Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Welcome to our three beautifully restored, traditional French cottages. In the very heart of the Dordogne, South West France.
Nestled on the side of a valley, all properties offer breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. Set in 3 acres of land, at the end of a quiet country lane, there is no traffic and no noise, allowing you to enjoy the spectacular surroundings without distraction.
All three cottages have been restored to a very high standard, retaining their rustic charm while still offering you all the home comforts you will need for your stay. From the wide oak floors and original stone walls, to the beautifully renovated wooden worktops, each house has bags of charm and character that will make your stay with us truly special.
New for 2013, Le Phénix is a lovingly restored cottage full of charm and character. Originally a barn, it has been renovated to a very high standard. With a mixture of the old and the new, it has a bright and light feel to it but still retains many of its old features, such as the traditional stone walls, oak beams and a fabulous bread oven. With 2 large double bedrooms, a fully equipped open plan kitchen, comfortable sitting area and a spacious bathroom, this holiday home would suit 2 couples or a family with up to 2 children. Outside, Le Phénix has its own sunny terrace with outdoor dining area. Where you can sit with a glass of wine on a warm summers evening and enjoy the spectacular views of the valley and the surrounding countryside.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The property is just 2 miles from the sleepy village of Thenon, where you will find a bakery, supermarket, post office and a bank as well as a variety of restaurants serving traditional local dishes.
But despite the quiet surroundings, we are ideally situated for all the main tourist sites. A short drive will take you to the famous medieval town of Sarlat, the caves at Les Eyzies and Montignac, walk the cobbled streets of the ancient Roman city of Perigueux or visit one of the many chateaux near Beynac and Domme. For the more adventurous, take a canoe trip down the beautiful River Vezere or enjoy the views from the skies in a hot air balloon.
And at the end of a long day site seeing, relax in what is quite possibly one of the most tranquil places on earth. Known as the land of 1000 chateaux and the birth place of modern man, the Dordogne is a truly magical place. We hope to see you soon.
