The Gîtes

The Gîtes

During these strange times we have decided for your and our own safety to only rent one Gite each week. This will ensure you have exclusive use of the gite gardens and the pool area. It will also give us more than enough time to ensure we can fully clean and sanitaise the gite between each booking.

We have a separate entrance and fenced garden on the property, therefore social distancing can easily be maintained whilst you’re staying with us. 

We’ll show both gites being available until one is booked, then mark them both as unavailable.

Very comfortable, well equipped self-catering accommodation, offering two gîtes with en-suite facilities and luxury heated & covered pool situated to the north of Perigord Noir, the heart of the Dordogne.

Two gîtes sleeping 4 and 6 people. For a larger family group, both gites may be rented together. (Max 8 people).

Open plan living space with well equipped kitchen area. Beautiful pool area with 11 x 5 metre covered (retractable cover) and heated pool and hot tub / jacuzzi set in established garden with many mature trees offering plenty of dappled shade. Stunning views from pool and terrace across rolling countryside.

As people who enjoy good food and cooking, we have provided everything we hope you would expect to find in a fully equipped fitted kitchen - full size cooker, microwave, large fridge + freezer, dishwasher, cook's knives, serving dishes, kettle, teapot, coffee maker & cafetiere and all cooking utensils. There is also a washing machine, iron & ironing board.

Electric cool box (27litres) - mains or car

Modern flat screen HD ready TVs, Satellite TV (with all English free to air channels), and DVD.

French TV available on request.

We now have WiFi everywhere and I mean the Gites, by the pool and all over the garden! You can surf the net in the sun or the shade, indoors or outside, drink in hand or with your feet in the pool. We also have a 4G mobile signal.

Large selection of books & games.

To minimise the amount of luggage you need to bring (especially for those flying)

All bed linen and towels are provided and included in the price, including pool towels. For 2 week bookings, a fresh set of linen and towels will be provided for the 2nd week. Please note, we do not provide bed linen for the cot.

There are two mobile air conditioning units in each gite. Fans provided in each bedroom. Hairdryers in each room.

Smoking - In the interest of safety and the comfort of fellow / subsequent guests, we kindly request that you refrain from smoking inside the gite.

Fire extinguisher & fire blanket provided in the kitchen. Smoke alarms fitted


Heated pool - the pool is open from the beginning of our season and heated from the beginning of May. 11 x 5m. Large Roman steps provide easy access to the pool.

High quality retractable pool cover - swim indoors / outdoors.

4/5 seater hot tub / jacuzzi.

The pool cover conforms to all French pool security regulations, it is the guests responsibility to ensure the cover is closed when not in use. 

Your safety remains your own responsibility and children must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Our pool is a traditional chlorinated pool, checked & maintained daily, to ensure bather comfort.

Please be aware that salt water swimming pools also contain chlorine, some people claim, that their salt systems are chlorine free, this is untrue. A well managed traditional chlorinated pool is no more or less "harsh" than a salt system swimming pool. 

All pool maintenance is undertaken by Alex and Alison. You're on holiday - there's nothing for you to do unless you really want to.

Shaded parking.

Stunning views over rolling countryside from the gîte terrace and pool. Over 1/2 acre of established gardens for sole use by gîte guests, with many mature trees offering plenty of dappled shade.

Wide variety of fruit trees including cherry, plum, grape, apple, peach, fig and walnut. Guests are welcome to pick the fruit in season.
Some garden maintenance (yes grass cutting and watering) will be necessary during your stay - but we'll endeavour to do this whilst you are out and about.

We are surrounded by open fields and woods - excellent for an evening stroll or cycle. 

We have a selection of adult bikes - they are suitable for popping to the village to collect bread, but are not suitable for doing a stage of the "Tour de France". If you're a serious cyclist, we'd suggest you bring your own. We’re happy to provide storage in our garage.

We have badminton, boules, golf clubs, fishing gear. All free for you to use.

Sun loungers, table & chairs available by the pool, benches in the shade. Each gite has a terrace with BBQ (Charcoal), wooden table and chairs.
