If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing time to unwind from everyday stress then this is the place for you! Equally, if you are looking for activities or places to visit then La Varache is an excellent base from where to explore the surrounding countryside and attractions.

The accommodation in the well equipped and furnished Gite at La Varache caters for up to 15 people and is set in 45 acres of pasture and woodland surrounded by forestry land. The river Vienne runs alongside the property and is excellent for fishing.

La Varache was used by the French resistance during WW2. They blew up the train viaduct in March 1943. Photos and details are available at the local Resistance Museum.

On the property you will find a variety of small farm animals ranging from chickens, geese, ducks and rabbits which are all free range. We also hav...

We so enjoyed our travels to La Varache. From the patio of the gites, the view of the beautiful valley is serene and relaxing. There are many walking paths with spectacular views of the valley and from the tops of the hills you can see...More

About the neighbourhood
The local village of Eymoutiers has a produce market every Saturday (as well as 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month) where you can wander by the many stalls to purchase a variety of delicious local cheeses and homegrown produce. Don't worry about parking. Eymoutiers hasn't yet heard of pay car parks or meters!

In the east of the Haute Vienne, Eymoutiers sits next to the river Vienne. Once a town of hide-tanners, many of the houses retain the original tanning lofts. The Romaesque church of St Etienne, the impressive Mairie and the Libary are just some examples of the beautiful architecture of the town and of this region.

Eymoutiers is well placed for all kinds of recreation. Just 15 minutes’ drive north east of the town is lac de Vassivière, which offers water sports, beaches and...

Directions To La Varache


From the A20 (Limoges) you take exit 35 (Direction Eymoutiers/Lac de Vassiviere) which becomes the D979. You follow this route for about 35 kms towards Eymoutiers. Before Eymoutiers there is a little village called La Veytisou. Once you have passed through this village you will take your first left. It is signposted the C13 to La Foret. Follow this route and keep to your right towards La Foret. At La Foret you take the first main road to your right.(It is a very sharp turning on the corner of a house). This is the D129. Follow this for 2 kms or so and you will come to a fork in the road and see a sign to the left signposted for La Varache. Follow the road down the valley for 2.5 km and after the black sign for La Varache take the first right up our dr...
