Formerly the wine store, it lies in the grounds of the discreet owners’ “chartreuse” circa 1700 and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Perfect for walkers, cyclists and artists, it is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, fields of sunflowers, châteaux, medieval villages and bustling weekly markets. Sample traditional French cuisine at one of the many bistros and French wines at local vineyards.

The place was very clean and spacious and the weather was fantastic. So if you want a quiet relaxing holiday then this is the property for you. June 2012.
  4. Idylic peaceful location, just like home, only warmer! Well placed for visiting the many local attractions. Superb kitchen facilities, the oven with the rotisserie was particularly appreciated. Everything about the accommodation was high quality. The wildlife in the surrounding meadows and woods added to our pleasure. May 2012.
  5. Beautifully converted, finished and furnished spacious gite. Started taking guests in August 2011 and everything is in excellent condition. Very quiet location but convenient for Montignac and exploration of Vezere valley and beyond. No wifi but home cinema being installed. Large supermarket 10 minutes away. Would definitely recommend (and don’t do so often). Pictures on the CCF website do not disappoint. May 2012.
  6. Excellent Gite, owners make you welcome, we loved it. March 2012.
  7. Gorgeous property, well equipped, fantastic location. March 2012.
  8. An idyllic location where the only noise at night was the hooting of owls and the occasional rutting stag!!! No light pollution so the stars were a bonus. Very quiet and restful. Sept 2011.
  9. An excellent property, with excellent kitchen, comfortable beds, two large bathrooms, fantastic swimming pool and immaculate brand new tennis court. Lovely owners on site who were very helpfully, a very beautiful spot in the owners grounds with fruit and nut trees, surrounded by green fields. Supermarket and petrol only a five min drive away. Situated on the river with fantastic canoeing. Lots of things to do in the area. Aug 2011.
  10. The property was all that we had hoped for. The setting so tranquil and relaxing. Ample room for the four of us. Very well equipped. Sept 2011.
  11. The accommodation was quiet, comfortable and very well appointed. Our hosts were friendly and most helpful. They were very eager to please without being intrusive. The overall location was good but the approach road needs some attention. July 2011.
