This article presents information on two holiday spots for disabled people in the French countryside. These two properties are located in the small hamlet of Gresignac in the Dordogne region of southwest France. They are accessible to wheelchair users. The first property is a lovely restored stone cottage with a secluded level garden and terrace. It sleeps up to five people. The ground floor is accessible and has level access from the outside and to the garden and terrace. The ground floor has a double-bed room and another bed for one person. Both have enough clearance to accommodate a lift. A Porta 150 electric hoist is available for a small additional charge. Another double-bed room is located upstairs. The second property is a luxurious country house with a large garden and level sun terrace. It has four bedrooms--three with king beds, including one on the ground floor-and sleeps up to ten guests.
