Excellent accommodation in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We were looked after really well. The gite was lovely and clean with everything we required. It was a ten minute drive to Bergerac if we wanted a meal or to site see. There was a local river beach if we wanted a change from the pool. I would recommend it highly.

Delightful property in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at Vin Doux. The property has all the facilities we would expect to find in a regular family home and is comfortable and clean. The pool is maintained daily and our bedding and towels were replaced weekly.

I would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break in the Bererac area.

Grande maison largement suffisante pour 8 personnes. Nous avons réellement apprécié la piscine juste en face ainsi que la fraicheur de la maison. Tout le nécessaire était réunis (voisins charmants et très sympathiques) pour passer de bonnes vacances reposantes. C'est une location où nous serions tout à fait disposés à revenir. État de la maison impeccable ainsi que la gestion de l'entretien.

La Forestine is situated in the heart of the country yet is only 15 minutes away from the bustling market town of Bergerac.The Dordogne is a wonderful area which really does have something for everyone. The entire region is steeped in history going back as far as prehistoric times with many examples of cave paintings. In nearby Bergerac you can enjoy a wide variety of pavement bars and cafes, as well as a very good choice of shopping. In addition there are a number of weekly markets where you can purchase local produce and other goods. Some of the best restaurants in the entire region are situated in the Old Town. In the surrounding area you can visit the many châteaux and vineyards, canoe down the Dordogne, visit other historic towns in the area such as Sarlat and Perigueux, or simply relax in the countryside.
