Gite | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
This most delightful of gites is reached along a country lane,winding through cow pastures and flower meadows to where it nestles in the hills overlooking a wooded valley.The dwelling is the conversion of an old tobacco drying barn and every care has been taken to keep the quirky charm of the property while providing every creature comfort. There is a spacious lounge with two french doors opening onto the terrace and with views across the valley.This has been comfortably furnished and has English and French TV, DVD, CD & radio. The same standard of furnishing has been carried through into the dining area where tasteful decoration and careful lighting creates a relaxed ambience. The modern kitchen also has a relaxed feel about it and is fully equipped for easy living.
There is spacious bedroom tastefully furnished and with a roomy king size bed.This also has a french door that opens onto the pretty terrace. The bedroom has a spacious superduper en-suite bathroom with bath,shower,wash basin,bidet and w.c.It also has a heated towel rail so you always have the luxury of dry war towels. Outside there is a very pretty covered terrace running along the front of the gite with wonderful views across the valley, perfect for outside living and those romantic dinners.And,of course there is the obligatory gas b.b.q. for when you really can't be bothered to walk down to the restaurant
The gite has a pretty private garden for sunbathing but with mature trees for those that prefer shade.There is private parking.
For many the blissfully quiet surroundings will be an opportunity to do nothing but relax and recharge the batteries.For others it will be the perfect opportunity for walking,cycling or horse riding and enjoy the rich and varied wildlife - deer,red squirrels,kites,golden oriole,nightingales'nightjars,hoopoe,a miriad of butterflies and abundant wild flowers.
The pretty village of St.Pompon is 10mins. walk away and has all the basic shops,two bars and an excellant restaurant.It is worth taking time to sit in the square and do some serious people watching or saunter through the back lanes and soak up the ambiance. The village celebrates those long Saturday summer evenings with street parties - trestles and benches are set out,local food and wine sold at stalls,music played and dancing in the street - great fun

About this location
The Dordogne region
The Dordogne is part of the Aquitaine region in the south west of France and is famed for its wonderful wooded valleys,glorious rivers and more than a thousand fairy tale castles. The area is steeped in history with many delightful medieval towns and villages.The bastide villages and the history of The Hundred Years War are of particular interest.Visitors come from all over the world to see the cave paintings in the prehistory cave settlements at Les Eyzies and Lascaux,and to visit the many other beautiful underground caverns and caves in the region.
Bergerac area is renowned for its wines as is Cahors In the neighbouring Lot department. Both offer wine tastings and vineyard tours.Nearer to home the Domme vineyard is building a sound reputation for the qaulity of its wines
For foodies there is an endless choise of wonderful restaurants offering such regional fare as truffles,foie gras,walnuts,duck,cassoulet,cepes and much more. The whole area is rich in arts and crafts with many interesting galleries and studios. For retail therapy the cities of Bergerac,Brive,Cahors and Perigueux are all easily reached.
The picturesque medieval village of Daglan is 5 mins.drive away and here you will find the Petit Paris one of the finest gourmet restaurants in the area.Eat outside in the square - very French The romantic cliff villages of Beynac and La Roque Gageac are within easy reach as is the bastide village of Domme with its wonderful views over the Dordogne.
The historic town of Sarlat with countless restaurants, pavement cafes and colourful street markets is just a ride away and the Sunday street market at St Cyprien takes some beating for sheer vitality. Garden lovers are spoilt for choice,with the fantastic topiary gardens at de Manoir d'Eyrignac,at one end of the scale,to the delightful natural Jardins de Albrede at the other.The garden at Marqueyssac with its breathtaking views of the river and the neighbouring chateaux is candlelit on Thursday evenings - Magical. And then,of course, there is the marvelous river - whether its paddling in the shallows,swimming to the islands,picnics on the banks,boat trips from Beynac or simply drifting down river in a canoe...What else is there? glorious !!

"A Little Piece of Heaven"
Petite Maison was enchanting. Beautifully decorated & spotless it had everything we needed. The owner couldn't have been more welcoming & helpful with info on local markets etc.
The peace & calm of the terrace and private garden was a joy with the pretty outlook & bird song. Ideal for our dog too, as we could walk her straight from the gite through fields to the stream or around surrounding country tracks.
We would thoroughly recommend it & hope to return to enjoy again a little piece of heaven.

"The best Gite we have stayed in yet!"
This gite is delightful. The position in the countryside is quiet and you are only deafened by the bird song! We have stayed in a number of French Gites and this is by far the best we have stayed in.
The gite is really well equipped in all ways. The kitchen is modern and has everything we could have wanted. The bathroom was the best I have experienced in France (in both Hotels and Gites). The outside space is well considered; table and chairs, bbq, sunloungers and access to sun and shade (pity it was cold when we went in early April!).
The location is beautiful; quiet, private and surrounded by wildlife. The owner puts up bird feeders and the variety of birds visiting is wonderful. Only a few metres from the gite we saw Hoopoes, a real treat. The gite is short drive from many of the Dordogne's tourist attractions – a bonus to us. This means the area is not busy, but everything you want is within a 5 - 30 minute drive. I am sure in summer this would be a real blessing to get away from the madness of the places closer to the river.
We will certainly be returning to this place and we recommend it to anyone you wants a truly relaxing break.

"Excellent for a relaxing get-away"
We stayed with David over New Year as we have family nearby who could not put us up. David is a lovely host and very accommodating. He strikes a lovely balance between checking everything is ok and leaving you to enjoy your stay in private.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and so comfortable and welcoming, everything you could think you would need is on hand.
We know the area well as we do have family neaby, it is beautiful in the summer and these Gites would be a perfect base to explore the Dordogne region. Thanks David for such a comfortable stay.

"A luxury away from it all perfect little gite"
The Gite is situated down a lovely quiet lane, but just a few minutes' walk from the picturesque village of St Pompon. The photos do not do this property justice so ask David to send you some more before ruling this cottage out. Sitting on the terrace of an evening listening to the absolute calm is truly magical and I would recommend this cottage just for that! The cottage contains every conceivable gadget or device you would need and is spotlessly clean and well appointed.
The village it's self has a fantastic bakers, a butchers, grocery shop, bar tabac, bar and a remarkable restaurant. The village itself is built from the local honey coloured stone and a wander through the back streets to the Chateau are a delight. On a Saturday evening the whole village congregates in the village square where trestle tables are erected and food stalls sell a wide variety of freshly cooked food, there is also music and dancing in the street, a absolutely delightful way to spend a warm summers evening.
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, it is of a high specification with luxury furnishings and huge comfy bed. The situation could not be better, located in a peaceful valley overlooking fields and woodlands, but just a short stroll to the village. The walks around the Gite are numerous and you are unlikely to bump into another soul even in the height of the season.
David and Linda are a delightful couple who will make you feel most welcome and will even offer recommendations for restaurants or places to visit, If you are looking for that extra special cottage and a truly idyllic location, but not too far from civilisation then the Petit Maison de la grange is the perfect choice.

"Tranquil, relaxing gite ideally located to explore the Dordogne."
Spent two weeks here and that was not long enough. Gite is quiet, just outside a small village. Comfortable, with everything you need. Owners are on site and helpful but not intrusive. Location is … More
