Châlus is situated in the department of the Haute-Vienne, a relatively undiscovered area, meaning quiet roads and peaceful trails, including the 180km 'La Route Richard Coeur de Lion' which runs close by and follows Richard the Lionheart's journey as he battled against King Philip of France (Lawrence of Arabia retraced the trail). Nineteen chateaux and ancient monuments make up the route; many of which can be found within the nearby area. The open plan stone barn still has many of its original features and there is a fully equipped dining area and galley kitchen. The first floor has an open plan bedroom and bathroom area, while the main bedroom has a double bed made from the building's reclaimed joists. There is also a beautiful Romeo and Juliet balcony overlooking the terrace and surrounding fields. A wood burner and heated bedrooms also means that this is a great option for spring and autumn when the region is at its most colourful.

Club Correze is in the Parc Naturel Régional de Millevaches en Limousin south-east of Limoges. It offers affordable hostel-style accommodation for groups, families and touring cyclists. The centre operates as an outdoors recreation centre for schools, sports groups and family breaks, and its owner, Clare, is keen to welcome more cyclists. There are marked mountain bike routes from the door, as well as quiet (mostly) car-free routes on quiet backroads for road riders. Choose from B&B option, or take Clare's full-board option with evening meals and packed lunches. This is one of France's quieter corners for cycling, with much of the Correze under-explored and free of traffic, making it an ideal base for either a longer stay or an overnight stop. From here there are good routes over to the coast, down to the Dordogne or north towards the Loire. Mountain bike hire available onsite, with hybrids and road bikes available locally. Free wifi. French and English spoken.
