About the property

2 Bedroom Gite With Sunny Terrace And Far Reaching Views Of The Valleys Beyond

Recently built two bedroom gite set in the beautiful Dordogne countryside sleeps four adults within a double room and twin room, but additional beds/cots can be added on request for additional occupants up to a total of 6.

Fully equiped modern kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, cooker and good sized fridge-freezer allows you to prepare lovely meals to eat on your private terrace or at the large dining room table or prepare a picnic to enjoy on a day out at one of the numerous attractions in the area. A washing machine is available within the spacious bathroom which includes a large walk-in shower. All bed linen, towels and final cleaning are included at no additional cost.

Amazing views of the Dordogne countryside will greet you as you wake up each day and access the terrace directly from your bedroom. You can relax in the peaceful, private surroundings or enjoy being more active at the lake in Tamnies, only 5 minutes away.

In a very tranquil setting, but within only 20 minutes drive to the medieval town of Sarlat, the amazing prehistoric caves at Les Eyzies de Tayac and the cave paintings at the famous Lascaux in Montignac. The rivers of the Vezere and Dordogne are both close by for canoeing and visiting numerous Chateaus, gardens and activity places for the children.

Le bonheur est dans le pré

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est dans un pre où courent les lapins. C'est une maison simple d'aspect mais très fonctionnelle, bien équipée, lumineuse et décorée avec goût. Les propriétaires sont très aimables et nous avons été accueillis avec plein de délicates attentions. L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter le Périgord Noir et la proximité d'un étang pour se baigner (drapeau bleu) est un plus avec de jeunes enfants.

The many attractions through the valleys of the Vezere and the Dordogne will take you from prehistory through to mediaeval times with numerous caves, chateaus, museums, gardens and other family friendly activities and visitor centres. These include the world famous caves at Lascaux (only 15 minutes drive) and Font de Gaume at Les Eyzies de Tayac (also only 15 minutes drive) where you can still see the original paintings if you get up early enough to get tickets! Not far from these is the Chateau de Commarque, whose ruins were rescued from the undergrowth only a few years ago and are still being revealed.

La Roque Saint Christophe is a fantastic example of the use of a huge cliff dwelling used from prehistoric times right up until the beginning of the 20th century. The views of this as you are canoeing down the Vezere river are spectacular. The views of the different Chateaus, including Chateau de Beynac and Chateau de Castelnaud are equally spectacular if you choose to canoe down the Dordogne instead or by visiting the Jardins de Marqueyssac or the fortified village of Domme you will see breathtaking views of the winding Dordogne river hundreds of metres below.

Also there are many opportunities to sample traditional Perigordine menus including duck and Foie Gras, which the region is famous for and sample the world famous wines of Bergerac and Bordeaux.
