The Gîtes La Source estate extends over a 6-hectare site of meadows and woods, an old Périgord farmhouse built with traditional stones from the country.

This green and peaceful setting will allow you both to take advantage of the infrastructures offered on site and to discover the activities of the region: prehistoric sites unique in the world, 1001 Castles, exceptional caves and pits, remarkable gardens, visit of the most beautiful villages of France,… without forgetting the gastronomy… hiking in the forest, bike rides, outings in canoes, in the trees, in the air (hot-air balloon) or even in caving.

The town of Saint-Geniès is 2.5 km away and offers all local shops (bakery, grocery store, butcher, bar and restaurants).
