A Dordogne Dream - A Gite' along the banks

  • 5 of 5

If you dislike superlatives, you should probably not read this review. This property exceeded our expectations exponentially. The photographs of the property - beautiful as they are - do not actually do the property justice. The gite is of old (1700s?) style construction with thick (3-4 feet) stone walls. Yet, the interior has been fastidiously refurbished to meet 21st century norms. The thick stone walls keep in the coolness so that the gite is confortably cool even in warm temperatures. The bed is a platform bed that we found to be decidedly comfortable and was enhanced by a bolster containing lavender. The entire interior is eclectic in typical French farmhouse style. The bath had a wonderful shower and also a full length tub. The toilet chamber was separate to allow greatly flexibility of use. The kitchen was well supplied and functional and we used it every night as we dined al fresco each night on the deck off of the bedroom. The grounds are enchanting with fruit trees, flowering plants and vegetables abundantly surrounding the gite. While we didn't indulge in the pond for swimming (this is definitely allowed), it was a beautiful backdrop for our dinners and afternoons and evenings drinking wine and beer outdoors. The Dordogne river is the back yard. A mere 20 to 30 meters from the gite, you can make you way to the banks of the peacefully flowing river and take in wonderful sunsets over the nearby bridge. (A word about the bridge - we arrived late at night - almost midnight. When we crossed the Dordogne canal and came upon the entrance to the bridge across the river, we thought for sure that the structure was pedestrian only. These were American sensibilities - the bridge accommodates one way traffic for vehicles not wider than 2 meters. Be forewarned!) The owners were very delightful and accommodating. Although they and their family live on the property, we never lost our sense of privacy. The Dordogne region - in general - was stunningly beautiful, although the roads lack any American sense of order or width. Enjoy the Chateaus and castles and town markets. We strongly suggest a visit to Grotto de Font de Gaume for the pre-historic cave drawings - definitely an awe inspiring life moment.

This is a little piece of heaven in France. Beautiful gardens and a charming well equipped gite.

We strongly recommend coming to see for yourself.

charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described. The garden surrounding the house is amazing. Our host was very accomodating and delivered fresh croissants and bread daily during our 11 days stay. The refrigerator was well stocked with jams, milk and coffee. We can only recommend this haven in a great location.

Charming and Rustic getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place in a fabulous location on the banks of the Dordogne, River.

Watching the lizards running around the patio better entertainment than the TV.

The owners are a really nice couple too, very helpful.

Perfekter Ort zum Ausspannen

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt direkt an der Dordogne in einem wunderbaren Garten. Es ist geräumigund es gibt zwei Sitzplätze. einer hinter dem Haus und einer am Teich. In dem könnte man auch baden. Aber als wir dort waren, war es noch zu kalt. Wunderbar ist auch die Umgebung. Ein Bäcker gibt es etwa 300 m. entfernt über die Brücke und in Lalinde gibt es einen schönen Markt und einen Intermarché. Wir hatten Fahrräder dabe und man kann gut nach Lalinde mit dem Rad fahren am Kanal entlang. Ansonsten ist der Markt in Issigeac wirklich zu empfehlen (Sonntags). Ein guter Ort zum Ausspannen.
