"Quiet, relaxing, great location 15 mins from Sarlat and owners brilliant"

three children 13, 12 and 9, no wifi actually a benefit they actually played together, darts, ping pong, lizard hunting and reading, yes folks! Mum and Dad had a relaxing time also reading by pool. Nearby activities, canoeing on Dordogne and L'Appel de Foret for ariel walkways, zip wires. St Genies is picture postcard with market on Sundays. Although not walkable, 7 mins in car. We have been three times before to this region to Gites and this was our best experience.
