Overview

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday cottage in Trémolat - Le Castellot

Le Castellot provides an ideal setting for large family holidays in France.

A recently renovated barn conversion with 6-9 bedrooms providing spacious holiday accomodation for multi-family groups (up to 18 people), Le Castellot provides child friendly holidays in France. The accomodation comprises a large converted barn, enclosed garden, separate Summer House with cinema and games room, enclosed pool area and a further playing field.

Huge solar-heated pool (14x6m + 5x5m baby pool) plus private cinema/games room great for all ages especially teenagers (even if it rains).

The barn is situated in the grounds of a 400 year old farmhouse in the Dordogne valley - arguably the most beautiful region in France! The surrounding area is packed with prehistoric attractions, chateaux, bastide towns, watersports, local markets and great restaurants.

The accomodation has been designed with children in mind; after all when the children are happy the adults can relax!

We can provide cots, high chairs, changing mat, pram and push chairs to cut down on the amount of luggage you need to bring.

For older kids there is a separate summer house with table tennis, billiards table and its own cinema and games console. Even if it rains they have plenty to keep them occupied.

About David Quinn

Le Castellot is run by David and Sarah Quinn, with a little help from our 4 children James, Andrew, Naomi and Leo. We moved to the region in 2002 from Berkshire in the UK and have been providing holiday rentals since 2005.

David Quinn purchased this cottage in 2002

Why David Quinn chose Perigord Noir

The property is 3km outside the pretty village of Trémolat which boasts a fantastic 'Bistro', Pizzaria, and a 5 star restaurant 'Le Vieux Logis'. There is also a mini-market, bakery, post office and an art gallery. Trémolat is also the home of the Bassin Nautique, one of France's top water sports venues where you can try your hand at water skiing or canoeing. There are also two tennis courts available.

Trémolat is centrally situated in the region known as the Perigord Noir which is famous for its fabulous countryside, truffles, Fois Gras, walnut groves and prehistoric sites. Most attractions are within 30 minutes drive.

Every day of the week one of the local towns or villages hosts a Market in the morning; we can provide you with a timetable. Throughout the summer there are also ‘marche gourmands’ in the evening – like a street party - where you can join the locals in a bottle or two of wine and a choice of excellent local food, but you have to get there early to get a seat!

Wine is amazingly cheap in France and wine tours are available in the region for those who wish to delve deeper into the subject.

For those who like fishing, Le Castellot is a 5 minute walk from the river Dordogne.

Séjour parfait avec un très bon accueil

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé le week end de l'ASCENSION 2015 entre amis dans ce superbe gite (14 pers). Toutes les pièces sont fonctionnelles et donc agréable à vivre...à noter, le grand + de cette location, la pièce de cinéma pour les enfants mais aussi billard, table de ping pong, vélo d’appart pour les plus grands. Piscine bien entretenue, vélos tte taille à disposition, 2 gds barbecue... bref le pied au niveau équipement !!. L'accueil chaleureux et la disponibilité du propriétaire sont également à souligner. En gros, nous reviendrons sans aucune hésitation dans ce gite.

Un très beau séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans ce gîte spacieux et très confortable. L'espace "jeux" est un vrai plus qui a su séduire les adultes comme les enfants : vélos d'appartement, billard, ping pong ou jeux vidéo. Les vélos pour toutes les tailles ont ravi les enfants et les grands. L'accueil est chaleureux et David toujours prêt à vous aider !

Très agréable séjour au "Castellot"

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans le gîte de la famille Quinn. Il est idéal pour les petits et les plus grands. La salle de jeu et la piscine sont des vrais plus. Les équipements mis à disposition par les propriétaires sont variés et très sympas : bbq, vélos avec porte enfant, jeux pour enfants, table ping pong, etc.

Le gîte est proche d'activités en plein air, idéal pour un weekend en famille ou entre amis !

Vacances parfaites entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans cette grande maison, nous étions 11 adultes et 6 enfants. La maison est parfaitement équipée pour les enfants : jeux intérieur et extérieur très nombreux, lits parapluies, chaises hautes, les enfants sont en totale sécurité : barrières pour les escaliers, jardin clos et piscine inaccessible sans un adulte, de plus la pataugeoire est très grande et parfaite pour les petits!!

La maison est fonctionnelle, il y a tout ce qu'il faut, même 2 barbecues, la piscine est très grande, il manque un peu de lumière à l’extérieur le soir et des rideaux occultant dans toutes les chambres mais ce sont des détails.

Région magnifique, beaucoup de lieu à visiter et de promenade à faire.

Les propriétaires sont discrets mais très réactifs à la moindre demande, pour exemple un des micro ondes ne fonctionnait plus il a était changé pour un neuf dans la journée.

Pour les ados (et même pour les adultes!!!) la salle de jeux est très appréciable notamment le billard!!

Un séjour parfait!

très bon accueil des propriétaires. maison très agréable, spacieuse et conforme aux photos du site. le fait de ne pas avoir de lit à faire à l'arrivée est une chose appréciable.Je recommande vraiment cet endroit.
