Gîte Jardins du Périgord
The Jardins du Périgord gîte, a little way from the chartreuse, is a gîte for 4 people with two air-conditioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. Its strong point is its terrace overlooking the swimming pool (salt water, heated and secured, 14m x 6m) and the hills. 12 km from Sarlat, it will allow you to fully enjoy the Périgord.

A charming gîte that will charm you
It is therefore a small and comfortable gîte, but with a living area of 100 m². We propose it for 4 persons, in order to preserve the calm of the property. This independent building was originally a barn. It faces the chartreuse, which is a manor house with the same configuration as the Moulinsart castle, but without stairs and without a Mansard roof. We transformed part of the ground floor of the barn into a games room, keeping the other part and the whole length of the first floor for the gîte. But the restoration has taken great care to keep the exposed beams of the 18th century roof structure.
But as pleasant as it is, would you like to go back in time? From the depths of the Périgord, 4,000 centuries look down on you. To discover the Périgord is to discover our ancestors in a way, from prehistory to the 18th century, via the Romans or the Middle Ages. And as travelling through these tens of thousands of years of human presence is not something you can do in one or two weeks, we have put together a selection of the most important/interesting sites and they are classified by distance from your gîte. Here it is.
Wifi | Heated and secured saltwater swimming pool | Jacuzzi | Sauna | Massage chair | No smoking | Reversible air-conditioning in the rooms | Terrace and private garden with barbecue and garden furniture | Pets by prior arrangement | Bicycles available | Games room | Toys and games | Table tennis | Table football | Free parking
Why is our gîte Jardins du Périgord a "green gîte"?
Yes, you can combine ecology and aesthetics, responsible holidays and pleasant holidays.
For years, we have made our gîte Jardins du Périgord a green gîte, a bit like Mr Jourdain making prose ? without knowing it. It was when we added up all our micro-choices that we realised that we were well on the way to making the ecological transition to eco-responsible accommodation (without being perfect, of course).
Here is what we are doing so that together we can reduce our ecological footprint in general and our carbon footprint in particular:
Design of the lodge and materials
- Double glazing on most windows
- Attic insulation with hemp
- Old stone barn with exposed timber frame and chestnut parquet flooring on the first floor.
- Garden furniture: acacia, not plastic
A large part of the electricity produced is supplied by our solar panels, especially in the hot summer months. This makes it possible to power the air conditioning, for example, which is essential on hot days. This shows that ecology is not always the enemy of comfort!
For the rest of the electricity needs, our supplier Alterna favours renewable energy. Of course, we use LEDs and electrical appliances with at least an A rating (some are A+ or A++). Outdoor lighting is either LED-based or solar-powered.
By sharing the most energy consuming facilities (swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi) with our two other gîtes, we are able to significantly reduce our water and electricity consumption per person.
The salt pool requires very few chemicals. It is heated by dedicated solar panels (which do not produce electricity but only hot water).
The car park is equipped with domestic plugs to recharge your hybrid or electric cars, and you will be doubly virtuous if you recharge your car between midday and 8pm, as you will then be consuming the electricity from our photovoltaic panels!
Tap water: A Brita carafe with filter is available, allowing you to drink purified tap water. For those who want sparkling water, we have a Sodastream available. All this not only avoids plastic bottles, but also the need to carry them!
Rainwater harvesting: In some years we do not need to use city water for watering the garden and vegetable patch.
Oyas: This age-old technique consists of filling porous earthen pots buried at the foot of the plants with water, which prevents evaporation.
Plants adapted to the climate: Our specifications are both simple and complicated. We need plants that can withstand frost in winter and drought in summer, that flower from April to November, and that are melliferous if possible. For the vegetable garden, we use organic seeds that require little water, often old species.
Cultivation: We do not use any pesticides and use simple techniques ? mulching, organic fertiliser, and vinegar with coarse salt to make the paths more presentable. For our boxwoods, regularly visited by the pyralid moth, we use an organic insecticide based on bacillus thuringiensis.
The welcome products we provide are organic (Nespresso compatible capsules, wine, apple juice) as well as shower gel or washing up liquid.
The garden has over 80 different species of flowers (not including succulents and the flower meadow) and we have planted bamboo and laurel hedges, walnut trees, almond trees, magnolia, lilac, albizia, cypress, forsythia, eucalyptus, catalpa, liquidambar, gingko biloba, olive trees, palms, banana trees and Japanese quince. All this makes butterflies and bees happy!
