two of the gites
Dordogne - Montignac - Lascaux IV: these are the only three keywords needed to let out the three fine gites on this estate. They are snapped up for the summer months as this is where tourists - from all over the world - want to be. They come in the summer for the Dordogne (châteaux and forests, rivers and water activities) and the whole year round for the pre-history sites: Lascaux, of course, but all the other ones in the Valley of the Vézère, capital of European pre-history.
It helps, of course, that the gites are stone-built, authentic Perigordine buildings with double-glazing, exposed stonework and oak beams. The exceptional location beside the river Vézère - with no near neighbours - surrounded with walnut orchards and well-tended fields does help too.
The property is founded on an old farm, parts of which date back to mediaeval times. The main house has been transformed into a big gite with 6 bedrooms (sleeps 15) and spacious lounge, dining and kitchen areas. A number of the bedrooms are en-suite which means that they can be used as B&B rooms in the low season.
Across the courtyard we find gite n°2 which boasts 4 bedrooms (one of which is en-suite) and a superb dining/lounge space on the ground floor. This gite sleeps 8 guests comfortably.
Gite n°3 is next to this: again, in an independent house, with views over the river and the orchards. It has two bedrooms and is often used just for couple out of season.
The owners live in a dinky little cottage outside of the main farmstead. It's a very old building which has been renovated with taste and style into a cosy dwelling: large living space downsttairs and two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Wood-burning stove.
If that was all most people would be happy. But there is more. Three vast barns - two of which are open on one side and serve as alfresco dining spaces, ping-pong areas or wine-tasting workshops. The third barn is as yet undeveloped but represents over 400m² of living space - enough to put in another 3 or 4 gites. Finally, there is a little Bergerie which is half Wendy-House, half teenager hideaway.
We haven't even touched on the marvellous riverside location - 500 metres or so of prime banks for fishing - the orchard with walnut, cherry, apple, persimmon and quince trees or the pool (fenced and alarmed in conformity with the law).
All the ingredients are here: the location, the gites, the owners' house, the pool, the extensive estate (6 hectares) and the development potential. The current owners run a tight ship and make sure that the premises are well maintained and in perfect shape to receive guests ... at any time of year. We would suggest that buyers continue to run it as it is for a year or so before turning their hand to developing some of the out-buildings. The close proximity to the Lascaux caves means that "pre-history holidays" in the off-season could be sold to discerning guests from all over the world. An excellent business and a good investment. Highly recommended.

The charm of the region lies in the unspoilt nature of the countryside, the picture-perfect villages and a rich heritage of churches, abbeys and chateaux. Above all, Dordogne is home to two (at least) of the most remarkable prehistoric sites in Europe: Lascaux and Font de Gaume.
The region south of the Dordogne river is carpeted with vast forests of oak punctuated with fields and stone walls. Dwellings tend to be grouped in fortified villages and bastide towns with high walls and narrow mediaeval streets.
North of the Dordogne river the landscape becomes wilder with rivers cutting deep gorges through the honey-coloured limestone. In the region - the Golden triangle - between Dordogne and Vézère river valleys - one finds the principal pre-history sites of the Perigord
Sarlat is the uncrowned capital of the Dordogne: all roads lead to this uniformly lovely town with its honey-coloured stone houses and public buildings, its museums, galleries and boutiques, its cafés, restaurants and - especially - its weekly market.
Bergerac is the southern capital with its prestiguous vineyards - Montbazillac and Saussignac - a continuation of the more famous St Emilion vines to the west.
Winters can be cold but summers are inevitably hot and rain-free.
