Gite | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Welcome to our lovingly restored holiday cottages. At the end of a quiet lane, nestled on the side of a valley, there is no traffic, no noise and no distractions. Despite these tranquil surroundings, we are still close to all the main site seeing attractions at Sarlat, Les Eyzies, Perigueux, Beynac and Domme. Originally barns, both properties have been recently renovated and are well equipped to provide you with everything you will need for your stay. Newly decorated and furnished, they have a bright and light feel, while still retaining some of the original oak beams and woodwork. But in all honesty, the views are what make this property really special. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine on a summers evening, watching the spectacular sunsets over the valley and the chateau, will give you holiday memories to take away and cherish forever.

One of two delightful cottages, sleeps 2, would suit a couple or a family with a young child. Situated on the side of the valley, the views from the terrace overlooking the valley and the chateau are truly beautiful.
The property includes one large double bedroom, with an American king size bed, TV with UK satellite. A fully equipped open plan kitchen and dining area. Both the living area and the bedroom open out onto a terrace overlooking the valley, where you can sit and enjoy alfresco dining. Originally a barn, the cottage has been recently renovated. Newly decorated and furnished, the cottage is fresh and bright, while still retaining some of its rustic charm with original oak beams and woodwork.
Ideally situated, the cottage is close to all the main site seeing attractions at Sarlat, Les Eyzies, Perigueux, Beynac and Domme but its peaceful location also offers the perfect ‘get away from it' all holiday.

"Ideal location for a relaxing holiday"
Stayed here for a week in July. The gite is ideal for two people on the outskirts of a small village. The view of the sunset from the property over the chateaux was a sight not to be missed. The owne… More

"Perfect for our requirements!"
We can only echo the sentiments expressed by previous reviewers of this property.
We have been holidaying in France for a number of years, but this was the first time that we have needed to visit out of season.
The accommodation was exactly what we needed. Clean, warm, comfortable and practical. The owners were helpful and friendly, and we could have asked for no more.
Probably the best testimonial we can write is that a month after this stay, we needed to return to finish off a few things, and we had no hesitation in contacting the Karen and Steve and booking up again!
As expected, the second stay was every bit as satisfactory as the first.

"Perfect holiday heaven"
Great location in lush green countryside, and 10-15min stroll to a small village with 4 restaurants/bars, 2 boulangeries, 1 excellent boucherie/traiteur and a great Carrefour for everything else. The cottage itself is an ok-sized living/dining/kitchen area + shower/loo, but has everything you need for holiday catering. The bedroom is enormous, with an equally giant and very comfortable bed. You step straight out from the living area onto a pebbled terrace with dining equipment, bbq and sun loungers. The loungers are heaven to flop on after a day canoeing, walking, river/lake swimming or plain old over-eating! For cloudy days, it's an easy drive to major prehistoric sites in the Vezere valley like Lascaux, also geological caves, chateaux, medieval towns. It's ridiculous how much there is to do here, and equally, how much the peace and quiet is so conducive to doing absolutely nothing. If you're a foodie, you'll be like a kid-in-sweet-shop, what with the local nut wines, foie gras, truffles, duck, cheese and wine etc. Steve is a good person to talk food with, and very generous with his eggs! We are already missing it all, especially Scooby, who is the best (if greediest) host anyone could wish for.

"a really wonderful place"
We had a great recreation time at Les Pachauds, for relaxing this place is perfectly calm! Thanks a lot for the nice hints like Layotte restaurant where we had a marvellous evening with an excellent dinner. We felt like home at the nice gite and its wonderful place outside.
Greetings from Cologne,
Ines and Andreas
Thank you for taking the time to write about your time here with us. Layotte is one of our favourite restaurants, so we're glad that you got to enjoy this quite unique experience too. Thanks again, warmest wishes Karen and Steve

"A little slice of heaven in the Dordogne......."
We have thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks stay at Les Pachauds. The accommodation is good and the bed is SO comfortable and huge! What we have loved so much is the peace and quiet with the amazing views.Steve and Karen are amazing and Steve has lots of local knowledge and will help you out with any questions you have. We can thoroughly recommend the restaurant in the hotel at the top of the village on the left, The Montauriol, the people are so friendly and the 'menu du jour' is amazing value. This is a great base to explore the area with so many lovely places to visit. An absolute must is a visit to Layotte restaurant, we thoroughly enjoyed that experience. Scooby is an absolute delight and loves as much fuss as you can give him, especially his ears !! Words cannot describe how beautiful and peaceful the cottage is, we would both go back in a heartbeat and will definitely be back!
The bed really is something else I know and together with the peaceful surrounding, so many guests don't want to get up !! Thank you for a great review, and hopefully we'll see you again sometime soon. Kindest regards Karen and Steve
