The
Experience

Such a pretty spot: a tiny hamlet of mellow stone buildings on a road to nowhere in the rolling, tree-covered Dordogne hills. UK-based Karin and Mike’s second home and gîte, once part of a bigger farmstead, sits now in five wildlife-friendly hectares. There’s an inviting swimming pool with shade to retreat to for meals or a snooze; beyond a mown area the meadow’s given over to wild flowers; beyond that you can follow deer trails through the woods. Indoors the house is light, airy, easy-going. The kitchen’s big, well-equipped, with loads of cupboards. The sitting room: stone walls, pale floors, wood-burning stove, English sofas, French chairs, is comfortable, not over-dressed. Rooms on the two upper floors are pale and interesting too with painted beams, Laura Ashley beds and mattresses. In similar modern/rustic style, the smaller gîte also has a double and twin room above an open plan dining/living/simple kitchen area. Great for friends with older children to share (tricky terrain for toddlers). Fabulous Castelnaud Castle is ten minutes’ drive; all the foodie and watery delights of the Dordogne are nearby.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Karin Lorenz

  • Early morning be sure to look out the windows to watch the deer in the meadows and at nightfall enjoy the sounds of the hooting owls.
  • Spend your days exploring this most beautiful part of France. There is truly something for everyone. Take a lazy canoe down the Dordogne River and pass by stunning French villages, take a hot air balloon and drift over chateaux or visit prehistoric caves.
  • Food lovers will be in heaven. There are a number of excellent and personally recommended restaurants within a 10 min - 1 hour drive. Enjoy French local food at its best. Fancy something sweet? Be sure to visit the excellent boulangerie in Castelnaud.
  • A visit to the medieval town of Sarlat (20 min drive) is a must. Both beautiful and lively it offers everything. La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Domme, a famous Bastide Town, which was once the base for the Knights Templar, are all worthy of a visit.
  • Live like a local and visit the amazing weekly food markets in a variety of villages. Stock up on fresh from the earth produce and tasty delicacies.
  • Finally if all you wish to do is relax, you will find the house a tranquil oasis where you can sit quietly and read a book or laze in the sunshine at the very private swimming pool.
