It is quiet (silent in fact), private and so wonderfully French. The size of the place was not a problem at all, in fact it is bigger inside than it looks from outside!. Upstairs the bedroom was generous and the bathroom enormous and both had lovely old-fashioned touches. Plenty of room downstairs to cook and relax too, with the owner leaving lots of information about places to visit etc. We loved Gourdon and it proved to be a good centre for visits around the Dordogne. We enjoyed the town's restaurants and bars too, as well as the historical buildings and lovely narrow streets. Parking for the Gite looked like it might be an issue as there was a small public car park, but not once did we fail to get a space whatever time we returned from a day out. Would recommend the Gite; comfortable, very well equipped, thoughtful touches (not least the generous Welcome Pack) and a very friendly owner and family. We would love to go back and hope we will at some point.

The gite is beautifully restored, very comfortable and well equipped. We loved sitting in the little garden reading our books and enjoying a glass of local wine. The gite has a very comfortable bed and super shower. It's location is fabulous with wonderful views from the kitchen and bathroom. We loved it!
