  • ** Gites Fajoles is available for sale by direct negotiation with the Owner - 2 modernised gites, each sleeping 8 and separate Owners accommodation - Contact us for further details. For 2024 rentals, the gites are available to rent separately, see the buttons below for Gite Sarlat and Gite Souillac. One is being rented on a weekly basis, and the other on a monthly basis** 

    Les Gites Fajoles is situated in the north of the Lot département and make a great base to explore this historic and scenic area, with the splendid scenery of the Dordogne river within 5 miles/8km. The historic and beautiful towns of Sarlat, Domme, Souillac and Gourdon are also close at hand with many historic and scenic features to explore - be sure to allow at least two visits to Sarlat.

    The area around Les Gites Fajoles is level and ideal for exploring on two wheels, four wheels or two legs, and bicycles are available to hire locally if required. Those requiring sterner tests will enjoy exploring the steeper countryside of the Périgord and the Causse de Quercy which have very different characteristics but are equally beautiful.

  • Spacious, light and comfortably furnished, Les Gites Fajoles comprises two adjacent gites sleeping a total of 16 people.  Combined there are:

     - 4 x Double bedrooms with king-size beds

     - 4 x Twin bedrooms

    Each gite has a comprehensive kitchen set up with an electric cooker and oven, microwave and a good range of utensils.

    Each gite has a ground floor shower room with WC and an upstairs bathroom with shower over and WC.

    Plenty of comfortable seating and Engish satellite television in each gite makes for comfortable evenings or in less clement weather, and there is wireless internet also, although as with most of rural France, line speeds will be adequate for everyday things, games, movie streaming and other high requirement applications may not function perfectly. CD and MP3 players are available as is an iPod dock.

    Central heating is installed for all the year-round occupation (Heating supplements may be charged)

    A cot and high chair are available on the premises.

    Parking : Two cars can be parked (with care)

  • There is parking available for several cars beside the gites.

    Each gite has an outdoor decked area with tables, seating and a charcoal barbecue for al fresco dining. 

    There is a large communal garden area on the other side of the gites where ball games can be played.

    A secure bicycle store is planned for visiting cyclists. There are miles of relatively level roads or more testing on or off-road routes all around the countryside. Cycle hire can be arranged by prior request - please ask for details.

    Those requiring swimming have the choice of several river beaches along the Dordogne, or there are several Base de Loisirs' in local towns offering lifeguard patrolled swimming and other leisure activities together.

  • The North Lot and Dordogne areas offer a wealth of attractions to all types of visitor: The rural location makes just the escape worthwhile, whilst miles of quiet country roads around make exploring by bicycle a natural attraction.

    The spectacular scenery of the Dordogne river is only a short distance away with plenty of opportunity for fishing, canoeing/kayaking and other water-based activities.

    There are several points on the river at which canoes and kayaks can be hired, and quality bicycle hire including helmets and delivery is available from Bike Hire Direct among other operators in nearby towns.

    A 7km/4.5m walk route with map and English directions starting from Gites Fajoles can be downloaded HERE. This walk was blogged in Autumn 2017 - see HERE for the blog

    The historic towns of Sarlat, Domme, Gourdon and Souillac each have their own charm and appeal - the spectacular views over the river and Dordogne valley from Domme and the tiny historic streets of the old parts of Sarlat stand out as 'must do' places to visit. Each village has its own charm, and guests will always have their own favourites.

    There are castles aplenty to visit - several on the Dordogne river, including the very visible Montfort, or venture into the scenic hills of the south Périgord to find the complete castles of Biron and Bonaguil as the architecture and scenery begin to change from Périgourdine to Quercy.

    Markets are always popular, with market days well publicised: For food lovers, the journey south to Prayssac market on Friday will be rewarded with delicious foods from the town market and several other artisan producers in the town as well.
    The annual 'Fête des Truffes' - Truffle Festival - takes place in Sarlat in Mid January, and is a great event to visit for anyone interested in food looking for something a little different to break the winter up.
