The barn has been restored to a high standard and is ideally located for families who love the French lifestyle. Beautifully equipped and in a beautiful French village. The pool was just right for young children and very safe.
We loved it!
This is a great place to base yourself for visiting sites like Rocamadour and Gouffre de Padirac. We also spent a day canoeing on the Dordogne (there are plenty of companies that offer this, we went with Safaraid). It was a lovely way to spend the day. There are also countless medieval villages to explore.
The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The gite itself is a medieval building with big rooms and high ceilings in the grounds of Chateau de Castelnau with stunning uninterrupted views over the valley below. It was very well equipped, we needed for nothing.
There’s no WiFi (but there is 4G coverage) and the gite itself doesn’t have a dedicated parking space but there are several spaces about 2min walk away and you can drive up to the gite to load and unload.
We ate one night at Le Ramparts restaurant (also in castle grounds). The food was pleasant and reasonably priced, but you need to book in advance if there’s an event at the castle (and there seem to be plenty of opera festivals in the summer). Bernard, the owner, can also offer many other excellent restaurant recommendations.
We absolutely loved our week here and will never forget it.
