Gite Le Recoux - Charming Dordogne Holiday Cottage in Central Location

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Mouzens, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Quaint stone holiday cottage (gîte) with views and close access to all Dordogne highlights. Totally self-catering. All famous sites within close proximity: prehistoric Lascaux, Lez Eyzies; chateaux Beynac, Castelnaud and Domme; and popular tourist town Sarlat (25 min). You are 3km from the peaceful Dordogne river (the popular lifeguarded beach of Coux is just down the hill), not to mention the surrounding Bergerac wine country. You can reach several popular grottos (caves) from the gîte between 10 and 30 minutes driving, full of history and/or mineral formations.

Interaction with guests
We have a caretaker living nearby who will hand you the keys, and is available for any questions. Owners are available around the clock, and before your trip we love to help you plan your stay: where to roam, what not to miss, and some insights you may not know from the tourist guides. Each guest has a different objective for their vacation--either hiking, gastronomy, historical tours, fishing or kayaking--we enjoy getting to know you and helping you get the most out of your trip. We have been coming to the Dordogne ourselves each year for over 10 years and we are still discovering many hidden treasures. Ask us for our itinerary that we have built, uniquely for our guests, to use directly from the property. We look forward to welcoming you!

3. Explore any of the daily markets in Saint Cyprien, Le Bugue, Sarlat (there are so many!)...Go horseriding, cycling, walking, climbing or caving - or play golf.
4. Visit any of the nearby chateaux: Beynac, Castelnaud, Salignac, Domme--there are so many!
5. Take a drive to Sarlat, La Roque Gageac- often voted France’s prettiest village, cliff-built Rocamadour or Martel
6. Visit la Foret de Singe--the monket forest near Rocamadour
7. Visit a vineyards in Bergerac or Bordeaux

Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Bergerac: 32.0 km
Railway: Le Buisson et Cadouin: 16.0 km
Fly into Bordeaux or Toulouse airports--or even better, the regional airport in Bergerac--then renting a car from any three is the best plan! If you are coming from UK or Europe, Bergerac airport just wonderful, which serves RyanAir, EasyJet, Flybe, and Transavia. These airlines are low cost and give access to any number of locations within Europe. Bergerac airport is only 45 minutes from the property. For car hire at Bergerac, look into Europecar or BUG car rents.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, Horse Riding Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 5.0 km.
