People looking for a relaxing holiday, away from the hustle and bustle of their ordinary life, should certainly take a look at the Domaine Courbiac
Domaine Courbiac is located in Cinq Sols, a hamlet in the neighbourhood of the river Lot.
The Lot-et-Garonne region is an ideal holiday destination. (south of the Dordogne). There is a lot of nature making it ideal to go hiking, horseback riding, cycling, swimming or canoeing.
Other popular activities are wine tasting (appellation Cahors with Malbec grapes), and enjoying the fine culinary wealth of regional products on local markets. (eg. truffles, foie gras, fruits)
Gite “La Brise” can be rented per week during the summer months and is ideal for families with 2 kids: in the biggest room you can find a handy kitchen and a 2 persons bed. The two kids can sleep in their own room. The bathroom is also big enough to accomodate everyone. But of course most of the time you won’t be spending time inside, but relax in the outdoors.
The domaine is very big, and beautifully located on a hill. The Gite has its own private terrace, but you can also go relaxing in the hammock in the garden. When it gets too hot, the swimming pool (with alarm for the small kids) is nearby and offers a beautiful sight on the valley.
The hosts Carla, Albert, Mark and dog Vlekkie (originally from the Netherlands) are very hospitable and will do everything to offer you a pleasant holiday. You can certainly see they enjoy living and working their dream in the South of France!
3 times a week they also offer a ‘Table d’hôtes’ – a 3 course dinner with local wines together with the other guests and the hosts themselves. Much recommended!
