Description from owner

Description

La Fournil is an old bakehouse which has been lovingly restored and includes a wealth of character and original features with honey coloured stonework, oak beams and vaulted ceilings with exposed timbers. It is one of an ensemble of beautiful old farm buildings dating back to the 16th century and forms part of La Ferme de La Tour. With a large chlorine free pool and surrounded by magnificent countryside, a network of pretty footpaths and a neighbouring historical chateau, it is a perfect base from which to explore the Dordogne and Lot.

WIFI is available throughout.

The breathtaking valley views and surrounding grounds of woodlands and meadows will overwhelm you with a feeling of peace and tranquillity disturbed only by the abundance of wildlife and the occasional distant tractor. The heated pool, which is bathed in sunshine from dawn to dusk, is perfectly sited to maximise the views, enabling you to relax and admire the ever changing colours of the Dordogne valley. Friendly

The Dordogne region

Situated within the hamlet of La Tour we are two minutes from the pretty village of Sainte Nathalene with a hotel bar restaurants and a small shop. Just 7 miles from the historical town of Sarlat-la Caneda, with more listed buildings than any other town in Europe and a twice weekly market, we are perfectly placed to access all of the most beautiful sites in Dordogne and Lot.

The area is a walkers paradise. Hundreds of footpaths weave there way throughout the area with superb countryside and views along the way. Information and maps are available on request.

There are numerous chateaux to visit, caves to explore and pretty market towns to meander through. There is also a wide range of outdoor activities for all ages close by.

Aquitaine/Dordogne

Sarlat is a town not to be missed during a visit to Dordogne. The town, with a truly relaxed and laid back atmosphere is the jewel of Perigord Noir and is arguably the gastronomic capital of Dordogne. The medieval buildings that fill the town are the perfect backdrop for the large colourful market, full of local fruit and vegetables and all the gastronomic delights of the area, not to mention all the nik naks you would expect to find at a market of this magnitude.

The restaurants, cafes and bars offer a superb choice to suit all your needs. There is a regular array of street entertainment which you can enjoy whilst dining on a warm sunny evening or whilst sitting enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by during the day..

Tiny narrow streets wind their way through the town and around each corner is yet another building steeped in history and charm with a tale to tell from yesteryear. A listed walk of around an hour is available from the tourist office which takes you around the town highlighting the many points of interest the beauty and history.

“Dreamy Dordogne”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2011

We (sadly) returned from Le Fournil on Saturday, with heavy hearts and happy memories. This little gite is a real gem, offering us everything we needed and more. We chose the Dordogne for the views, people and peace. It delivered on all counts. Our gite was so lovely, that each night, we couldn't wait to get back to sit out on the terrace after a cooling dip in the pool, with a wine from our ever-so reliable fridge and listen to the changing wildlife as day turned to night. The view from the terrace is outstanding. Even when it rained it was fun under our huge umbrella. We did have intentions of hiring bikes, however we realised when there that we really needed a car to get to a shop. The gites are quite isolated, but we didn't find that a bad thing. Just go on any of the recommended walks detailed in the information provided and you will find all manner of fruit and nut trees ready for picking. Speaking of information, our thanks go to Chris & Kate for preparing the most comprehensive guide to the local area, walks, restaurants. It became our bible. Perhaps one tip would be to add some addresses/maps to enable us to find some of the recommendations more easily. If I were to suggest one thing that was glaringly missing - just a pump hand soap in the bathroom please. Aside from that, it was perfect! Thank you.

“Relaxed stay in beautiful countryside”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2011

We enjoyed our stay very much at La Ferme de la Tour. Chris and Kate were very helpful and gave us good advice on walks, places of interest and restaurants. We enjoyed the range of walks from the Gite (with guides in the handbook at the property). Sarlat is a beautiful town - within easy reach - and with a good selection of restaurants for lunch or dinner. If possible do lunches - they are much better value! The Gite was well equipped although I found the bed and pillows a little uncomfortable. The lack of a grill was a slight hindrance also but the views from the patio more than made up for these little grumbles. The Dordogne is a wonderful and very attractive part of France. Some of the river scenery is breathtaking ( try a river cruise - great value and English commentary via headphones). We drove to the property from Bordeaux airport which is a bit of a slog (about 3 hours). Chris gave very good directions for us and we managed without hassle. Be aware of Bordeaux's mad rush hour when returning to the airport early morning and leave extra time! All in all, a very enjoyable stay. We would heartily recommend it!
