Bouteilles St Sebastien Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Self catering farmhouse & 2 gites.Beautiful summers,cosy winters.Lovely views

La Croix offers a comfortable base to explore one of the most beautiful parts of the Dordogne.The garden is filled with evening primrose, hollyhocks and buddleia which attract many butterflies, notably Swallowtail. The terraces and balcony allow ample room to eat 'al fresco' with a commanding view as the sun sets over rolling countryside. Aubeterre, one of 'Les beaux villages de France' is only 15 minutes drive away. It has great historical interest and has its own beach on the river Dronne. There are many good restaurants within easy reach and Riberac market on a Friday morning is essential!!!

The accomodation is in three very separate areas, suitable for families and friends, but also can be entirely independent. The farmhouse can accommodate 2 and the gite 2 with the option of a third on a sofa bed if required.The 'Gite in the garden' accommodates 2. La Croix is excellent for relaxing 'away from it all' with beautiful countryside. An artists paradise. A creative atmosphere. Perfect for spiritual renewal. Wood burning stoves make this a perfect, cosy winter retreat.

Fabulous cottage in a stunning location!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a lovely two week stay in this beautiful gite and I thought it necessary to write a review to let you know what a fantastic time we had. The gite was everything we were hoping for, stylish and well equipped and the surrounding gardens were peaceful and relaxing. The views from the balcony where we ate breakfast every morning were stunning and the surrounding villages and lively markets were great to explore. We opted for a meal provided by Sara on the first night which was delicious and very welcome after a day travelling. La Criox is perfect for couples after a romantic, relaxing break and I would highly recommend it for anyone wishing to discover this delightful area. Sara and Pete were wonderful hosts who were on hand to answer any queries and we felt very welcome, I'm sure we'll return!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 11 relaxing and very enjoyable days. The very friendly and approachable owner (Sara) was on site for the entire stay so if problems were to arise she was on hand to sort them out. The gite was charming with excellent views from the balcony at the rear of the property. It was extremely quiet and the view of the stars was exceptional. The friendly lizard on the kitchen windowsill made washing up a pleasure. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to come !

A Perfect Rural Haven

  • 5 of 5
**** The Perfect Rural Haven - Truly Magic! ****

I was fortunate enough to find this peace of heaven in 2008 while looking for a peaceful getaway for an extended stay - returning again in 2009. I stayed in the romantic, rustic Cottage for 2 whole months & also enjoyed a week-end in the larger and equally well appointed Farmhouse, which is ideal for families.

Nestled on the crest of a hill in one of the most beautiful parts of the Dordogne, "La Croix", surrounded by stunning scenery is where dreams really do come true. Its within close proximity to several lovely villages and many tourist sites and is the perfect starting
point to discovering what South West France has to offer.

There are also many wonderful walks and scenic drives to enjoy, but do return in time to savour the spectacular sunsets each evening from the privacy of your own deck! It really is heaven!

Sara (now a friend) is a wonderful hostess who delights in sharing her charming world with her guests and I have no hesitation in
recommending La Croix.

Perigueux, 45 minutes drive is the capital of the Dordogne. The medieval part of the town comes alive on Wednesdays and Sturdays when local artisans display their first-class produce, including cured meats, truffles, foie - gras and pies or 'pates de Perigueux'. La Cite, once a pivotal Gallo - Roman site of Versunna, is also worth a foray. If you walk up the hill from La Cite you'll come to the Cathedrale St. Front which proved to be a trial run for the architect Abadie who later went on to design the Sacre - Couer in Paris.

Angouleme, a cathedral city, used to be dominated by paper mills but now has a thriving tourist industry.The old town occupies a high steep sided plateau overlooking a bend in the Charente. It has many charms. Brantome, the Venice of the Perigord, is surrounded by a loop in the River Dronne. The towns pride is its Benedictine Abbey. Brantome is a must see as is St. Emillion, although a one and a half drive to the south is well worth the experience.
