Duck 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.
