Originally from Ireland, we moved lock, stock and barrel in 2005 selling up our business and taking the plunge to this stunning region and have never looked back, especially as this has been a wonderful area to bring up our son and with easy flights back to Ireland and to the UK we can still keep in touch with our friends and family...

Paula & Barry Grainger purchased this cottage in 2006

We kept passing this cottage on our search for our own house... but as we were looking for a 3 bedroom house, we didn't take a peek.... We knew that we wanted to run a holiday home and after staying in a few holiday homes ourselves had a good idea what we were looking for.. we knew we wanted the property to have an enclosed garden , to be on one level so small children and guests with mobility problems had easy access, to have off street parking, a view of the countryside and to be near to our favorite medieval town of Sarlat. After giving all these details to our estate agent, she pulled out the details of ' Le Pouget'... the house that we kept passing... so of course we had to take a proper look... this is when we fell in love with the cottage and could see the potential for a relaxing atmosphere for adults and a safe, fun environment for children and the added bonus of being a stones throw from our favorite medieval town..

Location, Location, Location... not only is the cottage surrounded by country side but only a stones throw from all the fantastic sights of the Perigord noir ...After refurbishing our cottage and landscaping the garden we could sit back and relax and enjoy the view of the countryside and could just imagine waking up and opening the French doors from the lounge to enjoy breakfast on the terrace or listening to the birds and watching the wildlife while enjoying a glass of wine...knowing that our son was having as much fun as we were in the enclosed garden. One of our favorite things was sitting outside in the garden on a balmy and clear Summers night when the stars are so close it feels like you can touch them... very romantic...

We had a fabulous 2 week break at Le Pouget and cannot fault it in anyway. Every little detail was taken care of and if we had found something Barry and Paula would have only been too happy to sort it out for us. The area is beautiful and we made the most of it, visiting somewhere different everyday, so much to do - so little time!! We will definetly be back and this time relax a little more in the wonderful, peaceful garden that our 3 kids loved. They were in the pool everyday and particulary enjoyed the table tennis and swings. Big thanks to Barry, Paula and Reece!

Fantastic holiday cottage

We had a fantastic stay at Le Pouget . After a long drive it was actually a first to have directions from the owners that were easy to follow and very stress free. When you arrive you get a very warm welcome and the cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Le Pouget is a great base for exploring Sarlat which is only a short drive away . Sarlat is beautiful and has a great market twice a week. Nearby Domme is equally as stunning and if you are feeling energetic we recommend hiring kayaks from nearby Vitrac and exploring the area by water. The Vitrac to Beynac route takes you past La Roque Gageac and Castelnaud which are a must see.
When you need a day off from site seeing , a game of badminton or table tennis back at the cottage followed by a dip in the pool keeps your younger members happy and finishing the day with a BBQ and a glass or two of the local wine on the terrace we found was just the prescription for a perfect relaxing holiday.
We would thoroughly recommend staying in Le Pouget and hope to return again.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. We are so glad that you had a great time and enjoyed the cottage and area and had a great time on the canoes and exploring the delights of what the region has to offer... We look forward to seeing you again...a bientot Paula , Barry & Reece

Wonderful Week

  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2011
Thank you so much for a wonderful week - all the comments from previous visitors were confirmed.... the warm welcome and all the special touches that made our stay so pleasant.

Our stay was primarily about catch up time with our daughter and a special friend - so sightseeing was mixed with much socialising. However, we made time to see gardens, the villages of Domme and Beynac... the market in Sarlat... a trip to Cahors... We all wish our stay could have been longer.... the times on Le Pouget terrace were all too short... We would love to return to discover more...

Back again !!

On our first visit to Le Poget in Aug/sept 2010 we had such a wonderful time that we rebooked for this year as soon as possible. They say "never go back", "it's never as good as you remember" Well 'they' are wrong, this visit has been even better......!!

Last year we did all the castles, trogladyte villages, caves, markets etc that are literaly within an hour of the cottage.. This year we went further afield all the way to St Emilion - a magical village 40 kms east of Bordeaux and a paradise for anyone who loves a good drop of Red Wine.... also ventured to Toulouse..... and a star visit for us this year was Brantome.. the Venice of the Perigord...and a nother gem..Cahors..
For all that, though, the holiday wouldn't be the samr without the peace and tranquility of Le Pouget to come back to.. cpoupled with the unrivalled hospitality of Barry, Paula & Reece - it just couldn't be beaten.. we will be definantly be back for this little slice of heaven...

Great fun for all ages!! Just opened is a new Zoo reserve, 2 mins away. If you fancy a day out on a canoe (great fun!) or by one of the inland beaches,( sandy and calm & shallow) we have a cool box, flasks and picnic blanket for your use. You will find also in Le Pouget an information file, with lots of brochures, maps and ideas for things to do and see in the area, and also not forgetting maps for the walking & cycling routes !
