"Very relaxing and well equipped."

St. Jory is a lovely, quiet and crime free hamlet situated on a hill top with the traditional Chateau.
The Gite itself is well equipped, spacious, clean and tidy. It has views over the surrounding wooded valley to the south, and is in a good location for touring round the areas many interesting sites.
We would definitely stay there again.
