Gîte in Périgord

Marie-Claire & Christian Poinot welcome you in their gîte (holiday cottage), situated in the medieval village of Milhac in Bouriane, between Quercy and Périgord: you will be enchanted by this former farm house, rehabilitated, typical of the area, which largely displays the local yellow stone.

The gîte ("3 épis" on the scale of Gîtes de France) is next to the owner’s house, you will have access to the flowered courtyard, with parking space, and enjoy the open shed for barbecue for your private use.

If our village is isolated and quiet, it is nonetheless ideally situated in the heart of the most famous sites of Quercy and Périgord. To mention just a few: the caves of Cougnac, Lascaux illustrate prehistory, Padirac geological wonders, Rocamadour religious fervour; the past comes to life in the meandering narrow streets of Sarlat and Gourdon, the military architecture of Castelnaud and Fénelon is a reminder of the harsh living conditions of medieval life.

Lots more curiosities, as awesome or more modest but always so enriching, will keep you busy day after day.

Walkers, don’t forget your shoes! From our village, and as soon as you pass our gate, you have at your disposal a great number of hike paths, and a rock climbing site is just a few hundred meters away.
