Your own private hideaway, this lovely cottage has characterful interiors, with stunning exposed wood ceilings throughout.

Step into the living room with sloping ceilings and comfy sofas, the perfect spot to snuggle up for bedtime stories before you tuck the little ones off to bed.

A beautiful wooden beamed wall divides the living room from a lovely open plan kitchen diner, with books slotted between the beams; the living room leads through to a twin bedroom.

Step through to the kitchen area and you’ll find a lovely sitting area to your left, snuggled round a log burner, where you’ll want to cosy up if you’re visiting in the colder months.

The kitchen is fully fitted with a big range cooker and a dishwasher; to the left of the room a doorway leads down a couple of steps to a shower room, a separate loo and a full family bathroom, where there is a washing machine hidden away in a cupboard.

The bedrooms are split between the ground floor and the first floor. Through the dining area, there is a big double bedroom and stairs leading from the dining room to a further twin bedroom; at the top of the stairs, you will find a twin and the master bedroom both beautifully tucked away under the eaves.

There is plenty of room for a cot in all of the bedrooms and the shuttered windows make the bedrooms dark enough for everybody to have a good night’s sleep.

Parent Points:

  • There are a couple of steps down to the bathrooms but the door leading to them can be closed to prevent unsupervised access
  • There is a single step between the sitting area and the kitchen; it is not possible to gate this so care will need to be taken
  • The beams in the upstairs bedrooms are low so adults and older children will need to take care not to bump their heads
  • The stairs are narrow and quite steep so please take care with small children


The cottage is set in a stunning countryside location with views out across the fields from all angles.

The patio terrace outside is the perfect spot to sit in the sun, looking out across sunflower and corn fields nearby.

The fully enclosed gardens are a great place to let the little ones play and run around without any worry and the private pool is accessed on a separate terrace.

Wander up a few steps and through the gate to the pool (10m x 5m) where the whole family can splash and play; the pool is heated with a metal ladder into the water.

Parent Points:

  • There is a set of steps leading up to the pool area so care will need to be taken
  • The house is set on the edge of a small country road but you will need to make sure that you keep the gates closed to ensure that the garden is fully enclosed; from this location, it is also possible to hear some road noise from the very occasional car or tractor
  • The enclosed garden has views over farmland; at the far end of the enormous field opposite the garden, there is an open reservoir of water, which you will need to be aware of if you go for a walk in the fields
  • From its lovely countryside location, there will be certain times of the year during planting and harvest where there will be some noise as a result of farming activity


The cottage is set in a lovely countryside location with lots of little local villages to explore; the nearest town is Villeréal, the main town in the canton of 13 villages.  The town is stunning with beautiful old buildings.

Wander around the shops, including an international supermarket, or pop to the tourist office to learn about the local area.

If you’re out shopping or exploring and fancy a bite to eat, treat yourself to a trip to Patisserie Salon de The Damien Blanchard, which serves delicious pastry breakfasts, through to wonderful cakes; the kids (and adults) will love the delicious hot chocolate, which is made from real chocolate.

In the evenings, head to La Dolce Vita, a child-friendly restaurant, with high chairs available that serves delicious home cooked food made with fresh produce.

Perfect for anyone who is looking for a delicious meal in a relaxing environment, the owner personally welcomes each customer and the meals cooked up by the chef have a creative flair.


It is a 20 minute drive to the vineyard region of Bergerac, where the perfect spot for a day trip out is the Bridoire Castle, which has been carefully restored from a near-ruin to suit the whole family.

Even before you get inside, the little ones will be entertained by all of the games that are dotted about, and once you get inside, there are different medieval themed games in each room, too.

Take a picnic with you to enjoy on the shaded tables outside, or take a trip to the café, which serves homemade food.

If you get the chance, pop into Rody Chocolaterie, which serves wonderful chocolate that can be wrapped up into lovely boxes for you – perfect as a little gift to take home.

If you fancy an evening meal before heading back to the cottage, try La Grappe d’Or, a child-friendly restaurant with highchairs that serves traditional local cuisine.

Make sure you check before heading there, though, as they are closed from mid-January to mid-February every year, as well as every Monday, Tuesday and Sunday.  In July and August, they are open every day of the week.

Aqua Park

For family fun, head to the Aqua Park, which is in Bergerac; if you get the chance, hire a box, which comes with sun loungers, chairs and parasols, so the family can spread out in your own personal space all day.

There are pools and slides, including a shallow pool and smaller slides which are suitable for the little ones, as well as a soft play area and a climbing frame.

The café serves food, refreshments and the all-important ice cream, and if you fancy a treat, head to the spa, which has a sauna and hammam.
