Brenda and Michael welcome you to La Muscadelle, Gite/Chambres d'hotes - Sleeps 6/7.
Nestling in a small peaceful hamlet, la Muscadelle is in the perfect situation to enjoy views of the surrounding countryside and woodland. It offers a lovely terrace and pool area for the day and those relaxing warm evenings. Raised, with views down the valley. Attached to the main house, the whole terrace and solar heated pool is private to you. The house is completely independent. The house provides you with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room and inside dining room as well as outside dining for those Al fresco balmy evenings. The house is spacious, and just ideal for that much needed break away.The Double forest has man made sandy swimming lakes, walking, cycling, canoing, walking, horse riding nature reserves and large carp fishing lakes. Two of the region's main roads (A89 and RN89) are within 5km, providing access to the many attractions nearby making this a great holiday base. Visit the many Bastide villages and Chateaux in the region. The busy and popular market towns of Ribérac, Périgueux and Bergerac on the banks of the river Dordogne are all within 30km, the a89 motorway provides quick and direct access to Bordeaux and the beaches of the Atlantic ocean. 33kms from Bergerac airport. Wine tasting is fun and enjoyable and we can recommend and book a tour of the vineyards for you on request. The Dordogne is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of south west France and the visitor is spoilt for choice as to how to spend their time.
We love everything French and offer you a welcome drink on arrival. We will show you around your gite and provide you with information of the area and its main 'must do' sites, villages and areas to visit. Even if you want to 'chill' for most of your holiday it is good to know if any of these sites may be of interest to you. If you arrive late, tired and want to just rest, then we can meet up with you the next day at your convenience.
French doors from the lounge, kitchen and downstairs bedroom all provide direct access to the elevated terrace and swimming pool. One side of the terrace is covered providing an ideal spot for barbecues and outside dining. Shops and café/bar 8km, restaurant 2km. Free wifi and private parking. Clean and comfortable rooms with quality bedding. Welcome basket with wine, bread and other goodies of the region. Solar-heated swimming pool. Private parking for up to three vehicles.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. Place settings for 10 and more.
We provide hoover, mop/bucket etc., for your use.
The living room has a three seater and a two seater settee. Plus a chair. Coffee table and side table. More chairs can be provided if required.
There is a flat screen 42 inch television with free Sat, DVD player and a docking station for Ipods.
The large entrance hall is also the inside dining area and library. There are three full book cases with authors familiar to all readers. Board games for children and adults. Dining Room Table with 6 chairs.
Towels and linen are included. We provide swimming pool towels at no extra cost on request. We provide fresh linens/towels each week. If you are staying more than one week and you wish for your rooms to be cleaned again throughout after 7 days then we would ask for an additional charge for this.
Outside on the terrace we have a covered area with a large table and seating for 'alfresco' dining. The pool is private to you and heated by solar. It is a nice size at 8.5m x 4.5m. The depths are 1 metre at the shallow end with the Roman steps. 1.3 in the middle part and 1.8 at the deep end. So very suitable for non swimmers or young children as well as strong swimmers. There is also a covered terrace just outside the downstairs rooms with tables and chair loungers. This provides extra protection from the heat of the sun as well as plenty of loungers and umbrellas on the terrace. A BBQ for cooking outside.
We do have some excellent golf courses in the region:
The Château les Merles, 3 Chemin des Merles, 24520 Mouleydier is 44 minutes
Golf des Vigiers, Château des Vigiers, 24240 Monestier is 44 minutes
Golf Club de Périgueux, Domaine de Saltgourde, 24430 Marsac-sur-l'Isle is just
The West Coast beaches are 1 hour plus 45 minutes from us so do-able in the day. But, we do have sandy beaches and lakes within 30 minutes. These sandy beaches are man made with large lakes and with all the conveniences you would expect. They are well managed with lifeguards, purity of water checked regularly, canoing, children's safe play areas, restaurants and shops. There are pictures of Jemaye Beach included in the photos on display.
We are 55 minutes from Bordeaux Airport. 35 minutes from Bergerac Airport. 1hr 10mins to Brive Airport. We are not far to the motorway which is helpful if you are driving from a port. We would recommend that car hire is essential. We can also recommend a car hire company if required.
We are 5 minutes by car to the nearest villages. Which both have excellent restaurants. We are 8 minutes from a large market town which offers restaurants, bars, banks and shops. We can recommend restaurants to you. It also offers the main supermarkets Intermarche, Lydl, and SuperU.
Visit the Montréal Chateau nearby to us.
Claude de Pontbriant, the Lord of Montréal, cupbearer of the Dauphin, was, on 3 October 1535, alongside Jacques Cartier on the banks of the Saint Laurent River when the navigator gave his name to an Indian village which later was to become the second largest French city in the world. The Pontbriant family founded the City of Montreal in Canada and named if after the castle we see here today.
The well known World Heritage site of St Emilion at (102km) with its historical architecture, famous wine and available vineyard tours which include wine tasting.
Bergerac vineyard tours (35kms) we can recommend where you should go to taste and buy superb wine at a good price. We lived in the Bergerac wine area for 6 years.
For the more 'energetic', there is canoing, walking, horse riding, cycling and swimming.
A visit to the famous Lascaux caves is a must.

Our third year in Filloulas and what a joy with all the family as they passed through. Lovely to meet the new owners Mike and Brenda. Spent a lovely three weeks here this year - new sites to see, Le Gouffre Du Padirac (a must!)
and La Site du Grand Roc (along with La Cave Du Rossignac - both can be done in one day). If weather is good also try L'etang of Jemaye.
