Holiday Cottage On Our Organic Smallholding

Conveniently situated only one hour in each direction to their regional capital cities of Poitiers and Limoges, Chez Tartaud is surrounded by undulating farmland with tree-lined fields, cut into the dramatic rocky waters of the Gartampe river. Much of this landscape can be explored on foot or by bike on many of the leafy lanes (chemins) accessible directly from our smallholding where an abundance of flora and wildlife abounds. Bird-watchers and wildlife-spotters will love it here. You have access to the 12 acres of our organic smallholding. Our children love the animals, fresh vegetables, pond, fields, trees and the stream - we even have plans ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Lathus-Saint-Remy
About 1.5km by road (or chemin) passing the equestrian centre is the village of LATHUS with a small supermarket which includes the butchers, there are two boulangeries, florist, doctor, pharmacy, post office, bar/restaurant and bank.

Lathus dating from Gallo-Roman times, has its granite-built Church of Saint Maurice (12th - 13th Century) plus dolmen (rocks) of Marchain and several chateaux (e.g. Ouzilly, le Ché and Cluzeau-Bonneau).


The River Gartempe
Heading 1km in the opposite direction to the village from the cottage, you find the wild beauty of the Roc d'Enfer (Stone of Hell) astride the rapids of the Gartempe river.

In a quieter part of the river past the chateau de Chez Rogan but still within 1.5km of Chez Tartaud, is the small swimming beach, picnic area and an excellent restaurant.

A whole host of activities are on offer locally
on the river and at the neighbouring Centre de Plein Air and Equestrian Centre such as
* fishing,
* canoeing,
* sailing,
* tennis,
* mountain bikes,
* rock climbing,
* archery,
* horse riding and
* the educational farm.

Lathus is the regional capitol of canoe-kayak and is appreciated for slalom (class 3 & 4) with regular competitions and training events throughout the year.

There are a wealth of other activities and sights too long to mention on this site but are included in the Information Pack in the cottage.
Whether your seeking energetic and sensational sports or simply wishing to relax and enjoy the peaceful beauty (perhaps with a helping of local gastronomy and wines) I hope you have gathered a flavour of the area surrounding Chez Tartaud.
