In the separate Laundry room there is a Washing machine with unlimited use and all laundry /cleaning products included. There is also a tumble dryer or you can peg out your washing on the line in the little grassy area behind the house if like me you just love the smell of freshly laundered clothes that have been dried in the warm summer sun!

Top quality white egyptian cotton bedlinen and a generous supply of fluffy white towels all provided at no extra charge There are two large bedrooms each with modern en suite bathroom. A separate toilet is also available.

Bedroom one has enchanting views over the rooftops to the pretty village of Daglan in the valley below. Bedroom two has an additional double bed on a mezzanine floor making it an ideal family room.

In the " Salon" there are double french doors leading on to the terrace and BBQ are. There is a wooden patio table and chairs for six and large parasol to offer shade from the summer sun. A quiet spot to relax with just the occasional farm vehicle passing by whose driver is sure to wave a "bonjour" as you sit and sip a glass of wine after a fun-filled day and watch a golden sunset over the imposing 13th Century Château Le Peyruzel.

About Laetitia & Roy Evans

We bought our traditional little piece of heaven that is Le Peyruzel in 2004. It had been a dream of ours for many years to some day live in France. We, Roy and I (Letitia) had visited La Belle France many times with our children while they were growing up. Surprisingly we had never stayed in the Perigord Noir. Usually heading for the Med or the Atlantic coast from our home in Scotland. We did occasionally stay inland and we loved the beauty of the French countryside. The diversity of the different departments was truly breathtaking. In 2004 I had retired from the NHS in Scotland and when friends asked if we would join them on a trip to the Lot in France, we really didn't need too much persuasion! Roy and I talked about our life long ambition to 'live the dream' and decided it was finally time, if we were serious, to start looking for somewhere we could call home in France. We arranged many 'appointments to view' properties within a couple of hours drive from Toulouse Airport and so began the most exciting and challenging time of our lives.

What a delightful place to spend a holiday. The cottage at Le Peyrusel sits at the

top of a hill overlooking the valley below. We had our morning coffee and evening drinks sitting beside the pool admiring the view of Daglan nestled in te valley below- beautiful and peaceful. The cottage is well furnished and has every amenity you need. Roy and Letitia are on hand to give advice on the attractions in the area and there are many!! Children are especially catered for with theme parks,and river activities. My grandchildren had a ball.

Thanks for a lovely stay. We look forward to visiting again.

Summer Bliss!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been lucky enough to spend our last two summer holidays in this little piece of heaven in the French countryside. Both holidays have been sheer bliss and everything you could possibly wish for from a family holiday in France.

The characterful restored traditional cottage with its lovely landscaped garden and pool has a delightful home from home appeal to it. Additionally you have Roy and Letitia who make every effort to ensure you enjoy your stay with them. Be sure to ask them the directions to the wonderful Boulangerie in Castlenaud! The 15minute drive and queues out the door are worth it. They also recommended some wonderful restaurants and things for us to see and do.

All in all we couldn't recommend Le Peyruzel highly enough. It's the perfect way in which to experience rural France at its very best.

Our charming, traditional Perigordian cottage of honey coloured stone is set in the heart of the area known locally as the Golden Triangle. France's most sought after holiday destination. Our loving restored.

cottage sits directly opposite the impressive, 13th Century Château du Peyruzel. Listed as a 'Monument Historique'.

The major attractions of Beynac, La Roque Gageac and Sarlat la Caneda (to name just a few) are all within an easy 15 min drive along the Dordogne River. The magnificent Bastide town of Domme is 5 minutes away across the Valley, and Castelnaud la Chapelle with its spectacular Chateau clinging to the edge of the hillside is a lovely 9km drive down through the Ceou Valley.

Le Peyruzel is perched high on the hills above the pretty village of Daglan where there is a Post Office, Boulangerie, Boucherie and a small super-market. In the award winning restaurant, Le Petit Paris, enjoy a gastronomic feast and sample the superb Bordeaux and Bergerac wines of the region. Cool off in the in the rock pools of the River Coeu which runs through the village or take a short drive to the banks of the Dordogne where you can try canoeing or enjoy a leisurely sail and marvel at the historic Chateaux of Castelnaud and Beynac sitting majestically above the riverbank.

Our newly installed swimming pool with its powerful jet pump is fantastic for cooling off in the summer heat. The traditional 'abri de jardin' is a delightful spot to relax in our comfy sofa or chairs and read a book or listen to some music (iPod docking station) or, have a glass chilled wine from the fridge by the pool or simply enjoy the amazing views across the valley.
