"Just what was required! Calm and Peace! Lovely spacious gite with everything you need and more.  A lovely spot to unwind and explore."

General Description

Set in 9 acres of tranquil garden and fields, the gite at Les Chambons (Le Petit Chambon) is a beautiful, ground floor, large (100 sq metre), stone gite in a courtyard setting with  8 x 4 metre swimming pool. 

When renovated the gite was designed with disabled guests in mind and all rooms are wheelchair friendly including the bathroom facilities - please contact us for more details.

Situated between the small sleepy village of Gabillou and the hamlet of Pauliac in the peaceful countryside of the Perigord Noir, Le Petit Chambon provides an ideal base from which to visit the many attractions of the Dordogne e.g. Hautefort, Sarlat, the Lascaux caves and lots more.  

The gite was fully renovated 2 years ago and is tiled throughout with great views onto the courtyard.  The lounge is spacious with a large wood burner and fully equipped "cuisine americane".  If you fancy trying a few new recipes whilst you are here we are happy to provide additional equipment, herbs and spices, or if you just want to relax and eat out you can visit one of local restaurants which are a short drive away . 

The bedroom is light and airy and can be set up with either a double bed plus an additional single or if you and your friends are travelling together, 3 singles.

The gite has a spacious "wet room" style shower and wc, plus a separate wc and basin.  There is also a laundry room with washing machine.

Bedlinen and towels are all provided and changed  weekly including pool towels (we don't want you to have to add extra luggage just to pack towels!).  Relax around the pool, read a book sitting at the pretty blue table and chairs in the courtyard or take a deckchair and find a shady spot in the garden.

There is ample private parking near to the gite.   We have been growing our own vegetables for a couple of years now - if we have another great "veg year" then you are welcome to try some of them out in your cooking.  There also is an ample supply of books and dvd's.
