If you are looking for a restful, peaceful and undemanding holiday, then look no further! Whilst located on the edge of this pretty riverside village, it is on a secluded track and not overlooked. Ideally situated for visiting the 'prettiest villages' of France, messing about in the river or just relaxing in the garden, it is the perfect location. The gite is well-situated in so far as it is on the corner of the Correze, the Lot and the Dordogne. This provides a wealth of things to do and see. Assailing the senses, are many local farmers' markets where you can barbecue the fresh meat you purchase to eat with the newly made bread, delicious sun-warmed strawberries, all washed down with local wines. There are an abundance of the listed 'prettiest villages in France' all around, such as Rocamador, Collonges la Rouge, Turenne and many more. The river provides places to swim, fish or canoe in the clear cool waters. Other activities such as walking and cycling are a joy in such a pretty location. Or for those who just want a total rest, just sitting on the terrace with a good book and a glass of wine you may do a bit of wild life spotting, such as the eagles, kite, pine martens, wild boar, deer, adders, salamanders as well as our more familiar creatures. The only thing that may disturb your peace will be the cry from the local cockrel, the woodpecker's frequent visit to the walnut tree or the cries of victory from the village boulles match. Other places to visit are the dams on the Dordogne, chateaux, caves (some with cave drawings), museums, music festival activities, gardens, places of historical interest, churches and much more; in short, there is something for everyone.
I am Susan and I am a semi-retired English teacher at a high school in the North West of England. Currently I work four days a week and after a busy, noisy and intense school year, I long for the peace and quiet of my idyllic rural getaway.

A lovely little French house well-equipped for a relaxing holiday. Every window has a wonderful view of surrounding countryside and at night the lack of light pollution means you can see the stars whilst listening to the barn owls and the sound of the Dordogne down in the valley. It is a lovely area with many places to visit. Beaulieu is just down the road for shopping/restaurants/cafes. We visited Argentat, Figeac, Aurillac, Collonges and there are many more within reach. It was very hot, and memories of cold wine on the terrace of an evening will see us through the winter.
A stunning location in the village of Brivezac. Stunning views across the valleys surrounded my nature and tranquility. Not far from River Dordogne with canoeing , cycling and walking activities if you want. Car is required for the near by shops and reaching neighbouring town of Beauslieu. Weather was a plus everyday 30c+. We fell in love with the French way of life and would love to return. Friendly neighbours and owner with open channels of communication! Many thanks Susan :)
