Going on holiday as a family can be a wonderful experience. Finding family friendly gites in Dordogne might seem tricky, but we’ve deliberately catered for you at GiteDordogne. We have arranged numerous fantastic family get-togethers at our beautiful farmhouse and gardens.
This family-friendly gite gives you the chance to relax and enjoy time together with your family. We are also realists. That’s why this gite also gives you space to each go do your own thing; by the lake, by the pool, by the terrace, indoors in the huge banquet-hall style lounge-kitchen-dining area – and then come back together.
The terrace is large enough to support a lot of people. Plus the Jacuzzi hot-tub, plus tables and chairs for meals, as well as outdoors sofas and recliners.
Just down from the terrace is acres and acres of grassland, where you you pull up a deck-chair and sun yourself. Then later, watch the sun go down. You might want to take a barbecue down there to eat with your very own beautiful sunset.
A short walk down to the lake, the children might want to go boating or mess about in the lake. The lake has a spit / promontory, sticking out into the body of the lake, with tables and log chairs which is a fantastic spot for a family picnic.
The area indoors gives you a lot of space to be together without getting under each others feet.
In the lounge area is a large TV and 12-seater sofa area for plenty of people to get together, relax and have drinks.
This gite farmhouse is available for Christmas, which makes it perfect for a multiple-family get together – maybe the family of your siblings.

There is also plenty to do with your children around the area, as a daytrip out with your kids.
In the nearby village of Jumilhac Le Grand, you and your family can go gold-panning in the river.
Just ask at the Jumilhac Tourist Office, on the square in Jumilhac, to book your gold panning trip. We have plenty of spare welly boots you can borrow, but it can be done in rough old trainers.
Another great day out with family, which is only a short trip away from the gite, is the Velorail at Bussiere Galant.
With the VeloRail, you are on an old disused train track and with a buggy that 2 of you can cycle along. You travel 6km out through beautiful forests and back again. Well worth a visit.
