The Owner Recommends

Things to do when not lying around the pool.

Ayen is a small village on the Correze/Dordogne border 20 kms north west of Brive-la-Gaillarde. The departement of the Lot is only 20 kms away. Locally many walks - not for the faint-hearted as this area has magnificent views hence hills and valleys! The list of tourist sites to visit is exhaustive with everything from the 2nd most visited tourist spot in France - Rocamadour; to Pompadour - home of the National Stud; Lascaux; listed villages; museuems, pavement cafes, fishing, lakes with sailing and water ski-ing etc. etc. etc. Fantastic bird watching. Night sky superb.

A wonderful welcome from Dawn into a lovely old country cottage. The 'spectacular views' was no exagerration and we could have spent the entire holiday lazing around and in the pool! The area has so many incredible tourist spots to visit that a week was way too short!

The small village of Ayen has everthing and more that you could need and is within walking distance -very useful after the night at the local farmer'smarket!

We will be back! Thank you!
