About this property

Country Lovers Rural Idyll. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Character filled stone cottage, situated up a very quiet lane with no other houses (except the owners) in view. Overlooking it's own fields and woods where you are free to wander and relax.
 
Gleaming polished wood floors and huge stone fireplace make the lounge a lovely place to relax, cool in summer and cosy in winter with it's traditional cast iron wood stove.
 
Stone walled terraces surround the property, ideal for that relaxing morning breakfast or afternoons sipping wine in the sun.
For the more energetic there are peaceful walks in stunning countryside, straight from your door. Or hop in the car to visit any number of beautiful places nearby including medieval chateaux, the Dordogne valley, underground caverns, majestic mountains and romantic ruins to name just a few!

This is an idyllic countryside retreat - ideal for walkers, twitchers and wildlife lovers. Also great for people who love just to get away from it all - aah the peace and quiet.

However, it is great also for a base to go sightseeing the many fantastic towns, villages nearby; Argentat, Curemonte, Turenne, Rocamadour, Salers, Beaulieu-Sur- Dordogne, Sarlat to name but a few.

Your hosts are very welcoming and will sort out any problems if they should occur and are happy to recommend local walks, places to visit and local eateries to sample local produce.

It is a jewel in the French countryside - a perfect well equipped gite.
