The
Experience

In a prized area of chåteaux, caves and honey stone villages, 20 minutes from the airport at Bergerac, is a classic 18th-century chartreuse magnificently maintained and in vast gated grounds. Beautiful trees, a wide open sky and views in all directions: such are the first impressions. Enter to find two pristine floors in the north-west corner of the mellow stone complex – compact, comfortable and immaculately restored. You get an open-plan living space with a big coffee table and blue sofas, a lovely new kitchen beyond a great cross beam, tasteful lamps, interesting pictures, a wood-burner and a TV (with French and British channels). Up the twisting stair to charming bedrooms under the roof, fresh and uncluttered, with a super bathroom between them and a walk-in cupboard. You’re given a small private terrace for dining, and use of the owners’ indoor pool – doors glide open to loungers and views, the pool is a beauty and all feels safe and enclosed. There’s a simple restaurant a mile away while civilisation begins in Bergerac and Lalinde – the most seductive of Perigordian towns.

Reviews

We have just returned from a week's stay at Le Girard and already miss the beautiful gite, peaceful surroundings and wonderful area. The gite is homely yet tastefully decorated, our two young children have already asked where our 'holiday house' has gone! The owners are friendly but ensure you have your own privacy on site. The grounds are lovely to walk in and the simple pleasure of just sunbathing and appreciating the setting was wonderful. We would definitely consider returning.
