Welcome to Maison Villebard Our 100 year old farmhouse is nestled in its own grounds of over an acre set in a quiet area of rural France, in the Limousin. We are just north-west of Limoges, the capital of the Limousin, famous for porcelain china production, in a region also famed for exquisite leather glove manufacture and with a lot of history to explore.
Our guest accommodation comprises of a beautifully appointed first floor apartment available to book for a self-catering holiday. This gite has a private entrance and is fully fitted with a modern kitchen, shower room, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. The living room area is light and airy with exposed beams throughout. We supply everything you may need for your stay and we include bedding and towels in the price. Guests will find a ’welcome pack’ which includes tea, coffee, sugar and milk. We are happy to pick up some fresh foodstuffs for your arrival, if ordered in advance. There is free WiFi available.
We have secure parking for cars and motorcycles, and a well-equipped workshop for minor repairs.
We are just north-west of Limoges, the capital of the Limousin, famous for porcelain china production, in a region also famed for exquisite leather glove manufacture and with a lot of history to explore. We are also about an hour from the TGV station at Angouleme which is on the Lille/Paris to Bordeaux line. The autoroute link to the A20 between Limoges and the north is less than hour’s drive away. For those who want to drive or ride down, the best route to consider may be via Portsmouth-Cherbourg (Brittany Ferries run a Fast Ferry at 3 hours) or Le Havre.
We are just 1.5kms north of the village of Bussiere Boffy, and half-way between Bellac to the east and Confolens to the west and St. Junien to the south, all with excellent shopping facilities! But Bussiere Boffy boasts a very early church with a leaning, twisted spire, a café/bar, grocer’s store, post office and a boulangerie (bread shop). There is also a tiny Tourist Office to help you plan your days. We are just south of the Massif Central and on the edge of National Forest and there are some terrific roads for those who enjoy bend swinging! (And we might join you!)
