They have two options, Gîte Monarque which sleeps 8-10 and Gîte Vulcain which sleeps 4-6 they are both on the same plot as is your hosts’ property Simone and Dave.
The gîtes are located in the Correze region of Limousin which is only 3 miles from The Dordogne region with Segur le Chateau less than 10 minutes away by car.
Correze is one of Frances more quiet rural areas with many old churches, castle and villages.
It is an area that allows you to do as much or as little as you please so if peace and quiet is your thing this could be ideal. The area has lakes and rivers to swim in though if you’d rather be on the water than in it then sailing, canoeing, kayaking or fishing are available.
How to get there
Driving to get there is a considerable distance but a rewarding one and if like me you treat the journey as part of the holiday you will enjoy a lot of the countryside that you get to drive through en route.
From Calais it’s just over 450 miles, from Cherbourg it’s 415 and from La Havre 390 miles so it will take at least seven hours regardless of which port you use plus any time you factor in for breaks or stop overs.
Make sure you have all the legal requirements when driving in France. See what you need here.
