Le gîte de Pereyroux- Detailed description
Your home from home in the beautiful Dordogne Valley
Le gîte de Pereyroux is set on the edge of a small village called Masclat and is within walking distance of 2 restaurant / bars which often have live music in the summer season.
For a wide variety of shops, it’s a 5-minute drive to the village of St Julien de Lampon where you’ll find a butcher, baker, grocery, pharmacy and a fabulous pizza restaurant / bar.
St Julien is also where you can pick up a canoe and sail downstream for the day, exploring the stunning Dordogne river, spotting chateaux on your way, and stopping for lunch in one of the many pretty towns along the way… The river is wide and lazy in the summer, so is suitable for the whole family – we even take our dog with us!
Garden oasis with private heated pool
The gîte is set within a large fully enclosed garden complete with its own private heated swimming pool and fabulous pool house. There are no near neighbours and you can feel the peace and quiet of the countryside all around you. We are dog friendly and welcome your well-behaved dogs to join you on holiday.
The pool house is equipped with a lovely day bed and coffee table, where you can relax with a book whilst keeping an eye on the family in the pool. And along with a dining table and chairs there is a handy fridge and large armoire so that you can stock up and spend the entire day down by the pool if you so wish!
As evening arrives, the pool house is lit by fairy lights, lending a more romantic air to your evening swim, aperitif or barbeque.
Comfortable and homely interior
Inside the gîte, you’ll find a home from home, with a well-equipped kitchen/diner including full oven and hob, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer, as well as plenty of pots and pans should feel like cooking up a storm with the fresh local ingredients you bought at the local markets…
The salon has plenty of space and entertainment for the whole family; with 3 comfy sofas, a 50” smart TV (including British terrestrial channels), a Bluetooth speaker, as well as an old school DVD player, a good selection of films, and plenty of books and board games too.
The salon has French doors onto the rose garden, which has a dining table and chairs overlooking peaceful fields and trees, there’s always plenty of birdsong, and if you’re lucky you may spot some deer or wild boar as the sun goes down. As there is little light pollution here, the night sky is perfect for stargazing.
Adjacent to the rose garden is the private petanque pitch (boules provided) where you and your family and friends can enjoy some pre or post dinner competitive spirit!
Le gîte de Pereyroux has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, downstairs there is a double bedroom with an en-suite wet room. Upstairs the bedrooms have lovely high ceilings, adding to the sense of space: the master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and en-suite shower room; and the two twin rooms share the main bathroom.
Explore the beautiful departments of the Dordogne and the Lot
This area of the Lot/ Dordogne is a joy to explore, whether by foot, bicycle or by car. The lush green rolling countryside is studded with lakes and hills, as well as many underground caves where you can wonder at the natural cave formations and early human art. There are plentiful gardens, animal parks, kids adventure forests and chateaux to visit within a 30-minute drive of the gîte. Get some ideas on the 'What to do and see' page.
