Key Info

Oustal Cottage is tucked away in a quiet lane a stones throw from the medieval town centre. The timber framed, stone and rendered house dates back to the 16th century.

Full of quaint charm with exposed beams, stone walls and original oak stairs, the cottage is comfortable with all the facilities needed for a perfect holiday.

The ground floor entrance door, the one on the right, originally this was two little houses, leads you into the front hall which has a tiled floor and gives access right to the lounge and stairs to first floor and left to the kitchen/laundry room and ground floor shower, wc.

The lounge diner has dining table for six or seven, comfy sofa and two armchairs, windows and a door to the rear, and through the arch to the kitchen and back around to the front of the cottage. Outside at the rear is a little private courtyard.

The kitchen/laundry room has a gas stove (gas rings and oven), fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, along with all the usual pots, pans, cutlery, etc.

Climbing the original oak stairs to the first floor there is a cosy library with window overlooking the town roof tops, a large old fireplace and an armchair to sit back and read one of the many books. A door off leads to the twin bedroom, bunk beds, which is at the front of the house overlooking the lane and has a sunny aspect.

Along the hall is the master bedroom also to the front of the cottage and a second double bedroom to the rear. All the bedrooms have wardrobes, dressers, bedside tables and lamps. You will also find a fan if it gets too hot in the summer. At the end of the hall is the first floor shower and wc.

Despite being a medieval cottage in a narrow back lane the house is surprisingly light and sunny. It has lots of little quirks that go along with an old property, but that is a part of the charm of the place.

Everything is within walking distance and you don't need your car. For parking you will find a place along the street at the end of the lane or any number of places not too far from the cottage.

The Dordogne region

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions of France, the Dordogne offers spectacular scenery, plenty of visitor attractions and endless opportunity to explore the great outdoors. The rolling countryside is dotted with wonderfully old world towns and villages, pretty fruit and olive groves, historic buildings and delightful cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy delicious traditional cuisine.

Hiring a car makes it easy to explore this verdant region of France.You will need more than a week or so to find your way around and explore the region´s many towns and attractions, but whatever time you spend it makes for a wonderfully relaxing holiday.

While temperatures can soar in the height of summer - from July to August - the region is generally pleasantly warm from March through to June and from late September through to early November.


Situated 20km south of Bergerac, Issigeac is a medieval village with circular walls which bear witness to its past and whose houses of stone or timber framed wattle and daubbear witness to it's centuries old origins.

Issigeac was founded in the 6th century when a Gallo-Roman villa was built, followed by a monastery.

In the 9th century a Benedictine abbey was founded and was put under the protection of the Abbey of Sarlat. In the 12th century both abbeys were given Papal Protection. Hence the presence of bishops in the village up to the French Revolution. They built the Bishop's Palace in the 17th century ; this building now houses the Tourist Office.

Today Issigeac is a small town, a pleasant place to live with a number of shops and public services. All year round a number of events are organised animating the village and attracting a large number of visitors who are drawn by the authentic beauty of the village and its uniqueness in this area of many bastides.

The cottage was glorious. Quaint as it should be, as it is as old as it is. Reminded us of the Shambles in York. The cottage was very clean and we had a wonderful welcome food package waiting for us o… More
