                                                                                                      This gite is very characterful and charming, situated in an unspoilt ancient red sandstone village, with some properties now being converted and others waiting for brave imaginative and creative people to sensitively restore past splendour. The gite is nestled below the impressive chateau of Castelnau and we thoroughly enjoyed the peace in the evenings, sipping wine in the courtyard, listening to the jackdaws and wheeling screaming swifts, and watching the evening sunlight dancing on the glowing chapel stonework. The kitchen is very well equipped, and there is plenty of glassware crockery and cutlery for five. Plus a dishwasher. The dining room and sitting room are spacious and comfortable but we chose to eat out of doors. As there were only two us the umbrella was adequate to provide shade but not for five people if the gite were fully occupied. Similarly there are only two sun beds, and a small table around which five people would have difficulty eating outside. There was a lovely vine shaded area and we suggested that the delightful proprietor should put an additional table and chairs there, and reduce the hedge a little to give a fantastic view of the valley below. The bedrooms are downstairs; the one with three beds is very spacious, with a little sitting area in addition, and the double bedroom is. also a good size. The huge bonus about the downstairs bedrooms is that regardless of heat outside (35 degrees when we were there) we slept well as the rooms were really cool. The bathroom is downstairs with a bath, and the shower head is excellent. Some people might not like the fact that the loo is upstairs, and does not have a hand basin. There is a small flight of stairs up into the courtyard so avoid heavy suitcases... There is a very conveniently located restaurant with friendly charming staff a five minute stroll from the gite which was perfect for our first evening. The nearest bakery and food shopping is in Bretenoux, which is a 10 minute drive away, We really loved our home from home, perfectly located for visiting Gouffre de Padirac, Lascaux (a must), Rocamadour , Turenne chateau and many more local picturesque villages in the area. Highly recommended!

There is a splendid view over open fields, woods and hills - just right for evening meals on the patio with the sun going down over the hills. Just the sound of the birds - no cars or road noise. All that you need can be found in Labastide Murat about 10 minutes away. Ria was very welcoming, helpful and discrete.
