We have three ancient cottages that are gently nestled in woodland, within a tranquil hamlet and have many original features including roman roof tiles, huge beams and authentic stone work. Planche Cottages are dwellings suited for couples....which can transform into one big house for families, groups or friends sharing.

Barefoot Cottage entertains a voluminous, well equipped kitchen that leads out to the garden where eating alfresco is inescapable. Lovely long french farm table allows you to cook, dine, spread out the sunday papers or just be artistically creative! The kitchen sink window over looks a valley of forest, farm land and lovely old roman roof tiles. A lovely deep sofa and a wood burning stove make this room complete for any time of year. There are two floors that give you an area of 60 meters squared.

Upstairs; a double bedroom with window facing the leafy garden, bathroom with bath and shower and large antique mirror.

Amenities and Facilities: hob/stove oven fridge/freezer microwave dishwasher washing machine iron/ironing board Tv for use with DVD only internet access room fans pool.

The grounds are a web of pathways leading to secluded places such as the hammocks and magical places to unwind. We are completely private, perfect to take in the hush of nature and valley beyond.

We are blessed with many great attractions, many good restaurants just minutes away, city escapes with beautiful classical architecture like Bordeaux, Perigueux, Bergerac to mention just a few . We have white sandy beaches of the lake at La Jemaye for swimming.

There are lovely walks in the area, but perhaps our favorite is the 25 minute walk to our local restaurant where we can reward ourselves with a coffee or a delicious meal. We have WIFI in all our cottages.

You will have a lot of space to retreat from the busy markets and beach rivers and it is quiet.

Each cottage has it's own outdoor area as well as the deck which is a cool 'under-the-trees' hang out. We have lots of homely comforts, a range of outdoor seats and umbrellas for the beach, and a library of different books to borrow. Here are some views of the garden, deck and pool designed to be shared by the three cottages and when a group books the whole house, they obviously get it all to themselves.

We welcome naturalists and bird or nature observers,

Our garden is really special. There are many different species of birds, animals and insects that inhabit it. We welcome naturalists, bird watchers and emtimologists.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The region is popular for its gentle rural country side with no end of country lanes that will lead you back in time. The Dordogne and the Dronne rivers meander through our hills and valleys, plentiful for swimming, canoeing, fishing or for painting!

The local food is well sort after and we are the 'Foie gras' capital, there are many dishes that make your mouth water including the 'comfit de canard'.

The attractions are varied. There are the city attractions, music, architecture, lanes, markets, art and culture. Perigueux has a beautiful mime festival yearly in august... and more. Bergerac, Bordeaux, Perigueux, Angouleme, Brantonne are all wonderful places to visit.

Or just realize the local french way to relax, go swimming, lie on the numerous river beaches that all have restaurants and bars, the french are so good at this, great parks, parking, pic nic benches shaded areas, soak up the sun or explore nature, visit the village fetes like the' Marche de nuit' (all welcome), brocants (brico-brac markets), walk, cycle, stumble upon cafe's and churches..... The caves are also a favorite we are steeped in medieval history, (the caves about an hour away).

Riberac

We are tucked into small valley in a small very french hamlet next to a cattle farm. There are woodland and country paths in all directions. Plus we are well connected to to Riberac, 10 minutes, Aubeterre 25 minutes, Brantonne 30 minutes, Bergerac 45 minutes, Perigueux, 50 minutes, Bordeaux 1 hour and ten minutes, Angouleme 1 hour. The coast 2 and half hours.

"A wonderful relaxing week in a well appointed converted farm building"

WE really enjoyed our stay. The gite looked very tumble-down from the outside, covered in ivy, and traditional Dordogne roof tiles. Inside, the kitchen was great, no need for me to have brought our own sharp knives and teapot! The living area, was fine, only a small telly to watch DVD's on, but who wants to come to the Dordogne and watch bloody Sky TV?! The splash pool was the next best thing to a larger pool, but very welcome for a dip after a hard day at the various local marketsQ
One of the owners was there, very informative and friendly.
The ever-demanding Amelia and I could't fault the place.
