La Chataigne in Dordogne, a gite in Dordogne and Lot: Swimming Pool

Charming gites with huge child friendly garden and heated fenced pool

La Chataigne is a fabulous 300 year-old gite, which sleeps 6 with comfort, and offers bags of room plus a wealth of original features. The huge lounge features an original chestnut floor, quality furnishings and a wood burner stove. There are UK TV channels, fast reliable wifi and lots of games. There is a separate dining room and a well appointed kitchen featuring part of the original bread oven. The three large bedrooms each have romantic French style beds and one has an en suite bathroom. La Chataigne has a private patio area complete with wooden furniture and BBQ. La Chataigne and La Noisette can be opened up to sleep eleven people in comfort with three bathrooms.
We fell in love with Les Arbres as soon as we discovered it in 2008. Our three gites are full of character, and together with the huge garden and beautiful pool, we could see at once that it would be perfect for family holidays. The gites, garden and pool are all situated on one side of a chemin rurale – a quiet cul de sac. Our home is opposite, so we are close at hand if you need us, but equally you are free to enjoy your holiday in privacy. The gites are stone built in the traditional style and the rural landscape of the Perigord Limousin forms the stunning backdrop. We have made lots of improvements since we bought Les Arbres, including fresh new bathrooms, well equipped kitchens, top quality bed linen and towels, and cosy wood burners for autumn evenings. If you simply want to laze around, our huge garden is fully fenced so the kids can’t escape. The heated swimming pool has a fully approved safety fence and plenty sun loungers. Facing south, it catches the sun all day, and we clean it every morning for super sparkly water. There are swings, a proper boules court, table tennis, kids campfire and badminton. We have a good range of well-maintained bikes, and storage space if you bring your own. The area is fabulous for cycling, with well-maintained roads and a beautiful landscape of hills, forests and lakes. We can provide maps and even arrange a ride with the Piegut Cycle Club, which has up to two outings a week of 50-60km. Set in the Perigord Limousin Regional Nature Park, life here has changed little for centuries and the culture is strongly rural and seasonal. We can tell you about secret and enchanted places, summer night markets, vide-greniers antique markets, plus charming village fetes. Along with quaint villages, historic towns, typical street markets, fairytale chateaux, river and lake canoeing, tree climbing, star gazing, bird and animal spotting, and fabulous local restaurants, you’ll find so much to do that you’ll have to return. Eight years on and having welcomed many visitors, settling here at Les Arbres has been the best decision we have ever made. Over the years we have consistently received wonderful reviews and many of our guests return year after year. This is your chance to experience the France that time forgot and create your own happy holiday memories.
