About the property

This spacious 3 bedroom Gite borders on the natural reserve of lake Grolhier, set in 10 acres of private wild flower meadows and is ideal for family holidays or an adults only retreat. With views over the private lake from all the bedrooms and the terrace being beside the lake, it's ideal for relaxing, some fishing and bird/wildlife watching.

The swimming pool is in a very private location overlooking the meadows.

We also have a pétanque (Boules), which can be used at any time.

There is plenty to do in the area with local markets, such as Piegut (every Wednesday) and beaches, such as st. Estephe or st. Matthieu. They offer canoeing and pedalo hire.

The area is ideal for riding bikes and walking.

The house is well equipped.

Piegut is about 4km away and offers some restaurants, a bar, boulangerie and boucherie as well as a few other shops.

About Nathan and Anja Kilby

After many years of living and working on several farms we decided to start something of our own. We looked at many properties, but both loved this property for its potential and location. Both our children enjoy roaming in the woods, fishing and swimming in the lake.

We hope you will enjoy the peaceful setting here as much as we do. Nathan and Anja Kilby

Lovely renovation, great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday. Nice and peaceful and comfortable accommodation, lots of space unlike so many. The grounds were amazing with space, a pool, trampoline and toys provided to keep the children happy even when the weather wasn't great. Lots to see if you fancy a little excursion too!

Wonderful Holiday in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in this fabulous Gite. It is located in a beautiful setting, with lovely spacious accommodation. The kids particularly loved the pool & well stocked games room (as did we!!). Made all the more comfortable by our helpful and attentive hosts. Already planning a return trip :-). All in all, a wonderful holiday!!

Home from home but with sun and swimming!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful gite, tastefully renovated with plenty of space inside and out to relax and unwind. The weather wasn't great for the first week so the games room was invaluable and my son is now quite the table tennis player and my daughter has been polishing her babyfoot skills! The pool was amazing and extremely well-kept and the lake provided hours of entertainment. Anja and Nathan go the extra mile to make sure that everything is perfect and we were extremely sad to leave. Safe to say we'll be back! Thanks for everything - it was absolutely amazing.

Great holiday place

  • 5 of 5

Gite de bost was just perfect. The setting is beautiful and relax and the converted barn is very comfortable and clean. The kids made use of the pool and the swing and attempted a little bit of fishing.

The area around Piegut is perfect for a holiday with lots of things to do for the children as well as beautiful walks to be made. I highly recommend staying here for a relaxing and at the same time active holiday.

Thank you Anja and Nathan for looking after us so well!

Pretty French Countryside Gite

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful spot! We had a fabulous holiday with perfect weather (almost too hot!) enjoyed in the French countryside. Thank you so much to our hosts, Anja and Nathan, who were available to assist with anything we needed. What more could you ask for? The barn is well laid out with an idyllic view to wake up to from every bedroom window. Our children loved playing on the swing, in the pool, in the games room, rowing the boat on the lake and having a go at Pétanque. The nearest town Piegut is only a couple of miles away and has a supermarket and an amazing market on Wednesdays for the freshest fruit, vegetables, croissant and even wild boar! Nearby St. Estephe lake is a must for a perfect picnic – it also has a beach, restaurants/cafes and a great 2.5k walk including a little foot ferry that our kids controlled to pull us across the water. There are many activities in the area including zip lining, kayaking, caves, cycling, wine-tasting etc.. or you can simply relax in the ample grounds of the gite. We can't wait to return!

There is lots to see and do in this area.

Brantome is a very attractive town with lots of cafés, restaurants and good shops. It is located on the river Dronne. Canoes can be hired at Brantome for a relaxing paddle along the river. Brantome market is day is Friday.

The caves of villars is only a short distance away from Brantome. It is mostly a natural cave full of stalactites and stalagmites but also has a few small prehistoric drawings.

La Roque Gageac is one of France's most beautiful villages and is about two hours drive from here. It is situated by the river Dordogne.

Why not try the zip wire Perigord Vert Adventure Park in Nontron. It's about 20 minutes from here and great fun for children and adults.

If you are interested in alcoholic drinks, especially Congnac has to make a trip to the famous town. It is about 1.5 hours away.
