The quintessential French countryside holiday

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage offers everything to make one's stay very comfortable by providing all the modern conveniences, yet having the French countryside literally at your doorstep. We loved sitting outside our cottage in the evenings with a glass of wine and being entertained by all the birds and sounds from the frog pond and distant farms filling the air, while viewing the grandest of sunsets. Picturesque and truly relaxing.

From the Owner

It was an area we knew well and Perigueux is a great attraction with its medieval city, Roman ruins and Renaissance centre. The strawberries grown in the local area are lovely too! There are plenty of castles and chateaux to explore, canoeing on the Dordogne and Vezere rivers, and of course the gastronomic delights served in many of the local restaurants.
