Characterful cottage with views over Dordogne countryside


“Hidden gem in the heart of French countryside.”

When one of our guests described Belle Surprise with these words, we were overjoyed. That’s exactly how we feel about our gite and we’re so glad others agree.

Situated in the quiet village of Carsac de Gurson, this is rural France at its best. On the one hand you have the perfect bolthole where you can simply chill, take in the views, dine in the fresh air and relax by or in the pool. On the other, you have an ideal base from which to venture out and discover the delights of South West Dordogne.
