Holiday Rental House
Set in a tranquil country location near the border of the Dordogne in the heart of the Bordeaux wine region of south west France. We’re not sure exactly how old the cottage is, but it features on the Plan Napoleon which makes it at least 160 years old. The cottage is well equipped and furnished and sleeping up to six people over three bedrooms – one double room and two twin rooms, although please note that one of the twin rooms can also be converted to make a large king size bed. A baby cot, bed rails and a highchair can also be provided at no extra cost. There is a bathroom with bath, wet room shower, washbasin and wc, a second shower room with washbasin and shower. Also a separate wc with hand wash basin. It’s a peaceful retreat from the rigours of everyday life.

Where possible the owners have retained the old stone walls and character of the original building, which was open on two sides, except for one room which is now the sitting room. The dining room retains the openness of the original by having two large sliding windows all along one side, giving the room a light airy feel. The horseshoe shaped kitchen fits snugly into the old prune drying area. The cottage is all on one level, so no stairs to negotiate and is wheelchair accessible.
