Chartreuse le Cariol

Naussannes, Dordogne

A great little gîte: ancient walls, modern conversion, warmly artistic décor - and convivial company by the pool or at dinner if you choose


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


At Le Cariol, an ancient charterhouse where Knights Templar took refuge 700 years ago, conviviality is key. Your relaxed and creative Dutch hosts aim to offer a beautiful environment for guests to meet and exchange stories and ideas. The lovely group of ancient buildings and outdoor spaces, each with its own atmosphere, fits this ethos perfectly. Naturally welcoming, Martijn and Irene have a spontaneous curiosity, an effortless art-de-vivre and three young sons. Martijn is an artist, his works inspired by Périgourdine colours, shapes and history, who loves to guide others in their creativity. Or join Irene in yoga by the pool. Your gîte has its own garden and sandpit, a smart modern kitchen with rustic touches, a light and open living room. The owners’ style is a harmonious mix of materials and periods – modern lacquer meets opulent damask. One bathroom is slick and smart, the other has a Roman baths feel with sunken shower and mosaics. Join your hosts and B&Bers for delicious dinner, take a dish to the weekly shared meal, feed on new encounters. Altogether glorious for an outgoing family or group of friends.
