The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:: The french country cottage is a great rental and is only a 15 minute walk from the village, There are 3 fantastic restaurants in the village - one of which holds a Michelin star and is situated in Le Vieux Logis hotel - there is a pizzeria, and a fantastic Bistro which offers typical Perigordian cuisine. There is a great little bakery where you can buy your morning croissants and baguettes for a picnic later in the day. We love cycling through the countryside to visit the local markets. There is also small supply store in the village for items you may have forgotten to buy.
Approximately 3 km from the cottage is the Bassin nautique which is one the Dordogne River, here you and your family can enjoy all types of water activities - water skiiing, peddle boating, paddling and swimming.
