Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

"The Dordogne is for many people the picture-perfect image of the French countryside, a gentle landscape of patchwork firels, hiltop towns, turreted masions and jade-green woods. The Dordogne is famous for its stunning cave paintings as well as for its many fortified chateaux and bastide towns, reminders of the bollody battles waged her during the middle ages and he hundred years war"

Cenac et St Julien

Cenac/Domme is well positioned for exploring the chief sights of the Dordogne valley, with its amazing castles, stunning gardens and breathtaking views all within a 5 mile drive. This beautiful town is at the top of the hill from our picturesque village house.

About Domme :
"On the edge of a cliff, Domme offers a vast panorama over the Dordogne valley. Enclosed by walls, this bastide village founded by Philip the Bold in 1283, tells of its glorious past through its fortified gates and towers, where Knights Templar were once imprisoned. The visitor will also discover the consuls' and the goldsmiths' houses, the old covered market and the governor's hotel. Domme offers the green luxury of its suspended gardens above the Dordogne valley.
“Domme is a dream. It is a perfect little town, beautiful at first sight, even more beautiful when being visited and explored. Anyone would wax lyrical about it and for beauty it beggars description. It stands like a jewel in golden stone, on a tall hill, overlooking a switchback, winding road that heaves itself up through a just wide enough gateway and into the outer square of the town.” (Neal Lands “History, People and places in the Dordogne”).

The village of Cenac has two bakeries a butcher, cave (wine bar), fresh fruit and veggie shop and a supermarket, two taverns, a TABAC, chemist, doctor, hairdresser, laundry mat and butcher shop . So a quick stroll every morning will get you your fresh croissants and baguettes, meat, fruit and veg and treats for the day

“Too noisy”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2015

Les propriétaires australiens sont très sympathiques et leur gîte est très personnalisé, avec beaucoup d'accessoires pratiques dans la maison. Néanmoins, nous avons été déçus par le manque d'isolation des chambres (phonique et thermique) qui a rendu le séjour peu reposant. La chambre du sous-sol n'est pas terminée : plaques d'isolant aluminium au plafond sans raccords placo dans les angles et porte en bois d'origine donnant sur la rue avec de gros jours sur les côtés. Résultat : réveillés très brutalement à 6h du matin les lundi et jeudi matins par les passages successifs et tonitruants de deux camions-bennes à 1,50 mètre du lit!!! C'était flippant. On n'a pas l'impression d'être dans une vraie chambre. A l'étage, l'isolation est un petit peu meilleure, mais là aussi, les huisseries méritent d'être changées : lumière, bruit et chaleur passent facilement. Il y a eu beaucoup de circulation de part et d'autre du gîte pendant notre séjour : beaucoup de voitures descendant de Domme, mais surtout beaucoup de vélomoteurs et de camionnettes montant du village. Très désagréable, car la rue monte raide et les moteurs ronflent sous votre nez. LA localisation du village est en revanche très appréciable, car il y a beaucoup à faire et visiter dans les environs.

“Transported to another time and place”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2014

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in this 14th century house, overlooking the quaint and beautiful village of Cenac. We truly felt transported to another time and place. The house was roomy, clean, and very comfortable. It had everything that we needed for our stay. The hosts were thoughtful in setting everything up for travelers. We would stay here again.

“magical”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2014

stayed for one week in july 14. did not want to leave ! The hosts have been excellent to deal with. The house is wonderful. Very quirky but comfortable and well equipped and in the most fabulous location , walk to the shops, bars, river . short drive to all local attractions. The local area is magical with castles,gardens,historic towns and wonderful scenery. This is a hidden gem. we shall return. Mike and Nicki.

Thanks guys, glad you had a great time, see you next time, Cheers Graeme & Lisa

“Great location, perfect house for a holiday.”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2012

The house is located in a small village that has a supermarket, 2 * Boulangeries, 2 * butchers, chemist, fresh produce shops, post office and 3 or 4 hotels with restaurants. The house itself has all the amenities that you would need to be self contained if you want to cook at home. It also has satellite TV so you can catch up on the News in English. The house is comfortable and clean and has great views across the mountains. It is ideally located within walking minutes of the village and a walled city - Domme and the Dordogne river. You can hire canoes at the river. We were there for 2 weeks and spent each day driving to different attractions and we didn't have enough time to do it all! We would definitiely use the house again if we went back to the area.

Thanks for the lovely review, hope to see you again soon.

“Thoroughly enjoyable - will do it again!”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2012

House is situated within village of Cénac and an easy walk to all shops and facilities including the weekly market (Tuesday am) which is a must. Adequately equipped kitchen and laundry mean that you can eat in (on the small terrace watching the sunset) and keep your washing up-to-date; or visit one of the local bar/bistros; or walk up to Domme to eat at one of the restaurants there. The owners provided two bikes which made cycling along the river valley relatively easy and more enjoyable than driving... We rode to Daglan and back (35km) and Beynac (18km). Cénac is a great base for taking a canoe trip down the Dordogne; hot-air ballooning from La Roque Gageac; or short drives (Sarlat, Montpazier, Montfort, Limieul...) or further afield. The house is well equipped with wi-fi Internet and TV although we never switched it on.. Spacious main room and bedrooms provide plenty of room to move about - no danger of claustrophobia! We stayed for 11 nights but we'll be back for a fortnight next time around...

Thanks for the great review, hope to see you again soon.

“location, location, location”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2011

if you have a little car, especially with a GPS, this is the fabulous location, comfortable, cosy and right in the middle of everything you want to see without feeling crowded.

Thanks for the great review, hope to see you next time you are in the Dordogne.
