These pages give you details about our gite including rental charges and availability.

Les Fontenelles is an old farmhouse situated in the Dordogne department of France on the border between the departments of Dordogne and Lot et Garonne.

The exterior staircase and entrance

The entrance to our gite is from a raised terrace   It is completely self contained with it's own garden and parking.

We have created a place where you can relax, take life at your own pace and enjoy the ambience of this part of France.   The farmhouse is set in about a hectare of park and garden, surrounded by unspoilt countryside.

The gite is ideally suited to couples and families and is let for various length breaks.    As well as holiday accommodation, our discounts for extended stays, make it ideal to use as a base whilst searching for that very special property to buy.

We can help you with your leisure break by augmenting your rental with such services as free transfers between the gite and Bergerac Airport, collection of groceries, recommendations and advice on local restaurants and attractions, arranging wine tastings at local vineyards and for those seeking to buy a place of their own, we can arrange introductions to local Estate Agents and even some personal insights into the whole process.

Or simply book one of our range of activities along with your accomodation.   These activities range from things like wine tasting sessions to Conversational French Courses.

The spacious fitted kitchen

Gite Les Fontenelles

The gite is accessed by a short exterior staircase from it's own garden and parking. There is a raised terrace at the entrance.    The staircase probably makes it unsuitable for the infirm or the very young.   The gite occupies about 200 square metres and comprises a large, open plan lounge and dining area, fully fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet.    The entire gite is situated on the first floor with exposed beams and roof trusses.

Outside, the gite has a dedicated garden with it's own swimming pool and sun deck, barbecue and garden furniture alongside your private parking area. The raised terrace also has furniture.

A small welcome pack of essential groceries will be provided for your arrival.   We can make arrangements to obtain further groceries for you if you wish.   Included in the rental price is electricity, gas, bed linen and towels.

Les Fontenelles is situated only about 15Kms from Bergerac Airport with direct flights from various cities in the UK.   If you wish, we can arrange to collect you from the airport, at the start of your holiday and also to take you back to the airport to meet your homeward flight.   We should point out, however, that Les Fontenelles is in a rural location and is not very well served by public transport. We strongly recommend the availability of a vehicle whilst you are here and there is ample parking.   Car Hire is available.   We do provide two bicycles for popping along to the local village and there are excellent walks from the gite,


Gite Les Fontenelles is ideally situated for a short break as it is about halfway between two tourist areas, the Dordogne Valley and the Lot Valley.    Bergerac, on the Dordogne, is about 25 kilometres to the north and Villeneuve sur Lot, to the south, is only about 40kms.
