We stayed end of September beginning October and had a mix of summer and autumn weather. The setting of the house, next to the church and chateau, with its large garden and heated swimming pool is outstanding. The bedrooms are large and airy. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. With a dog we had walks around the village and woods, (details available from the Mayor's office). There are lovely walks along the Dordogne from the beach/picnic areas at St Julien de Lampon which has a good selection of local shops - bakers, mini market and newsagent, chemist and cafe. There is also a bakers, mini market and restaurant in Payrac, with larger supermarkets in Souillac and Sarlat. Bread was available 2 kms away at the restaurant Les Sept Sources by the lake at Lamothe Fenelon. The nearest restaurant we would thoroughly recommend is Le Roi Carotte at St Julien de Lampon. We would also recommend MCVets, if needed, at Sarlat. Philippe, the owner, is very easy to deal with and keeps in touch to ensure that all goes well. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked to return next year.
Georgina's helpful advice and kindness added to our holiday experience. Free entertainment provided by the kittens as well. The wifi is somewhat temperamental but forced us to keep off technology - a good thing! The gite has everything we needed for our stay. Extra bonus having washing machine due to our 3 week stay. Gourdon was a great base for checking out the Lot and Dordogne. We will.miss our morning visits to La Fabrique for coffee. Many thanks again Georgina!
