts DAB Digital/ FM radio and Bluetooth speaker, USB charging points and WiFi. All bedding and towels are included during your stay. The kitchen is well equipped with an amply sized fridge freezer, gas oven and hob. All the usual cooking equipment is included, plus a stock of basic cooking essentials.


There is ample off-road parking and a well-lit private entrance. La Charnière has its own private outside spaces; a small and private walled courtyard to the front offering direct access from the kitchen- ideal for an evening aperitif- and also a larger enclosed garden area to the rear with a paved dining terrace, BBQ and lawned area for your exclusive use.

La Charnière also offers guests exclusive use of their own high-quality jacuzzi. The jacuzzi is nestled in the corner of the garden and is the perfect place to sink a few G&T’s as the sun sets. There is seasonal access to our heated outdoor pool (generally available between May and September as weather permits) which is accessed directly from the private garden and also offers sun loungers and a stylish covered pool terrace.

Aside from the pool, there are no shared spaces allowing you to relax and unwind undisturbed whatever you choose to do, making it easy to feel right at home. Whether you want to relax and bronze yourself in the summer months with aperitifs in the garden, have a base to explore or house-hunt in the Perigord any time of the year, or cosy up under blankets in front of a crackling log burner in the winter months, La Charnière is a perfect choice.

La Charnière offers guests a luxury retreat with plenty of extras included in our standard rate to make your stay relaxing, indulgent and enjoyable from the moment you arrive. See what’s included in Your Stay
