Douzillac - Be bat and mouse friendly!

We're pretty rural here. Our hamlet is in the commune of Douzillac - a pretty hill village overlooking the River Lisle. It is a lively commune with lots going on in summer including cycle races, car boot sales, village meals and firework displays at the end of August.

An excellent network of foot and bridle paths is all around us - suitable for mountain bikers and enthusiastic walkers. There are fields of sunflowers in July, wild orchids in the spring and blackberries to be gathered in early September.

The river has excellent fishing in season and is also a fine place for canoeing and kayaking with charming river banks drifting past, overhung by trees. You might even see a kingfisher.

Le Treuil is one of the many hamlets that are part of the commune and includes two farms producing veal sous de la mere (calves reared under their mothers) foie gras and strawberries in season. You don't have to mind farm machinery passing by in harvest.

There is plenty of wildlife too - this year we had to put up bigger brollies to shield swimmers from enthusiastic swallows, les hirondelles, swooping low over the pool. At dusk a lady with us in July was thrilled to watch an owl swoop low under the tree where she was watching the sunset. It came every evening at about 10.30. And, don't tell the squeamish, we have families of mice in our compost bin. Well, we have to try to be 'green'.

Beautiful with stunning views

5 of 5
It was exceptionally hot during our stay (well over 30 degrees every day) the pool was a godsend! So lovely to cool off after a morning exploring the lovely little villages in the area. Plenty of places for great lunches and dinners around. We will definitely be back!

Delightful Rural Gite

5 of 5
The property was most attractive with very much a "french" feel, both comfortable and relaxing. We particularly enjoyed the delightful pool especially as the fortnight was very hot and sunny. It was peaceful and quiet. Jill, the owner was most accommodating in ensuring we had an excellent holiday by providing a welcome pack of food stuffs and ongoing contributions including eggs, and produce. Jill was always helpful with information when asked. The property is in a rural location and we enjoyed walks in the vicinity. We were able to explore the bastide towns (Eymet, Duras, Issigeac) , areas along the Dordogne river, and some of the wonderful chateux and wine producing properties in the area. We found some excellent restaurants and enjoyed the wonderful markets for top class fruit and foodstuffs. Bergerac itself we visited several times, enjoying exploring the old town, wine museum , river area and various cafes to stop and savour the atmosphere. All in all you could not ask for more.
