Self-Catering Gite Holidays in the Heart of the Dordogne
La Bonne Etoile (the French translation is 'lucky star') named after the wonderful starry skies we have here in the Dordogne)
Welcome to the Périgord Noir, the area within the beautiful Dordogne which makes up the most visited part of inland France.

Maybe because we have 1001 fairytale Chateaux, a warm sunny climate, a huge network of cycle and walking paths, clean rivers ideal for water sports & swimming, gastronomic restaurants, delicious wine, world famous 50,000 year old cave paintings and to top it off 10 of the 152 most beautiful villages of France are in the region.
So no matter what you are looking for on your holiday, there is a huge range of activities suitable for couples and families alike, all within easy reach.
