The Little House
About the home
The beautiful Little House is situated in the medieval quarter of Salignac-Eyvigues near Sarlat. Purposely designed for two people it makes for an ideal romantic retreat. 'Mod-cons' have been integrated with the old features of the building, allowing holiday makers to relax amongst modern comforts whilst enjoying the ancient atmosphere of the village and property.
There are many gentle activities such as golf, tennis and horseriding in the vicinity and many sightseeing opportunities for those wishing to see a little more of the area. Restaurants are everywhere in the area and food ranges from a 12 euro 3 course meal to Michelin Star quality cuisine. The area relies heavily on local produce including excellent foie gras. Needless to say, the wine is wonderful!

The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
Dordogne is often cited as one of the most romantic regions in France. Towns and villages nestle amongst the rolling green hills and forests, rivers and caves that are all to be found in this stunning landscape. The climate is every bit as pleasant as you would imagine for this region with generous sunshine from spring right through to autumn.
The area still relies heavily on agriculture and is famed for its local produce including excellent foie gras, truffles, goats cheese, strawberries and wine. Dordogne is full of culinary delights not to be missed with colourful markets where local producers sell their wares and wonderful restaurants where seasonal delicacies are served to perfection
The Sarlat / Salignac-Eyvigues area
It may be tempting not to stray far from the Little House with its stunning views and charming relaxing atmosphere and indeed you do not need to go far what with a baker, butcher, grocer, bar, bank and restaurants all within one or two minutes easy walk.
However it would be a shame to miss out on everything else this area has to offer. Sarlat is just 17 km away. Easily recognisable as a backdrop for several films this beautiful cite holds its market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It is full of fine architecture, restaurants and cafes. The prehistoric sites of Montignac and Les Eyzies (home of the prehistoric museum of Europe) are also well worth a visit.

16 Jun 2012
Finding the Little House (not so little!) down a tiny lane in a charming village was the hardest part of the trip, driving on the wrong side of the road aside! The house is well-provisioned, beautifully restored and in a stunning setting - overlooking the 12th century castle, only a short walk from a real French village with boulangerie, boucherie, town square and a tiny Tabac-shop selling THE best coffee.... Not to mention the Crouzel family's foie de gras factory (great for consumption AND gifts). Hosts Mike and Yolanda are thoughtful, informative, and the location an ideal base to explore Perigord Noir. We plan to be back!
