Jules and Murdo Morrison. This is our holiday home and we absolutely love it here. We wish we could come more often but with work and school commitments, we are limited in time, so we thought we would like others to benefit from our beautiful house which is in such peaceful and inspiring surroundings.
"Our little family of four had a wonderful holiday in this gorgeous rural property. A real little gem tucked away in the countryside but still not too far from shops, restaurants, lakes and of course the Dordogne. Our children (ages two and four) loved the little bedroom they shared, exploring the toys and books that live there.
The pool was fabulous and the resident cows in the field below kept the children entertained!
Within the gite there is a guest book with hints and tips about the property itself and the area, which helped us to explore further.
We would definitely recommend this property and hope to be back again in the future - Family VDO."
My husband and I booked this property and took our two grandsons (aged 11 and 9 years). We all had a really lovely time. The cottage is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. Being on the edge of a village it was extremely quiet and very peaceful. Amenities are a short drive away with Gourdon about 15 minute drive where there are excellent restaurants and supermarkets for supplies. Weather was beautiful so days were spent relaxing in the garden or in the pool, which was a definite hit with the boys. There are lovely walks around the village with cycle tracks for the more energetic. Booking was made extremely easy with the owner whom I found helpful and informative. All in all, this was a wonderful cottage and we had a wonderful holiday.. Would definitely recommend it to anybody.

Special interest holidays:
Walking and cycling: there are several Grand Randonnees and cycling routes around the barn, one of which passes the front door.
Gastronomy: the area is renowned for its nuts, truffles and fois gras.
Canoeing on the Dordogne and the Vezère rivers.
Caves/cave paintings/grottes/prehistoric villages.
The area is of great historical interest - there are 1000 Chateaux in the Dordogne.
There are a few beaches in the area along the rivers and lakes.
The nearest airports are Brive-Souillac and Bergerac. However, Toulouse, Limoges and Rodez are only approx 2 hours away.
The nearest bakery is in the neighbouring village, which is a 20 minute walk. The local supermarkets are 10 - 15 minutes away by car. There is a small cafe/book shop in the village selling soft drinks and sorbets and a church.
There is plenty to do with canoes, caves and chateaus on our doorstep. There is a plethora of restaurants, cafes and banks in nearby Gourdon and Sarlat, where there are also weekly markets. And for those who need a more cosmopolitan shopping hit, Cahors, Brive and Montauban are worth a visit.
The beauty of the property is that it has a tranquil location without feeling cut off, with neighbouring houses just steps away and working farmland giving the place a friendly, authentic and laid back feel.
