Holiday cottages (1236)

Get away from it all and enjoy the luscious scenery of a secluded countryside setting by booking one of these fabulous cosy holiday cottages. Choose from country cottages in England, tranquil gites in France and cottages in Wales with log fires and breathtaking views.


You may prefer to visit the splendid country of Ireland and stay in a traditional Irish cottage - enjoying long leisurely walks before soaking up the Celtic atmosphere in great local pubs. Alternatively, choose a Scottish lodge by a loch or in the mountains and relax as you marvel at the beauty of the great outdoors.


For the more adventurous, look further afield and enjoy the serenity of a country cottage in a hidden overseas location. Pick somewhere in a peaceful forest or mountain setting and enjoy long walks or energetic bike rides.

Thank you very much for your kind words. Because Le Phénix is brand new I am very happy you appreciate it as much as I do. And of course you are most welcome to come back.

I am sorry the navigation was not enough to bring you swiftly to Le Phénix. To avoid this I will make written directions, like you suggested. And yes, the Dordogne is big and one can spent many miles to see everything. But luckely highlights as Lascaux, Montignac, Sarlat, Perigueux, Les Eyzies, most of the caves and many castles are in one hour drive. Greetings from the happy crickets because the whole week (24 September) messures around 80F.
