How many people can actually say that they slept in a real train station? YOU?
In the middle of the lush green hills of the Limousin lies the station 'Gare Blond Berneuil'. This rustic French station, full of character, has been converted into an atmospheric holiday home for 2-8 people.

We, Hans, Wendy and our children Madelief and Berend, live since 2007 in this beautiful part of France. In 2001 we 'ran' against this former station. The wonderful relaxed holidays pleased us so well that we decided to live there permanently (albeit half a km away) and to take on a new challenge in France. We look forward to welcoming you in our station. Became curious? See also 'I Departure' from the TROS. Unsent at the end of 2007.

The salon was formerly the former arrivals and departures from the station and also 3rd class waiting room. It still has many details to remember the past. The desk, luggage counter, high ceilings, paneling etc. give the living room a rustic atmosphere. A huge fireplace creates a cozy heating in the lounge and also heats the upper floors. Extra local heating can be applied when is needed for.
This living room is the old ticket boot. Currently used as TV room. Through the glass wall of the counter, there is visual contact with the other living room. But without further noise TV, satellite receiver, DVD player and VIDEO Audio equipment
This space was formerly the luggage depot, but is now used as a dining room. The remaining suitcase desk is in an open connection to the salon. There is a large dining table with seating for 8 to 9 seats and is illuminated by a chandelier. In France, often the dining table is often the central part of the household. Here they eat and drink, of course, but even more is the place to sit back and read, talk, make plans, etc.
Each bedroom has its own intimate atmosphere. Spacious bedroom with warm turquoise wall has a spacious double bed and the authentic wooden floor.
A spacious, cozy bedroom with two old iron green cribs, which if necessary can be pushed together.
This bedroom is possible as children's bedroom to use two separate beds. If needed, there is a baby in the drive.
Sunny, cozy bedroom with the best view of the station. Double bed. Authentic wooden floor.
In this former kitchen of the stationmaster and his family is now a spacious bathroom. With separate shower and washbasin. The old high kitchen cabinets are still there and are now applying the toiletries, towels etc.
This space was formerly the waiting room "first and second class." This difference we use certainly not, but once they did. Nowadays it is converted into a well equipped kitchen with all amenities to make your stay as pleasant as possible, eg electric oven and hob, dishwasher. The kitchen is located near a grape covered terrace.
This spacious pool is cleaned using saline (5x less concentrated than the sea), and therefore one does not suffer from chlorine irritation. Due to the canopy it is possible (as soon as early April to late October) for outdoor swimming. The canopy can as desired be removed or partially opened (like a shell). Also, because the child safety the pool can be closed. Around the pool is a spacious sun terrace.

Hans en Wendy hebben ons een heerlijke vakantie bezorgd. Het mooie weer hielp ook mee, maar dat zij op deze mooie plek hun gasten een heel station mét zwembad ter beschikking stellen, levert bijzonder relaxte dagen op. We waren hier met zijn vieren en een hond, maar niemand liep elkaar in de weg. We badmintonden voor de deur, lazen lui een boek naast het zwembad waar de kinderen in plonsden en 's avonds aten we onder de pergola. Het geblaat van de schaapjes aan de overkant en de trein die voorbij rammelde waren de enige omgevingsgeluiden. Tel daarbij op dat Hans en Wendy bereid zijn stoomtreinkaartjes voor je te reserveren voor een dagtochtje, de restaurantjes in de buurt kennen én de leukste wandelingen en je hebt nergens omkijken naar.
Wat een heerlijk vakantiehuis! Het welkom met de eigenaren Wendy en Hans was ook heel vriendelijk en ontspannen.
We waren maar samen, maar ondanks de grootte van het huis, voelden we ons helemaal thuis. Heerlijk dat er een zwembad bij was!
Het is een gerenoveerd station en daar hoort natuurlijk een passerende trein bij... de eerste keren schrik je, maar zo grappig hoe snel dat went!!
In de omgeving waren er leuke kleine dorpjes om te ontdekken.
Kortom,... een aanrader voor grote groepen, maar zeker ook als je samen bent! Wij gaan zeker nog een keer terug!

Nostalgie in een typisch landelijke omgeving in het midden van Frankrijk. Voormalig stationsgebouw straalt de sfeer uit van rust, alle tijd van de wereld en romantiek. Omgeving is heuvelachtig met leuke oude plaatsen als Blond en Bellac in directe omgeving.

Reviews must be respectful
We expect you to write family friendly reviews.
