L'Emerillon is not just an average gite, it is our second home. Sitting on the side of a peaceful, hidden-away valley, it looks out on 20 acres of meadow and woods. Birds, beautiful butterflies, wild flowers and deer are all part of the idyllic setting. The large, partly covered terrace is perfect for al fresco dining. Private heated, fenced swimming pool, with a light for midnight swims. Inside, the open plan living room is sociable and airy. There is a comfortable sofa and armchairs to curl up and read a book in, with cosy log burning stove for cooler evenings. The kitchen area was refitted in 2013, fully-equipped with cooker, fridge/freezer, double sink and dishwasher, while a shower room with W.C. contains the washing machine.You will also find a CD Player & CDs, speakers for your devices, good Wi-Fi connection, together with a good supply of books and games for fine or rainy days.

With three double bedrooms, one with a 5' double bed and en suite bathroom, and two with twin beds which can easily be pushed together to make double beds if required, the cottage comfortably accommodates groups of up to 6 people. We now have a high chair,

linen and cots can be provided at a small extra cost.

Perigord is a very special area of France, with romantic chateaux and medieval castles peppering the beautiful, lush countryside. Gaze upwards, and you will discover numerous fortified small towns and hamlets which perch on the hill-tops. There are many walled towns to the south, away from the main tourist area. You will find bustling main streets on market days all surrounded by quiet medieval backstreets. There is always a programme of local entertainments laid on, varying from magical outdoor concerts, funfairs and Son et Lumiere to informal village meals with fireworks.

The beautiful Dordogne and Vezere can be safely and leisurely explored by canoe or kayak. The famous caves at Les Eyzies and Montignac with their paintings, stalactites and ancient dwellings are also a must-see. You will find that this part of France is rich in history and there are lots of fascinating museums. There is a good guide book in the house as there is so much to try and fit into one holiday. Other activities include tennis, golf, riding and fishing all within a few kilometres.

The local markets are a must.. Alongside the usual market fare there are specialist stalls offering the local delicacies which include the exceptional walnut oil and walnut cakes, pate de foie gras, confit de canard, wines and goats cheese. We particularly enjoy the Marche Gourmand, on Thursday evenings in the summer. Long tables are set up in St Cyprien and around are numerous different food stalls where you can choose your meal. With music, dancing, even a clown to amuse the children, it is a great (and cheap!) evening out.

This cottage was the best that we've stayed in to date in France - 'we' being a family of 4, including children of 4 and 7 - it's hoped that we'll return soon.The setting was … More
