The Gite is one of three self-contained renovated buildings on the property (see http://www.sabbaticalhomes.com/OfferedDetails.aspx?id=50283 for the main house, 41014 for the Sechoir). The property has a tranquil, sunny enclosed garden and swimming pool with deck. Individual buildings are cosy enough for one or two, but can accommodate up to 17-20 in three buildings (see http://esparoutis.com for full details, up-to-date availability and combined rental rates).
It is located in a tiny rural hamlet (7 properties) a short walk from the village of St Cybranet.
Main floor: lounge (35sq.m.) well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fireplace, small sunny dining room, master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet;
Upstairs: double bedroom, ensuite bathroom with full bath/shower over and toilet;
Garden level: double bedroom, ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet.
The house is cool in summer thanks to the 70cm stone walls, with a grand fireplace and heaters in all bedrooms for colder months.
Wireless ADSL, desk & office chair. Printer/scanner/copier and widescreen LCD on request.
There are herbs, chillies and some strawberries in the garden, a plum tree and a fig tree in the field (plums in July, figs in autumn, if the birds don't get them first), chestnuts in the woods (autumn, particularly north of the Dordogne river), and all the walnuts you can eat (and more) at any time of year (they keep for a couple of years) from our own walnut trees! Help with the harvest if you are here in October!
Esparoutis is a tiny hamlet of traditional stone houses - 7 properties, mostly built in the 18th century - nestling in the Ceou Valley (one of the least polluted streams in the area). It's up a lane from a minor road and easily accessible, a short walk or flat bike ride to shops (St Cybranet 1km or Castelnaud 2.5km) and 4km (not flat!) from the busy village of Cenac (wide range of services).
This section of the Dordogne River (2.5 km away) is called the Vallee des Cinq Chateaux and is probably the most beautiful part, with the postcard-perfect villages of Domme (8km), Beynac and La Roque Gageac (6km) and the castles of Castelnaud, Fayrac, Les Milandes, Lacoste and the gardens of Marqueyssac and L'Albarede all within 5km. Sarlat is 15 minutes away, and many major sites - Les Eyzies, Vezere Valley, cave paintings, and many more chateaux - are within half an hour.
