A charming, rural, peaceful 1 bedroom cottage

Adjoining a small working dairy farm, Le Petit Fournil was originally the central bakehouse here in the little hamlet of La Meynardie. Just 3 km from the bustling ancient town of Mareuil sur Belle, yet set in the heart of one of the most beautiful of National Forests it is the perfect location for enjoying stunning walks, cycling amongst fields of sunflowers, exploring the many forest tracks or simply relishing with a picnic, the peace and tranquillity found in this picturesque region of South West France.

This beautiful little bakehouse is the perfect romantic 'hideaway' for two! Being carefully redesigned and sympathetically furnished, it permits guests to enjoy all the pleasures of an open-plan, character filled country retreat with the integration of all modern-day amenities. A south facing terrace overlooks the meadow and lakes beyond.

Climate in South West France: In this corner of France we are generally regarded as enjoying a 'Micro Climate'; tucked well into the Bay of Biscay and generally out of the way of weather fronts coming up from the Atlantic. They say we have the second highest levels of sunshine in France and certainly you'll find the light is always clear and fresh. Spring comes early and temperatures can be in the 20's from March onwards: the skies are a piercing blue while the migrating birds pass overhead. Summer sees temperatures peaking on occasions up to 40 degrees, when, thankfully, the pool is there to keep you cool! Autumn is another wonderful time of the year in this Perigord region when colours of the autumn trees and hedgerows are exceptionally beautiful and the days are warm but the nights take on a chilly air. Even winter brings a quiet and sometimes cold air, misty days where the scent of burning oak hangs over the valleys until the sun burns through the winter skies and Spring is just around the corner.

Activities : BEACHES AND WATER PARK: River beaches: Aubeterre which is Approx 20 miles away has a lovely river beach with grassed play area, cafe and restaurant. St Aulaye (20 miles) has the same, together with water slides! Water park: 40 mins away in Augouleme, Nautilis water park with 50m indoor pools, diving pools, outdoor and indoor slides, wave machines. Large lake for fishing & water sports.

The Dordogne region

Discover the Dordogne; it's captivating medieval towns and it's romantic little bastide villages tucked away in the rolling hills and forests, alongside gently meandering rivers and pre historic caves. With a lovely climate enjoying generous levels of warm sunshine from spring right through to autumn, this is a region that can be thoroughly enjoyed throughout the whole year. Make this pretty gite your base whilst visiting the many colourful markets for locally produced foie gras, truffles, goats cheese and strawberries to mention just a few - not forgetting the excellent Bergerac wines of course! You'll find fabulous restaurants where all these delicacies and more, to suit all tastes, are served to perfection!
