Sarlat la Caneda Bungalow Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom bungalow in a small hamlet in the heart of the Dordogne countryside
“Petit Reve” is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Braulen Haut with splendid views of the surrounding Dordogne countryside. It is just 10 minutes drive from Sarlat, which is regarded as the tourist capital of the Perigord Noir, and within easy reach of the many attractions in the area.
Guests say the spacious covered patio and pool, right next to the house, are key strengths of our property. Whether relaxing with a good book, sunbathing, dining ‘al fresco’ or having fun in the pool, you have the perfect facilities you need for an enjoyable holiday. The garden has grassed areas where children can play safely.
Indoors, the rooms are modern and light. The lounge has plenty of space for relaxing and dining, as well as a TV that receives the range of English channels on Freeview, and a DVD player. WiFi available. The three double bedrooms ensure that sleeping arrangements are kept away from the rest of the house.
It’s modern living in a beautiful rural setting!
By car – Takes about 8 hours, in one stint, from Calais. Find the A20 motorway heading south to Limoges and Brive. Take the exit 55 for Souillac, just south of Brive, and the house is about 25 minutes away. We’ll send you clear directions.
By air – If you do not fancy the drive, there are cheap flights available from various British airports to Brive (30 mins) NEW RYANAIR SERVICE FROM STANSTEAD TO BRIVE begins April 2014, Bergerac (90 mins) and Limoges (2hrs) where you can hire a car. If you are prepared to travel light, the cost of flights + a hire car can be much cheaper than driving, particularly out of season. My last 9-day visit, November 2013, Liverpool to Limoges, flights = £38 (Ryanair), parking at airport = £40, hire car = £190 (VW Polo).

About Kathy Waters
We had camped and caravaned near Sarlat since 1987. We fell in love with the area almost immediately. The beautiful villages and country markets; the stunning scenery; the wide range of events and activities, particularly in the summer. So ... we decided to buy a house.
Kathy Waters purchased this bungalow in 2003
Why Kathy Waters chose Sarlat la Caneda
We wanted a property that would be easy to maintain and great for summer holidays with our family; it had to be fairly near Sarlat, because it's the most fantastic town; and it had to be in a peaceful rural setting. It took us almost two years to find the right house, but 'Petit Reve' (Little Dream) fulfilled all our needs, and more!
What makes this bungalow unique
Location, location, location! Braulen Haut is a very sleepy hamlet, but it's smack bang in the centre of the most beautiful tourist area. Ten minutes to Sarlat (follow my route on the back roads to avoid the summer traffic), five minutes to the river, and close to lots of the main tourist attractions in the area. Ironically, as we've seen it all, we're not great sightseers now. Give me a cold beer, a game of petanque, a dip in the pool and a good meal, and that's my idea of a great day!
