About the property

Relaxing Country Cottage

La Fourquerie is a Country Gite Cottage set in the heart of the beautiful countryside in the Dordogne area of France. It is run by an English couple who are offering a 'Home from Home' holiday, but in France. You will be staying in your own complete Gite Cottage. The area is less than 30 minutes from Bergerac Roumaniere Airport, but you would never know as it is in this lovely part of France. There are lots of local activities which include horse riding, cycling and walking. Travel a little further a field and will find many things to do and visit including areas of natural beauty, buildings of historic interest, caves and wonderful French villages and towns. The owners aim to give you the holiday that you want, by making you feel welcome and helping organise all your activities. If you are looking for a holiday where you can relax and enjoy the pleasantries of the French countryside then look no further.

About Wendy & Nick Osborne

A Family of four - 2 adults and 2 children with our horses and chickens emigrated to France to enjoy lovely weather and the beautiful countryside, which reminds us of our childhood in Sussex and Gloucestershire. World travelled and having previously worked in the UK in the consumer electronics industry and restaurant business we understand how important holidays are, and getting it 'right' for our guests - the balance between relaxation-enjoyment - value and quality.

Wendy & Nick Osborne purchased this cottage in 2005

Fabulous holiday in rural France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (end of September to early October) at this lovely property. We have been coming to France for many years and are fortunate to have stayed in some truly wonderful places....but we have to say that without doubt, Wendy and Nick's place was the very best. The setting is perfect and the property itself was clean, well equiped and comfortable. If you are thinking of a holiday in the Dordogne, we would recommend this property.

Excellent customer service!
