Tranquillity in the Dordogne
We have just spent a delightful fortnight at this property.
We chose this house after much Googling in part because of the many excellent reviews it received, and they proved very accurate. Communications with Nigel, the owner, were very good - his replies were always swift, helpful and very warm. We felt completely confident that he would be a fine host and that any problems would be dealt with fast.
The house comprises basically two large rooms downstairs - a vast sitting area grouped into tv, dining and lounging, and a good-sized and well equipped kitchen, in which it was a joy to cook the wonderful local produce. Off, there is a utility room with washer and drier, and a bathroom with a satisfyingly savage shower.
The bedrooms are accessed by a beautiful spiral staircase, which requires a bit of extra vigilance on the part of toddlers or anyone with mobility issues. The bedrooms themselves are quaintly furnished and well supplied with comfy beds, and fans in case of extreme heat. Holidaymakers who are travelling in non-family groups should know that one of the double bedrooms is accessed through another. Off the middle bedroom is the lovely balcony you an see over the front door in the pictures; it has cane sofas and chairs and a table for drinks, and is a wonderful spot to have an aperitif while watching the sunset.
Outside, there is a large rough grassy area, bounded by trees and hedgerows (myrtles and plums for the picking) which would be wonderful for children to run riot on. The pool area does not have justice done by the on-line photos, which do not show its open aspect to full advantage. It is well maintained and the water beautifully clean, and the retractable cover holds the warmth so that a pre-breakfast dip is a pleasure rather than a trial. There are loungers, chairs and umbrellas that can provide any configuration of sun or shade you want. The same applies to the two patio dining areas. Just a word of advice: the mornings at The Cottage are especially lovely, with vast views over rolling countryside, often absolutely clear azure skies and total peace save the chatter of your resident flock of sparrows. But the sun does take a while to get over the hedge, so if you want to enjoy alfresco breakfast, take a jumper!
This is a lovely house in a beautiful area with a charming and helpful host, and we cannot recommend it more highly. Merci beaucoup, Nigel and Geraldine.
Hi Janet and Tony thanks for your lovely review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and made good use of the private pool and balcony for an evening drink. I hope you will stay with us again and best wishes. Nigel
L'emplacement est calme et paisible et la maison est très bien aménagée. Dans l'ensemble, c'est un endroit charmant éloigné de l'agitation et du bruit, mais pas trop rural si vous souhaitez explorer les nombreuses petites villes, villages, château de la région environnante. La piscine était apprécié par tour la famille.
Thank you for your kind review and really pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. It is a great place to relax and unwind but yet a great base to explore the beautiful region and all it has to offer. Thanks again for your booking and hope you will stay with us again soon. Kind regards Nigel
Pour se mettre au vert et déconnecter
Nous cherchions un lieu de vacances isolé, tout confort et dans une belle région : c’est trouvé ..... à cinq dans une maison périgourdine au style très britannique, nous avons profité « with pleasure » de la cuisine toute équipée, des grandes chambres mansardées et de l’immense pièce de vie ( piano, english books, games ). A l’extérieur propice à « farniente » au bord de la piscine après un BBQ sur les transats face aux collines : c’est la Dolce vita : vous attendez le couché de soleil. Les propriétaires ont tout fait pour qu’on se sente « comme à la maison » : WELL DONE....I ´LL BE BACK
Thank you for your lovely review really pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and enjoyed the pool on those hot days. We would love you to stay again as you were great guests. Thanks for staying and see you again soon. Regards Nigel
We spent an enjoyable week at this house. Plenty to do locally - caves, chateaus and quiet roads for cycling. Pool was a definite bonus on hot days. Would recommend.
Many thanks Graham really pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.
Quaint and quirky cottage
This is our second visit to this cottage. The location is quiet and peaceful and the cottage itself is very well appointed and although has been updated in recent years it still retains that charming character of a French country cottage. The weather was warm and sunny when we were there and the private pool is a real bonus just next to the house. There is also an outdoor barbeque and outdoor dining for those al fresco evenings. All in all a lovely place to stay if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, yet not too rural should you wish to explore the many charming market towns in the surrounding area. Highly recommended.
Thanks for taking the time to write your lovely review. It’s always great to hear that folk have enjoyed their stay at the cottage and enjoy it as much as we do. It’s a great base to explore the beautiful area and yes the pool is great for those hot sunny days. Look forward to you staying with us again, regards Nigel
Charmant séjour en Dordogne

Thank you for your great review. Yes, it's a great place for a quiet stay to relax and explore the area. The pool is great to cool off in during those warm summer days!! Hope you will stay with us again. Kind regards Nigel
Vi er beliggende i den nordøstlige Dordogne, Aquitaine, tæt på den perigordiske hovedstad Perigueux og den meget smukke brantome, der passende kaldes 'dordognes venice'. Vi er også perfekt beliggende for at udforske tresorerne i occitania med dens rige kulturelle og historiske bygninger, slotte og bastider. Atlanterhavskysten ligger kun 2-3 timer i bil. Der er også mange lokale søer inden for rækkevidde, der tilbyder en bred vifte af vandsport og andre faciliteter, herunder spisning.
Andre aktiviteter: Panorering efter guld og fremragende kanosejlads
Golf: Vi har ikke vist Golf som en del af vores forfremmelse, men vi kan anbefale begge kurser i hverken Perigueux
eller Limoges, alle inden for lige afstand fra under en times kørsel.
