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 Aquitaine/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.


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.

"Total Waste of Money"

We booked and paid in advance for a two week stay in Rose Cottage commencing 28 September 2013. We made our booking subject to assurances that there was no cat on the property, as my wife is mortally … More

Having just read the review from "Lady Dilberta" we would like to clarify a few points. Although we appreciate that everyone is entitled to their opinion some of the comments made are factually incorrect. Firstly, we do not allow pets in the cottage and this was confirmed to Lady Dilberta and is correct. As we have had previous guests with allergies, this is something we are strict about. However, we live next door and have a pet cat, that is an outside cat, but friendly and would not make a good "guard" cat (?). Secondly, the two bedrooms upstairs are attic rooms but do have windows. As the guests arrived late in the evening the shutters were closed! The comment about the cottage being dark and dank is misplaced as the guests arrived at night time during a rain storm. The cottage is equipped with central heating and a huge stone fireplace with woodburner, for which we provided wood to burn. Regarding the kitchen sink, this was cracked and has subsequently been replaced at the end of the season. Despite this unpleasant experience for us, as a gesture of goodwill, we refunded half of the monies paid. In the five years we have been welcoming people to our cottages from all over the world, this is the first bad review we have ever received.

"Spacious, relaxing cottage"

Warmly welcomed by Ashley and Rachel, who introduced us to the numerous facilities on offer, including swimming pool, boules pitch, bikes, trampoline etc. Cottage was very comfortable, well-provisioned. Excellent location for travel in the Perigord region, which we did every day.
