When we first saw the space we exchanged looks and came up with the plan how to make this work. We then shared this vision with a rather doubtful friend who was at the time contracted to make our dream come true. He listened in horror but then he got carried away with our enthusiasm and the plan for this gîte was born. It is a lovely open space with massive French windows looking into endless greenery where you find your private garden space. There is a cosy bedroom, open plan kitchen, living/ dinning area and a massive bathroom.
The Kitchen is fully equipped with all the things you will need for your stay, in the bathroom you will find towels and other essentials, bedroom linen is of course provided. This gîte speaks comfort, light and space with a warm feel.
To stay in touch with the world we ensured good wifi signal but we encourage you to forget the world and submerge yourself in here and now. Sunset, a glass of wine, nature all around you. However if you need something else to do there is canoeing, horse riding, hiking, cycling, Hot air Balloons; paddle boarding; kayaking; the opportunities are endless. For a great Summer night out you may want to pop along to the local villages where you will be entertained with either a night market or live music events.
We are 25 mins away from the airport and Bergerac centre. A trip to the most beautiful town of Sarlat will take you just under an hour along the Route de Frois Gras. On the way you will see beautiful towns like Baynac, Take the well worn track to the top of the town to see the view and experience the Castle. In fact several villages around us are classed amongst the most beautiful villages in France, such as Belves ;Monpazier ;Limeuil or even Cadouin which boast an Abby listed as a UNESCO heritage site.
Gites, sunbathing, swimming, relaxing... I'm bored now where can I go what's here to see?
You could quite easily spend the holiday sampling the local cuisine following the duck and the wine route or the colourful markets. There is plenty to choose from but if you are like us, having itchy feet on what was supposed to be a lazy holiday, then I have a great news - we are in the perfect spot to see and experience this beautiful region.
Let's see the spectacular grottoes, visit a châteaux this area is famous for having the most Chateaux's in France ,living history theme park, what about a gothic cathedral or those 17th century gardens near Limoeul.
See the Dordogne from the river while kayaking, canoeing, gorge walking or on the boat trip. What about a view from the hot air ballon or if you are not a big fun of the heights, from the horseback.
Dont forget that the Tour De France will be travelling right through our Village on the 11th of July!!
For those more active take the rucksack, pack your lunch and discover the picturesque villages on foot or on the bike. Climb the rocks or take part in high ropes course at the stunning Chateau du Val with a zip wire over the lake.
And in the evening if you still have some energy left you must go dancing at the local music festival in the village down the road.
