You are a guest in a simple but cozy and practical house.
The house has central heating and a wood stove.
Downstairs are the living room and the kitchen. In the living room there are two easy armchairs and a round dining table with chairs. The kitchen includes a fridge, hob, microwave and oven; a washing machine in the utility room.
On the floor is an open sleeping area with a double bed and a single bed. Adjacent to the sleeping area is a bathroom with bath-shower, sink and toilet.
There is wifi available.
In front of the house is a terrace with seating for outdoor dining, and there are plenty of lazy chairs in the garden. You have a view of the valley that is bordered by forest.
You can use the swimming pool of 9.00 x 4.70 and also the sun terrace by the pool.
Our house is on the same site, but between our house and the gîte is a large house, which is used as a recreation room, including a table tennis table. Our total area is 8 hectares.
The holiday home is located between the two great rivers Dordogne and Lot. Oak forest is interspersed with farmyards and small fields, walnut orchards and vineyards.
The location is very favorable for numerous excursions to sights in the area, such as prehistoric and other caves, medieval castles and towns, a pottery village, workshops of "artisans", the Zadkin Museum, interesting gardens and markets.
The beautiful surroundings invite to activities such as hiking, cycling, swimming and canoeing. See below for more information about the area. But you can also stay close to home and enjoy the peace in the garden or swim and sunbathe on the sun terrace.
In the village is the "chai" (wine making and storage) of the Vin de Domme, the wine of this region, where you can taste wine without any obligation. At the chai there is a lookout tower, from which you can see Auvergne in clear weather. Opposite is a brasserie with terraces and views over the vineyards.
But there are of course also the wine castles a bit to the south along the Lot: the Vin de Cahors.
Those who enjoy good food can indulge themselves (and loosen the belly belt) in one of the many restaurants with regional dishes or with more refined French cuisine.
Regional products are the duck pâté and the foie gras, saffron and walnuts (walnut tart!), Truffles, cèpes (boletus bread) and strawberries, and fresh goat cheese. Here you will find real peace and quiet and you can enjoy beautiful starry skies.
At about 4 km distance there are two villages with pharmacy, post office, bakers, butcher and small supermarket and at 14 km is a provincial town (Gourdon) with many shops and large supermarkets.
The Saturday market of Sarlat is a concept for many tourists, as is the Sunday market in St. Cyprien. But for the enthusiast there are even more markets and even closer to home, where you can find "products from the farm", both during the week and on Sunday.
