  • Description

    Description

    We made this radical life change in 2000, when my husband and I came to the Limousin and have restored this magical 15th century chateau into a bed and breakfast and we serve the evening meals with vegetables from our organic garden. Besides the small bed a breakfast business,
    we have a 36 hectare estate to look after as well as horses to ride, highland cattle and sheep.
    The 12th century Chapel that my husband has been working on these last 4 years is finished but there is maintenance work of the grounds.
