Welcome to this lovely, relaxed Gite in its very special setting. Here you have commanding views down over the sweeping vineyards below, and across the Aquitaine plain towards St Emilion.
Awaken to the sun and idle up the lane to the village deli for bread (4 mins). Enjoy your croissant by the pool and plan lunch at the charming bistro in the village square.
Tonight there is a local rose for aperitif on the lower terrace and then a barbecue on the lawn as everyone relaxes into the holiday . . . . and then becomes breathless as the incredible sunset reveals from the special vantage point.
Forget your watch, and let the chime of the Abbey set the pace.
And beyond today? Wonderful walks, cycling (4 bikes are yours to use) and exploration from this comfortable base. The Dordogne river is just 5km away and the area is rich in wine chateau (endless tastings!), idyllic villages, historic towns and many local activities (eg caves, canoeing, ballooning, golf).
The "Anciennes Ecole" is packed with traditional French character, yet has new and modern amenities (eg 2 ensuites added new in 2016, refurbished bedrooms, TV, DVD, WiFi etc). It's also very private, being gated and with a walled courtyard. A huge and rambling garden stretches off down the hillside.
