The Experience

An upside down house with a very private feel: the owners are on site but looking the other way and there are no other guests. You have the run of the swimming pool with wooden deck and loungers in the pretty garden surrounded by mature trees. On less than sunny days use the large play barn for ping pong, a reading corner full of books, a comfy seating area and doors which bring the outside in.

Hire bikes (or bring your own) and head off into La Forêt de la Double or walk along trails through peaceful countryside. Check Margaret’s information board for restaurant recommendations: you’ll find basics for cooking and a welcome hamper in the sociable open-plan kitchen with a bottle of wine and local produce; stock up in Le Pizou, ten minutes by car.

Fire up the barbecue on your south facing terrace, open a bottle of local wine and let the children have (yet another) swim or play a game of football in the field. This is a quiet and safe place.

We had a wonderful stay at Gite le Bost with our two young children. A beautiful, peaceful setting surrounded by the forests of the Perigord but with great markets an easy drive away. A paradise for children with a fantastic heated pool and tons of games and activities to play in the spacious garden and barn. Warm and friendly welcome from the hosts Margaret and Rod who have made this a very special place to stay.

Daniel, Buckingham

It has been a real pleasure to spend almost à week at gite le bost. The gite is perfect for familly of 4. You will relax into the beautiful garden and pool during your Kids will enjoy the paradise for Kids done by Margaret and Rod.

Emmanuel, Lyon

I'd imagine an idyllic day walking or cycling through the countryside, lazing by the pool, soaking up the silence, with a table tennis championship and petanque competition in the evening. And if it's too warm or too wet, escaping to the barn to play games and chill out. Perfect family times.

The neighbourhood

You're in a very rural spot, deep in the Périgord Blanc. Cycling or walking in the forest here is a joy. You can hire a canoe and take a trip down the river Isle or visit historical towns for superb architecture and authentic markets. You're just 15 mins from the towns of Montpon-Ménestérol and La Roche-Chalais, and just over an hour to Bordeaux and Bergerac.

Local points of interest from Margaret & Rod Thorpe

  • This is a great place to cycle from - we can give you details of a firm that delivers and collects bikes right to our door, or you can bring your own. There is a secure bike shed available for your use.
  • The local area offers an array of interesting towns and villages, with bars, restaurants and weekly markets to explore. We'll be pleased to share our recommendations with you.


Margaret & Rod Thorpe

Margaret (a retired teacher) and Rod (an engineer) live on site and you will see them from time to time - they often ask guests over for an apero on their first evening and if you book in advance Margaret might cook supper for you. But mostly they'll leave you to get on with your holiday unless you need anything. If bridges are your thing ask Rod about Eiffel's bridges in the area.
