Dog Friendly Gite in the Dordogne, South West France
La Coquille, 45 minutes from Limoges and Perigueux
2 bedrooms, sleeps 2 to 5 people

Le Gîte Bonhur

Situated in the lovely Dordogne countryside with beautiful views, the gite is independent of our house and is ideal as a romantic getaway for a couple and for a family holiday. We welcome dogs and can accommodate one or two.

Gite Bonhur offers a peaceful location only two minutes from the town of La Coquille between Limoges and Perigueux and is set on a quiet lane within the Perigord/Limousin National Park with lovely open views of the rolling countryside and surrounding villages. Paris is roughly 4 hours by car.

There are several yellow route walks situated around the gite that go through the forests to other villages, which are ideal for walking a dog, on/off-road cycling (bicycles available), fishing and for anyone who enjoys wildlife and countryside walks.

Downstairs, the gite has a large lounge with television that has all the free to air channels, DVD and music centre. There is a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and also a shower room with wc.

Upstairs are two large, comfortable bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom with bath/ shower and wc.

The gite has a private, south facing garden, so it gets the sun most of the day. The garden has a lovely view over the countryside and is perfect for a barbecue or a relaxing evening meal.

We live live opposite the gite and will be on hand for any help or advice, but obviously your privacy will be paramount.

The Area

There is a swimming lake within 10 minutes drive from us at Bussière-Galant, which also has crazy golf, velo-rail, fishing, walks and a zip wire across the lake.
The cycling is fantastic on and off road. We cycle every day, so advice on anything you want to know is there, if needed.
There are a number of local fishing lakes and a permit can be purchased very easily in La Coquille.

In the surrounding area there are doctors, dentists, chemists and a couple of amiable bars. There are two restaurants in town, a good quality traditional bakery, butchers, a tabac and a post office. La Coquille also has a fairly large Carrefour express supermarket.
Just outside of the town is an English speaking vet, who is completely used to the travel system for pets.

With an easy drive there are plenty of places to visit, the Grottes de Villars caves and the beautiful town of Brantôme, which is nicknamed the Venice of the Dordogne.
