- english, french
Over the years lots of people have asked why we decided to move to France. The only answer we have ever really been able to come up with is that ‘we fancied a bit of a change’. And that’s really all there was to it. At the time we had very little understanding of the country or its people, naively thinking, ‘How different can it be ? It’s only across the channel’. Stupid right ? But that was such a long time ago. Here we are now, 15 years later, living in a part of the world that really is truly amazing. The scenery, even after all this time, can still take your breath away. We enjoy some of the best food and wine in the world. We have the space to grow our own vegetables, rear our own animals and have settled into country life in a way that we never could have imagined. But most of all it’s the quiet that really makes a difference. Whether it’s a warm summer’s morning or a crisp winter’s day, it will always be peaceful and very very quiet. But don’t just take our word for it, come and see for yourself….
What makes this Cottage unique
What makes this property really special are the views. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine on a summers evening, watching the spectacular sunsets over the valley and the chateau, will give you holiday memories to take away and cherish forever.

Rustic Beauty in the Dordogne
Cottage is located in a very beautiful area. It has a rustic charm and is clean and comfortable. The English hosts are friendly and helpful. Take their advice on where to visit. We will return next year
Thank you for sharing. We'd love to see you guys back again next year. Its the perfect compliment that our guests want to return. See you soon.
Perfect lovely cottage for few days
Karen and Stephen welcomed us twice and we have tried both cottages which are both very nice . They respond very quickly and take good care of the cottages (we can find everything needed). We loved the beautiful view!
The situation of the place are very convenient and there is great value for money. We recommend the place to our friends and we plan to come back soon.
Thank you Tiphanie for writing about your stays with us. It is lovely that you come back to stay with us. We must be doing something right!! We look forward to seeing you again in a few weeks.
beautiful stay at a very fine location
We were here for one week and we really enjoyed it. The weather was very good and the location also. The hosts prepared everything for our vacation very well.Also they were very kindly. The location is well-integrated in the nature but also near to a lot of touristic places. We want to come back soon, because there are a lot of things we could not do in one week because there is so much. So we will definitily come back for a longer time to explore the whole area.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your stay. We hope to see you again very soon so that you get to see more of the Dordogne. Thanks again, Karen and Steve.
Wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable.
Had a marvellous stay, we were made to fell very welcome by Steve and Karen. Would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in this area.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your time here. Its great to know you enjoyed your stay and that you would recommend us. Thanks again. Karen and Steve

From canoeing to fishing, historical caves to taking a ride in a hot air balloon, there is something for everyone here in the south west of France.
Known as the birthplace of modern man, the Dordogne Valley is steeped in history and what seems like spectacular views around every corner. We are towards the south of the Dordogne, on the outskirts of the town of Rouffignac St Cernin. Close to all the main site seeing attractions and with caves in our village, we are well situated for you to explore the area and all it has to offer.
A short drive will take you to the National Museum of Prehistory at Les Eyzies. Designated a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979, it is the perfect place to start exploring the many caves in the area.
We are also close to the caves of Lascaux in Montignac, one of the first ever colour cave paintings to be discovered. A twenty minute drive to the north will take you to the ancient city of Perigueux, where you can walk the cobbled streets, enjoy the spectacular architecture and experience the lively hustle and bustle of a French market.
Heading south will take you to the area known as the Golden Triangle, stretching from the medieval city of Sarlat to the chateaux at Castelnaud and Marqueyssac. From here you can take a boat trip along the river and enjoy views of the picture perfect villages of Beynac, Domme and Roque Gageac.
If you are looking to relax and unwind, learn about the history of the area or take part in something a little more adventurous. With something for everyone, the Dordogne really is the perfect holiday destination
