France is currently back in lockdown so no-one is going anywhere at the moment, certainly not on holiday. But, and yes the but is a big one with lots of added ifs, if this damned virus recedes enough to allow travel into other towns, regions and even countries, we will be here, ready and very much able to welcome you to our new gite, La Terrasse du Citron. It’s ours from early June and for the rest of the month we’ll be making it shine; making it a comfortable, characterful and perfect gite, just a few minutes walk from the chateau and centre of our beautiful home town, Rochechouart.
The gite will be available to rent from 3rd July this summer, so we’re keeping everything crossed that science, nature, human behaviour and just a little luck will be having the required positive effect on the virus to allow visitors to our lovely home town. Rochechouart is already looking beautiful, but it needs people and visitors to bring it to life. We aim to put the gite on two hosting sites, the first of which is Airbnb, the fastest-growing holiday rental website with huge public awareness worldwide. The second is work in progress but we can at last start to advertise Le Terrasse du Citron. We are very much available to take bookings. If anyone has any questions, booking enquiries or would like more information or photographs please do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
Whilst France is still being gripped by covid we expect little in the way of bookings or enquiries, but we’re hoping after the April lockdown and the promised escalation of vaccines that the country will once again be able to open up. Our fingers are very much crossed that by July we will be able to welcome visitors from not just France, but from any country who want to savour the natural and cultural beauty of Rochechouart and the Haute-Vienne. We are also less than 3km from the Charente region and just 25km from the Dordogne, in a region rich with, and I quote from the Périgord-LImousin Natural Park website…
“Picturesque villages, diversity of its landscapes, varieties of its productions, numerous activities and for all ages… everything here exudes the generosity of an environment in harmonious balance between man and nature. The Park therefore invites you to meet, discover, smell and feel its territory… around a drink, an Assiette de Pays®, a castle or even in the heart of a landscaped natural site, so many possibilities to discover the many riches of the Park!”
We very much hope to welcome you soon!
