Cycling in the Limousin

The roads of the Limousin are a cyclist’s paradise. Well maintained and virtually traffic free, they offer routes of every distance which will take you through gently rolling hills, chestnut woods, pretty stone villages and grand châteaux. Bring your own bike to Le Moulin de Pensol and let us collect you from Limoges airport – […]

Summertime – when the living was easy

Summer 2019 was when Le Moulin de Pensol, as a business, really found its feet. Our B&B rooms were open, and the gites were full. We met some wonderful people and our market from the Netherlands, Belgium and France grew – which we were delighted about, particularly given the current fiasco taking place in the […]

D Day

This blog is about cheese. Just kidding, it’s not of course, it’s about donkeys. Because EVERYTHING is now about donkeys. Because we now have three donkeys. Hadn’t you heard?Well where have you been? Certainly not on Facebook, clearly. t all happened rather quickly. We had always talked about getting donkeys (and hens and goats and […]

Pâques-ing it all in.

Sometimes it helps to have a deadline. As you will have seen from Facebook, we have been working on our new chambre d’hôtes (B&B rooms) throughout the winter. We just don’t seem to be able to finish them. We still need a double bed for one of the rooms. The other two rooms have charming […]

Jasper the Romanian Rescue Dog

For our blog this month I wanted to give a proper send-off to Jasper – a much missed member of the team. He was put to sleep on January 12th aged only nine, but his short life is a fascinating story. Jasper was born in Romania as one of the many street dogs out there. […]

Transhumance

We decided to do some training yesterday with one of our dogs, Wolfie. Wolfie looks like, as his name suggests, a scrawny wolf who has been put through a hot wash. He has a beautiful coat in 50 shades of grey, which provides him with near-perfect camouflage in any given habitat. In heaths, dunes, woods […]

Christmas Cultural Confusion

I made a batch of mince pies yesterday. This involved buying some mincemeat from the humiliating “English section” of the supermarket which I normally never go in, where you can buy Marmite for €8 per jar, and several other strange products. I miss many things about the UK, but sandwich spread isn’t one of them […]

L’hiver arrive

Yes, winter is definitely coming. I have been slightly panicking for the last few months as I have watched our neighbours beautiful wood piles grow all around their properties. We have been so busy with end-of-season guests that we have not had time to concentrate on cutting, chopping and stacking our own wood. Actually the […]

Wild Swimming

A couple of friends who booked with us over the summer introduced me to the concept of wild swimming. The first was a marathon runner who did not seem to know how to relax and went for a gruelling run every morning. One day he discovered the swimming lake at Saint Saud and was then […]
