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.

"Quiet, Comfortable, Convenient"
We stayed in the "Old Barn" rather than the "Sunset Cottage," but I believe they are rather similar. We had a very pleasant stay. The gite was very comfortable and well-appointed. We had no difficulty getting "settled in. The location is superb - just on the outskirts of a pleasant small town. Country quiet with beautiful stars while close enough to conveniences and handy for exploring the whole Dordogne area - then coming away from the bustle of the tourist areas to a quiet, comfortable retreat.
Only a couple of minor inconveniences: The wifi was "dicey" at best, sometimes unavailable at all. Payment was required as international bank transfer which added both inconvenience and expense.
All-in-all, a nearly ideal base for a Dordogne vacation.

From the minute of booking Karen and Steve were very helpful and informative. The cottage is right at the end of the lane so is very quiet and peaceful with a lovely view over the fields and towards the chateaux.It is also well placed for visiting many of the attractions of that area.As the weather was a bit damp at times it was lovely to turn on the heaters which quickly made the cottage warm and cosy. There is a carrefore store at the end of the road which stayed open all day which was very handy. There is a local market on Sunday morning in Rouffignac which is worth a look at. St Leon Surn Vezere is a very pretty village to visit.

"A charming cottage"
We spent a great week in this cozy and well-equipped cottage very centrally located in Dordogne. Steve gave us lots of tips on places to go. His art decorates the cottage. Steve and Karen were wonderful hosts and we would definitely return for another stay.
