Links & Recommendations
Below is a list of links to sites that we have found helpful or will simply tell you more about places mentioned on this site.
If you want a gite in our village, Le Grangeau may appeal, as it sleeps up to 7, has a lovely swimming pool and is on the outskirts of the village but just a short walk to the centre. Mark and Marguerite O'Donnell will look after you well. See the their website Le Grangeau.
Less than a couple of miles away in the village of St Éloy les Tuilleries is the restored farmhouse of La Borderie
. Mike and Kerstin have 2 beautiful gites in a lovely setting and they come with a swimming pool.
If you are in need of sustenance
Eating in the village then try La Part des Anges. Only open in the late spring and
summer but Manu offers the best local produce in the area. Best to book whether it's lunch or dinner you want. The terrace overlooking the river is a perfect setting. If you look on TripAdvisor you
can see reviews from diners.
Now closed until Spring 2017.
If you want a light lunch or just a drink then the Vert Gallant cafe run by Michel and Anderson is very friendly - and they speak English if you need it. They open around 12.00. On Monday
Market nights they do Trout and Frites and usually Moules Frites. That is the only evening they serve food but they do lunch 6 days a week. However, they are closed all day on Tuesdays. They close
for the winter months.
They are closing at the end of October until the spring.
Both of the above close for the late autumn and winter as they do not have much seating inside.
The Auberge Henri IV. Amanda and Danny have started with a zest for putting the auberge back on the map. They are open for lunch and dinner, offering a 3 course menu du jour. I think
Thursday is their day off!
We now have a small general shop and depot de pain. It is opposite La Part des Anges. Open Tuesday to Saturday in the summer 9.00 to 12.30 and then 5.00 to 7.00. Sundays is mornings only.
Closed on Mondays. In the winter months Isabelle is open only in the mornings. Various fresh goodies can be found there like quiche, slices of pizza to name but two. Service is always with a
And you can get a nice coffee while you shop at leisure.
Only a 10 minute drive away is a little rural gem of a place. The Auberge de Conceze, same village where they have the annual Raspbery Festival, is just superb. At lunchtime, they have a fantastic à la carte menu, 2 courses for €18 or 3 courses for €23 or a Menu du Jour which is 3 courses, no choices, but includes wine and coffee for just €12. You can see them in Trip Advisor. They are only open in the evenings on Friday and Saturday but will open specially for you on other nights if you are 10 persons or more and you pre-book. Food is excellent as is the welcome and the service.
Yet another possibility is La Table de Troche. The village of Troche is just the other side of Pompadour. It's run by Thierry and Sabine who used to be at the auberge here in Segur when we first arrived. Very good value Menu du Jour at lunchtime. 4 courses with wine for around €12.00. Plus an a la carte menu as well. Lovely terrace across the back of the restaurant. Again, have a look on Trip Advisor.
If you want a momento to take home or just love old things then pop over to the nearby village of St. Julien Le Vendemois where you'll find A & J Vintage Collections. They have a barn stuffed with all sorts of fascinating goodies including a superb old lorry awaiting restoration. Have a look at their website or find them on Facebook. Videos of the Correze, including the 2007 Jazz Concert in the village, from Correze Television Brive la Gaillarde - everything you need to know Rocher des Aigles - Birds of prey in Rocamadour Foret des Singes - Monkeys in Rocamadour The Lascaux prehistoric caves in Montignac Oradour sur Glane (The Martyr's Village)
If you have bought or are thinking of buying a place in France that needs restoration you might just be terrified at the thought of regulations, planning, artisans etc. If you want someone to help, either with the whole project or just some parts, then Steve Davies
may well be able to help you. He has done work for friends of ours in the village and is absolutely first class. You can see more about him on his website by clicking on his name.
If you have or are buying in the area and need work done then here are two recommendations:
Also local is Tom Moore
. His parents have a house in the village so I know them well. I have now used him myself and can confirm that he is very good. He did a great job for me on a chimney. Good workmanship, good price and done when promised.
Both of the above are registered properly and have 10 year insurance covering their work.
Some of the above sites are only available in French - if that's a problem I suggest you go to the site, copy the url then go to Google Translate and paste the url in to the "Translate a web page" and as if by magic it will appear in English - not perfect English but near enough.
