We have stayed in this gite more than once over the years. Set in the middle of The Dordogne it has peace and quiet in abundance. Not that its off the beaten track; far from it in fact. At least 2 supermarkets and 1 hypermarket are 20 mins away. The world famous prehistoric sites and town of Les Eyzies-le-Tayac-Sireuil is approx 40 mins away and there's plenty of canoeing and water based activities on the Dordogne river and chateaus in abundance.
The gite was well equipped and very clean on arrival. Thanks Sam for the loan of the small frying pan; Sam is very helpful. The gite is spacious and the grounds including the swimming pool is equally spacious, there's even a small wood to walk in. We had great fun feeding our stale bread to the fish in the large pond. Have I mentioned the resident kingfisher? Joy.
Sometimes we just sat and listened to the quiet, sometimes we explored the many sites; Chateau Commarque is a must, sometimes we just swam and read. For us as a nature lovers there was plenty to catch our attention in the leat.
After such exhausting days we opened the French wine ate some delicious cheese, then watched the sun go down waiting for the owls to hoot; bliss.
We booked this gite as a last minute getaway. Perfect for two people, exceptionally clean and well equipped. Pool was great with plenty of sun loungers and beautiful views. About 20 minutes drive to Cahors which is well worth a visit. Plenty of excellent restaurants serving good lunches at reasonable prices. The Lot Valley is one of the prettiest places we have visited in France and would certainly return here. Martine and Emile live next door and were on hand to answer any questions but were not at all intrusive. The perfect hosts for a perfect holiday.
