The first floor contains the kitchen/breakfast room, the living room and the dining conservatory. The main terrace of the house is also accessed from the first floor and has a retractable awning making it perfect for al-fresco dining all day long.

The second floor contains the final two bedrooms and family bathroom. One bedroom is a double and the other can be either a double or a second twin.

Further details outdoors

The private swimming pool is a delight in the hotter summer months so we open the pool from the beginning of June until the end of October.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

The Lot et Garonne and south Dordogne area of France offers the perfect combination of things to do and see, a perfect place to relax and unwind, and lots of interesting things to see.

In the region you will find chateaux, including Bonaguil, Beynac and Biron; medieval towns, including Domme, Belves, Monpazier and Sarlat; caves, including those at Domme; unspoilt countryside, rivers and caves, beautiful gardens and small unspoilt villages - several classed as 'most beautiful villages in France'.

Much of the most beautiful rural architecture in France, or perhaps to be found anywhere, is to be seen here - ancient houses, barns, pigeonniers and churches simply form part of the unchanging landscape.


Masclat has two bars, both with restaurants serving good country French cuisine, a general store and boulangerie and a tennis court.

The village of St Julien de Lampon is just 2km away from La Piniere. It has a weekly market selling fresh local produce. The village also has an excellent butcher, general store, boulangerie / patisserie, newsagent, pizzeria, restaurant, doctors, dentist, and hairdressers.

Places to visit:

Sarlat the historic market town has an abundance of restaurants, cafes and bars. Also 'tout les commerces', supermarche, banks, pharmacies, doctors, dentist and an excellent hospital. Street entertainment for all the family during the summer evenings. There is a picturesque market on a Wednesday and Saturday in the centre of the old part of town, Place de Liberte.

Beynac and its castle are undoubtedly one of the finest sites in France. The village is built in stages above the waters edge at the bottom of a 150 meter cliff topped by an impressive fort.

Gourdon is a bustling local town with great shopping and eating options. There is also a 'Plan d'eau' just outside the town (en route to Sarlat) with a small beach and children's playground.

The river Dordogne has produced the superb limestone cliffs for which the Dordogne is famous. With its innumerable Châteaux towering over water and the picturesque riverside villages including Montfort, Castelnaud, Vitrac, Domme and La Roque Gageac it is the most splendid stretch of France's most beautiful river.

A canoe or kayak can last as long as you like and its shallow waters are completely safe for young children and beginners alike.

Montignac on the banks of the Vezere owes its fame to the discovery of the 'eighth wonder of the world' the Lascaux cave. Thought to date as far back as 15000 BC the Lascaux cave discovered by four small boys in 1940 is the finest of all prehistoric painted caves.

La Roque Gageac recently awarded the enviable title of the most beautiful village in France and is the third most visited site in France after Mont-Saint-Michel and Rocamadour.

Les Eyzies commonly introduced as the worlds prehistoric capital. Visit the market that stretches along the riverside, the cafes and restaurants and the Musee National, France's richest prehistory museum.

La Bugue surrounded by wooded hills and built in terraces on the bank of a bend in the river Vezere, this little town is referred to as the golden gate to prehistory. A large, remarkably equipped aquarium museum, the Bara-Bahau cave, Saint Cirq du Bugue, the prehistoric site of La Farrassie and the castle at Fleurac are close by.

Rouffignac gives you the chance to take a journey to the centre of the earth by visiting the Grotte des cent mammoths [the cave of the hundred mammoths] by a little electric train. This vast cave has never been closed and has been receiving visitors since the 16th century.

Rocamadour, a gem of a place and your stay in the Dordogne would not be complete without a visit here.
