Gite | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Maison d'amis is a delightful Perigordine gite with stunning views. Totally renovated to a high standard in 2010. It is set within easy walking distance of the medieval village of Plazac with its bar, cafe, post office, bio co-op and boulangerie.
Wake up to bird song and eat your breakfast on your private terrace with its unique Perigordine BBQ. A perfect place to unwind in the evening with a glass of wine ….. or two!!
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.
Apart from the owners who live on site, should you need any assistance during your stay, you have sole access to the grounds.

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.

"A lovely place to stay in the most beautiful countryside."
The gite was lovely, clean and very well equipped. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful with everything from recommending places to visit, to the best local restaurants, even providing directions on how to get there!!
The gite is set in beautiful grounds and we enjoyed exploring these along with many other walks in the local area. May was a beautiful time of year to visit, the wildlife and meadow flowers were lovely. The setting is beautiful and well placed for many local attractions - we had the loveliest week and would recommend to others without hesitation.
We hope to visit again!

"Maison d'Amis met all our needs, location beautiful, lots to do in the area"
Maison d'Amis is fully equipped,comfortable and spotlessly clean. Linda and Stephen the hosts are excellent they allow you your own space but are always there if required. The location of the property is so peaceful, fantastic for nature lovers, deer actually visit the garden, being able to walk in the woods belonging to the property is an added bonus.There is so much to do and see in the local area and further a field if required, we would recommend a visit to the towns of Montignac, Sarlat, Bergerac and Domme to mention just a few. Our hosts recommended a canoe trip on the Vesere river, it lived up to their recommendations and we took another trip in a different location because we enjoyed the experience so much, it is a must for all ages especially as the river is very tranquil (very shallow).We wish we could have stayed longer and have no hesitation in recommending Maison d'Amis,we hope to return in the future.

"Excellent accomodation and location."
This accomodation was spotlessly clean and well presented. The location is superb - set in stunning countryside far enough off the beaten track to provide plenty of peace and tranquility yet close enough to all ammenities. The Vezere valley is beautiful with a myriad of prehistoric sites worth seeing. The owners Stephen and Linda are lovely people, kind and attentive to our needs but also unobstrusive. We cannot rate our two week stay highly enough and we WILL be returning in the near future.

"Perfect gite in a fantastic location."
The gite has been renovated to an exceptional standard and is situated in a beautiful position in a quiet valley. This is an excellent location for a relaxing getaway, and an ideal base from which to visit the numerous stunning towns and villages in the Dordogne and Vezere regions. The owners live next door and could not have been better hosts. The warm welcome on our arrival, the introduction to the property and it's facilities, and the advice they offered regarding places we might like to visit set us up ideally for a perfect week away. Can't wait to go back!

"Well appointed, spacious gite for two where everything has been thought of."
This lovely gite is located in a quiet and pretty location close to the Vezere valley where there is lots to see and do. The nearby village of Plazac has a Post Office, boulangerie and Bio-Coop, and a big new InterMarche is only 15 minutes' drive away. The gite itself has been tastefully refurbished throughout, maintaining original features but with all mod cons. The owners, who live next door, are welcoming, friendly and helpful, providing a first-night meal (pre-booked) to save cooking when you arrive. They also brought round some fruit and vegetables from their garden, and were happy for us to help ourselves to fruit from trees in the grounds - apples and figs - during our stay.

"Great place for couples"
Wonderfuly spacious and cozy conversion which is perfect for couples who want to sightsee while relaxing in the Dordoigne countryside. All mod cons and an extensive library that you can orrow from. Linda and Stephen were perfect hosts, always cheerful and helpful. The grounds are worth exploring as there is a pleasant wood at the top of the plot which they own and you may see deer. It's well situated for the villages of the Vezerre valley and we'd highly recommend the Restauatant de la Poste in Saint Leon Sur Vezere as a place for lunch
