Gîte de l’Œil is found in the beautiful hamlet of l'Œil, just 5 minutes from the village of Fursac, in the department of La Creuse. The gite was originally a farmhouse but had been empty for many years. We purchased the 1.5 acre property in 2020 and have since devoted our time into renovating the farmhouse into a stylish gite. Set in a rural and quiet location the renovations have been carried out sympathetically, to maintain the original charm of the house, while incorporating many modern features to ensure you have a relaxing and comfortable stay.
Gite de l'Œil can sleep up to 6 people, with two double rooms and a twin. The large attic double room has an en-suite shower room. The accommodation is of a very high standard with modern facilities. There is a well equipped fitted kitchen and a large, open plan sitting/dining room. Guests can enjoy access to our extensive gardens, with patio and secluded areas where you could enjoy a good book. There are many walking and cycling routes which can be accessed from your doorstep. For those who would like to venture further there are numerous places to visit including La Souterraine, our local town with a choice of restaurants, tourist attractions and market days, the medieval city of Limoges and the beautiful Valley of the Painters, a favourite among Impressionist artists. The gite is located on the route of ‘le chemin de Saint Jacques de Compostelle’, a network of pilgrims' ways leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
Gite de l'Œil is perfect for the best of holidays in France. Whether you are looking for a holiday full of cycling, walking, horse riding and fishing or a more relaxed time with wine and days lazing on a local lake beach - you will find it all in la Creuse!
