Perfect peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

The gite is fantastic which we already knew as it was our second visit. It is so peaceful but within 30 minutes of most of the main attractions in the Dordogne. The pool was a welcome retreat as most days it reached 35 deg, the gite has everything required along with perfect hosts Tom and Karen. A must whilst you are in the area is the Nocturne Marche, an evening market that serves fantastic food but at reasonable prices along with a fantastic atmosphere

Peaceful Gite in the Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

Fontaine du Roy is in a peaceful, idyllic location surrounded by countryside. The gite was clean & well equipped & benefits from its own pool & sun terrace. We were welcomed by the lovely owners Karen & Tom who holiday in their attached gite & the property is maintained & cleaned by a friendly English speaking local couple who live nearby.

A car is essential, there are no villages within walking distance, but the gite is well located for exploring the Dordogne region.

Gite with family appeal

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect base for a much needed family break. The gite was well equipped but our lives centred around the welcome coolness of the pool. Days started with a 3 mile cycle ride to the boulangerie for fresh bread and croissants (up hill return, but very achievable as a family) before trips to visit the delights of the Dordogne with caves, canoes and cafes in the most stunning historic towns. TV available (tell the kids it's only in French if you want to avoid TV for the break!) but not needed and when faced with the option of booking a restaurant for our last night they all wanted to stay home and BBQ! The owners were next door when needed, but you wouldn't know they were there. Would certainly recommend.
