Recent Reviews

The property is beautifully situated at the edge of the village of Martel.

4 of 5
The gite has everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. A car is a necessity as there is no transit in the village, and you will want to tour the nearby villages of Carennac and Rocamadour. Madame Diane is a gracious host.

Very nice place, very good location

5 of 5
Karen and Peter were very helpful with all aspects of our stay in Vitrac. There were 6 of us, 3 couples, and we found Les Chenes delightful, well appointed, and the grounds beautiful. The pool had just been closed when we arrived in early October, so we cannot comment on that. The location is perfect for canoeing the Dordogne, exploring Sarlat, all the caves, Domme, La Roque Gageac, Beynac, and many other locations. The website was very helpful for planning beforehand, and narrowing sites to visit in our time frame. Karen's suggestions for restaurants were spot on. Only slight negative-- a local farmer was burning what we think was crop waste a couple nights, making some nasty smoke on the calm nights, but the smoke did not enter the house. I assume this is seasonal to October.
