Quaint stone holiday cottage (gîte) with views and close access to all Dordogne highlights. Totally self-catering. All famous sites within close proximity: prehistoric Lascaux, Lez Eyzies; chateaux Beynac, Castelnaud and Domme; and popular tourist town Sarlat (25 min). You are 3km from the peaceful Dordogne river (the popular lifeguarded beach of Coux is just down the hill), not to mention the surrounding Bergerac wine country. You can reach several popular grottos (caves) from the gîte between 10 and 30 minutes driving, full of history and/or mineral formations.

Set in the peaceful countryside above the market town of Saint Cyprien (5km), this charming hamlet house offers an abundance of tranquility and simplicity. It is part of an ancient hamlet that has been lovingly maintained so it doesn't feel isolated and lonely, but at the same time, you will feel very private and quiet. There are birds always singing, ample green space around the gîte for kids to play, footpaths for promenades, and two delightful, south-facing terraces for dining al fresco during the long Dordogne summer days or coffee in the morning. Since 2013 we have installed a new, fully-equipped kitchen, remodeled the bathroom and terrace, installed stone flooring, painted the shutters a romantic white, and added lots of cozy touches. In 2017, we have converted the attic to a trendy loft space that has been decorated in an urban style. In the loft, there are two skylights, making it bright and airy. The entire property is 'one with nature', offering comfort and relaxation, affording you a special meditative quality that we all seek during our holidays, but with excellent proximity to the touristic sites. Please be informed: Changeover days are preferred Friday or Sunday (Saturday is possible). This property is completely self-catering. The owners are not on the premises but of course available 24/7. A caretaker is just near the house and available in the case of problems. Please know that there is only one toilet (WC) and one shower room, both of which are downstairs from the bedrooms, which means you must be careful in the night! If you are maximum occupancy with 8 people, the single toilette and shower might be insufficient. The loft space is ideal if a guest should visit for one or two nights. We put the price for a single-family type of rental for that reason. We want you to be comfortable! Please ask if you have some questions!More

Interaction with guestsWe have a caretaker living nearby who will hand you the keys, and is available for any questions. Owners are available around the clock, and before your trip we love to help you plan your stay: where to roam, what not to miss, and some insights you may not know from the tourist guides. Each guest has a different objective for their vacation--either hiking, gastronomy, historical tours, fishing or kayaking--we enjoy getting to know you and helping you get the most out of your trip. We have been coming to the Dordogne ourselves each year for over 10 years and we are still discovering many hidden treasures. Ask us for our itinerary that we have built, uniquely for our guests, to use directly from the property. We look forward to welcoming you!

I was a first timer to Europe and had high expectations. This visit exceeded all of them. I have traveled to Belize, Dominican Republic, Africa and many other destinations and this was, by far, one of the most enjoyable vacations I've ever experienced. A quaint and well kept/maintained home with everything we needed coupled with the most beautiful surroundings made for the perfect vacation. Already planning my return visit.

The Gîte Le Recoux was the perfect place for us—comfortable, well-equipped, great views, quiet! The kids enjoyed the badminton and bocce ball available at the gîte and walking through the little hameau. Such an adorable location. Please be aware the toilet is downstairs from the bedrooms. We have traveled to a lot of areas in France but the Dordogne really amazed us. There is more to do here for families than most places. The owners also told us how to find the neighborhood goat who our kids visited with carrots everyday.

This is a perfect little hide away for a family of 4 just 10 mins north of the River Dordogne. We were given very clear information as to how to find the Gite and found it both very well equipped (Washing Machine, Dishwasher, Coffe Machine - essential) and very clean. The rustic / rural exterior is reflected in characterful internal beams and fireplace but everything else about the property is bang up to date with a small but well equipped Kitchen and modern shower room / wet room. While the internal rooms are by no means huge they are adequate for a family of four (inc. two growing teenage boys) for a week. A particularly nice touch is the balcony that opens up from the master bedroom. You can sit here and sip your coffee while the children sleep on. The view is of the trees and farmland as it disappears down the valley towards the river (not in sight). If we were being really, really picky the fact that the toilet is on the ground floor means the stagger to the loo in the wee small hours requires a night navigation down the stairs. We spent most of our time sat outside on the terrace where we ate all our meals, watched the sun go down and the stars come out. Excellent communication via email prior to and during our stay simply added to the ease of use, though it was the suggested itinerary that we found most useful as it enabled us to enjoy some of the local events as well as planning for trips further afield.

The Gite is beautiful and looks like it is out of a French Countryside book! It was relaxing and close to many castles and amazing towns. My children (ages 5 & 8) loved it and did not want to leave. Everything was clean and comfortable. Deb is amazing and provides tons of information and suggestions on where to visit and explore. Correspondence with her was easy, fast and she is extremely knowledgeable. It was an amazing experience!

Nous avons passé 5 jours dans le gîte avec notre bébé et tout s'est très bien déroulé. Les propriétaires sont très arrangeant et nous ont trouvé une chaise haute. C'était pour nous un dépaysement total et très agréable de rester dans cette maison de charme au coeur de la Dordogne. A l'intérieur tout est prévu : cuisine aménagé avec four, jeux de société, livres, classeur des sorties de la region, etc ... Pour une famille qui cherche le calme et des vacances au goût de local loin des stations touristiques, c'est l'endroit idéal ! Beaucoup de choses à faire et voir dans les environs, même avec un bébé ! Nous recommandons sans hésiter le gîte de Dan et Déborah.

Thank you so much for a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Le Recoux. It was in a perfect location for us to explore the Vezere and Dordogne rivers on the kayaks or to delve into the scenic parts of Beynac and Domme, yet return up the hill to our little home for a BBQ on the terrace. The owners itinerary was excellent, which we did follow on some days, especially the marches nocturne in Audrix. Thank you so much and I'm sure we will be back again!

The owner advised us early on that Gîte Le Recoux was difficult to find. With a GPS that would not play ball we searched unsuccessfully for some time. Although we had a series of photos to guide us and notes, in the end we sought help from the locals. One lovely lady took the photos, signalled follow me and 30 minutes later she found our Gîte. Have a current GPS! The Gîte only recently entered the rental scene and can accommodate a family of four or, in our case, three adults, one in the bunks in the upstairs bedrooms. If your are expecting five star modern fittings, go elsewhere, as only one downstairs toilet might not be acceptable to some. But if you want a real French country experience, away from noisy streets and neighbours, this is the place. Some can find fault with the best accommodations and we had some minor settling in events. But we accepted them as part of the experience and were soon relaxed and enjoying the views from the patio. We were most ably supported by the owner's local contact Claude, an 80 year old gem of a man. No problem could not be solved without his cheery smile. The Gîte is closer to Saint Cyprien than Sarlat and we spent some time in the town at various friendly cafes and the magnificent Sunday markets. We had many day trips to the surrounding country using the extensive and excellent guide provided by the owner well before our trip. In summary, our first visit to France, the Gîte, the friendliness of the Le Recoux and Saint Cyprien locals and the historical sites we visited was an experience that will stay in our minds for a long time.

We spend a very relaxing week in the gorgeous gite with our two girls (8 + 10 years). Sometimes we felt like real Frenchmen in this wonderful fairytale-landscape. We loved the cozy bedrooms upstairs and the nostalgic charm of the living room with the fireplace, the stone walls and the big family-table for games in the evening. I very much enjoyed cooking fresh vegetables and meat from the market in the perfect equipped kitchen – you’ll find everything you need! Of course the Weber-barbecue outside made my husband smile! Therefore we loved to eat under the big tree with the wonderful view into the sunset when everything around is totally quiet except some late birds or a neighbors’ dog. By the way the neighbors are very friendly and if we had a question, Marie José was with us within some minutes (as our French is quite little, it was easier to talk face to face). During the days we discovered the characteristic and interesting cities and villages around. The girls swam in the river and experienced the Gouffre Proumeysac with its fantastic light and the exciting gondola-drive down into the cave (it is worth to do this). Finally not to forget the amount of adventure parks around with climbing courses… they are so much better than in Germany! This nice little gite within this region, so full of wonderful places, will always be a wonderful memory.
