Our house has been restored with as much attention as we would our own home. We are French and want to offer you a French way of life in an authentic hamlet where a few farms are still in activity.

Our gite is located in Black Périgord,an area famous for its numerous touristic sites and one of the nicest parts of France..It's away but within easy reach(20 to 45 mn) from the busy places and famous spots such as the prehistoric caves of Lascaux, the medieval town of Sarlat, the Dordogne Valley with its many castles and picturesque villages. No need to mention our world famous cuisine and local recipes(foie gras,confit,truffles,walnuts ).
Local wines are a must,tasting Montbazillac or Bergerac is a worthwhile experience!
We enjoy a nice sunny weather most of the time,for the past years,June and September have been very warm and dry,this is actually a very good period to discover the area without the crowd!
The gite is set in a quiet hamlet ,this makes it very relaxing and authentic. Hautefort(6km) is the place for shopping,besides,you can try the nice local restaurants for a reasonable price.
This small town is famous for its huge medieval castle which dominates the area and its Medecine Museum.Nearby,a beautiful natural cave can be visited.
Nailhac ,our small village,is the walnut capital :it's surrounded by thousands of walnut trees and well-known for its walnut festival in August! Footpaths and walking trails are all over if you enjoy walking after a good swim...
Quad biking can be practised 5km away,another pleasant way to discover the area could be to try a balloon flight(they start in Hautefort )!
