Thiviers, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Nestled in a beautiful rustic setting 2kms to the north of the picturesque Dordogne village of St Sulpice
d'Excideuil, this purpose-designed accommodation is a restful haven of tranquility and calm. The
gite offers a harmonious combination of deluxe modern fittings set in a rustic stone and oak building
- the best of both worlds. After a lovely day enjoying the tourist sites of the beautiful Perigord
Vert region, you can take an aperitif on the sun-drenched terrace or enjoy a cooling dip in the 45m2 pool only shared with owners and our gite 2. Designed to accommodate 4 people, the gite comprises two bedrooms (one double

We had a wonderful time at the B&B at Gite le Maine d'Autana. Great new room, relaxing shower and bed. Especially the quietness at night was very welcome. Furthermore the garden is lovely and the breakfast was superb.

Management response:

Thank you Paul! It was a pleasure meeting you two. All the best and hope to see you again this way. MJ

We have just returned from a wonderful week spent at this property. The owners, Maria and Paul (who are S. American and English, so therefore no language barriers) could not have made our stay more welcoming. Our son, aged 5 and daughter, aged 11, absolutely loved the pool and our son particularly loved helping Maria to shower the ducks and...

It proves that the passion and love that is put into our Gite Le Maine d'Autana is reached by people like you that choose to stay here!

About the neighborhood
The area is full of pleasant surprises. An almost untouched landscape unveils wherever one decides to glance. One can imagine and re-live prehistoric times through the many cave sites and museums that put in value Dordogne's assets. The very famous Lascaux is less than an hours drive.<BR>You can find a variety of activities catered to all tastes. The Floralis plant and flower show in May in St. Jean de Cole for example is one of the best kept secrets for visiting outside the summer season.<BR>For food and wine lovers, this is culinary paradise!
