Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

Perigueux is the capital of the Dordogne region. The medieval part of the town comes alive on Wednesdays and Saturdays when local artisans display their first class produce, including cured meats, truffles, foie-gras and pies or 'pates de Perigueux'. La Cite, once a pivotal Gallo-Roman site of Versunna, is also worth a foray. If you walk up the hill from La Cite you'll come to the Cathedrale St. Front which proved to be a trial run for the architect Abadie who later went on to design the Sacre-Couer in Paris. Angouleme, a cathedral city, used to be dominated by paper mills but now has a thriving tourist industry. The old town occupies a steep sided plateau overlooking a bend in the River Charente. It has many charms. Brantome, the 'Venice of the Perigord' is surrounded by a loop in the River Dronne. The towns pride is its Benedictine Abbey. It's a must see as is St. Emillion, although this means a one and a half hours drive. The landscape around 'La Croix' has changed little over the last century, undulating with fields of sunflowers, maize and many walnut orchards.

Bouteilles-Saint-Sebastien

You will find a large sandy beach on the River Dronne at Aubeterre about 15 minutes drive away. There is a cafe and lots of large trees and canopies if you need to seek shade. You will also find another pleasant river beach of white sand which is well maintained at St Aulaye at about the same distance. la Jemaye is a fantastic lake with a white sandy beach, beautiful sunsets, with a chic resturant perfect for a sun downer.
Verteillac and St. Severin with small shops, banks and post offices are 5-10 minutes away. Riberac, large market town with hypermarkets is 15 mins away. Aubeterre is 15 mins. away. Sunday market, river beach, restaurants off the tree lined square, small Sunday market. Angouleme, Perigueux and Brantome are 40 mins drive away.

“Very disappointed”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2016

We started on a bad foot being unable to find the gite in the dark. No signage on the property. The key to the gite didn't work .The afore mentioned owners dog could open our door and get in but couldn't get out. Owners dog now also on heat ! We were travelling with our 2 small dogs . We left them in their large cage inside the gite. A manic few days! Beautiful shower in the property and wifi very reliable but otherwise quite poorly equipped.

Owner's reply: Sorry your stay in the gite was so manic. Our dog now after first season has been spayed and lock can be fixed. Glad you enjoyed the shower and wifi. Sorry you didn't have more time to enjoy the garden and countryside. We are very rural and difficult to find!

“Perfect solace and charm in the French country”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2014

After traveling through much of Northern Europe, this respite was the perfect place for us to recharge and relax. Fast internet, comfortable bed, friendly hosts and plenty of places to enjoy day trips nearby. The next time we visit France, this will be our go-to for relax time!
