La Cascade is one of three gites sleeping a total of 16 people. The other two gites are no. 151 and 152 on here.
A furnished private terrace and BBQ is located on the sunniest side of the gite, perfect for al fresco dining, then watching the sun set with a glass of wine. There is plenty of sunbathing and relaxing space where you can get tucked in a good book. The three gites share a huge swimming pool which is sure to be popular with children and grown ups alike.
Perfect for a large family, two families or a group of friends traveling together, this gîte has three large bedrooms in total. The master bedroom is on the ground floor with its own shower and toilet and on the first floor there are a further two double rooms arranged as twins.
If your holiday takes you exploring, the Dordogne region hides tiny villages everywhere, tucked between the hills. You can be as active as you like with local cycle paths and walks threading across the picturesque countryside. About 15 mintues away is the recreation lake at St Estephe, which has a swimming beach, lovely walks, boats and a play park for children. Why not grab a meal and a drink at the cafe too. Canoeing is very popular at nearby Montbron where you can hire equipment and chose your route. The river Tardoire weaves between the hidden chateaux, prehistoric grottos, menhirs and watermills, a truly beautiful backdrop to a wonderful day with family and friends.
Exploring the area further afield there is aerial tree climbing with zip wires and much more family fun. Within an hour’s drive there are galleries, cave tours, karting, golf and the magical gardens of Marqueyssac (imagine 150,000 hand-pruned boxwoods), one of the Dordogne’s most famous and beautiful treasures. A ‘must do’ day trip is enchanting Brantome, adorning postcards for years and known as the Venice of the Dordogne, it’s officially one of the most beautiful villages in France.
Around the gite there is plenty for children to explore in the surrounding gardens, meadows and trees where fresh air and fun is guaranteed! Stay here and experience a proper family holiday, relax, explore and enjoy France at it’s best.
We have many wonderful reviews but here is a small selection:
"The Gite is really well equipped and has everything you could possibly need for two weeks of self catering. It has a wonderful patio area, overlooking the woods and the stream, and you can watch the sun setting behind the trees, it's quite hard to believe that you are only a hundred or so yards from the village. A really peaceful and tranquil place to be. All in all, the gite is amazing and it's in a wonderful location with plenty to do - you won't be disappointed."
"It is difficult to describe just how wonderful this place is. The key for me were the gardens. They are not manicured in any way, but the combined effect of the stream and the surrounding ancient woodland makes it an incredibly peaceful place."
"We have just returned from La Maillerie and are already missing it. It is a very special place, so peaceful and such beautiful surroundings. The highlights were the terrace, gardens, waterfall, river and surrounding woods. We saw so much wonderful wildlife, including kingfishers. I highly recommend a visit."
