About Paula & Barry Grainger
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
Why Paula & Barry Grainger chose Sarlat la Caneda
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..
What makes this cottage unique
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...
Guestbook comments from the owner
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...
