L'HIRONDELLE DU LAC CHAMBRES D'HÔTES

Welcome to L'Hirondelle-du-Lac Chambres d'Hôtes, a charming guest house nestling at the edge of the beautiful Peyrat-le-Château lake in the heart of the Limousin, in the area known as 'the land of Mountains and Dams' (Pays des Monts et Barrages), some 45 minutes by car from Limoges.

Our house dates from the 1950's and used to be the towns electrical fittings shop!! We have redecorated the whole house to accommodate our eclectic mix of antique, statement piece furniture & pictures alongside some of the original shop & house fittings. We have created a calm, comfortable & welcoming enviroment for you to enjoy.

Enjoy the undulating landscape, unique to this region of France, once part of Eleanor's Aquitaine. Marvel at the history buried within the many châteaux and castles, which lie along such famous routes as those of Richard the Lionheart and St John of Compostelo. Discover the countless walking trails and cycling paths, some only a stone's throw from our front door. Fish in our local lake with daily or fortnightly permits or simply soak up some rays around the lake's edge.

At Lac de Vassivière,(the largest man-made lake in France) only a few minutes drive, you can indulge in water skiing, sailing, kayaking and wind surfing as well as swimming and fishing plus new from Summer 2015 a paintball experience to remember!!. Explore the endless natural beauty of the surrounding countryside or wander amongst the forests, hills and valleys where famous members of the French Resistance hid during more troubled times and whose exploits are celebrated by monuments and museums.You can now walk the whole perimeter of the lake (36klm) or parts of it! The newly opened 'Sentier-Rive' (shoreline walk) opened in 2010 which has given access to undiscovered parts of this stunning mass of water & all its beautiful scenery. Free taxi boats can ferry you to Three different parts of the lake to embark on numerous walks, beaches & picnic spots.

Christopher and Frankie (Top left picture) will supply you with a comfortable room, a delicious breakfast and a home cooked three-course dinner (table d'hôtes) on request. We want you to have a fantastic time as there is so much to see and do, but we also want you to relax. L'Hirondelle du Lac offers a beautiful terrace for those warm & sunny days & evenings or a pleasant salon for you to enjoy in between the many excursions you'll want to enjoy.

The Limousin is beautiful in all weathers & at any time of year, which is why we are open from mid March to the end of November! Bring your binoculars & marvel at the abundant birdlife in the Spring & Summer, pack your paints & be amazed at the change of light & colour during the Autumn months & warm yourself in front of our log fire after a long winter walk. You will not be disapointed!

So! Why not visit us and discover the beautiful Limousin region for youself. Or stop by on your way to the Dordogne or pop over from the Auvergne. We're sure you'll want to return and stay longer on your next visit.
