IDYLLIC, CHARMING, BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED LUXURY 18TH CENTURY COTTAGE PRIVATE POOL

Coux et Bigaroque Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom luxury cottage

The beautiful French stone house is ideally located for exploring all the sites that the region has to offer. Located in a tranquil spot in its own grounds on the small hill top above Le Coux, it’s a pretty 15 minute walk to the village where there is a boulangerie, cave and a cooperative providing produce from local suppliers.

Full of charm and character, the house has been beautifully restored using traditional methods and materials. The kitchen has its original “pisé” stone floor, oak beams throughout and a handmade kitchen. The lounge is light and spacious and has a lovely wood-burning stove for cosy autumn and winter evenings. There are two spacious bedrooms, each having its own luxurious en-suite bathroom. Bed linens are of fine Egyptian cotton and the bathrooms are supplied with luxury towels.

Outside there is a sheltered patio ideal for al-fresco dining, a 9m x 5m heated private pool in which to relax and an acre of private garden.

As a welcome to the cottage we will supply you with a small food hamper to help you get started.

Local markets are available throughout the week, (details can be found in the information pack at the cottage) and there is also a supermarket at nearby Siorac. The small co-operative in Le Coux offers produce from local suppliers.

During the summer season there are numerous events close by including medieval fetes, open air theatre, classical concerts, etc..

On booking we will forward to you a website link which has a what' s on listing.

Outside of the main holiday period the pace of life is quieter. Each season has something different to offer. Please contact us and we can forward you some information on your chosen time of year.

BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATION, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Le Coux. The house is beautiful, very tastefully decorated and really well equipped (Thank you so much to the owners for providing a cot and high chair.) We were lucky enough to enjoy the fantastic pool every day. Really didn't want to leave!!

Owner's Response: It is always very rewarding to receive such lovely commendations from our guests. We try to accommodate any specific needs our clients may have wherever we can (in this instance with a cot and high chair), to make Pierre Lapin as relaxing and as enjoyable a holiday cottage as possible. All feedback on our accommodation is always of great value to us to make sure that what we offer continues to please.

PERFECT LUXURY FAMILY HOLIDAY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our 6 year old son stayed for a week in Pierre Lapin in early July and had a wonderful time. It was the best accommodation and most lovely region of our 4 week holiday in France and Italy.

The cottage is beautiful, exactly like the photos on the internet and in a gorgeous and convenient location.

The cottage itself exceeded our expectations with an extensive library for both adults and children, children's board games, even a badminton set which was set up on the front lawn. A welcome basket including champagne, home made jam and croissants and coffee was an added bonus along with everyday necessities like washing powder, olive oil and glad wrap.

Ian and Heather were lovely and helpful hosts, with great tips for the region including fun family outings like canoeing and the nearby Air Parc (my son's favourite thing on our entire holiday).

You can walk into the small village for fresh bread from the bakery, as well as coffee at the cafe (although we relied on the great coffee machine in the house). The beautiful villages of Domme, Sarlat and Beynac and prehistoric cave paintings were a short drive away, along with other less visited, beautiful villages. Good supermarkets are a 5-10 minute drive.

Summer was a perfect time to stay and we swam in the pool every afternoon and even into the evening. We often ate on the outdoor table, even seeing a wild deer on two occasions.

I'd highly recommend this lovely region and cottage for a relaxing stay with a great mix of history, beautiful villages and fun, family activities.

The celebrated Perigord Noir in South-West France really is the ideal holiday destination – and it fits the bill at any time of the year. This is the place to appreciate some of France's finest medieval architecture, the fantastic geological formations of the Dordogne and explore the countryside on foot , by bike or even canoe.

A renowned gastronomic area offering fine dining or a more rustic farmhouse setting, local superb produce is also available at the numerous village markets. The vineyards of Monbazillac and Pécharmant are close by whilst St Emillion would be a longer day out.

The region is steeped in history, the earliest known settlements of prehistoric man dating back over 400,000 years are at nearby Les Eyzies; numerous prehistoric sites to explore exist throughout the area and include some of Europe’s finest cave paintings. Châteaux built on the wealth of medieval trade and fortified ‘bastides’ dating from the 100 year’s war are a perfect setting to wander.

Other Activities: Hot air ballooning, canoeing, river boat trips, light aircraft trips, night markets, numerous summer fetes

Golf: There is a small 9 hole golf course at Siorac (4km), and an 18 hole course at Lollivarie (7km). Slightly further afield are the courses at La Marterie - 18 holes, Sarlat - 9 holes and Perigueux - 18 holes. There are a number of other courses in the area for keen golfers, further details can be provided.
