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...

We'll be back!!
  • 5 of 5
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!

A beautiful, well kept property

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful property which is excellently maintained. It had everything we needed and more, including indoor and outdoor toys for our toddlers, a gorgeous outdoor dining area with bbq and lovely views across the fields. The facilitates were great including outdoor plunge pool, well equiped kitchen and comfortable bedroooms. The bungalow is in an excellent location with some attractions only 5 mins down the road while others well worth the 20 minute car journey. For hiking and walking there are footpaths and routes from the ,doorstep. Sarlat only 10 minutes down the road, has many wonderful places to eat, as well as good shopping and a range of supermarkets. Barry was an super host, welcoming and willing to put our needs first from the moment we arrived. We really appreciated him offering us his support and guidance on local information. I would highly recommend this property, an excellent base from which to explore the Dordogne.

Fantastic holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5
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.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six (two adults and four children) visited Le Pouget in April and had a perfectly wonderful time! In advance of our trip, Paula and Barry sent us information so that we could plan fun activities. They also met us at the bungalow upon arrival to answer any questions and make sure we had all that we needed. The weather was beautiful and we were able to make ample use of the pool, table tennis and patio. With four small children, we especially appreciated the many toys and activities they had in the house. The lodging was very clean and well-maintained. Paula, Barry and Reese were fabulous hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting with them. We would highly recommend this rental home for a holiday...everything was perfect!

Want the best? Book Le Pouget

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic place to stay, offering all the comforts of home and much, much more. Le Pouget has everything you could wish for to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. It is in a great position to explore the area and there is so much to visit and enjoy.
The plunge pool is wonderful after time out exploring, to be able to cool off and just relax is to die forr.
Paula could not have been more helpful to us, managing, what turned out to be a difficlut task, getting tickets for one of the cave sites for us.
Paula, Barry and Reece are fantastic people who you instantly want to become friends with. Their only thought is to make your stay the best that you can.
I had already recommended Le Pouget to friends back home, even before I stayed there, and after questionning me on my return, they have booked in for two weeks next summer.
It is a place that I wish I could have bought as we were so happy there. It set me a real challenge to find somewhere comparable to book in a different area of France for next year.
If you want peace and quiet and a truely fantastic place to stay, then book Le Pouget and you will not be disappointed.

Notes:
Our Cottage is on one level and set inside approx 2000 sq m of enclosed garden & is perfect for families with young children who don't want them wandering off! Our pool is over ground & the steps are re-movable for safety. For children we have swings, a play house, paddling pool, pool toys, & they can scream and shout as much as they want only the sheep can hear! And of course for the 'Older Children'!- Badminton, Boules, Outdoor table tennis & Bikes. 2 minutes from the bungalow you can swing through the trees at the 'Indian Forest' & Squirrel Park! 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 !
