Sevenne is our home and not just a business, it is very important to us that our guests enjoy their stay and make the most of their holiday.

Drake Cottage is perfect for walkers, golfers, cyclists, bird watchers, artists........ or why not sit by the pond or under one of the many willow trees with a good book and a glass of local wine! Sevenne is a slice of paradise! Tranquil, peacful, relaxing yet only minuites from the busy Dordogne for the more active.

How to get there
Many of the major budget airlines fly into Bergerac and both budget and schedule airlines fly into Bordeaux. Brive and Limoges airports are approximately 2 hours drive We recommend 'Buggs' car hire. when flying into Bergerac. They are family owned company and competitively priced. However, book early as they are a busy during the peak periods.
