About the property

2 bedroom cottage in a renovated XVIIIth century barn

Our Jardin du Périgord gîte is a cosy cottage with 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms in an XVIIIth century barn, with air conditioning, wifi, a private garden with a barbecue and a terrace.

The place has just been renovated and the structure has been preserved. You will love it, no doubt about that.

But the Dordogne is one of the largests French Départements, and if you are not careful, it can take you up to 3 hours on our winding roads to get to the stunning sites you have also come here for.

But we are located in what is called the 'golden triangle' of Périgord noir : 70% of the major sites are less than 50 miles away, so you will not spend the whole day driving.

There is Lascaux of course, but also some other stunning caves, literally hundreds of magnificent châteaux, quiet villages, local markets, canooeing on the Dordogne or the Vézère rivers, eating, drinking...

The infinity pool, sauna, spa, massage armchair, playing room, free bikes are to be shared with the other 2 cottages of our property, plus ourselves occasionally. Fancy a drink with us?

About Hugues Mantoux

In my early sixties, I am into prehistory, photography - and much more!

Hugues Mantoux purchased this house in 2016

Why Hugues Mantoux chose Cénac-et-Saint-Julien

In fact we were looking for a much smaller property with some charm. We never found it, so this one is rather vast!

What makes this house unique

Separated from the other cottages, 'Gites Jardins' has air-conditioned bedrooms, a private terrace and garden with a barbecue, while enjoying all the shared amenities (heated infinity pool, sauna, spa, massage armchair, playing room, free access to bikes).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Magnifique séjour dans le Périgord. Gîte très très bien équipé et très bien placé pour les visites. Piscine calme et très agréable. Merci à Bénédicte pour son accueil et sa gentillesse. A très bientôt !
