Description from owner

The Old Apple Store is one of two gites that have recently been refurbished. It is set in a small complex comprising the owners house and two independent gites on a 5 acre site situated in the peaceful hamlet of Puymangou in the Western Dordogne.

The property is full of character having been created from the original farm cottage and the old apple store. There is a bright sunny lounge/diner with a log burner and wonderful views of the countryside. Stairs lead up to the double bedroom and bathroom with bath and separate shower (both with stunning views) Leading off the living area is a spacious kitchen opening onto a private decked area with barbecue and outdoor seating. A separate open plan stairway leads up from the kitchen to a mezzanine bedroom with twin beds. (This may not be suitable for very young children) We can also provide a travel cot on request.

Outside you will find a swimming pool and professional standard tennis court and of course plenty of space to find a quiet corner

Outside you will find a swimming pool and professional standard tennis court and of course plenty of space to find a quiet corner to sit with a book, sketch pad or simply contemplate the tranquil countryside. We also have several bicycles which can be borrowed to explore the beautiful surroundings.

One of the original barns has been turned into a games room with pool table and dartboard - the perfect place to relax over a drink in the evening. The sunsets are quite spectacular and once the sun has set the night sky is ablaze with stars.

The Dordogne region

Located just inside the Dordogne/Charente border you will have easy access to all that these two regions have to offer. The Dordogne is famous for its scenery, beautiful architecture, famous chateaux, prehistoric caves and not forgetting local specialities including truffles, foie gras, cheeses and of course wine. You can travel inland and drive along the Dordogne valley with magnificent castles perched on the clifftops, perhaps visit the interesting towns of Bergerac, Perigueux or Libourne or beautiful Brantome known as the "Venice" of the area with its many waterways running throughout the town.

Travelling westwards the towns and beaches of the Gironde estuary are just over an hour away by car. The wonderful city of Bordeaux is also around an hour away as are the many vineyards for which the area is famous. For the serious wine buff a trip to the famous wine producing area of the Medoc is a must where some of the biggest names in wine are produced - Lafite, Mouton-Rothschild and Margaux to name but a few. The stunning Unesco-listed hilltop village of St Emilion is well worth a visit for the beauty of its setting,medieval buildings and cobbled streets. You can also visit the underground labyrinth of catacombs including an 11th Century church and the saint's cave.

La Roche Chalais

Puymangou is close to St Aulaye, which has a supermarket, basic shops, post office and bank. Further afield the towns of Chalais and La Roche-Chalais have a wider range of facilities. Most towns and villages have a weekly open-air market, one of the biggest being in nearby Riberac.

Driving along the peaceful country roads you come upon one pretty village after another, many with Romanesque churches, quaint local houses and usually a bar or restaurant. A short drive away is Aubeterre-sur-Dronne, one of the most beautiful villages in France with it's riverside setting, pretty square full of tables and chairs, and old wooden-balconied houses spilling down the hillside. It is particularly famous for its subterranean monolithic church carved from the hillside and still used for weddings and concerts.

The area offers a wide choice of leisure pursuits. There are river beaches at Aubeterre and St. Aulaye, the latter also has a tree-climbing adventure playground. At Lake Jemaye (14km) there is a large supervised sandy beach by the lake which offers swimming, fishing and canoeing. River canoeing is also available at several sites on local rivers. At nearby Parcoul Water Park (5km) you will find a lake beach, small playpark, waterslides and paddle boats. Fishing, golf, horseriding, cycling and walking are all available in the area.

The Dordogne is a popular area for artists and craftsmen with many shops and galleries offering works by local artists. If you are interested in painting or photography you will be spoilt for choice, whether your interest is countryside, flora and fauna, architecture or local colour. St Aulaye is famous for its Museum of Pastels and every summer there is an International Exhibition of Pastels held in the town.
