About Karen Carter
The owners are Alan and Karen Carter, we are South African,. We have travelled and lived in America and the UK and included all the things we like to have when we are away from home. We discovered the Dordogne in 2008 when we visited a friend who owns a property outside Tremolat. We both have fallen in love with the area. Alan and I would like to share our beautiful farmhouse and now recently our newly RENOVATED barn with anyone who loves fabulous food, unbelievable scenery, amazing history, and peace. The peace you too discover.
Karen Carter purchased this Cottage in 2010

Perfect in everyway!
Centrally located. Well equipped, cosy and comfortable with plenty of entertainment space inside and outside. Good local restaurants. Car would be advisable to explore the area and do bigger shops. Trémolat is in walking distance.
The perfect escape! Beautiful.
The Cottage was absolutely stunning. The kitchen was well-equipped, the bedrooms luxurious, the water pressure high, and all was spotlessly clean. Whether it's to visit the local Chateaus, indulge in the world's best Foei gras, or paddle along the majestic Dordogne, the cottage could not be better located. The hosts were easily available and extremely friendly. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking a peaceful getaway with the most incredible scenery!
Thank you for writing a review about our cottage in the Dordogne. I am very glad that you enjoyed so much of what the area has to offer.
We hope that you return again soon.
Un Noël charmant
Merci à Karen pour sa gentillesse et à Simon pour tous ces préparatifs.
La maison est superbe, la déco très bien choisie. Tout était décoré pour Noël.
Il est vrai que nous avons eu un peu froid car la maison n'est pas très bien isolée mais cela n'a pas du tout entaché notre séjour.
Je recommande vivement cette location.
Merci Elodie d'avoir écrit une si bonne critique. Nous avons hate de vous revoir bientôt.
Home away from Home
I recently visited this cottage with some friends and I really recommend a trip to anyone looking for a nice relaxing french countryside holiday! The house itself was so cutely designed with an outside braai area where we sat and had duck pate, cheese and wine every night! The house had everything you could possibly need and more! The house was in walking distance to the main town area which has a few delicious restaurants! The area itself was absolutely stunning! We went canoeing down the Dordogne which was such a beautiful experience and additionally visited a few Castles which had the most breathtaking views! I recommend this cottage to anyone looking to take some time out and explore the French Countryside!! Loved it!!!
Thank you for taking time to write a lovely review. We loved having you and your friends to stay. We look forward to welcoming you at the cottage and barn soon!
The perfect countryside break away! Mindblowing!
The cottage is absolutely stunning and is so well equipped with everything you could need for a wonderful stay. Everything was perfect, from the amazingly comfortable beds to the unbelievably beautiful scenery all around this area. The hosts were available and suggested some great places and activities for us to do in and around Tremolat. There really is loads to do in the area, but the cottage is also so nice and lovely if you prefer to stay home! A real french countryside experience! Will definitely go back and recommended this to anyone!
Thank you for taking the time to review our cosy cottage. You were great guests- we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Everything was provided...getting connected to the internet was frustrating, tho...
Thank you for taking the time to review the cottage and for letting me know that there is a problem with the internet. I will contact Orange to find out what the problem is. It is a concern as it is a new system.
I hope you have had a wonderful holiday. We look forward to having you to stay again.

It is accessible to great walks, and cycle trips in the countryside. One can enjoy lovely day trips by foot, bike or car. . Visit Sarlat for its wonderful market on a Wednesday and Saturday or simply enjoy the ambiance of this beautiful town. Beynac Castle and its lovely village is worth a visit as well as a trip up the Dordogne River in a Gabarre(an old trade boat) What a great way to get an insight to the castles and chateaux of the area. A visit to Les Eyzies is a must as well as a visit to the Lascaux Caves. These caves contain some of the oldest and finest prehistoric art in the world.
