Coin Perdu, our home in Puy d’Arnac

One day we started talking about getting  a small cabin in the mountains. We love the mountains.

One weekend, on the way back home to Tours from Toulouse, we  impulsively turned off into Donzenac, immediately fell in love with the area, arrived home and started our search for a little cabin in the mountains. In the end it didn’t turn out exactly the way we had in mind, but then,  it never does! It always turns out better. We found our house in Puy d’Arnac.

Welcome to Coin Perdu, our home in Puy d’Arnac, Corréze, where time seems to stand still, where the animals live shamelessly and nature grows wild and undisturbed, where the brooks take spontaneous turns and where the soul roams free.
