The Owner Recommends

Markets, Restaurants, French coffee

Eymet is a really lovely village with its medieval arcades on the square. You have to go to the market, set on the square each Thursday morning since 1270!
Then, you will enjoy the different restaurants of the village. Gastronomics, Pizza, Chinese, Peruvien, traditionnal... And also the coffees and their terrace to taste coffee or local wines.

Do not miss to go to Issigeac market on Sunday morning. Other beautiful village at 20 km far from us. Nice place to begin your holidays with fresh fruits and vegetables or local produces.

You like the history? The Dordogne is the best place to discover several castles. Bridoire and Monbazillac are the closest ones but there are hundred others close to us. Then, all the medieval villages, the beautiful gardens, the famous caves as Lascaux or Le Thot...

You like the sports. You could canoeing very quietly in Eymet or Allemans du Dropt (6 km). Or in the wild Perigord on the rivers Dordogne or Vezere. Golf clubs are close to us. The Golf des Vigiers is really famous and just at 15 km. Lovely place to stay for a gastronomic supper as well.

We are close to the beautiful town of Bordeaux (100 km) and the famous places like St Emilion for the wine or Sarlat for the caves and the beautiful houses.

We had a wonderful 2-month stay at Gite Des Chenes and could not have chosen a better place to stay for its location, peace and tranquility.

A well equipped and very spacious gite full of French style in a peaceful location yet only 3km from the lively bastide town of Eymet with restaurants and bars.

Wonderful owners who are very welcoming and on hand only if needed.

The secluded garden is interesting and enclosed, perfect if you have a dog. We enjoyed swimming and cooling off in our own private pool which is a 'must' for those hot days and very relaxing.

Gite Des Chenes is in an excellent location to explore the delights of the Dordogne such as Monpazier, Sarlat and much more. Also, Bergerac and her airport are only a 20 minute drive.

In every respect, we would highly recommend Gite Des Chenes for a wonderful French holiday experience.
