Cheissoux Rooftops

The gite ‘Le Chardon’ (Thistle) is located on the edge of the small rural village of Cheissoux. Cheissoux is in the French Department of Haute-Vienne, in the Limousin region at the heart of France.


Cheissoux is a small village of just over 200 people and is at the gateway to the Millevaches Plateau Regional Natural Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Lac de St. Helene

The Millevaches Plateau is in the heart of the Limousin mountain territory on the buttress of the Massif Central and extends over Limousin's three departments: Creuse in the north east; Haute-Vienne in the north west and Correze in the south.


During the summer months there are concerts, music nights, fetes and vide greniers (boot sales) held in Cheissoux and surrounding towns and villages.


Beach at Lac de Vassivierre

Why not enjoy traditional cuisine in the Auberge de la Fontaine, Cheissoux's local restaurant and bar located next to a charming XIIIth century church. The lovely Lac de St. Helene with it's swimming beach is just 5 mins away.


Local facilities including shops, bars, restaurants, modern sports centre with indoor, heated swimming pool and sauna can be found in St Leonard de Noblat (13mins) and the much larger Lac de Vassivierre (25 mins) has several swimming beaches, a water taxi and a floating restaurant.
