Nestled in a beautiful rustic setting 2kms to the north of the picturesque Dordogne village of St Sulpice

d'Excideuil, this purpose-designed accommodation is a restful haven of tranquility and calm. The

gite offers a harmonious combination of deluxe modern fittings set in a rustic stone and oak building

- the best of both worlds. After a lovely day enjoying the tourist sites of the beautiful Perigord

Vert region, you can take an aperitif on the sun-drenched terrace or enjoy a cooling dip in the 45m2 pool only shared with owners. Designed to accommodate 4 people, the gite comprises two bedrooms (one double

and one equipped with bunk beds), two bathrooms and a kitchen/salon area. The gite is part of a

barn conversion; the owners are resident in the main building and speak English, French, Spanish, Italian and Russian. As well as offering you a warm

welcome, the owners will be available to assist you and ensure that your stay is problem-free.

Enjoy the natural beauty, the picturesque market towns, the chateaux, the gardens and many easily accessible tourist spots. The more active might enjoy canoeing in Brantome or Corgnac sur l'isle, a nearby Velorail amongst other activities.

Further details outdoors

The property consists of 10 hectares of rural agricultural landscape that reminds one of impressionist painting. The adjacent gardens to the main house are carefully groomed with selected specimen plants and we have a very efficient "potager" (vegetable garden) as well as many themed outdoor spaces with seating and tables for your comfort.

We have a beautiful 9 x 4 mts. swimming pool with a surrounding stone terrace. 4 deck chairs and umbrellas are provided in the pool area as well as towels for the exclusive use in this pool area. No food will be permitted in the pool area, nor drinking any type of beverage at the edge of the pool.

There is a childrens play area equipped with swings and a slide that are visible from all rooms in the gîte as well as a seating area with a picnic table near the play area.

We have a pond with several spoiled Carpe-Coi fish...therefore all small children need to be supervised when near this pond.


Further details

We normally work on weekly rentals but might have long weekends and other date combinations upon request.

We appreciate that many visitors may wish to smoke but we would ask that you do not do so in any of the rooms of the gite, both for insurance purposes and in consideration of non-smokers who will be occupying the rooms after your departure.

Animals are not permitted.

Pool is shared with owners.

Guests who wish to use the swimming pool will be asked to sign an indemnity upon arrival.

No article belonging to the Gite may be removed by guests from the vicinity of the Gite. (this includes towels).

Cleaning is the responsibility of the tenant, although for a fee of 50 euros we provide a cleaning service at your departure or during your stay.

A security deposit (guarantee) of 350 Euros will be requested on arrival. This sum will be returned to the tenant on departure, if no damage is noted.


CHECK-OUT: 10:00am

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

Set in Dordogne in the Perigord Vert, where numerous prehistoric sites suggest that CroMagnon man had VERY good taste!!!! Enjoy the natural beauty, the picturesque market towns, the chateaux, the gardens and many easily accessible tourist spots. The more active might enjoy canoeing in Brantome or Corgnac sur l'isle, a nearby Velorail.

The FOOD the WINE!!!!! Perhaps the best wine growing region in the world, is about one and a half hour's drive. The road signs look like the wine-menu of a high-class restaurant!!!


The area is full of pleasant surprises. An almost untouched landscape unveils wherever one decides to glance. One can imagine and re-live prehistoric times through the many cave sites and museums that put in value Dordogne's assets. The very famous Lascaux is less than an hours drive.

You can find a variety of activities catered to all tastes. The Floralis plant and flower show in May in St. Jean de Cole for example is one of the best kept secrets for visiting outside the summer season.

For food and wine lovers, this is culinary paradise!
