Country cottage with stunning views and private pool



Updated: 27-Oct-2016

The cottage was built in 2007 and sits in an elevated position next to the 12th century church in the picturesque hamlet of Sainte Innocence ( Fonroque 2km, Sigoules 3.5 km, Eymet 5 km Bergerac Airport 12km ) . It offers all mod cons (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, TV and DVD with Freeview channels, WiFi) together with rustic features of exposed beams and a wood burner. The cottage has 1 double bedroom (with en suite WC and walk in shower) and 1 twin room, a family bathroom (with WC, bath and shower) and a large,airy open plan living area and kitchen. It is perfect for couples or families alike. There is a covered outdoor terrace with stunning views over the surrounding vineyards and sunflower fields, and a further south-facing terrace with barbecue. The decked pool area is shielded by a low hedge offering privacy, and looks out over the rolling Dordogne countryside.The property is situated in a large plot offering ample room for outdoor games of cricket, football etc and to enjoy the local wildlife, but given its central location does not feel isolated. For those wishing to explore the surrounding villages and make the most of the quiet country lanes, there are two adult mountain bikes to use.

There is plenty to enjoy in this area of France beyond the property with weekly markets in many of the villages, wine tasting in the local vineyards and fantastic food in the cafes and restaurants. During July and August there are a number of evening markets with a lively atmosphere The area enjoys a rich history and there are many chateaux within a short drive. Larger towns of St Emilion, Bordeaux, Sarlat and Perigueux are less than an hour and a half away. For a more active holiday, there are numerous places to hire canoes on the Dordogne and some excellent golf courses are nearby.

Nice house in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 17 nights at the house which is well equipped and comfotable. The location at St. Innocence is excellent. Very close to Sigoules; not far from both Eymet and Bergerac and within easy driving distance of many of the Bastide towns. Views from the property are excellent and we had some spectacular sunsets. Kids will enjoy the pool!

The owner is very helpful and quick to respond to emails.

Perfect. Stunning, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

2nd time staying here. Lovely house in great location. We never tired of the views from sunrise to sunset - absolutely beautiful.

The pool is possibly the best one we've been in. Perfect depth and size.

We got the sun absolutely all day and the rear canopy was very welcome for some shade, and I think we are every single meal there. Gathered round the big table.

Barbecue area was brilliant too, and some stunning sunsets witnessed from the lovely little seat in front of the house, made even more enjoyable with a glass of local wine.

Perfect little house with all the equipment you need for your stay. Lovely rural location, but not too far from villages for shopping and markets.

Owners lovely -very helpful

Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Delightful gite in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and comfortable property with everything you might need. Peaceful location with many interesting places to visit in the area. I would specially recommend visiting the Sunday market at Issigeac, Chateau Duras and of course Eymet, where there are several lovely places to eat. The weather wasn't good when we were there and it would be even more beautiful bathed in warm sunshine! We definitely want to return and would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic house in a beatiful setting, fully private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in a beautiful house with all amenities, cool, new and everything was working as it should be. The setting of the house is ideal, on top of a hill, overlooking wineyards, the view was amazing and according to the pictures.

The pool was very private as well with bushes around them. The area was very nice with a lot of small villages and their markets within reach. The house itself is at a remote location which is excellent, because if you are looking for crowded places they are not far away. Mass tourism has not yet reached this part of the Dordogne.

I would definetely recommend this house to everybody, the owners are very friendly indeed.
