Les Gîtes Trépart
Both gites have been restored out of the former stables and wine cave, set independently in the grounds of the main house, beside the River Cole. Terraces overlook the garden and river; a perfect place for breakfast. The cottages have exclusive use of the pool and the pool is fenced for the safety of young children. Local activities include canoeing on the river, cycling (mountain bikes and canoes can be provided) and tennis courts in the village of St-Pierre-de-Côle, where you will find the baker, a corner shop, post office and restaurant. We have 2 km of private riverbank to fish from (mainly trout) and canoes.
We are just outside St-Pierre-de-Côle, between Brantôme and St-Jean-de-Côle. Thiviers is only 10 minutes drive away. Other places of interest are Perigueux, which is a wonderfully cosmopolitan city, the prehistoric caves at Villars and the array of markets held in local villages. Bergerac, an hour from here, makes a great day out to visit the vineyards. Our nearest airports are Limoges, Bergerac and Angouleme.
Both L’Ecurie and Le Chai are independent of one another and have been comfortably furnished with country furniture and fabrics we have found locally. They each have large, open plan living rooms with sofas and chairs, television and DVD, a dining area and a fully equipped corner kitchen, which includes a dishwasher and washing machine, a fridge/freezer, oven and hob, microwave, coffee maker, kettle and toaster. There is an undercover parking area for up to three cars.
Le Chai has 4 bedrooms in total, sleeping up to 8 people in two double rooms, each with en suite shower rooms and two twin rooms, which share a bathroom. The whole of the first floor has chestnut flooring. The bedrooms are all open up to the roof, giving a sense of space and showing the beams to their best advantage. The windows overlook the River Cole to the north and the pool and garden to the south. The bathroom and shower rooms are tastefully furnished in modern design.
L'Ecurie has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 guests in one double bedroom with an en suite shower room, another double bedroom and a twin room, which share a bathroom.
Downstairs the main open plan living room has windows leading onto a terrace with garden furniture, overlooking the river. The corner kitchen has fitted units in oak and is fully equipped with a dishwasher, gas oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine. The dining table seats 6 to 8.
On the south side of the house, you will find the swimming pool, fenced and surrounded by its own garden, mostly laid to lawn with a children’s swing set and other lawn games available.
We have several three-man canoes for hire here and provide life vests for children. It is also possible to hire canoes in nearby Brantôme, if you wish to venture further down river. Tennis is available in St-Pierre-de-Côle on the village court. We also have bikes for hire, but do not provide children’s' bikes, but these can be hired in Brantôme. For those who enjoy fishing we have 2 km of riverbank on which to indulge your passion.
The Perigord Vert is green by name and by nature. It is a haven for wildlife from wild boar to deer. We are located in an area rich in local produce, foie gras, truffles, wine of course, various duck dishes and fraise de bois (wild strawberries). We are blessed with many restaurants in the area, a few being extremely notable. Le Moulin de L'Abbaye, Le Moulin de Roc, Le Chabrol, Le Table de Pougaud, to name but a few. Children are always welcome in restaurants and most provide a children’s menu.
