The pretty and architecturally typical house, five mins drive from Plazac village, has been recently renovated with modern hot water, heating and double glazing. It is set among beautiful fields and woodland, with a single neighbouring house not too close by, whose large friendly Alsatian dog came to say hello a couple of times. There are sheep close by and a donkey.
The kitchen is very well-equipped with excellent oven, micro, gas hobs and decent fridge for feeding great French cuisine to groups.
The house is set in the heart of the Perigord Noir, which is a stunning landscape with pre-historically inhabited cliffs eroded by the Visere river and full of archaeological interest as well as stunning crystal caves.
We stayed in "clematis" with our labrador Honey for 3 weeks in September and I did not want to return home! The gites are just outside the small village of Auriac which is beautiful, and only 5 mins drive from Montignac which has a big supermarket and lots of lovely restaurants and shops. The gites and their surroundings are beautiful, with lovely little walks and a fabulous pool which you can sit and relax at. Our gite was perfect, it has a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need, a lovely shower room, 2 big bedrooms and a huge sitting/dining room. Outside you have a really sunny patio to enjoy. There are so many beautiful places to visit within a 30-40 min drive. I'll highly recommend Sarlat which has a fab market on saturday and Terrason which is a lovely town on the river Vezere. There are beautiful chateaus and gardens to visit and bring a picnic and dogs are welcome everywhere. We had a truly wonderful holiday at Chantegrel and our hosts Neal and Rachel could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The peace and quiet were something special and you can completely escape from reality, this beautiful place is a truly a little piece of heaven.
