About Karen Carter

The owners are Alan and Karen Carter, we are South African,. We have travelled and lived in America and the UK and included all the things we like to have when we are away from home. We discovered the Dordogne in 2008 when we visited a friend who owns a property outside Tremolat. We both have fallen in love with the area. Alan and I would like to share our beautiful farmhouse and now recently our newly RENOVATED barn with anyone who loves fabulous food, unbelievable scenery, amazing history, and peace. The peace you too discover.

Karen Carter purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I recently visited this cottage with some friends and I really recommend a trip to anyone looking for a nice relaxing french countryside holiday! The house itself was so cutely designed with an outside braai area where we sat and had duck pate, cheese and wine every night! The house had everything you could possibly need and more! The house was in walking distance to the main town area which has a few delicious restaurants! The area itself was absolutely stunning! We went canoeing down the Dordogne which was such a beautiful experience and additionally visited a few Castles which had the most breathtaking views! I recommend this cottage to anyone looking to take some time out and explore the French Countryside!! Loved it!!!

The perfect countryside break away! Mindblowing!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is absolutely stunning and is so well equipped with everything you could need for a wonderful stay. Everything was perfect, from the amazingly comfortable beds to the unbelievably beautiful scenery all around this area. The hosts were available and suggested some great places and activities for us to do in and around Tremolat. There really is loads to do in the area, but the cottage is also so nice and lovely if you prefer to stay home! A real french countryside experience! Will definitely go back and recommended this to anyone!

Good sized property with lovely pool area

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the cottage which has 4 bedrooms- 2 upstairs and 2 down stairs and a bathroom on each level. The 2 bedrooms downstairs are big enough to have the double beds in but not much more room than that. One of the bedrooms upstairs is a lovely huge room with beams and air conditioning. The other is quite small with a smaller than double bed in. The stairs to get up there are very steep and would not be safe for young children without very close supervision or anyone who is a little unsteady.

The weather was very hot while we were there and although there were plenty of fans available, only one or two worked so the rooms without aircon got very hot, especially the ones downstairs where we were unable to open the windows due to no instect screens. We had requested a cot to be there for our 2 year old and it wasn't set up so had to request the bedding again for this when we arrived.

The wifi password hadn't been updated in the app or in the info in the cottage so was a lot of messing around when we arrived to figure it out from the packaging we found and needed it to use our phone as we travelled from Australia.

The pool area was fantastic and big enough for the whole family to play and relax at the side, it is fenced off too so great for younger kids. One of the loungers was broken so unable to use.

The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need but had minimal storage for food. The table was a good focal

point but we found one of the antique chairs were broken and a little dangerous.

The location of the property is further than we expected from Tremolat-

It is around 25-30 minutes walk, as opposed to 15! So not as easy to pop into the village as we expected.

The computer games that were available mainly consisted of games which required a microphone and there wasn't one available. The other games were unsuitable for my 9 year old nephew as they were rated age 12+.

Our daughter was sick and needed to go to hospital while we were there and Karen was great in helping me and arranged for Simons step son to come with us to translate! Thank you!!

Karen was quick to respond to any issues we had.

Overall a lovely property but needs a few things updating.

It would be helpful if the photos of the cottage and the barn would be seperate on the listing so it is very clear which photos belong to which property. The barn is recently renovated so much nicer.

Excellent house and facilities and good location. Everything provided

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week but were unfortunate that there was so much work going on at barn. Did not appreciate being woken at 7.15 one morning by banging of fence posts and Garden did not feel so private with people working immediately next to us on several days. Overall this did not spoil our holiday and I would recommend it to others

Owner's Response: Our sincere apologies for the disruption. We had no idea the gentleman was going to start work so early - we can only think he was trying to avoid the heat. Please come back and visit us soon.

A Kind of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had the luck to spend two weeks in this beautiful house. Normally one should keep it as a secret only sharing with best friends! We are looking forward and counting already the days for our next stay in Trémolat.

Step into ancient history by visiting the worlds best kept secret - The Dordogne valley of the Aquitaine Region. The French Country -Cottage Les Chouettes is situated in the hamlet of Nardoux, 1 km from Tremolat village. The property backs onto a walnut orchard. It is accessible to great walks, and cycle trips in the countryside. One can enjoy lovely day trips by foot, bike or car. .

Visit Sarlat for its wonderful market on a Wednesday and Saturday or simply enjoy the ambiance of this beautiful town.

Beynac Castle and its lovely village is worth a visit as well as a trip up the Dordogne River in a Gabarre(an old trade boat) What a great way to get an insight to the castles and chateaux of the area.

A visit to Les Eyzies is a must as well as a visit to the Lascaux Caves. These caves contain some of the oldest and finest prehistoric art in the world. The cave paintings, which mainly depict animals, are some 17,000 years old and seem to have a ritual purpose. For preservation reasons, the public may only visit a well-executed replica called Lascaux 2.

Other Activities: Market shopping, Kayaking, Boating,Skiing, Hot Air Ballooning, Wildlife Viewing,Birding, Miniature golf Golfing,Horse riding, Cycling, rambling, Cooking, Wine tasting and Fine Dining experiences
