Gite was a good size with everything you needed, the hosts were also excellent making you feel at home. The pool, Zip-wire for our son was an added bonus great time had by all. The weather wasn’t great but didn’t spoil our week.
The spot on the rocks where this gite nestles makes links with the origins of time, and from the otside as I parked my car on coming "home" every day I saw a welcoming hobbit style home. Once inside I could carry out my tasks with ease as the house is all on one level, so half an hour a day and all the cleaning etc was over with.
The enclosed garden was a delight, and I sat out in March when the rain stopped and watched the changing face of nature, the blossom, birds and leaves unfurling.
From this hilltop posiiton I could walk in all directions and revel in the marvels of our world and my dogs could jump, swim and play freely as there were few cars and a stream with a french washing post at the bottom of the hill. Me too, I got to swim in early May as the pool had been warmed by the solar panels.
I enjoyed shopping in Lisle and Verteillac and bought an unusual butter dish (involving upside down butter in water) at the monthly brocante in La Tour Blanche.
My hosts were invisible unless gardening but were on hand when I struggled with a sickness bug to bring me the right cure, they were a pleasure to know.
This was an area of the Dordogne I had not visited before and I will certainly return and perhaps buy my own piece of peace.
