Stayed at La Maillerie over the May bank holiday in gite La Cascade. I was not disappointed!
The location is stunning and set in the picturesque village of Busseroles.The waterfall is a captivating backdrop and the river weaves around the gites and is lined by beautiful Irises.Its hard to put the camera down! The welcome from the gite owners was warm and friendly, they live onsite, so nearby if you needed any help.
The gite has lots of character and period features and is well equiped with everything you might need.Comfy beds decent shower and all mod cons.There is a large balcony that overlooks the waterfall, perfect for sitting out with a glass of wine or having a BBQ.
There are woods behind the gite to explore and lots of interesting walks in every direction.The village has a great restaurant- they were having a Paella and concert evening while I was there, a bakery selling fresh out of the oven baguettes and a pretty park with a lake and tennis courts.
The weather was typical of a bank holiday so I didnt try out the pool but it was a good size, looked newly built and was positioned just up the hill so you have a relaxing view of the scenery all around.There is lots to do in the area - cycling, watersports, markets or have a drive down to Bergerac wine country.
Can't wait to return for a longer break.
