Excellent place to stay with very helpful owners. Swimming pool, games room with ping pong and fussball, 2 bedroom gite, with kitchen, fridge, small freezer, oven microwave, toaster, and dishwasher. Living room with satellite English TV, shower. All set in a quiet rural piece of the French countryside. Large grounds to walk around and country lane to wander and see the cows nearby.


It is with regret & great disappointment that due to the coronavirus, we are postponing the opening date of Reids Retreat (01/May/2020). May 2020 guests have been informed & refunds paid in full. We will keep in touch with our future guests with updates from the French & English authorities. Any of our guests that can’t keep their booking dates due to rulings by the French or English authorities, will be refunded in full. We all look forward to things returning back to normal & welcoming you to Reids Retreat.
95 Euros per night for the whole Gite     <click here to see our calendar>

We invite you to come and stay for a taste of French life here in your own private self catering Gite, nestled within the beautiful undisturbed Limousin countryside. You choose your own pace of life here from one of romantic solitude or exploring daily, the French culture of food & wine, town markets, glorious lakes, historic chateau's & a never ending variety of walks & drives within what feels like days of old.

Unfortunately we do not accept any dogs/pets.

We have just the one delightful detached Gite & this will be all yours for your very own use.
It sits in 3 acres of secluded gardens & land for you to walk around & take in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
When you enter the open plan Gite into the lounge, you have two large double sofas, soft lighting, English satellite TV, DVD player & a selection of DVD’s, books & games.
This leads on to the dining area with large table seating 6 people.
Carry on through to the kitchen with fitted kitchen cupboards/worktops, double sink, dishwasher, gas oven, fridge/freezer, microwave & toaster. All kitchen utensils are provided along with sponges & tea towels.
The toilet & shower room has a good sized shower with wash basin & toilet (bath towels are included).
Upstairs, we offer 2 spacious bedrooms one with a double bed & one with a king size bed with window view of the garden, surrounding hills & trees (all bedlinen provided).

To the rear of the gite is a decked area with table & seating, BBQ & more beautiful views.

You will have exclusive use of the large decked swimming pool (32'X16'X4') with sunbeds & easy seating (pool towels provided). In the pool house you will find cold drinks, crisps, nuts, chocolate bars, ice lollies etc (honesty box).
