A Stunning property in the peaceful French Countryside.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful few days here in what my wife and I both agreed was the nicest and best-equipped property we had stayed at in all our trips to France over the years. The facilities were excellent, and the property had been very well converted into accommodation. It is next to the owners property, but completely separate and peaceful. The views are lovely and we particularly enjoyed taking our morning coffee and evening glass of wine sitting out on the patio. Ruth and Adrian are charming hosts and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. They were always on hand if we needed them but we had complete privacy. A very nice touch was the already burning log burner when we arrived after our long drive. It was a lovely touch and added to the cosy-feel of the cottage. There are so many places to visit in the surrounding area that we would need many more life times in order to do them all! However, Adrian and Ruth had compiled a very helpful 'Top Ten' list! We had wonderful sunny weather, which always makes a difference, but we had excellent days out at 'Beynac' and the lake at Jermay. This is certainly an area we will be coming back to and unreservedly recommend Ruth and Adrian's gite as a base for your exploration of this beautiful corner of France.

very suitable for our short stay.

4 of 5
This is a quaint traditional French building adapted for the holiday trade as a giet. It is basic but very well equiped and suited our puposes down to the ground. It is suitable for the person who wants to pursue outdoor activities. The owner is a very nice person and nothing was too much trouble for him.
