French country gite with pool, within walking distance of pretty village

Lovely and quiet.....

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, very pretty scenery all the way around the gite. The gite itself was very private and quiet with plenty of outside seating areas to relax and enjoy the views. Inside was very clean and comfortable, and the building itself very quaint with lovely old fashioned beams and eye catching details.

We found the gite was the perfect getaway from everything for us.

Had plenty of pans etc if you wanted to cook, a good range of crockery, cutlery, cups, and drinking glasses.

The bed was fantastically comfortable, and even in the heatwave of up to 39 degree days we had in the second week, the bedroom remained nice and cool. Great bathroom with huge shower, plenty of hot water at all times.

Pool, was a nice size and great for cooling off in especially when the temperatures soared.

About 3 k from the pretty little village of Tocane St Apre.

We had some really lovely day trips out, went to various markets and pottered about in the beautiful countryside.

Shopping for food etc was easy as there is a big intermarche just out of Tocane and a market on Mondays.

It was made very easy to pick day trips out with lots of information left at the gite. We had access to the internet as well so all in all it was perfect for us.

Karen was very helpful all the way along through our booking, and arrival. She gave us all the information we needed so it was a very easy and stress free experience.

We really enjoyed our stay of just over 2 weeks and would love to come to stay again!

Amazing quiet location and stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxed stay at this beautiful cottage. Set in the middle of lovely countryside, we had a very chilled week away. Karen provided everything we needed and was a superb host - leaving us wine and bread to welcome us at the cottage. The pool was lovely and the evenings watching the sun set were so good. We also travelled with a 5 month old and everything was great for the little one - including Karen providing us with blankets and a chair for him. Would go back in a heartbeat. A great place to unwind.

Perfect retreat for peace and tranquillity.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful gite. It is set in the most tranquil spot surrounded by rolling fields and woodland, ideal for a peaceful get away with great views. The pool is fantastic and gets the sunshine all day and into the evening's.

The gite is well equipped and has such a comfy bed.You are close enough to the village, that is well served with a butcher, baker, supermarket, bar, restaurants etc. It is also ideally located to explore the whole of the Perigord region.

Can't wait to go back.

Paradise in Tocane.

Our stay was lovely and more than we had hoped for. We would certainly

recommend this property to friends or relatives. We only left the property to go shopping in the village!

Secluded & tranquil

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a great holiday. We loved the location overlooking fields of sunflowers and 5 minutes drive or 15 minutes cycle ride to the village with its weekly market and boulangerie etc. We spent most days cycling down peaceful country lanes and roads to villages and towns where we'd have lunch, and then on arriving back at the house, diving into the pool and later, dinner on the terrace under the stars. This really is a complete 'get away from everything' location. Internet excepted though, we valued the wifi to help map out cycle routes and read up on the various interesting places we visited. The bathroom has a great shower, the kitchen - living area is small but well equipped and compact and cosy. The bed is big and comfortable. The property was clean and well-kept, and the owner and local manager could not have been more helpful. We definitely would recommend the house.

The gite is in beautiful rural surroundings.Why not walk into the village for the local Monday morning market. Pick up a 'pain tocannais' at one of the local bakeries. Enjoy a delicious meal at Bistro 'Rouge' or the other two bar restaurants we have in the village serving a tasty selection from the 'menu du jour' Then take a stroll along the river to walk off your lunch. Fancy a canoe trip, you can do that here. Perhaps a visit to the 'Tocane Costume Museum' in the village before collecting some full bodied wine from the village 'Cave' for your evening meal back at Boulangerie de Providence.

Oh and not forgetting the supermarket, butchers, hairdressers, bric a brac antique shop, doctors, chemist, police station and the vet, in case you need something for your furry friend - it's all here for you at Tocane Saint Apre.

If you fancy a trip off in the car, Perigueux, capital of the Dordogne is approx 20km, with it's Roman remains and beautiful Cathedral or Brantome 'Venice of the Perigord' is a must!
