About this property

Ideal Home For Families, Couples And Single Parties. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Our holiday home is in the quiet hamlet of Douville situated between Bergerac and Perigueux.

Although it is in a peaceful location it is just 5mins drive from the nearest bakery, 10mins from nearest restaurants and 20 minutes from nearest supermarkets and Bergerac airport.

The property is not overlooked at all and you can choose to eat indoors, or outdoors, play and sunbath by the pool which will be purely for your use and watch the stars at night as there is no light pollution. There are plenty of places to walk, cycle or 'just be'.

Visitor suitability

In 2017, 2018 and now in 2019 we have had couples, families with babies up to teenage children who have thoroughly enjoyed their stay at our holiday home and in their comments on our website and facebook site you can see some of their comments.

I can also recommend the property for the elderly and people who cannot 'do' stairs as our property can be accessed through our conservatory and is all on one level.

9 / 10 Experiencing France 7 July, 2019

Lovely house in stunning surroundings. We had a quiet, relaxed week in Douville, which was just what the four of us needed.
The house was impressively well equipped, specially in the kitchen (plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses) and the little touches i.e welcome pack, was very much appreciated.
Would recommend it for anyone wanting to get away fromthe hustle and bustle of city life.
