About the property

1 bedroom property with private pool - edge of village location

A delightful and spacious one bedroom house situated on the edge of the traditional village of Coux et Bigaroque. This a perfect holiday getaway for couples looking for a relaxing place to escape to.

The entrance leads you into a good sized, newly refurbished kitchen/diner with original beam over the door. A beautiful, bespoke oak staircase leads to the first floor where you will find the generous double bedroom and shower room. A large lounge is also located on the first floor with views over the pool and gardens.

Cool off in the private swimming pool surrounded by extensive terracing ideal for sunbathing, dining al fresco or watching the sunset with an evening aperitif. For those who prefer a shady option there are numerous trees to relax under or help yourself to the bounty of fruit on offer from the cherry, apple, pear, fig and nut trees.

A two minute stroll will take you to the heart of the village where you can buy your breakfast croissant from the boulangerie/epicerie. The village boasts two good restauarnts where you can enjoy a three course meal, with wine for a reasonable price You will also find a bar, Post Office, a cave (selling excellent wine) and a magasin de producteurs ( farm shop selling locally produced goods). In the summer months,farmers supplying the magasin hold a marché gourmand where their delights can be sampled (both food and wine) accompanied by live music. Sit down at one of the long trestle tables and enjoy the convivial atmosphere with the locals and other holiday makers.

The owner lives on site and will be there to welcome you and to help in any way possible on arrival. Then you will be left to enjoy your holiday, but if you need anything, the owner will be happy to help.

The house is ideally located to take advantage of all the area has to offer. If the outdoors is for you, then you are in the right place. From the bottom of the garden you can pick up walking routes which take you through the rolling countryside. For cyclists, again there are marked trails which can be picked up from the bottom of the garden (ladies and gents bikes available). Within walking distance is the River Dordogne which has a small plage (lifeguard in summer) as well as opportunities for those keen anglers. If messing about on the river is for you, canoes or kayaks can be hired in the next village.

This area is renowned for stunning castles, many of them dotted along the river, many within easy access from the house. If shopping is more your thing, there are a number of lively, colourful markets nearby with stalls laden with tempting local delicacies.

Perfect property for a break in France

  • 5 of 5

The property- has plenty of room and is well furnished- the shutters can be closed at night with the windows left open in order to stay cool. The bathroom and kitchen/dining areas are really nice, the living room has comfortable furniture and the bedroom is lovely. Internet access is variable depending on which room you're in, but it's generally good; we found the best place is on the bed where it was good enough to stream a football match.

The grounds - are brilliant with lots of space, fruit trees, plants and a massive lawn. The swimming pool is very clean and there's loads of shade under the trees

The village is quite small and peaceful but large enough for there to be a really good baker/general store, cafe and a few other shops. The baker is open all day including Sunday- also the nearest supermarket (2.5 km away) is open on Sunday morning. The village also has a beach on the river which is easily walkable and is really beautiful.

The wider area - is fabulous with medieval towns like Bergerac and Sarlat an easy drive away

The people - most importantly Shirley and Andy are very friendly and easy going. We got a fabulous (alcoholic)welcome and throughout our week they made sure that we had space and privacy whilst being available for us to ask any questions. We were lucky enough to bump into them at the Village's weekly Street food event (tuesday evenings and not to be missed) and learned loads about living in France from them and some of their Neighbours.

Wonderful stay - beautiful cottage, stunning location and incredible hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long stay at Shirley and Andy's beautiful annexed cottage in Coux et Bigaroque. The cottage itself was perfect for our needs - spotless, recently renovated and well equipped, and very spacious with a downstairs kitchen and dining area, and a bathroom, large bedroom and large living room upstairs. As much as we enjoyed heading out exploring the area, we equally loved staying at home enjoying the cottage and garden (which is massive, and has wonderful shady fruit trees, and a pool).

The cottage is perfectly located for exploring nearby attractions - Jardins de Marqueyssac, Domme, Monpazier, Chateau de Castelnaud etc were all within a short drive, and the village of Coux et Bigaroque itself is quaint - it has no supermarket (which wasn't a problem as there was one at the neighbouring village), but has a lovely restaurant / hotel and a boulangerie (of course!).

Shirley and Andy were the perfect hosts - exceptionally welcoming and accommodating, but never intrusive. They gave us great tips about villages to explore and sights to visit, and were always looking for ways to make our stay more comfortable.

Schöne Zeit im Perigord

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet und gepflegt, ebenso der Garten mit seinem schönen Pool. Die Gastgeber sind sehr aufmerksam und hilfsbereit, aber halten sich stets im Hintergrund, so dass man das Gefühl hat den Garten für sich allein zu haben. Einziger Makel ist der Verkehr, der durch das Dorf rauscht, eine Tempo 30 Zone wäre hier nicht schlecht. Davon abgesehen war es ein ruhiger und erholsamer Urlaub. TIPP: Dienstagabend ist im Dorf Nachtmarkt mit Essen aus der Region, günstig und sehr lecker!

Très bon séjour.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé d'agréables vacances chez Shirley and Andy. Très beau studio. Les propriétaires sont prevenants et très discrets.

La Dordogne est une très belle région et la maison est idéalement située pour visiter les sites incontournables du Périgord.

Je recommande fortement.
