Gîte / Cottage

Gîte du Chateau de Mayac

Peace, space and privacy are offered in this well-restored former barn that is part of the 15th century Château de Mayac estate.

In earlier times this was an important area with vineyards and tobacco growing. The large tobacco dryer and a converted dovecote from that time are visible reminders near your holiday home.

The atmosphere around the house is calm and it is a wonderful place for children.
They can romp around in the garden and the large swimming pool of 14 by 5 meters is located a few tens of meters away from the house and is child-safe.
This swimming pool is shared with the tenants of a second gîte on this estate.
ATTENTION : The swimming pool is only available in July and August !

The house has a cozy living room with a fireplace, a well-equipped kitchen, nice large bedrooms, three bathrooms and a spacious terrace.

From the house you can walk to the river, it is centrally located with regard to all kinds of activities, shops and sights.

In the immediate vicinity are many well-marked hiking trails and you can also discover nature in the underlying forest with the avenue with ancient plane trees along the river Isle.

Restaurants can be found 2 km from the house, shops with groceries are within 2 km. The house is located on the border of the Périgord Vert and the Périgord Blanc in the southern French Dordogne.

For a day out, you can visit the surrounding towns of Excideuil (10 km), Tourtoirac (18 km) or Perigueux (23 km).

The Dutch manager has lived at a distance of 1200 meters for over 20 years and is happy to assist you.

For family holidays, a second residence for 6 persons (2 bedrooms) is available on the same domain. (subject to availability)
