Information

About

We are Ries, Tali and Kes. In an old camper with newborn Kes, we toured southern Europe with our family looking for a new home. At the beginning of 2015 our eyes fell on the 17th century porcelain factory and we fell in love spontaneously. Together with Tali's family we emigrated to south west France in September 2015. With grandiose plans and positive energy, we started to transform the factory, which had been uninhabited for 70 years, into a holiday paradise. So that not only we but also you can enjoy this beautiful place. We really like conviviality and there is always a relaxed atmosphere, almost everything is allowed.

We also hope to give you an unforgettable holiday on our small-scale holiday domain.

A bientôt et bon voyage!

History

About the house

It was 1770 when Marquis de Bonneval found the first well-known kaolin clay on their land. Still, it wasn't until 1816 that Marquis Hippolyte de Bonneval became interested in exploiting it. He had several porcelain factories built to process the white clay into beautiful porcelain objects. On January 25, 1827, the first Bonneval porcelain was fired in one of the factory's two kilns. The Coussac-Bonneval porcelain factory was in operation between 1827 and 1836.

 

After this, the majestic building functioned as a sugar beet factory, potato factory, housing, and when we bought it in September 2015 it was used as a cattle farm. This characteristic building was uninhabited for more than 70 years and we are the happy new residents of this building.

FACILITIES

There is entertainment on site for young and old. The new infinity pool of 15 by 6
meter is the jewel of the factory.

We had a great holiday here with friends, children and grandchildren. The house is very complete and cosy, the grounds are beautiful with all kinds of opportunities for the children to enjoy themselves. The contact with the owners was casual and pleasant, they were always ready to help if needed. The work they have done to renovate the factory is admirable, they have done it very beautifully and creatively.

We had a very lovely stay in La Fabrique. It is well equipped, tastefully decorated and caters for a range of ages. My grandchildren loved the Pirate climbing frame. The large dining tables inside and out provided the perfect space for family to come together over dinner! The gite is located near a small town with all the essentials and within easy reach of the lakes. We will go again.

The area is beautiful, cozy, interesting and not yet overrun by tourists. In short, a fantastic place to stay with a group of people in the French countryside. Recommended!

Week away with the family, we had a wonderful holiday! The accommodation is really nothing to fault and equipped with every luxury. The children had a great time on the estate. At least we now know where the saying like a God in France comes from... we will definitely be back!
