Why this location? La Marotte is a very typical perigourdine fermette (small farmhouse) but set in a village with amenities and perfectly situated to explore, not just the beautiful Dordogne region, but also the stunning Lot et Garonne.
Unique benefits of property There are lots of holiday homes set in pretty villages throughout the region bu very few with a private, heated swimming pool.

The perfect small house! It was extremely comfortable with great beds and sofas, a small, functional kitchen, three toilets and two bathrooms. The terrace was perfect; small and covered with a dining table and views over the rolling countryside. The pool is impeccably kept with comfortable loungers and seating areas.
The only slight downside was the road was very close and local farm traffic shudders by a lot in the mornings.
The situation is great with a good local eatery (Chez Edith) and the very posh MIchelin place in the village as well a bakers. Local towns are stunning and easy to reach including the bastide towns. There are lots of local activities including parcour, swimming lakes, canoeing etc to keep teens happy. The river Dordogne with it's wonders is about a 45 minute drive away.
The very best thing is the hosts who are incredibly welcoming and ensure absolutely everything is in place for guests comfort. They are on hand and friendly but never intrusive.
It is very good value for money and I would recommend it unreservedly.
