We had a fantastic family holiday at these beautiful houses,6 adults and 4 children. Louise showed us everything we needed and helped with directions to the shops for the morning bread and croissants! It is in quite a rural position which was great for peace and quiet, apart from us noisy rabble! The houses had everything we needed, all the equipment was there and the bbq was amazing. 15 mins to the nearest big supermarket, 5 mins to a little bakery and 10 mins to Montignac, which is a beautiful town. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Dordogne and if we cone back to this region would definitely book again.
We stayed in Lavande, a lovely gite for 4. The beds were comfortable, the cottage was spacious and had everything you need. The garden is lovely with plenty of seating and a good sized BBQ was provided. The owners are friendly and sorted out a small problem with the shower very quickly. The pool is a nice size and kept very clean.
We loved Montignac - only a 10 minute walk to bakeries, ice cream, shops, lots of restaurants, a market twice a week (Wednesday - lots of stalls everywhere, Saturday - small amount of food produce stalls). There was also a Monday evening market with people selling various food which you could eat at trestle tables. We kayaked from Montignac and it was quiet and lovely. The area is nice with plenty of chateau/castles/towns/caves to visit.
The gites are next to Lascaux 4, which, despite being very popular and busy did not impact on our stay at all (i.e. no problems with traffic or noise).
It's possible to do some off road walking in the area, although a lot of walks do include some road walking,
