Gourdonette is a lovely holiday hous set in a huge garden close to the center of Gourdon where you have many terrasses, restaurants, shops and such a cosy week market!
Gourdonette has its own private swimming pool, garden and terrasses around the house, so you can always sit in the shade or in the sun. The swimming pool (with security deck) is in full sun all day and surrounded by a large terrace with sunbeds and parasols, perfect for relaxing at the pool. Only 500 m from the lovely medieval town of Gourdon.
Small French kitchen with new appliances, the living room has a huge library with a collection of old books (just to look at as it is a collection...). It is a cosy, authentic living room. Next to the living room there is a covered veranda where you can sit when the weather may be a bit less attractive. There are 3 bedrooms of which two have a double bed and one has 2 bunk beds. The bathroom has a shower, washbasin and toilet.
Once you are in the gated garden you will find lots of space in front of the house behind and on both sides. The location is quiet but still it is so ideal as you are walking space to the town of Gourdon (no nuisance at the house of cars as the house is in a quiet street). You will find lawn areas where there is garden furniture and a barbeque.
Gourdon is situated in the beautiful Lot/Dordogne region of South West France. Gourdon, capital of the Bouriane, is a small picturesque town with many fascinating side streets leading up to the church and the "Table d'Orientation" which has a stunning 360 degree view over the Bouriane countryside. It has a history dating back to medieval time. On the circular route around the town you will find a variety of excellent restaurants and pavement cafe bars where you can sit and watch the world go by. There are also several supermarkets and boulangeries selling delicious pastries, breads and croissants. The Tuesday and Saturday markets sell local produce. On the outskirts of the town there are 2 lakes in a beautiful setting.
This beautiful area has an abundance of places to visit on roads that are a pleasure to drive along at any time of the year. There are also many activities to enjoy such as canoeing on the Dordogne river (8kms), hot air ballooning (20kms), lake swimming and fishing (1km), 18 hole golf course (17kms) and horse riding locally. Rocamadour (one of the most visited places in France), Sarlat and the "Valley of the Chateaux" are all within easy reach, as are the vineyards at Cahors where you can sample the excellent wines of the Lot. Of course, if you prefer, you can just sit by the pool and soak up the sun or relax under the trees with a book.
