5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a fantastic 7 days in this gite. The village is quiet (and seems mainly to consist of ex pats!). The gite itself is beautiful, fantastically well furnished, and is a joy to live in - a true home from home. The swimming pool is excellent, although the pool heating only takes the edge off on cold days ( we had a rather cold week). I would love to stay here again. My only 2 negative points are that there is no boulangerie in the village - the nearest one is a 10 minute drive, and the gite is unsuitable for people who struggle with stairs, but that's it. It's absolutely idyllic, and we had a fantastic holiday - thank you! more

St. Jory is a lovely, quiet and crime free hamlet situated on a hill top with the traditional Chateau.
The Gite itself is well equipped, spacious, clean and tidy. It has views over the surrounding wooded valley to the south, and is in a good location for touring round the areas many interesting sites.
We would definitely stay there again.
