If you're looking to experience the feel of life in a French village, this is where you want to be. Our house is located in the Dordogne department of southwestern France, in a charming medieval village called Issigeac. The nearest airport and train station (in the town of Bergerac) are just 15-20 minutes away.
The village has a full range of shops: cafes, restaurants, bakeries, small grocery stores, an organic food shop, butchers, a wine shop.
Our house is renovated but still simple. On the ground floor, the eat-in kitchen is surrounded by warm exposed stone walls, with exposed oak beams on the ceiling. On the first floor up, there are 3 bedrooms: (two with double beds, and one with bunk beds). The entire top floor is a sitting area with a double sofa bed and single day bed.
We are open to having as many as 8 people, but we recommend no more than four adults, as there is only one bathroom.
Outdoors, relax in our grassy courtyard garden - a rarity in the village.
The village is home to a weekly market on Sunday mornings (so it's highly recommended you start your rental on a Saturday). Just steps from our front door, you can get pretty much whatever you want to eat or drink. The market spills out from the central village square into the winding streets with fruit & vegetable stands, stalls that specialize in cheese, roast chicken, fish, oysters, olives, foie gras, crèpes, paella, sausages... It's a market-lover's dream.
