Caminade looking from the west

Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

Are you looking for a quick autumn break then hopefully Caminade is what you are looking for. From Saturday 4 October our lower prices start at £300.00 for a week. I am also happy to take shorter breaks or long weekends.

Caminade is ideally situated for quiet relaxing break before the winter starts. Enjoy a gite in the countryside but within easy reach of tourist sites and amenities.

Caminade comprises on one level an entrance hall leading to the , kitchen/lounge, 2 double bedrooms, both en-suite. Terrace at the rear of the gite over looking the countryside. A heated swimming pool at the front of the gite completely private. (The pool is closed from the 4 October 2014) To the rear of property within 100 yards is a small lake belonging to Caminade containing some large carp.

Dave & I live on site but the pool and gite area is for the use of the gite clients. We are available at all time for any problems you may have or to point you in the right direction for attractions, local markets or restaurants to eat at.

Caminade is in a prime position for wine tasting with many chateaux and St Emilion a short drive to the west. If you just wish to relax by the pool or visit the Lake de Gurcon just a 10 minute car drive away or may be you require a more energetic holiday with horse riding school as neighbours, a 2 minutes walk away, canoeing on the river Dordogne, tennis, bike riding etc.... all within easy reach.

Further details

The heated swimming pool is situated at the front of the property and is completely private for the full use of the gite and over looks the countryside.

The Lake:  is to the rear of the property and has recently been stocked with a number of large Carp.  

The Aquitaine region

Caminade is situated in a quiet corner of the Dordogne surrounded by countryside. But with in a 10 minute drive you can be in the beautiful market town of Ste Foye la Grande or jump on the motorway and you are only 60 mins from Bordeaux or Perigueux.

A lot of visitors to Caminade enjoy sitting by the pool and relaxing but for the more energetic of you we have close by tennis courts, a small golf course, horse riding or fishing in our lake. The lake holds carp up to 15 lbs they are wiley fish and take some catching but we have had some satisfied customers who have managed to catch one or two. Or perhaps you like walking with or with out a dog in which case we have lots of walks for you to enjoy.

Sight seeing is a a must for a lot of our clients and they find Caminade is situated perfectly for travelling either way to to enjoy most of the sights in the area.

Sainte Foy-la-Grande

St Meard de Gurcon, the nearest village, is a 5 minute car ride away and you have all the amenities shops, bars etc., a 15 minute car ride away at Montpon Menestrel.

Local restaurants provide excellent cuisine and a fine selection of wines for you to enjoy. Also there are plenty of activities in the area, horse riding, golf, fishing, swimming, bike riding, go karting.

"lovely gite in superb location"

we had a lovely 2 week holiday and although the weather was changeable it did not spoil our stay, we found our hosts Lynette and Dave very welcoming and were very helpful but not intrusive, the gite is very characterful, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The pool was great to use on the hot sunny days of our stay and Poppy was very entertaining with her unique twist on "fetch" while you were in the pool, how she resists not jumping in the pool to retrieve the ball is beyond me but she did! We would definitely recommend staying here and when we return to the Dordogne this is where we will stay
