Gite Estelle with its blue Provence shutters, is a charming property with its own private garden and terrace. Estelle is set within a small private historic hamlet which consists of one other Gite, about 25m away, two barns and two ancient stone cottages.
Estelle is approached along a parasol pine tree lined drive, past Gite Delphine and into a courtyard surrounded with the old stone buildings. It would be difficult not to be enchanted.
Estelle has a large fully fitted kitchen, including a dishwasher, with a generous table easily seating 6 and an original fireplace. The kitchen leads directly onto the terrace perfect for al fresco dining and relaxing. There is a separate cosy living room with 3 seater settee and comfy chair.
The two bedrooms are situated on the ground floor, one has a kingsize bed and the other can be configured as either a twin or superking room. There is a good sized shared bathroom with an over bath shower.
The pool area is nestled at the lower part of the property and is accessed via private stone steps from the garden.The large 10x5m heated pool has a lovely sun drenched terrace.
Outside you will also find the laundry room which includes a washing machine, tumble dryer, clothes airers and a selection of books and DVDs for you to enjoy during your stay.
Travel cots are available upon request.
Estelle is completely private in her own right however, should you wish to holiday with two parties or a larger family, please look at our other gite - Gite Delphine.
If you want a break from relaxing by the pool or exploring the grounds at La Terrisse, there are plenty of things to do in the local area:
* 'Parc en Ciel' is about 8km away from the property and is a fantastic aerial assault course, suitable for all ages and in a lovely wooded valley with gorgeous pool area making a great day out ).
* There are many companies that offer canoeing or boat hire down the beautiful Dordogne or Lot rivers. You can choose the distance you cover and stop off to visit villages or picnic along the way.
* The region is rich in history and has numerous castles and bastide (walled) towns to visit. We are particularly fond of Monpazier and Monflanquin (about 20km away), which are beautiful towns with craft and antique shops and plenty of excellent cafes and restaurants. Chateau Bonaguil is 8 km away from the property and is well worth a visit (). We also love the much smaller chateau at Gavaudun, with it's access staircase cut into the rock (6km away).
* In the summer months on most evenings you can find a local village fete where you can mix with the locals and enjoy regional food and wine.
* The prehistoric sites of the Dordogne, such as the troglodyte village at Roque Saint-Christophe () and caves at Lascaux are within easy reach.
