About Les Trois Chênes
I am Irish but was born and raised in Zambia and for many years we ran a safari camp deep in the wilds of the North Luangwa National Park. My husband Rod and I have swapped that for a life in France - we live across the way from the Gite in the old farmhouse (which we run as a Chambre d'Hôte) with our children, a couple of cats, a dog, rabbit and several chickens (some of whom remain outside). We are on hand to help should you need any help or advice about the local area.
Les Trois Chênes purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Les Trois Chênes chose Videix
Situated in the green heart of France - very rural and bucolic but within easy reach (15 minute drive) of supermarkets, restaurants, bars and banks. Very safe for families with young children - it is single level - and a delight for nature lovers.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lots of space and privacy for several couples to be able to share. Lots to do in the immediate area, cycle (we have bikes available to borrow), walk (there are several well marked trails), swim (in the nearby lake), bird watch (in the grounds and around) or visit the local towns, villages and points of historical interest.

Very well equiped property in a peaceful location. It is just like the description and photographs. It's a stone building so was still cool even at 40degrees.. There is also shade outside under the vine. We found it difficult to force ourselves out. The owners also run the guest house next door you must eat there Maelisa's food is amazing. There are no shops in Videix but several good supermarkets a few miles away. There is a good sized freezer which we used for meat and bread to avoid too many shopping trips. On arrival there was a basket of home grown vegetables and salad waiting for us together with a delicious cake and jam. There was only 2 of us so to avoid temptation I sliced it and froze some. The roads in the area are in really good condition and so little traffic. We are hoping to return next year.
Hi Kathryn and Paul,
Thank you for your lovely review , we enjoyed having you to stay and hope to see you next year. Enjoy the rest of the summer,
Best wishes Maelisa and Rod
A beautiful Gite with everything you need for a relaxing stay
We really enjoyed our recent stay. Maelisa and family are so welcoming and helpful and the welcome basket of homegrown produce, cake and wine was a lovely surprise.
The Gite is spacious, comfortable and within perfect driving distance of various tourist delights.
The star of the stay however has to be LILO the gorgeous family dog who is so friendly. His daily visits just made our stay perfect. I would highly recommend a stay here, we certainly how to return!
Fantastic house in the country side
The house was fantastic ,nicely decorated and comfortable ,nicely equipped kitchen for cooking meals ,great outdoor patio and garden .Bakeries and grocery stores nearby . short drive to the dordogne region with excellent foie gras and duck confit .
The local lake (2kms away) has two beaches, manned with life-guards over the summer. There are also kayaks and pedalos as well as windsurfing and sailing lessons available, a snack bar and restaurants. There are lots of local towns and villages to visit - many of which have weekly markets (for example on a Wednesday in Piégut Pluviers and a Friday in Brantôme). The Martyr's Village of Oradour sur Glane is about half an hour away. The empty roads and tracks make for excellent walking and cycling through woodland and farmland and by various lakes, there is a surprising amount of wildlife and birdlife. We regularly see and hear Owls (particularly Little, Tawny and a pair or Barn which nest, appropriately, in our barn. Kingfishers, Dippers and Hoopoes are all regularly seen, Crane on passage and lots of birds of prey. The excellent local Adventure Parc in Massignac and Velo Rail are a great day for all the family.
