Our lovely gite is situated in a quiet hamlet called Les Castilloux, close to the river L'isle and the Guyenne Paper Mill. We finished refurbishing it at the end of June 2016. Once the bakery for the paper mill, it still houses the bread oven (circa 1850). We are off-road, secluded and surrounded by farm and woodlands, just five minutes from the much loved lake and beach at Nantheuil where you can swim and eat. 10 minutes Thiviers, 25 minutes Brantome, Jumilhac, 30 minutes Perigueux.

Why Paul Hutson chose Nanthiat
This is the old bakery for the paper mill. We have retained the old features but completely modernised it in terms of insulation, electrics, water etc. It is surrounded by countryside and wildlife. An excellent place to relax and use as a base to tour the area, chateaux, villages and of course our lake beach at Nantheuil.
What makes this Cottage unique
The old bread oven and peaceful surroundings.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
A beautifully done renovation in lovely quiet surroundings.
The house is lovely and clean. Paul and his wife were so friendly. A quiet peaceful area but not far from Brantôme where the kids and ourselves too enjoyed the kayaking. We would highly recommend this beautiful holiday home.
Great secluded location, nicely finished accomodation and very friendly owners. Would highly recommend!
Nice comfortable house
Compact house with all the facilities you need to enjoy a quiet holiday in lovely France. Close to the beach at Nantheuil and to the city of Périgueux. Recommended!
When we booked this house, we expected to get calm and comfort - when we left, we were much more than satisfied.
The interior of the house corresponds to what you see in the photographs: good taste, well kept, and lots of space. This is true for the outside areas as well. VERY quiet.
We were there in scorching heat, 35° each day, but nights were still cool enough to sleep well. Friendly and helpful owners/neighbors, nice cats who come to visit from time to time.
Theviers is a good logistical base (supermarkets, pharmacies, etc.). Nice villages in the surrounding countryside. Good for outside activities, I guess - but not at 35° ... Even in high season, the area is not that crowded.
Highly recommended for a relaxing vacation!
Une parenthèse verte
La maison est dans la campagne, calme et joliment décorée. Elle offre tout le confort nécessaire et une organisation très agréable des pièces pour une famille avec 4 enfants ou pour deux familles. La chambre "cabine" ne peut que ravir les enfants (les miennes âgées de 18 et 21 ans ont retrouvé leur âme d'enfant).
La région est très riche et permet de nombreuses découvertes. Le lac, tout proche, permet d'agréables baignades.
Ne pas hésiter, les propriétaires sont par ailleurs discrets et accueillants.
De la qualité
Séjour très agréable.
Des gens très gentils.
