San Francisco CHRONICLE ARTICLE PUBLISHED JULY 9 2006 & Dec 31, 2006:
Our travels recently led us to southwestern France, where we had a great experience at Les Gîtes Fleuris in the Dordogne region of the Aquitaine. We thought we had taken a wrong turn as we drove up the dirt road, past chickens and horses and shirtless Frenchmen watering their flowers at 9 p.m. Then we saw the gorgeous farmhouses shown on the Web site, on top of a hill overlooking sprawling farmland and beautiful countryside. We stayed in their Petite Rose house, a romantic and rustic one-bedroom cottage built in the 16th century. The list of amenities includes wireless Internet, a pool, hot tub, outdoor barbecue and patio, bicycles and ping pong. The best resource, in our opinion, was the owners, Larry and Renata Barnes. They live in the main house with their two lovely daughters and are an amazing source of local knowledge. Renata, a former travel agent, gave us great tips on what to see and what not to see, and both were always good for sharing a glass of wine on the patio. The town where the chateau is located was surprisingly untouched by time. The Bordeaux wine country is less than two hours away, but the best part of the area was the Dordogne River, where for a few euros you can take a leisurely, daylong canoe trip past castles and unbeatable scenery.
