Chez Paille Gites are sympathetically restored barn conversions, each sleeping 6 people in tasteful and modern decor. There is an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area and the property offers all modern conveniences with a dishwasher, washing machine, including a swimming pool, children's play area, wifi, etc. situated in over 2 acres of land.

There are outside dining areas - 1 to the front overlooking the gardens and pool, and a covered area to the rear, both with seating areas for 6 people.

There is also an above-ground swimming pool. 

Peaceful location in the stunning countryside often likened to the English Lake District due to many lakes and stunning scenery. Numerous man-made beaches and lakes nearby. 25-minute drive from Gueret where you will find large supermarkets and shopping centre. It offers a relaxing holiday but is also close to other activities including golf, fishing and wolf park.

We are located in the Creuse department with its stunning scenery and many lakes. There are numerous local activities and things to do in the area or you can just relax on a sunbed around the pool. 

The Limousin is popular for the beef, mushrooms and foie gras. Chez Paille is situated close to restaurants and bars but you will need your own transport.

  • Rural farm site in the peaceful Creuse countryside

  • A 15-minute drive from Château de Villemonteix; 25 minutes from Guéret

  • Bike hire, games room, outdoor pool and play area

Get a proper rural fix at Chez Paille Gites et Camping, a relaxed farm site in the peaceful Creuse countryside. Small in scale, it combines cosy French farm vibes with gorgeous rural views that just go on and on…

You won’t need to go far to find areas for stretching your legs here: riverside walks can be sorted in Busseau-Sur-Creuse (10 minutes' drive), while strolls around regal-looking ramparts are on hand at Château de Villemonteix (15 minutes). Bikes can also be hired by those looking to explore the many country lanes that surround the site.

Weary travellers who have puffed themselves out are pretty sure to find rest and repose back at base, where there's a rather inviting outdoor pool area. Activities for the small sorts (who, inevitably, will still be full of beans) are also set up: there's a play area for self-organised outdoor ents as well as a games room for indoor play.

Fancy a petit pique-nique? Barbecues are provided at Chez Paille Gites et Camping Or perhaps a sit-down bistro meal? Busseau-sur-Creuse has a couple of well-liked restaurants; for a wider choice of regional gastronomy, you'll want to head to Guéret (25 minutes' drive).

Pottering around local towns and villages is always a good way to get the measure of a place. The waterside town of Busseau-sur-Creuse (10 minutes' drive) is as good a place to start as any – while you're down that way you may also want to check out the Roman bridge and medieval abbey of Moutier d'Ahun (10 minutes).

Castles in the region include Château de Villemonteix (15 minutes) and its intricate wall tapestries and Château d'Étangsannes (20 minutes), where guided tours of the elegant buildings and grounds can be sorted. Guéret (25 minutes) also has an archeology museum if you want more historic artefacts to stick your teeth into.

Around Guéret there are oodles of waymarked trails, beauty spots and geological sites like the Pierres Civières (35 minutes). This area of mid-sized hills, known locally as the Monts de Guéret, is also home to the Wolves of Chabrières (30 minutes), a wildlife park where you can observe long-fanged packs skulking between the trees or tucking into their dinner. There's also a mega maze on offer at the Labyrinthe Géant des Monts de Guéret (25 minutes), where jumbo-sized board games and other family activities can also be found.
