Perfect relaxed family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday exploring the dordogne. It was made all the more memorable by our stay in Rose Cottage. A very generous sized holiday cottage, bright, airy, clean and obviously recently benefiting from a first class renovation....... we especially enjoyed the comfy beds. With a fully equipped kitchen, it was simple to create meals in minutes for our whole family with plenty of room for guests. We enjoyed the log fire in the evening with a local glass of vino. We had great fun using the selection of bikes to explore the immediate vicinity. We have already booked our return visit in the summer months to take advantage of the beautiful grounds and swimming pool.

St Emilion is a truly beautiful village set into a hillside on the north side of the river Dordogne and is approximately 25 minutes drive. Castillion la Bataille is approximately 10-15 minutes drive from the property and offers a fantastic re-enactment of the famous last battle of the 100 year war each year in late Jul - early Aug.

Further Details:

On our doorstep, Montcaret, or 'Moncaret la Romaine' as some call it, boasts an 11th Century church. Also a Roman Villa, only partly excavated and said to be one of the best in all of France sits in the centre of the village. The mosaics are superb and these alone are well worth a visit. The cruciform gallery is said to have been the largest in the entire 5th century Roman Empire. Guided tours are available.

In 1453, Castillion la Bataille was where the last major battle of the Hundred Years war was fought. It is here also that every summer in late July and early August, a spectacular floodlit re-enactment of that battle takes place. Spread over 16 acres and involving some 800 participants, this is a magnificently organised and executed show. The highlight is an intense two hour battle incorporating amazing stunts and pyrotechnics.

Spend the day wandering through everyday life of the middle ages, between the farms and inns, see the puller of teeth and the hawkers before enjoying the battle. Finally, finish your day with dinner in the Medieval Inn. The festival runs for two weeks with the battles being re-enacted daily. Booking is essential for this exceptionally well organised event. After hostilities have ceased, Castillon la bataille returns to being a peaceful little town with an excellent market each Monday morning.

St Emilion is a twelfth century town consists predominantly of old stone houses with shuttered windows and cobbled streets. Hidden beneath the town is Europe's largest underground church, a magnificent place hewn out of the soft rock by Benedictine monks in the ninth century. Louis XIV described the wines of St Emilion as the 'nectar of the gods'. The first weekend in May sees about 20 of the local Chateaux open their doors and numerous concerts and wine tastings are held throughout the year - Fete de Printemps (Jun) and the Harvest (Sept). Recently added to UNESCO's World heritage list it would be a pity to come so near and not visit.
