The gites are housed in the converted 19th-century barn alongside the owners’ deeply rural Dordogne home. Each has its own path to the sunny shared pool and its own pool furniture but you also have private decking for al fresco meals. Indoors you’ll find much rusticity in old beams, stone and brick alongside beautiful beds with cashmere-filled sprung mattresses.
It’s a sustainable sort of place too: solar panels heat water, cleaning products are eco, plastic is discouraged. The setting is absolutely lovely so take time to stand and stare at the stars, listen to the birds, explore the surrounding forest and visit Périgord’s markets and castles; ask Annette about their yoga and pilates wellness courses too.
Your welcome hamper bulges with red wine and rosé, salads, eggs, paté and cheeses, homemade cake and fruit, bread and croissants. You’ll also find all the basics for cooking and if you bring your dog they get treats too.
