Les Geais

Holiday cottage in the heart of the Limousin


Kitchen Equipment

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine. A high spec. multifunction oven, gas hob and extractor. Fridge with icecompartment, combination microwave and a separate electric BBQ grill. There is even a stove top kettle and griddle pan to use on the wood burner.  Cookery book (for emergencies!) and we even try to leave some re-usable shopping bags.  Vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board and hairdryers.


For the most part heating is adequately provided by the wood-burning stove with an appropriate daily allowance of logs being included in the rental rate. With a bit of practice it will happily stay alight overnight and spring in to life in the morning.  Supplementary heating is provided by electric radiators and hot water is from an electric immersion heater. Showers in both the main cottage and the barn are thermostatic.


There is TV with French Freeview and UK Freesat stations and DVD player in the main house.  There is also a selection of DVD’s and board games.  English/French dictionary and phrase book and local guides and information leaflets.

WiFi is available with 4G (depending on carrier) or at the tourist office in Bugeat


Table and six chairs with parasol.  Charcoal BBQ.  Some outdoor games and a set of boules.
