Gite in Dordogne

My husband and I are looking for a gite in the Dordogne or Languedoc to rent for a week in June. Our main interest is food so good restaurants and a nice market nearby are a must! We would like to be able to walk to a Boulangerie in the mornings. Being somewhere off the main tourist track is also important. We will be driving from San Sebastian . Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

A lot of the Dordogne gites and rental properties that we looked at a couple of years ago were either outside of town (too out-of-the-way for us), or smack in the middle of a larger town (and we wanted a small-town experience). We eventually found a nice, roomy old house in a charming yet unexceptional village called Daglan.

It was perfect for us, because the town had exactly one of everything. One nice restaurant. One funky pub-restaurant. One bakery (50 yards from front door). One grocery/market. One post office. One ATM. And one cute little town square.

And while it was off the main tourist track, it was also a very quick and easy drive to Domme, Cenac or Castelnaud.

FYI, we rented the place from

Daglan is a wonderful village - quite cute & just barely off the tourist route.

Better hurry if you want to rent for this June. We reserved our Gite in Aug '08 for this coming June.

several years ago we stayed at a place called La Gueriniere. It was a couple of km. outside domme/cenac. We walked into town several times. There were more pleasant walks on the backroads in the surrounding countryside. It was a 10-15 minute drive to Sarlat. There were numerous restarants in Domme. A couple of boulangeries in Cenac. A great location. There website is
