About this property

Comfortable Spacious 2 Bed House In Medieval Village. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

Come and experience life in a typically beautiful French village close to the banks of the Dordogne River.
Tremolat is a medieval village on the Pilgrim Route to Compostela and has the typical ancient stone buildings that the area is famous for.

The local bakery is just a short walk away through the church courtyard and where you can buy fresh baked croissants and pastries for your morning breakfast. Close by is the cafe bar where you can watch the world go by while enjoying a cup of coffee and where you are welcome to sit and eat your fresh pastries in the morning, It is also a restaurant where you can enjoy a good meal at lunch or in the evenings with a nice cool beer or a glass of local wine.

The river is a 15 minute walk away and has a lovely green space for picnics and leisure. Hire a canoe or a paddle boat or even book a waterski session!

On Tuesday we have a small market on the village square where you can buy fresh vegetables and local delicacies like cheese and strawberries.

Within driving distance there is so much to see and do. Visit a chateau. Take a wine tour. Book a flight over the region for a birds eye view of the lovely countryside. Take a riverboat trip or go up in a hot air balloon! Explore any number of beautiful villages and bastide towns with their weekly markets, restaurants and shops. Book a gastro lunch at the famous Michelin restaurant just at the end of our lane. Or just laze by the pool with a good book…..
