Property description

La Blanquette Gites and Glamping consists of three beautiful gites, two luxury bell tents, and a vintage caravan located just 5km outside of Sarlat-La-Caneda in a location which combines the best of both worlds - peaceful rural countryside and bustling town life.

Vine and Grape Cottage are situated one above the other and both have separate entrances and separate outside areas. Le Petit Gite is a detached gite with it's own garden. The tents (Chene Vert and Truffe Noire) and the caravan (Chestnut) are nestled within our 12 acres of woodland.

The downstairs gite (Vine Cottage) can sleep 3 people and the upstairs gite (Grape Cottage) can sleep up to 4. Le Petit Gite can sleep 2. The tents can sleep up to 4 people in each and Chestnut can sleep 2.

Vine Cottage has a king size bed (5ft wide) in the bedroom and a single sofa bed in the living room. The bathroom is accessed via the bedroom.

Grape Cottage has a super-king size bed (6ft wide) in the bedroom and a double sofa bed in the living room.

Le Petit Gite has a double bed and a spacious en suite shower room.

Each of the tents has a proper bed (double in Chene Vert and king size in Truffe Noire) with a super comfy mattress and two 3ft futons with extra thick futon mattresses.

Our accommodation can be rented together or separately. By renting them together parties of friends and/or family can combine close proximity with privacy.

The gites are finished to a high standard. They are modern and comfortable and will provide everything required for a fantastic holiday in this beautiful part of France.

The gites have comfortable bedrooms, modern bathrooms and a comfortable lounges with a flat screen TV with satellite television channels and a DVD player. There are dining areas in all gites. The kitchens are well equipped and there are washing machines in Grape and Vine and Le Petit Gite and the glamping has the use of a shared washing machine.

Free WiFi can be accessed throughout the grounds.

The spacious tents are great quality and provide luxury canvas accommodation, they have their own kitchen huts with a gas hob and grill and outside dining area complete with a barbecue.

Chestnut consists of a refurbished vintage 1974 Castleton caravan alongside a cabin built from timber from our own woodlands, that houses a large shower room and kitchen/seating area.

A welcome hamper is provided in the gites and glamping for your arrival. A typical hamper contains a bottle of local wine, bread, cheese, butter, milk, coffee and biscuits. Contents may vary.

There are two restaurants, a farm shop and an organic grocery store within walking distance.

La Blanquette is a place that everybody can enjoy no matter what you are looking for in your holiday; the location is rural while at the same time the medieval town of sarlat with its ample amenities and numerous attractions can be reached in the car within a few minutes or a longer downhill walk.

There is plenty of parking for the gites and glamping.

Vine Cottage and Le Petit Gite has a private fenced off garden and Grape Cottage has a private treetop terrace with stunning views over the valley towards Domme.

There is a large shared swimming pool (open May - September weather dependant) with Roman steps and sunbathing areas nestled into the 12 acres of grounds complete with winding woodland walks that are waiting to be explored.

For those of you looking for exciting night life and fine dining Sarlat has some fantastic restaurants and bars to offer, some of the best in Perigord Nord in fact. For those looking for quieter nightlife both the gites and the tents have BBQs to enable you to enjoy al fresco dining and the well equipped kitchens contain all you need to prepare a six course banquet or a simple G&T!

Ideally situated in a tranquil hamlet in the heart of the Dordogne region, the property is surrounded by countryside walks and bike trails and has the advantage of stunning valley and woodland views. Although La Blanquette Gites is set in a rural location they are only a few minutes drive away from beautiful market towns and villages, historical sites, the Dordogne River and many other areas of interest.

La Blanquette Gites & Glamping is situated in the rural hamlet of Le Cambord, just 7km outside of Sarlat-La-Caneda.

Sarlat is a few kilometres north of the River Dordogne and is a beautiful medieval town that developed around a large Benedictine abbey of Carolingian origin.

Because modern history has largely passed it by, Sarlat has remained preserved and one of the towns most representative of 14th century France. It owes its current status on France's Tentative List for future nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage site to the enthusiasm of writer, resistance fighter and politician André Malraux, who, as Minister of Culture (1960–1969), restored the town and many other sites of historic significance throughout France. The centre of the old town consists of impeccably restored stone buildings and is largely car-free.

Sarlat is a pleasure to walk around, especially during the spring and autumn, or early in the morning. If you can catch the early morning sunshine on the yellow sandstone buildings, so much the better. Before setting off for your walk around Sarlat, visit the tourist office which can provide a suggested walking tour to take in the key attractions.The tourist information office is near to the cathedral.

Sarlat has many many restaurants, bars and cafes and one of the many joys of staying near Sarlat is discovering them!
