Located in the Dordogne, in the heart of the Golden Triangle of the Périgord Noir, the property stands out for its location. It is at the centre of all tourist and cultural activities, midway between Lascaux and Sarlat (12 km).
The town of Saint-Geniès, 2.5 km away, offers all the shops nearby (bakery, grocery store, butcher shop, bar and restaurants).
The property is a former Périgourdine farmhouse built of the country’s traditional stones and stretches over 5.5 hectares of meadow and wood. A setting of greenery and calm close to the many tourist sites of the region.
7 lodgings have been arranged in the old outbuildings of the farm. Fully equipped, comfortable and spacious, all have a private outdoor space.


You will also have many common areas:
– A large 12*6 pool and 3*3 paddling pool
– A large landscaped garden with a football cage, giant trampoline, swings, petanque field and hammocks scattered across nature
– A barn converted into a recreation area for children and adults (ping-pong, reading area)
– A pen for our animals Berta and Domino (our goats) and hens (for fresh eggs).


“Breakfast” baskets (to be taken in the Gîtes), and “Dinner” baskets are offered on request.
In high season, a large barbecue is offered to all our guests on Mondays and Fridays.


Les Gîtes La Source is above all an atmosphere of conviviality and sharing.
And at home, no extra benefits to pay! The rental of the Gîtes includes bed linen and towels, cleaning at the end of the stay, taxes, electricity and heating.

Region

Périgord Noir, part of the ‘departement’ Dordogne, owes its name to the many oak trees and truffles that can be found there.

The area is situated in between the ‘Dordogne’ and the ‘Vézère’, two rivers meandering through beautiful little medieval towns, villages and castles, where in summer people canoe and fish. It is an ancient area with many prehistoric caves, some of which have fine examples of well preserved prehistoric paintings and sculptures.

The local cuisine is mainly known for its “Foie Gras”,
truffles, walnuts, Monbazillac (sweet white wine), mushrooms, duck- and goose-liver pies and fresh river fish.

St-Geniès is at about 7.5 miles from Sarlat and Montignac (Lascaux) and 12.5 miles from Les Eyzies. In the little village there is a baker, butcher, grocery, restaurant and a local tennis court. Every Sunday you can visit a little market where regional products are sold (mainly food). “La Source” is some 2 miles from the village.

In the vicinity of St-Geniès you can enjoy many activities: golf, horse-riding, walking, canoeing etc.
