Enjoy a romantic sunset in the floodlit garden and maybe catch sight of some of the wildlife that have made these grounds their home. Roe deer are to be seen on an almost daily basis and for the last three years the red deer have been present during the rutting season – a truly majestic sight. This gite is a nature lovers dream but is also well located for the major tourist sites and activities.
This gite, on three levels, has been renovated with a view to romance and luxury. Enjoy a kitchen equipped to make life easy should you not wish to venture far. Snuggle up in front of the wood burner in the oak beamed salon on cooler evenings. A dressing room, with double sofa bed, is to be found on the first floor with a luxury double rain shower en suite. Ascend to the galleried landing before entering your very spacious bedroom which includes ambient lighting to create that special mood.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The Dordogne is divided into four regions and the Perigord Noir, home of your holiday gite, is the most diverse. Famed for its beauty, enchanting picturesque sandstone villages with tucked away restaurants where you can sample the delights of the regional specialities of fois gras, truffles and strawberries.
Open air markets are an experience not to be missed. With their evocative scents and sounds these can be found dotted throughout the area on different days in different villages. Night markets are also a feature of the summer months as are countless festivals celebrating, music, dance, food and general 'joie de vie'.
For those who love wine you couldn't have picked a better area in which to stay. Bordeaux, St. Emilion, Pecharment and Bergerac appellations are all within easy reach.
Maison d'Amis is itself situated in the centre of a triangle created by the towns of Sarlat, Bergerac and Perigeux. All steeped in history, packed with shops and interesting things to see and do. Each has its own distinct character and all deserve a visit – if you have time!
Why not visit Maison d'Amis in the off peak seasons of May, June and September. The weather is superb and all the major attractions are open but without the queues, and rental rates are less!
Plazac (hidden gem of the Perigord Noir) is a medieval village steeped in history and full of character. Depending on the time of year, you could find yourself dancing down the main street joining the locals enjoying their summer fete, or maybe, sitting in the audience listening to opera when the music festival is in full swing.
Canoeing, parapenting, cycling, golf and horse riding can all be enjoyed locally for those who are more active. For those who prefer gentler pursuits the Vezere valley is covered in little pathways asking to be explored. Take a picnic and enjoy your lunch by the riverside before ambling home to relax and watch the sunset.
Roque St Christophe, a centre of pre history, is just a five minute drive away. The famous caves of Lascaux, situated in Montignac, and Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, the centre of Pre-history, are both about 15 to 20 mins drive away.
Local Buddhist centres are within a 5 - 10 minute drive and have open days should you wish to experience the Buddhist lifestyle.
