About the property

Ground floor gite in peaceful rural location near to Sarlat-La-Caneda

Vine Cottage is a lovely ground floor gite that has undergone extensive renovation, it is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. There is free WiFi available throughout the gite and in the garden.

Vine Cottage has a large kitchen/living/dining area, a bedroom and ensuite shower room. There is a king size bed (5ft wide) in the bedroom and a single sofa bed in the living room. The property has the private use of its own garden and a large shared pool just a few steps away from the gite.

There is a flat screen TV with English language satellite television channels and a DVD player. The kitchen is well equipped and has a cooker with hob and grill, a microwave, a large fridge freezer and a washing machine.

Ideally situated in a tranquil hamlet in the heart of the Dordogne region, the property is surrounded by countryside walks and bike trails and has the advantage of stunning valley and woodland views.

Although Vine Cottage is set in a rural location it is only a few minutes drive away from beautiful market towns and villages, historical sites, the Dordogne River and many other areas of interest.

Dogs are welcome for an extra charge - please ensure that you notify us of your dog/s before booking. There is a fenced in off-lead exercise area for your dogs and the garden of Vine Cottage is fenced. Other than these areas your dog must be on-lead at all times at La Blanquette and is not allowed around the pool area.

There are two restaurants, a farm shop and an organic grocery store within walking distance and the town of Sarlat, which is just a 7 minute drive away, has many cafes, bars and tourist attractions.

We also offer a daily freshly baked bread/pastries delivery service - direct to your door!

For those of you feeling active you can use one of the bikes that are available to hire to cycle your way around this beautiful part of the country (we have electric bikes too!). We also hire out canoes and kayaks as the Dordogne River, with its lovely picnic spots and swimming is only a short distance away. We'll take you and the canoe to your chosen start point and then collect you later and bring you home.

Whether it is a peaceful and relaxing holiday that you are looking for, a crazy busy one, or a mixture of the two, then Vine Cottage is the perfect base for you.

Vine Cottage is set within the grounds of La Blanquette, which is where the friendly but unintrusive owners live. La Blanquette Gites and Glamping consists of three beautiful gites, two luxury bell tents, and a vintage caravan located just 5km outside of Sarlat-La-Caneda in a location which combines the best of both worlds - peaceful rural countryside and bustling town life. The grounds cover more than 12 acres and are made up of lawned areas and woodland. There is ample off-road parking and a secure locked store for those of you bringing your own bikes.

A welcome hamper is provided and will be in the gite for your arrival. A typical hamper contains a bottle of local wine, bread, milk, cheese, butter, coffee and biscuits. Contents may vary.

Children over 12 are welcome.

Vine Cottage is situated below Grape Cottage and both have separate entrances and separate outside areas. Le Petit Gite is a detached gite with its own garden. The tents (Chene Vert and Truffe Noire) and the caravan (Chestnut) are nestled within our of woodland.

Our accommodation can be rented together or separately. By renting them together parties of friends and/or family can combine close proximity with privacy.

Free WiFi can be accessed throughout the grounds.

La Blanquette is a place that everybody can enjoy no matter what you are looking for in your holiday; the location is rural while at the same time the medieval town of Sarlat with its ample amenities and numerous attractions can be reached in the car within a few minutes or a longer downhill walk.

There is a large shared swimming pool (open May - September weather dependent) with Roman steps and sunbathing areas nestled into the 12 acres of grounds complete with winding woodland walks that are waiting to be explored.

For those of you looking for exciting night life and fine dining Sarlat has some fantastic restaurants and bars to offer, some of the best in Perigord Nord in fact. For those looking for quieter nightlife there is a BBQ to enable you to enjoy al fresco dining and the well equipped kitchen contain all you need to prepare a six course banquet or a simple G&T!

Vine Cottage is the best of the best.

  • 4 of 5

Have stayed in many gites over the years but Vine Cottage has everything you could ask for and more. Nothing is any trouble to the owners who are nearby if needed but NEVER intrude. Gite and surrounding woodlands are wonderful. Counting the days until we can return.

Peaceful & relaxing......

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, tranquil all set in beautiful surroundings and a lovely warm welcome from the owners. We stayed in Vine cottage, everything you need, very charming, comfortable and peaceful nights sleeping.

Sarlat is only a few minutes drive and a must to visit. Added bonus for us, weather was nearing 30 degrees, late October! We Loved it and highly recommend La-Blanquette. Can't wait to go back.
