From December 2000 we live, Jan & Niké Kroes, with great pleasure permanently in the Limousin in France, together with our dogs and horse. In 2005/2006 we created 'Hameau des Chapelles'.
Hameau des Chapelles Around the Domaine there are typical small villages with friendly French people, the real French countryside, between 12:00 to 14:30 hours the stores are closed for the very important lunch. You'll have no mass tourism here. In Oradour sur Vayres are all facilities available such as: supermarket, butcher, bakery, grocery store, bank, pharmacy, doctor.
Hameau des Chapelles is a small holiday park with 6 wooden homes with plenty of space to each house and beautiful views. At the entrance of the park you will find our reception where you can check in and where we are waiting for you in the morning to arrange further information to provide to you any information or reservations for tours etc. At the reception we also have bikes available for you.
The park is located approximately 450 km south from Paris in the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord-Limousin, on a 5 hectare Domaine, lined with ancient oak trees and bushes and beautiful views over the hills. The region is known for space, tranquility, rivers, lakes and hills.
For the children there is a playground, there is a heated swimming pool 6x12 m, depth of 80-170cm, of course with sunbeds and umbrellas. A ping-pong table, a bowling alley and a tennis court must address the sporty man. There is also a large field to kick a ball.
In 2018 there will be a possibility to participate our ‘table d’hôte’ twice a week on our covered terras next to the pool. We’re waiting for the official permission from the townhall (permis de construire), which we expect to receive in february, so we hope to start building in march.
We are centrally located between three golf courses; Golf de Saint Junien, Golf de la Prèze et Golf de la Porcelaine.
We also hired 2 villas, which were very well equipped. We had a big family BBQ. I would certainly recommend these villas, for families or groups of friends, as you may have the best of two worlds, peace, quiet, comfort but with loads of space.
