Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

This region offers crystal clean air and fertile ground in which truffles, nuts and mushrooms flourish, and the local farmers breed geese and ducks to produce the world's most exquisite foie gras. The hot Summer here is perfect for the vine, where local vineyards produce globally acclaimed wines and many other regional tipples, like Monbazillac and Pecharment.

There are many places of historical interest well worth a visit. All the local Bastide towns of Eymet, Monflanquin, Castillonnes, Villereal and the simply beautiful villages of Monpazier, Issigeac (with its beautiful medieval houses and bishops palace).

These Bastide towns, so characteristic of the area, were constructed by both the French and the English when this area was fought over during the 100 Years War and the towns frequently changed hands, in the case of Castillonnes having been divided down the middle for many years.

There are many interesting places for walkers and day trips. The renowned prehistoric sites of the eastern Dordogne, the famous cave paintings at Lascaux especially, the old cave dwellings including Roc St Christophe and many caves with wall paintings, etc. There are also the very pretty towns of Sarlat, Domme set on top of the hills, Roc Gageac on a cliff beside the river and the castles of Beynac and Biron.

Ample for 2 to 4 people, this light and spacious cottage is an ideal self -catering home from which to enjoy the tranquil and peaceful grounds of Domaine de Juliette; close to all attractions and amenities and a perfect base to explore the delights of the Dordogne. A perfect romantic setting for couples, or an ideal location for any family or small group wishing to explore the rich and varied activities available in the area. We also welcome pets, where our situation here far from any traffic and immense grounds lends itself for being a wonderful environment for dogs too.

The surrounding grounds comprise of 6.5 acres of open fields, meadow, lush landscaped gardens for you to explore and find a shady spot to relax in during your stay. There is an 11m x 6 m Romanesque style swimming pool set within a walled garden and loungers are provided to while away the hours under your own walnut tree. Figs, plums, and cherries are just some of the fruit trees you can sample and enjoy for breakfast or supper; dining al fresco on your veranda. A BBQ, full sized boules pitch, table tennis and badminton court are at your disposal or take a stroll direct from your door, not a main road in sight or ear shot!!

This really is a truly perfect environment to recharge those batteries, discover quiet moments, doze in a hammock, let your children loose to explore and venture, and indulge in the French pace of life.

The night skies here are also so terrific, with the discovery of shooting stars, glow worms and utter silence being yet another joy to enjoy from a stay at Domaine de Juliette.

Lastly, you can find reviews of Domaine de Juliette on Tripadvisor to see ten years of satisfied guests experiences.

Eymet

One of the most popular villages in the area is Eymet, just 2Km from us, making us a perfect location for enjoying this beautiful historic Bastide village.

During the summer months there are local festivals and fetes galore for you to enjoy or take the time toexplore the exquisite chateaux of the area

There are several golf courses ranging from 10 minutes to 60 minutes drive away, which include the famous French course at Chateau Vigier.

The Dropt, Dordogne and the Vizhre rivers offer either tranquil, or exciting canoeing and boating, with excellent fishing points in all directions.

There are masses of tracks for walking and cycling, and horse riding stables can be found locally at Sadillac.

Interesting places for walkers and day trips include The prehistoric sites of the eastern Dordogne, the famous cave paintings at Lascaux, the old cave dwellings including Roc St Christophe and many caves with wall paintings, etc. There are also the very pretty towns of Sarlat, Domme set on top of the hills, Roc Gageac on a cliff beside the river and the castles of Beynac and Biron.

Finally, the small wine growing town of St Emilion on the road to Bordeaux is not to be missed.

“Can't wait to return”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

Having just spent a memorable week ( with husband and springer spaniel ... Ellie) at Gites du Capulet, we moved north as the Gite was fully booked for our second week( am not surprised!). The accomodation was exceptionally spacious, well resourced and perfect for everything we needed. The bed was large and very comfortable, with doors that opened onto a patio overlooking the open fields. The spacious lounge had a long verandah which was perfect for relaxing and eating in the long evening sunshine! The pool was especially pleasing to cool down or swim ( left that to the husband). The gardens, which were full of fruit trees and beautiful flowers, were spacious and full of different nooks and crannies where you could sunbathe in peace or snooze in the shade! Denise and Brian ... our hosts.... were so friendly, they made our stay really relaxing and gave us loads of tips on where to go and which restaurants to choose! The area was full of wildlife including red squirrels, red deer and red kites! There were lots of quaint villages to visit ... we loved Eymet....as we meandered through the valleys. A great week, an excellent choice of accomodation. Can't wait to visit again!

“Good location, adequate gite, lovely owners”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

We stayed here last week and had a lovely time. The owners are very helpful and their terrace is facing the Gite de Capulet so you can't miss each other, but if you don't want to be overlooked, we found a private quiet spot in the side garden. The pool is shared by the owners and other larger gite so there is some noise from the pool but wasn't really a problem. The gite was perfectly adequate and the bed was one of the biggest most comfortable we have ever slept in. Good location for exploring.
