About the home
Rose cottage has three bedrooms; two large doubles, (One of these can be a twin) and a third bedroom (Twin) which, although large, has some restricted head room and is therefore most suitable for babies/toddlers, two children or teenagers. The third bedroom has an adjacent WC and wash basin, it also has optional air conditioning, as does one of the double rooms.
The kitchen is equipped with cooker, dishwasher, microwave and all the other items you would expect to find in quality accommodation. The living room has a wonderful stone fireplace with wood burning stove, although this serves as a cosy feature more than a means of heating as the cottage is centrally heated (in the cooler months). It comes fully equipped including UK Satellite TV, DVD player etc.
There is a separate garden area with teak patio furniture and separate BBQ area. There is a salt water swimming pool, secured with fence. This makes the garden area safe for toddlers and children of all ages. The dedicated children's play area includes trampoline, swings and ball games. The area for toddlers and smaller children also has a Little Tikes climing frame, slide and swings.

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The Dordogne region of South-West France is one of the most beautiful and popular regions of France.
Chateaux, beautiful medieval towns and villages, unspoilt countryside and prehistoric caves are just some of the reasons why the region has been attracting visitors for many years.
The Bergerac / Montcaret area
On our doorstep, Montcaret, or 'Moncaret la Romaine' as some call it, boasts an 11th Century church. Also a Roman Villa, only partly excavated and said to be one of the best in all of France sits in the centre of the village. The mosaics are superb and these alone are well worth a visit. The cruciform gallery is said to have been the largest in the entire 5th century Roman Empire. Guided tours are available.
In 1453, Castillion la Bataille was where the last major battle of the Hundred Years war was fought. It is here also that every summer in late July and early August, a spectacular floodlit re-enactment of that battle takes place. Spread over 16 acres and involving some 800 participants, 500 of whom are actors with 50 cavalry, this is a magnificently organised and executed show. The highlight is an intense two hour battle incorporating amazing stunts and pyrotechnics.
Spend the day wandering through everyday life of the middle ages, between the farms and inns, see the puller of teeth and the hawkers before enjoying the battle. Finally, finish your day with dinner in the Medieval Inn. The festival runs for two weeks with the battles being re-enacted daily. Booking is essential for this exceptionally well organised event. For more detailed information, including dates and booking details. Please click our link for The Battle of Castillion. If all this sounds too much for you you'll be glad to hear that after hostilities have ceased Castillon la bataille returns to being a peaceful little town with an excellent market each Monday morning.
St Emilion is a truly beautiful village set into a hillside on the north side of the river Dordogne. The twelfth century town consists predominantly of old stone houses with shuttered windows and cobbled streets. Hidden beneath the town is Europe's largest underground church, a magnificent place hewn out of the soft rock by Benedictine monks in the ninth century. Louis XIV described the wines of St Emilion as the 'nectar of the gods'. At the foot of the thirteenth century chapel lies a small cave which is said to have been the home of the monk St Emilion. To this day infertile women come and sit on the stone slab reputed to have been his bed, in the hope of conceiving!
The first weekend in May sees about 20 of the local Chateaux open their doors to visitors and numerous concerts and wine tastings are held throughout the year. Particularly popular are the festivals of Fete de Printemps (June) and the Harvest (September). Recently added to UNESCO's World heritage list it would be a pity to come so near and not visit this beautiful town.
