Deni and Doug offer you a warm welcome to Chez Jallot, their Grand Designs manor house.
Set in the heart of France's least known Department, namely La Creuse, Chez Jallot offers peace and tranquillity in luxury accommodation. There is a choice of bed and breakfast [Chambres d'hote], with evening meals or self-catering holiday homes [gites]. Chez Jallot was recently rebuilt after destruction 70 years ago, and now presents guests with a delightful experience, combining modern facilities with bourgeois splendour in this beautiful old country manor.
The gardens offer many areas in which to relax, explore, mingle with other guests, to enjoy a quiet glass of wine and a good book. The surrounding areas offer unlimited walking, cycling and exploring and just a short drive away there are beaches and boating on lac de Vassiviere, perhaps the largest lake in France. The countryside, towns and villages such as Bourganeuf and Aubusson, offer the chance to explore la Creuse, France's least known department. And its easy to get here with low cost airlines such as Ryanair or Flybe flying directly into Limoges airport.
Chez Jallot was featured in Channel 4's Grand Designs Abroad, presented by Kevin McCloud. This UK TV programme is now broadcast throughout the world and you can often find yourself part of a multinational evening around the dining table.
