Set in the heart of France, the rolling foothills of the Massif Central and stunning scenery of Corrèze provide a great location for your holiday. Chateauret is a tiny hamlet in the commune of Espagnac, a sleepy but social little village well known in the region for it's Repas every Saturday night through the summer months. We are 30 minutes from the picturesque town of Argentat on the Dordogne river, and 30 minutes from Tulle the capital of Corrèze.
Corrèze is a natural paradise for many outdoor activities including Cycling, Kayaking, Walking, Horse riding, Mountain biking, Climbing and Sailing as well as having many tourist attractions to visit. Most of these activities available no more than 30 minutes from Chateauret and the glorious Cascades de Gimel are only 20 minutes from here.
Our newly renovated barn and extension provide stylish accommodation for up to 11 people, with all rooms having en suite facilities. There is a large first floor salon area with a cathedral ceiling revealing the original oak beams. Dual aspect windows give lovely views over the pool, lake and surrounding countryside. Comfy sofas, soft lighting and a log burner make this a lovely space to relax in at the end of the day in all seasons. A library of books and games are located in the entrance to the Salon, along with a CD player and large selection of local tourist information and maps.
Outside there are 2 hectares of grounds with a stunning pool area and lake, which provide a calm haven for total relaxation.
