A secluded cottage in an idyllic setting, set at the end of a small track with no passing traffic in beautiful Dordogne countryside. The cottage was converted from a 300 year old stone farmhouse to provide modern accommodation while retaining all of its rustic charm. It is maintained to a high standard and has all modern comforts and facilities to make your holiday as relaxing as possible.
The exposed stone walls and low beamed ceilings give the cottage a real old world feel, and the thick walls keep the cottage cool inside and provide a respite against the summer heat.
Outside there is a sunny patio with a retractable sun canopy for shade, and then just a few steps to the 10m x 5m swimming pool. With a pool depth up to 2m, it's great for diving, exercising, playing or just relaxing. There are extensive gardens of grassy slopes and ancient woodland that you can explore along secret garden paths. Trees on the patio and near the pool provide shade for those hot summer afternoons.
The cottage is totally private, and birds and wildlife abound in the natural woodland.
We know that you want to keep in touch, even when you're relaxing by the pool, so we have provided wifi access not just in the house but in the garden too.
In 2014 we installed a modern en suite bathroom for the master bedroom and we completely refitted the bathroom. Showers are roomy and you get a wide powerful spray, so, no dodging around to catch the drops from an inadequate shower head! Downstairs there is a full size washing machine in the WC.
There are attractive paving and railings around the pool and a second patio area with barbecue make the pool and surroundings a real feature of the property. There are sun umbrellas and sun beds for relaxing by the pool and there is lighting in and around the pool so you can enjoy the long summer evenings.
To the front of the house, an open sided barn is used to shelter the car and as a wood store.
The cottage is on the edge of a small hamlet, and although there are neighbours on one side, they do not overlook the garden, which is on the opposite side of the house from neighbouring properties.
Towels and linen are provided, and for rentals of more than a week, clean towels and linen are provided weekly. The property is cleaned between rentals.
