Location

The property is located in open countryside 55 km North of Limoges between Bellac and Montmorillon.

The local village (3 km) has 4 bakeries, 2 pharmacies, charcuterie, supermarket and newsagent, a shop with regional products, a weekly market and a number of cafés.

Every other Thursday in July and August the 'Marché des Producteurs' is an evening farmers' market with a vast choice of produce, some of which can be grilled for you on the spot!

Limoges: (55 km), the closest large city has two interesting cathedrals and, being the home of French porcelain, a number of factory tours from the various manufacturers still based there (with shops attached). You can also visit the mediaeval butchers' district built in 1471 with its half-timbered buildings or stop for lunch at one of the many restaurants in the city centre that offer world famous Limousin beef.

Oradour-sur-Glane (45 km): the martyr village, now an important national monument and a reminder of the horrors of war. An interactive visitors centre clearly explains the facts in English and French.

Other towns of interest close by include: Montmorillon (28 km), known as the 'city of writers', Saint-Savin (45 km) with its Abbey church and 11th and 12th century murals (listed since 1983 as a UNESCO world heritage site) and Poitiers (75 km). Called the city of a hundred bells it has a combination of interesting architecture, a wide range of shops and the high-tech Futuroscope park located to the North.

Activities: if you want to expend some energy there are plenty of activities located close to us. The regional kayaking centre is at Lathus (13 km) and apart from being able to canoe down the Gartempe river, they also offer white water rafting, horse riding, rock climbing and archery. An 18 hole golf course is at Saint-Junien (45 km) which has a welcoming club house and is set in a stunning natural park.

Reviews

« We have just returned from our stay at Le Chiron with James Holliday and wanted to let you know that the accommodation, location and hospitality was excellent and certainly the best we have all stayed in - certainly 5 star in our view.

The attention to detail was incredible and we wanted for nothing. James was charming and very helpful and we would certainly use your company and this property again. »  Curtis

« To say we had a wonderful time is an understatement. The château, the food and your attention to detail was “magnifique”. »  

« Thank you for a wonderful week. The château is beautiful. We have had a great time. »

« Thank you for an amazing two weeks. The swimming pool was great. »  

« A lovely two weeks, we have all had a great time. See you again soon! »  

« We have all had an absolutely amazing time at the chateau and would love to stay forever. The house and grounds are stunning and the kids have lived in the pool and turned into water babies ; this is where they have learnt to swim underwater and without bands so truly memorable moments. We will not forget our time here and it was a real pleasure to meet you. »  

« Thank you for an amazing holiday. It's been the most relaxing break we’ve had for many years. This is also such a lovely part of France. We certainly hope to return - I’m not sure if anywhere else could live up to this. »  

« Just wanted to saga massive thank you. We've had the best holiday we've had for years, so relaxing!! Your hospitality and food has all be amazing and the house is truly wonderful. Definitely hope to return you've spoilt ss too much now. »  Wells family

« Well what can we say? Château de la Brame is just fabulous! A complete home from home, with everything you could ever need or wish for. We have had a wonderful week spending days by the pool in the glorious sunshine, sampling the delicious local food and wine and exploring the local area. We would love to come back one day for another family holiday. One week was not enough. »  

« The first time we came to Château de la Brame was a wonderful surprise! The elegance of our surroundings, your arrangements were all  o perfect, and we had a superb week. This, our second visit, may not have had the surprise element but we have, again, had the happiest and most pleasant time here. »  

« What a super time we have had at Château de la Brame. Everyone has loved it. They will spread the word. We have loved the pool and the food has been amazing. Thank you for everything. »  

« We can’t believe our luck in discovering the château almost by accident. We’ve read the book and everything we think and feel about this special place has been written before. Just to say that you made it a very special week for us. We’ve been waiting for this celebration of our parents 50th wedding anniversary for so long and it has been so much more than we hoped for or expected. We are now trawling through our diaries to find an excuse for another visit and are wishing our time away until we can come again. Many, many thanks for an unforgettable time, you are a perfect host. »  C.S - Dorset

« We concur wholeheartedly with everything written on earlier pages! The château is fantastic and we have had a wonderful week celebrating Sarah’s 50th. A special mention, however, for the superb dinner on Saturday and your happy company. Thank you. »  S.W - London

« Thank you so much for making my 40th birthday so lovely in every way. I can’t think of anywhere I would have rather been! Everything was perfect, food, wine & company and thank you for all the laughs. »  D.E - Cheltenham
