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'.

Simply great!

5 of 5
I certainly recommend this as an ideal place to get away and relax! The few days we stayed there were revitalizing. Surrounded by nature, swimming in the morning, a glass of wine at sunset while reading a book, quietness... nice! The place is well cared and fulfilled our expectations and matched the online description. Helder and Patricia were very kind and solicitous and communication couldn't have been better. The city of Bergerac is close by and a nice destination for a romantic or simply a relaxing walk in such an old and rustical example of the Dordogne region.

Just right for two

What a great find. Perfectly situated to enjoy the many lovely spots in the Dordogne and relaxing after returning from a day out.A very comfortable gite with everything you could want to have an enjoyable stay. Pascale and Dominique are great hosts, very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend the gite for a great stay.
