Canoeing trips along the river also provide some of the best, and least seen, views of the Duras chateaux, caves and castles too.

Close enough to the towns for provisions but then we could get away and just chill. Pool was great, although being in the short side I struggled to get out of it elegantly, to the amusement of the rest of our group.

Louise and Gary are lovely hosts and helped us out with lots of local information. The gite is in a great location, offering peace and quiet and beautiful gardens. The accommodation is perfect. Home from home with great outdoor facilities. There is so much to do in the surrounding areas. We had a great time visiting local markets and soirees and even kayaking on the Dordogne. We cannot wait to return.
