  • the name of the tenant and his or her address and phone number
  • the start and the end of the rental period (including time of access and departure)
  • the rent amount and what it includes (linen, towels, cleaning, electricity, water…) as well as what it excludes (heat, wood for the fireplace?…)
  • how the rent should be paid (Pay-pal, bank transfer, money wire, cheque?…), and when the rent should be paid (dates and amounts of down payment and balance)
  • whether a damage deposit is required, and if so, when is it payable, how damage is measured, how and when the deposit is refunded, and how deductions are made

Where to Go, What to Do

Canoeing on the Dordogne
Canoeing on the Dordogne

Within walking distance from the gîte, the medieval village of Carlux has a boulangerie (baker), grocery, doctor, dentist, a bar-restaurant and also a traditional restaurant rustique.

A fifteen minute drive will bring you to the richly historic medieval town of Sarlat with many shops, restaurants, banks and supermarkets, and a market on Wednesday and Saturday. There are more markets to be found every day in all the nearby villages, selling local produce, cheeses, meats and more.

There are swimming and picnic beaches all along the Dordogne river. Canoeing and kayaking are available at Rouffillac. A cycle and walking track runs along the banks of the Dordogne river, and for the more experienced walkers, the GR6 trail goes through Carlux.

Golf is at Chateau Montford, and tennis and horse riding can be found in Souillac. Fishing is available all along the Dordogne river. Theme parks of all types can be found between Souillac and Sarlat.

Rocamadour
Rocamadour

Two areas of history are represented in the Dordogne. The prehistoric cave paintings in Lascaux, dating back 17,000 years, are internationally renowned.

Medieval history is represented by the many chateaux, including Château Millande, the home of Josephine Baker, and Château de Castlenaud, which has a popular museum of medieval warfare, featuring reconstructions of siege engines and trebuchets.

The pilgrimage village of Rocamadour, built into a hillside, is well worth a visit. Don't miss the riverside villages of Beynac and Le Roc Gageac, and Domme, a crucial town in the turbulent medival history of the Templar sect. There are so many local chateaux that it's easier to take a balloon flight or an airplane ride and see them all in an afternoon.
