Cottage de La Tour Sarlat
About the home
The cottage at La Ferme de la Tour is sunny and spacious with stunning views from every room, sleeps two to five people in comfort and is immaculately presented. Set in 2 1/2 acres of park like gardens with a large chlorine free pool. La Ferme de La Tour is an ensemble of beautiful old buildings, lovingly restored and dating back to the 16th century. Surrounded by magnificent countryside, a network of pretty footpaths and a neighbouring historical chateau, the cottage is the perfect base from which to explore the most beautiful region of Dordogne and Lot.
The breathtaking valley views and surrounding grounds of woodlands and meadows will overwhelm you with a feeling of peace and tranquility disturbed only by the abundance of wildlife and the occasional distant tractor. The pool, which is bathed in sunshine from dawn to dusk, is perfectly sited to maximise the views, enabling you to relax and admire the ever changing colours of the Dordogne valley. We welcome families and couples alike but sorry, we do not cater for children under 5yrs. We do not accept pets. Friendly but un-intrusive owners live on site.
