    • Unusual themed cottages, 15 minutes from Sarlat, the medieval city of Périgord Noir

      Ideally located in the heart of the Périgord Noir, between Sarlat and the Vézère Valley (Montignac, the Lascaux Caves), the Prehistogite offers you the rental of 4 themed gîtes. Here you are immersed in the reconstruction of a prehistoric shelter… But with all the modern comforts !

      From the outside, nothing or almost nothing suggests the unusual atmosphere of these comfortable and unusual lodgings. Rustic wooden furniture, animal skins, plastered walls then decorated with great talent, cave paintings evoking those of the Lascaux Caves and the surrounding area... The lodgings are perfect for 2 to 4 people, they all consist of a bed double, nestled in an alcove fully decorated with subdued lighting. Installed there, you are like in a troglodyte shelter, adorned with superb paintings of different shades of ocher, brown, black... A change of scenery guaranteed! 3 cottages also have a sofa bed and can then accommodate 4 people. Wifi, television, bathroom, WC… Only the decoration is prehistoric, everything else is very comfortable, modern and clean.

      Perfect for small families, the Prehistogite is also popular with couples. The owners offer you a selection of local products, arranged in 3 menus. You can, by ordering it 24 hours in advance, have it delivered to the gîte to enjoy it quietly, without having to go out to enjoy this very special atmosphere. All the products offered are from local farms and chosen for their taste qualities, the quantities are generous and a selection of drinks with or without alcohol will be offered to you.

      For the pleasure of all in summer, the Préhistogite has a swimming pool, to cool off, swim and relax after a day of sightseeing. It is also possible to enjoy a real and large Jacuzzi / Spa (all year round). The cottages are available for rent all year round, they are heated, some with a wood stove, to prolong the atmosphere!

      Saint-Geniès is a pretty little town, with a charming town centre, houses with Lauze roofs, a castle, restaurants and local shops. A magnificent market takes place on Sunday mornings all year round and the gourmet night market is held on Wednesday evenings in season. From Saint-Geniès, it is very quick to get to Sarlat, but also to the Dordogne Valley, to visit Gardens, Castles, Charming Villages, canoeing, kayaking, barge trips on the Dordogne... on the other side, the Vézère Valley awaits you, with its visit sites, caves, shelters under rocks but also castles and villages. And why not take a day trip to Lot or Corrèze which are also less than an hour away? For an exotic holiday, in the heart of one of the most beautiful regions of the Dordogne and the Périgord Noir, think of the Préhistogite!
