Wonderful holiday, gîte beautiful, weather gorgeous, company excellent. Thanks for making our stay so perfect.

Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

The Vézère Valley in the Dordogne is a beautiful and unspoilt part of France and offers lovely countryside for walking, cycling, canoeing and horse riding as well as opportunities to relax, eat and drink. The villages on the Vézère each hold their own fete, during the summer, which culminates in a lavish firework display. The lovely old town of Montignac holds its own music festival each summer playing host to music and dance groups from across the world. In addition there are often concerts in local village churches. You can find a market somewhere in one of the local villages or in the larger towns of Sarlat and Montignac pretty much any day of the week.

Places of Interest:
• La Roque St Christophe is one of many historical sites from pre-historic times located in the area; it is just a short walk from Le Sol, about 1.5km away. The 1km long caves were first inhabited 55,000 years ago
• The town of Montignac is approximately 15km from the gite. There are plenty of riverside cafes, shops & a large supermarket just outside the town. Tickets for Lascaux can be bought in Montignac.
• The beautiful medieval town of Sarlat is about a forty minute drive away and has an all day market every Wednesday and Saturday.
• Maison Forte De Reignac (inhabited from prehistoric times up to the 19th century) is approximately a 10 minute drive from the town of Les Eyzies where the region's new and impressive museum is located.
• In Le Bugue a short drive in the direction of Les Eyzies there is an aquarium and a glass blower.
• There is go-karting a 30 minute drive from the house in the direction of Perigueux.

Peyzac-le-Moustier

Le Moustier is a tiny village in the Vézère Valley in the Dordogne, one of the most beautiful areas of France and famous for its lovely villages, castles and sites of great antiquity; the famous cave paintings at Lascaux being, perhaps, the best known. The village of Le Moustier has a well stocked boulangerie/épicerie and an excellent auberge, both of which are open throughout the year.
Places to eat:
• Auberge Napolénnienne (formerly the Vimont) is situated in the village of Le Moustier just a short walk from the house and serves good local food and wine.
• About 1.5km from the house in the direction of Peyzac is the Roque St Christophe where there is a small cafe which serves lunch during the summer.
• There is a restaurant at Le Paradis campsite, this is about a 2km walk along the river path.
• There are number of restaurants in the town of Les Eyzies, approximately 12km from the gîte.
• La Source restaurant in Tursac (about 5 km away) has vegetarian food on the menu.
• Montignac (15 km away) has lots of restaurants and cafes.
• Most of the local villages have their own restaurants, many with traditional menus.

“A fabulous holiday with a very warm welcome”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2016

This is a beautiful home from home. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The terrace and garden area are places of peace and then there's fun by the pool too. The owners were very welcoming and get it just right, knowing when to be around and when not. The children loved the open space, the pool and feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs. Fresh croissants from the local Boulangerie are delicious and just a minute's walk from the door. The house is in a great position for visiting all the local sites and outdoor activities. I would certainly love to come again.

“The perfect location”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2015

Le Sol could not be better placed - the Vezere valley is absolutely beautiful, nicer (we think) than the Dordogne and much closer to all the pre-historic sights, and right opposite the Roque St Chrisophe - we could see it from the garden! There is a boulangerie about 2 minutes walk from the gite and the pool was amazing - quite big, the perfect temperature in the heat and beautifully clean. My daughter loved the good broadband connection and Ken and Carole could not have been more helpful. Don't miss a canoe trip along the Vezere and a trip to St. Leon. Such a relaxed and comfortable holiday, we would go back tomorrow.

“Great gite in perfect location”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2015

We had a really lovely holiday here. Le Sol is perfectly situated for visiting the many lovely towns and villages round about, and there is lots to do right on the doorstep - beautiful walks and cycles, canoeing, great restaurants etc. The gite was ideal for our party of 6 - spacious, well-equipped, full of character and spotlessly clean. The pool was a delight! Carole and Ken were perfect hosts - friendly, helpful and informative, without being obtrusive. All their recommendations proved to be a total success. Would highly recommend.

“A lovely gite in a beautiful part of France”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2015

We stayed for a week in Le Sol in July 2015 and had a wonderful holiday. Le Sol is very comfortable and Carole and Ken are great hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and their knowledge of the area was invaluable. Not being familiar with the Dordogne, we explored cave paintings, fortified houses, canoeing on the Vezere (a favourite with the children) buddhist retreats (!), local markets, potteries and more. The house has everything you need and with a patisserie, restaurant and the Vezere river within walking distance (and large supermarkets within 15 mins drive) it was ideally and idyllically situated. We will be back....

“Superbly located, family friendly, comfortable accommodation”

Reviewed 29 May 2013

Our party of five adults and a two-year-old had a great time at Le Sol. The property has plenty of space inside, and outside, the terrace, patio and garden are a safe area for children to play in: our grandson particularly enjoyed looking for the hens, playing football on the front patio and searching for "Eddie Lizard". The owners, Carole and Ken, are very helpful and friendly, whilst also being unobtrusive: all our enquiries and requests were dealt with promptly, efficiently and with a smile. Le Moustier may be a tiny village but it boasts a good boulangerie and small bar/restaurant, and it is an ideal location for visiting places such as Sarlat, Montignac, Le Bugue, and the stunning Roque St Cristophe and for walks along the Vezere river and surrounding countryside.

“A really relaxing holiday in a very interesting location”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2012

This was our fifth visit to Le Sol, which must speak for itself. Our holidays in the past have included friends and relatives or just the two of us as on this occasion. The gite is large enough to accommodate parties up to six comfortably but it is the location which has made out stays here so enjoyable. La Roque St Christophe is literally a ten minute walk away, and there are plenty of other historic sites within a longer walk or a short drive. Our favourite destination has to be St Leon, which is about ten minutes drive up the valley - very picturesque with some really good places to eat. The auberge in the village (5 mins walk) serves simple but very pleasant food either inside or on the terrace. Whether lounging by the pool, lazing on the patio, or eating a leisurely meal on the terrace, we look forward each year to our sojourn in this really peaceful and fascinating part of the world. We just wish our holidays here could be longer!
