We chose this cottage because it had two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. My friend and I are both widows and like our own space. There was a bit of confusion when we arrived as one of the bedrooms had two single beds, but this was rectified the following day. The cottage is ideal for two couples or a small family. The bedrooms are downstairs as are the toilets which was a little “inconvenient “. The cottage is well equipped and is close to Hautefort with it’s impressive castle. The etang de coucou and the restaurant was worth a visit. We had very good weather for the week,with just a little rain on the Friday afternoon. We didn’t see much of Paul and Anita as we wanted a relaxing week ,and didn’t want too many outings, but when we did see them , we found them friendly. The only problem we had during the week was the internet which was not working very well. All in all we would recommend this cottage both for a restful holiday or as a base from which to explore the area.
Wonderful little house, full of all the amenities a family of 4 might need for a comfortable 7 day stay. internet and cable works a dream for those lazy and cold nights. We live in France so it was a luxury to see a bunch of English books and magazines peppered about and I had control of the zapper one night so it was English tv. In the fall months you already need a warm fireplace which comfortably radiated heat on the main and upper floors. The bottom floor room is a bit cold without another form of heating, but it was still fine for us. This house is a revised house in the local style with exposed beams and the furniture is simple and charming, there are probably sufficient amenities and space for 5 people. There are not that many amenities in the local village, but a bar/mini market... but the town a 5 minute drive away has your bakery and a town with a pharmacy and look out for the pizza guy who brings a real wood burning oven in his antique old truck! You are about a relaxing 45 minute drive from Sarlat and Les Eyzies
