La Croix is set on the edge of the village of St. Germain de Belves 700 feet above the sunflower and maize fields. The house is of stone and consist of two old barns that have been restored using the original materials. It has breathtaking views across the valley to the bastide town of Belves and the surrounding hillsides. The bedrooms are on the ground floor with open plan accommodation on the first floor. There is a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, gas cooker etc.
We had a fantastic time at "La Croix", a beautiful house in a lovely setting.
It is with reluctance that I return the keys to "La Croix"

The Dordogne region is divided into four sections. The Perigord Noir, Perigord Vert. Perigord Blanche and Perigord Poupre. The climate is generally 10F warmer than Britain. Each section has its own character the Perigord Noir being heavenly wooded, Perigord Vert contains most fruit trees and Perigord Poupre is mostly the wine area.
Our house is in the Perigord Noir, a delightful area through which the river Dordogne runs making it ideal for canoeing trips and flat bottomed pleasure boat trips. There are several golf courses within easy reach, all pay and play. Hot air balloon trips are available.
Horse riding. Walking. Cycling. There are lots of activities in the area as well as many chateaux and ancient market towns to visit. Each town or village has its own special restaurant.
