The Aquitaine/Dordogne region


Although rurally located Lavaud is near to plenty of local attractions, including caves, chateaux, quaint villages and restaurants. With St Jean de Cole only a few minutes drive away this beautiful village has been voted as one of France's prettiest. The magnificent chateau at Jumilhac is well worth a visit along with the Venice of the Perigord - Brantome.

For the more adventurous of you then there is canoeing at Brantome or on the River Dordogne near Le Bugue.

Being just 3 hours drive away to the Massif Central for skiing and 3 hours drive to the coast those of you who wish to venture further afield can easily do so. Bordeaux is just over 2 hours drive away.

With the capital of the Dordogne, Perigueux, being only 30 mins away a visit to the old town is a must. The twice weekly market and vast choice of restaurants will make the trip one to remember.



Nearby there is horse riding, golf, fishing and canoeing, acro parc. There are also swimming lakes with beaches and waterslides.

For further details or any special requests, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We can arrange catering or cakes, restaurant reservations or baby-sitting.

Special functions with spit-roasted lamb served with all the traditional local drinks and trimmings. Photography groups, flying lessons, romantic weekends, we can organise it for you.

"Tranquil Cottage, ideal after so much sightseeing."

Lavaud Cottage is an excellent base to explore the region. We still have plenty to see so a return stay is inevitable. We did have a couple of rest days by the pool in 32 degree heat with just the sou… More

As a self-catering option the cottage is not too bad. There were some problems initially which the owners rectified during our stay. The most alarming issue was that the waste bin in the bathroom had … More

Hello Dale. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry to hear that you found the cottage accommodation “not to bad” as we truly try and offer a quality rental. Upon your arrival and on the day of your departure you had told me how lovely the accommodation had been and had commented on its lovely furnishings and said how comfortable you had been during your stay.
With regards to the iron, ironing board, and teapot I brought these over to you as soon as you requested not long after your arrival. (The hairdryer was under the bathroom sink cupboard.) You were quite right the iron and ironing board should have already been in the cottage. We do an annual stock check and the new iron and ironing board had not been added in the cottage. The bin was a total oversight whilst cleaning from the guests that had left that day. I apologised profusely at the time and changed the bin as soon as you told me, again I am extremely sorry about this oversight. The wifi and internet not working over the weekend was totally out of our control, we were waiting for France Telecom to fix the line, it was up and working Tuesday when you returned, unfortunately these are the joys of living in the French countryside.
With regards to your self catering walking holiday I was unaware you were unhappy until the day before you left when you told me. It was such a shame that you had decided not to join in with the main walking group during your second week. Every day your vehicle had left each time we passed and I had concluded you had wished to walk alone, which I quite understood. Maybe you would have had a much more enjoyable experience if you had walked with the rest of us.
We obviously want all our guests to have a great holiday here at Lavaud. I only wish you had let me know straight away that you were feeling disappointed as we would of course have done everything we could to rectify this.
