Description from owner
This gite has been awarded 5 star luxury by the French authorities, a much coveted award guaranteeing excellence and 4 Keys from CleVacances.
This 400 year old former stable has been lovingly restored and brought back to life. The character of exposed stonework and oak beams has been carefully integrated and retains its original features. On the ground floor, the open plan living room with a woodburner firplace, flagstone floors, fully equipped with French satelite TV, UK Freeview channels, DVD player, stereo, DCs and books provides the perfect atmosphere for relaxing and unwinding after a busy day of sight-seeing. There is also WIFI and ADSL internet access. L'Ecurie's rustic charm and modern amenities provide a wonderful base for exploring the Dordogne.
The open plan dining room and the fully equipped kitchen including a bosch fridge/freezer, are all spacious and furnished with great care and sensitivity providing comfortable accommodation all year-round.
You have a safe for your money and passports etc.

A suntrap south-facing terrace gives direct access to the gated 10x4x1.8mtr heated salt pool, with sunbathing terrace and lawned garden with children's play equipment. The pool is shared between L'Ecurie and Le Chai Gite, next door.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the 1st floor. There are two double-bedded rooms, one a 4-poster and shower ensuite, overlooking the back of the gite towards the river.

“Spellbinding ... What a hidden gem!”
My family has just returned from 2 weeks at L'Ecurie Gite... wishing we had booked for 3 weeks and looking forward to returning soon. L'Ecurie (and the neighbouring gite) are of an excellent standard, with plenty of considerate touches (bountiful welcome pack of food and drink, quality furnishings and linen, coffee machines ... and coffee, change of linen during your stay, etc). The photos on the website don't capture just how beautiful, relaxing and well equipped a place this is. As you enter the gite from the cobbled private driveway (shared with the sister gite) you are taken back with the size of the gite with its open plan layout downstairs and beautifully preserved beams visible in the rafters. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need for your stay. 3 double sofas sit around a huge tv (excellent for DVDS). Expansive table and chairs for indoor dining. Upstairs are 3 very large rooms with very comfy beds :) and excellent standard of bathrooms. Then you step out of the back door onto your secluded balcony patio (fenced off for safety) and the first thing that hits you is the beautiful sound of the river and weir, situated 200m across the lawns with trees all around. Here you will find 2 canoes providing plenty of fun for all the family. Out the front of the property (across the driveway is the secluded and fully enclosed private pool and garden) with an abundance of loungers in shade and full sun, alongside table tennis and badminton with swings for the younger visitors (bikes are available for the older ones). A perfect place to while away the hours. As for location, that too cannot be bettered. A short walk from the village, 10 min from Brantome and about the same from St Jean de Cole (both of which have to be visited) and within easy reach of so much more. And then,of course, there are the Rothwells. A wonderful family who offer a genuine welcome to their guests. Thank you for making our stay so much fun. The only problem I see in the future is that once the word is out on how good this is we wont be able to get booked in again!!!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for such a lovely review and such great photos too. Looking forward to seeing you at Christmas!
“As ever, a wonderful stay”
We've now stayed a couple of times with Amanda & Giles & look forward to our third......hopefully next year, for longer, & possibly with our grandchildren. Relaxed & very hospitable hosts + excellent accommodation & facilities. What more do you want! It's a charming area of France.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for such kind words, they're really appreciated. Looking forward to meeting the grandchildren next Summer.
