Maison du Hibou Chambres d'Hotes Bed and Breakfast

Chez Lamay, Bosmoreau les Mines, France

Welcome to Maison du Hibou Chambres d'Hotes

Awarded the Hebergement Quality Award by Creuse Tourism, Maison du Hibou welcomes you to a tranquil location in the heart of the Creuse. 

This part of France is little discovered. It is only when you arrive here you will question why you have not visited the Creuse before.  It certainly is a place you will return to, time and time again. Please take a look at our website for further details and contact us with any questions you may have, we will be delighted to hear from you.

Bryan and Cath invite you to stay at Maison du Hibou.  Being motorcyclists, on and off-road, they understand their clients' needs and will help in offering advice on places to visit, roads to ride, tracks to venture on to, on two wheels, two legs or four wheels.   They both love their home and are more than happy to share their love of the area. It is in an ideal situation for both walkers, cyclists and motorcyclists, with tracks, paths and superb quiet roads right on their doorstep.

The Owl House has an acre of land, with large secure barns and ample parking.  They are surrounded by rolling fields and hills where you catch glimpses of deer grazing in the neighbouring fields at dusk, or a chorus of frogs can sometimes be heard calling, together with the owls at night.  There are also signs of foxes and hedgehogs too. Birdlife is abundant. In fact the moment you walk out of the front door you begin your discoveries.

The Owl Studio accommodates 3 people, with a double bedroom and a single bedroom, it also has its own separate entrance from the main house.  Inside you will find two shower rooms, two toilets, a lounge area with a log burner for those colder nights and a kitchenette. When leaving through the french doors, you have your own outdoor seating area on a private patio overlooking the distant hills.  Breakfast is normally served in the main house, but on warm mornings this can be served outside "alfresco"

There are securely locked barns for bike and motorcycle storage, and for the motorcyclists they can offer the use of a compressor, bike lift and a bike trailer for the unexpected breakdown.

In walking distance is a privately owned fishing lake for fly fishing with a "no kill" policy, also the Bosmoreau les Mines Velo Rail. The journey on cycle carts takes you through a beautiful canopy of trees to the outskirts of Bourganeuf. On the return journey, you can stop and enjoy a cool drink with snacks on the terrace of the old train station, built in 1883.  The medieval town of Bourganeuf is a10 min drive, a great place to explore, to sit and watch the world go by from one of its cafes, or discover hidden woodland walks. 

Further afield discover Lac de Vassiviere, Loups des Gueret, the Giant Maze, the Bison Farm and much much more.

Other major towns are Gueret 25 mins, Limoges  45mins and airport is 55 mins.

If you want somewhere to relax, to catch your breathe, or try something more energetic or adventurous, this is the place to be. The Creuse is beautiful in all weathers and is one of the least populated regions of France.
