In the large, shared garden there is a HEATED SWIMMING POOL (shared with Le Noyer, a renovated barn) and superb pool deck with stone barbecue and summer seating/dining area.

The location is amazing. Paul and Jane, the owners, were very friendly and helpful and are very knowledgeable about the area. Stunning pool and BBQ area. The self catering gite we stayed in was fantastic. We will definitely visit again.

Interaction with guests
The owners, Paul and Jane, who live discreetly on site, would love to welcome you to La Balade Au Bois and help to create your perfect holiday stay. They have been coming here for years and it has never failed to fill them with a wonderful sense of peace and repose and they just know that it will do the same for you. So that you can organise your holiday in advance Paul and Jane have put together a very comprehensive list of local activities and tourist attractions- all within easy striking distance of the gite. There is even a special list of activities for children! We really are in in the middle of beautiful rolling countryside and yet just 15mins from lots of great activities!

About the neighbourhood
Le Chataignier is one of our two gites both located on this one gorgeous, rural site in the hamlet of Les Cabanes near Nabirat, in the famed Perigord Noir area of the Dordogne. Just 20 minutes from the medieval town of SARLAT, you will be spoiled with lovely rolling views, fantastic world-class heritage sites on your doorstep, and all amid total peace and tranquillity. There are 'hotspots' in the Dordogne and we are definitely in one of those- the choice is yours- total relaxation in our rural setting or, in just a few minutes, you can be at some of the best tourist sites that the Dordogne has to offer! Domme, La Roque- Gageac, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Chateau des Milandes, Lascaux ...the list goes on!
