Perfect Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A characteristic cottage equipped with everything you need, set in beautiful grounds with a lovely swimming pool. Totally private, peaceful and relaxing, we enjoyed eating 'alfresco' from our croissants in the morning through to lunch and evening supper.

Rouffignac village had all the shops we needed (especially the boulangerie Blondy's) a small carefour for anything else you need, and a couple of friendly local bars for an late afternoon aperitif.

Area is beautiful (our third time in the region) and as well as the main tourist areas, Sarlatt, Domme, Beynac etc.we also enjoyed visits to local surrounding villages from Fanlac, Saint-Leon-sur-Vezere, Plazac.

Highly recommend for a couple or family, hope to come again sometime.

The PLACE to be in Dordogne!

  • 5 of 5

Un "petit" coin de paradis dans une superbe region!

Les atouts de cette villa sont tellement nombreux qu'il me faudrait une journee pour les lister tous!

Un emplacement ideal pour decouvrir la majorite des plus beaux sites de la region. La proximite des magasins sur place est egalement un plus.

En ce qui concerne la villa, que demander de plus? Les exterieurs tres bien entretenus avec une chouette piscine chauffee, une pleine de jeu pour les enfants et une pelouse immense qu'on pourrait s'y perdre, sont sans doute le gros avantage du lieu!

L'interieur est parfait avec une salle de bain (douche) et une cuisine equipee tres pratique, une piece de vie avec bibliotheque, tv, cheminee, etc... bref tout ce qu'il faut pour passer d'agreables moments en famille.

A l'etage, vous retrouvez 2 chambres spacieuses et un hall.

Bref, un bijoux qui j'espere restera disponible de temps en temps pour qu'on puisse y retourner dans le futur;)

Merci pour ce superbe sejour... a refaire au plus vite;)

Francois Aline et louise!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, quite but not isolated, with a huge private garden and lovely heated pool. Outside, the garden is enclosed and has play equipment which our children liked almost as much as the pool! The terrace area has the benefit of having a beautiful old tree that provides shade for those who want it, but also has the sun on it all day. The house itself is brilliantly equipped with spacious rooms and modern decor. The location is perfect for exploring the area with easy access to all the major towns and sights. It benefits from being approx. 1 mile from the town giving easy access to the local shops.

Best Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little Cottage in large grounds with a great swimming pool. We had a fabulous stay. The keyholder was very quick and efficient, meeting us when we arrived and giving us all the information we needed. The cottage was clean tidy and ready for us. We spent 2 weeks here and would highly recommend it. The Dordogne is amazing and this Cottage was the perfect base to see it. Many thanks.

We really enjoyed the cottage with kids. They could play safely in the very large garden closed with high hedges providing full privacy. The pool is amazing : salty water and heated on top. Ver nice. The house is beautiful with the old tiles and stones. The house is very comfortable. Wz will come back definitively. Thanks to owners for the kindness

Great family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Home from Home , everything we needed to have a great holiday. Cottage has everything you need and very private , and all done in a stylish comfortable fashion.

Kids and us were in the heated. pool every day and we had loads of fun and games in the large grounds around the cottage.

Area is very beautiful and we took our own Kayaks and had some great times on the rivers. Hope to return in the future
