John & Karen Le Cuirot
The Award Winning, 3 Star rated Gites de St Christophe are perched high directly above the Font de Gaume and Combarelles prehistoric caves, at the end of a picturesque hamlet called Le Repaire, with breath-taking panoramic views over the quaint village of Sireuil, its 12th century roman abbey church and the Vézère Valley (also known as the Vallée de l’Homme), providing you with a feeling of peace and tranquillity, and total privacy. A stone's throw away from the Dordogne River Valley and its numerous imposing medieval castles of the Hundred Years’ War. The Gȋtes form part of an ensemble of beautiful honey colour limestone buildings dating back to the 1830s, with one of the Gȋtes, named “Lavande”, being the original baker's house for the hilltop hamlet, (the original baker’s stone oven beautifully preserved in the main bedroom!) Surrounded by beautiful countryside, our Gȋtes and main house have been lovingly restored to provide comfortable rustic yet stylish self-catering, holiday cottages (Gȋtes) that come with a large, relaxing swimming pool and spacious sun terraces which benefit from one of the best panoramic views in the region!
We are John & Karen, the owners and hosts of these beautiful Gîtes. John is originally from Jersey, Karen is from Brittany in Northern France. We speak English, French and Spanish fluently, therefore communication should be easy with us for any enquiries you may have during your stay! As our family includes a gentle dog and a timid cat we regret we cannot accept guests’ pets. We will do everything we can to ensure your stay with us is a very relaxed and enjoyable one, we are on hand to provide all local knowledge, advice on where to go, what to visit, where to eat, the choices are endless! We can provide suggested itineraries for our guests and even can provide English, French and Spanish lessons! Our Gîtes are for adults only, so our guests can really enjoy the total peace, quiet and tranquility that these wonderful properties offer! We very much look forward to welcoming you to our Gȋtes very soon!
The wonderful Grotte de Font de Gaume, Les Combarelles and Abri du Cap Blanc all offer to the public their original drawings and paintings dating back from 12,000 to 17,000 years BC. You can buy tickets to visit these 3 sites at Grotte de Font de Gaume only (just at the bottom of the road leading to our house, 1 min drive away). Only a very limited amount of people can visit the caves, i.e. less than 70 per day. You could visit Font de Gaume in the morning and Les Combarelles in the afternoon. Then, Abri du Cap blanc another day. These 3 original prehistoric sites are closed on Saturdays. Each visit lasts at least one hour. We will also recommend you to visit the following sites as they are all close to our Gîtes: Château de Commarque, Château de Puymartin, Cabanes du Breuil, Sireuil village with its 12th century roman abbey (which we can see from the panoramic view of our property and pool), Roc de Cazelle (prehistoric site), Grotte du Grand Roc, museums at Les Eyzies, Rocque de St Christophe, Maison Forte de Reignac, troglodyte village of la Madeleine! We provide detailed guide books for all our guests to use whilst they are staying with us!
