A saltwater pool to plunge in, National Park trails to explore - take a cookery course using wood-fired ovens for a real taste of France

The Marshall’s plan is for three bright, family-friendly gîtes in the 19th-century barn alongside their deeply rural Dordogne home. Things are shaping up nicely: Cepe is ready now, Sanglier will be available from spring 2018. Annette - who couldn’t be more helpful and is on hand to advise - has created very attractive, practical holiday spaces that are rustic in parts with chunky old beams, apparent stone and brick, and have all the right creature comforts: beautiful new beds and cashmere-filled sprung mattresses. Well kitted out kitchens and bathrooms, including a double-ended bath for two to slip into. Furniture is clean-lined and comfortable: a SW England meets SW France mix. Solar panels heat water, chickens and goats will strut the orchard. And landscaping is underway to make the most of the already lovely setting; each gîte will have its own path to the sunny, saltwater pool area, and its own pool furniture. Take time to stand and stare at the stars, listen to the birds, explore the surrounding forest and visit Périgord’s markets and castles; you can sign up too for a cookery course using wood-fired ovens.

Local points of interest from Annette Marshall:

Local points of interest from
Annette Marshall:

  • The ancient Foret de La Double is brimming with flora, fauna and places for walking and cycling. The national park La Jemaye is only 20 minutes away and is a popular place for families to spend the day
  • At night the skies are incredibly dark - you can sit outside with some hot chocolate and watch shooting stars, the Mily Way appear and try to guess where the satellites are travelling to and from.
  • Rural Gites is a small family run holiday business with a discreet resident owner who is more than happy to help make your holiday special
  • This quieter part of the Dordogne is away from the madding crowds but close to St Emilion, Aubeterre sur Dronne and Perigueux with their beautiful ancient monuments and the valleys of the Rivers Dronne and L'Isle for canoeing and cycling along.
  • The site is rural and with that comes the tranquillity and calm required for a lovely away from it all holiday in a stylish environment
  • The gardens are designed by Jill Foxley, RHS gold medal winner, who is in the process of creating a family friendly beautiful garden for guests and a working garden for the owners
