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'.

The accommodation itself is beautiful; classic in style, clean, comfortable beds and we had everything provided that we could possibly need. Although the weather was cold (we visited in January!) the gite was nice and cozy with a log fire and the owners even put electric blankets in the beds which was a thoughtful touch. The grounds are gorgeous and the family is lovely :) Thanks Karen, Rich, Arabella and Julia for a fantastic time!

As a group of ten we could ate outdoors nearly every night in the summer house - we drank wine while the kids battled it out for table tennis champ. Plenty of loungers and a lovely warm pool during the day meant that we didn't venture out much. We did go on a couple of walks across the fields and through the forest and in to the village close by for bread and a coffee every morning. The town of St Foy is lovely and the huge market on Saturday morning was great fun. Kids and adults like had a great time, adults especially enjoying long lie ins as a result of the shutters! Lovely.

The house is a good size with plenty of charm Instilling in oneself a good sense of calm Two kitchens are handy, one up and one down The veranda with games room the jewel in its crown Each night we sat out to chat and play games The pizza ovens great but ours went up in flames Heed our advice and don't use too much wood 'Cos when there's no burnt bits the Pizza tastes good! La Taverne is close by, the service is great No complaints here for the food that we ate. The kayaks were fun but the course is a test Even Ray Mears would've struggled at best Overall everyone had a great stay The greatest of times in every way So thank you to Roland, and Janie and Sue Hopefully one day we'll rebook with you.
