Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

The Dordogne, or Périgord, region is one of the most beautiful parts of France traditionally with fine summers. It is well known to the French for its food and wine, leading to the saying, En Périgord, on mange bien, on boit bien. As the home of truffles and foie gras, it is an area where a visitor can eat extremely well in countless excellent and inexpensive restaurants. Just east of Bordeaux, it is also noted for its own vineyards, producing St. Emillion, Bergerac, Pécharmant, and Monbazillac. For relaxing at home, local markets provide treats such as strawberries, raspberries, asparagus, walnut cake and oils, olives and cheese. The region is famous for over a thousand castles, of which most date back to the Hundred Years' War that ravaged the region in the 13th century. As the centre of prehistory in France, the Dordogne has stunning cave paintings at Lascaux, les Eyzies and numerous other sites and is recognised as a world heritage site. The museum at Les Eyzies is well worth a visit.

Sarlat-la-Canéda

Sarlat, one of the most fascinating and beautifully restored towns in France, offering the atmosphere and appearance of another age, with narrow steep alleys flanked by Medieval and Renaissance houses in honey-coloured stone tpped with massive stone slated roofs. It has more historic buildings than any other place of its size in France, and is the only town to be given three stars by the Michelin guides solely for the quality and ambience of its old town. It has one of the biggest weekly markets in France, which takes over most of the town every Saturday. There is a market on a Wednesday as well. Take a stroll through the old town on summer evenings, enjoying various 'animations' such as mimes and musicians by the gaslight lamps. All summer there are wonderful music festivals in nearby towns, while Sarlat has an open-air theatre festival in the market square in late July, the seating provides a roof top view of the stage. There is an international film festival in October.

“Bad stay”

Reviewed 30 Nov 2015

At first sight, the house looked fine and well-equipped. But on 1st night, we encounter problems with the window in one of the rooms. But the most uncomfortable was the lack of TV, and, more of all, wi-fi dis not work. I spent my week calling for somebody to fix the different problems, but no-way. May be if we had the luck to have a sunny week, the swimming pool would have helped us forget about the other points of unhappiness, but it rained most of the time, and with my 3 teen-agers, the lack of wi-fi was quite unbearable - they are so used to... People were very comtemptuous with me, they answered to my phone calls by sms, telling that if I am on a vacation, I don't need to use wifi and have just to relax... Incredible ! I'll never come back again in houses managed by this travel-agency. Please, excuse my english, it is not my usual language.

We are sorry that our guests were not completely happy with their stay. The dreadful weather here in the Dordogne this spring has not helped holidaymakers in general to make the most of their stay! To clarify the wifi issue raised in regards of internet : we never allowed us to tell you don't need to use wifi !! we had came twice to check internet and see it was working fine : we just explained that the wifi was working well for checking email and "normal" surf on internet. but indeed there is not enough signal for 3 teen agers who wished to uploads videos online at the same time. However we do really regret you have not enjoyed your stay and our services with best regards sabine the wifi was working well for 'normal" use but indeed there is not enough debit for 3 teenagers who wished to see videos on line at the same time... To reassure future guests - the pool is currently at 28°C, and the sun is now shining!!"

“Perfect!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

We arrived at the cottage after a long day travelling (having chosen to take Eurostar to Paris, the Teoz train to Souillac and then the bus transfer to Sarlat) but once we were shown around by the friendly agent we soon settled into our two week stay. We stayed at the beginning of June. We had chosen not to hire a car so every couple of days we took the 15 minute walk 'downhill' into Sarlat to stock up on goodies. The walk back 'uphill' took us about 25 minutes with a couple of breathers along the way. It is steep but we enjoy walking so took our time and treated ourselves to a cold beer on the terrace on our return back to the cottage! The cottage is set in very peaceful grounds and was perfect for us to switch off from our very busy working lives and we enjoyed watching the wildlife from the terrace. Was very pleased to see the red squirrels and great spotted woodpeckers! We loved the pool area and were lucky not to have to share it with the owners who were not staying in their house during our stay. Sarlat is very nice and we enjoyed exploring the alleyways and visiting the market. Overall, a perfect two week stay at a comfortable and clean cottage and would like to think that we will return again to Sarlat.

“You will not find a better presented home and pool”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2012

We have rented villas in France for the past ten years. This one has to be the best presented home for you to enjoy your holiday. It’s location is perfect as it is extremely peaceful and yet you are only a short stroll into Sarlat so a car is not necessary in the evening. It also has without question the cleanest and warmest pool I have ever seen. Kim and Jerry could not do enough to ensure that you have a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and although they are on site you really would not know they were there at all. Their 2 dogs are a sheer delight and are so calm and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend or use this property again
