A 3 bed cottage in a small hamlet of 5 houses right on the banks of the river Dordogne. There is no though traffic apart from the occasional bike or tractor! It has a kitchen/diner with wood burning stove, two living rooms and a shower room/WC on the ground floor. Upstairs two double bedrooms (king size beds, one with a washbasin) overlook the river with a large twin bedded room (additional single available) overlooking the garden at the back. Whilst not a deluxe, hi-tech renovation the cottage is fully furnished and equipped and WiFi is available. The garden behind the cottage is approx half an acre of grass and woodland. The part closest to the house and the pool area is securely fenced. The pool is behind the owner's cottage next door. Holiday makers have exclusive use from 09.00 to 18.00 and evening use by arrangement. It is 5 x 11 metres / uniform 1.4 m deep and has an electrically operated security shutter. The pool is heated if necessary when in use - May to September inclusive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived very late evening to a great welcome from Jenny and Peter. The welcome pack was comprehensive and generous with lovely local produce. The whole house is spacious and comfortable and is full of character. The kitchen is very well equipped with every conceivable implement to hand. The patio area is furnished with table and chairs and from here we enjoyed watching the swans, herons and buzzards and just taking in the views of the river. The pool and pool area is very well looked after and gets full sun all day long if you want to top up your suntan. We couldn't find fault with anything. We were visiting the area for a family wedding at Chateau Soulac and would strongly recommend this property to future wedding guests as it is less than 10 minutes from the venue. Loved it!

Great cottage, lovely area :)

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Jenny's place for a wedding and it was perfect. Jenny was kind enough to stock the fridge with essentials and her husband offered to drive us back to the wedding venue the following day to retrieve our car (so we didn't have to drive home after the wedding)! Lovely area, lovely stay. I would highly recommend!

Peaceful, well-equipped cottage, great pool

  • 4 of 5

We found this property to be very much as described. It's a great location for a peaceful holiday right next to the Dordogne river. The cottage is well equipped with everything you'll need. The owners are just next door and are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The main things we enjoyed were the lovely main bedrooms overlooking the river and the excellent pool. When you have two teenage daughters it's great to have two showers too!

Although not central to the Dordogne area, it is very close to St. Emilion and Bergerac and lots of other small villages and chateaux. If you want to venture further afield then Bordeaux (use the excellent park and ride) and Arcachon to the West are within fairly easy reach, as are some of the main Dordogne attractions to the East.

As described in the listing, it's an older property rather than a modern refit, but it is quite quaint, sufficiently spacious (especially the bedrooms) and clean.

We would visit again and would look forward to enjoying morning coffee and croissant looking out over the river again!

Super holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned after an excellent week with children and grandchildren. Rustic typical French house with an excellently equipped kitchen and UK TV. Beautiful and quiet location right by the river. Kids spent most of the week in the pool which was warm and clean. Our hostess Jenny went out of her way to help and assist with whatever we wanted to do and Hoolie the dog was great fun. Would thoroughly recommend it for a family holiday.
