La Résistance

Once part of the original farmhouse, converted by the previous owners to create a dining room and kitchen, the ground floor and original attic space has been converted into our latest gîte "La Résistance". La Résistance takes its name from the Second World War, where it was a hiding place for the Resistance fighters, who were secreted away in the attic.


Luxury Gite in the beautiful Dordogne
