Property description

Within easy driving distance from Bordeaux, Sarlat-la-Caneda, Bergerac, Lalinde, Le Bugue and Perigueux, you will find this beautiful cottage situated in a little country hamlet 1 km from Tremolat, Dordogne
The French Country Cottage is a restored farmhouse. It offers a tranquil environment, charming French decor, a great private pool for those warm sunny days which overlooks a walnut orchard.

The farmhouse has 4 nice size bedrooms and is able to comfortably accommodate up to 8 people'. The main bedroom is beautifully decorated in typical french style and very spacious.

The kitchen is well-equipped for you to try your hand at any new recipes with the ingredients from any of the nearby markets. There is a good size stove and oven, fridge/freezer, and microwave. (We have a spare fridge/freezer in the laundry to keep your drinks cold in the summer) The dishwasher will take care of any dirty dishes.

There are 2 sitting rooms, which are equipped with SAT/TV, DVD and CD player and board games for rainy weather.

Cots and high chairs are available on request.

Outside the swimming pool is fenced and there is a large garden for the children to run free.
Outside we have volley ball so you can challenge your family and friends to a match. Our barn is also equipped with table tennis and bicyles to keep you occupied.


The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:: The french country cottage is a great rental and is only a 15 minute walk from the village, There are 4 fantastic restaurants in the village - one of which holds a Michelin star and is situated in Le Vieux Logis hotel - there is a pizzeria, and a great Bistro which offers typical Perigordian cuisine. There is a great little bakery where you can buy your morning croissants and baguettes for a picnic later in the day. We love cycling through the countryside to visit the local markets.

Approximately 3 km from the cottage is the Bassin nautique which is one the Dordogne River, here you and your family can enjoy all types of water activities - water skiing, peddle boating, paddling and swimming. There is also a great pizzeria/restaurant where you can sit outside and enjoy the sun setting over the Dordogne River.

Leaving Tremolat village (on the other side) a mere 4 km is a typical Perigordian Auberge called Les Truffiers. Here you will be welcomed by Yannick. You will enjoy the most incredible meal (try to go with an empty stomach)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: The owners are Alan and Karen Carter, we are South African,. We have travelled and lived in various parts of the world 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 with anyone who loves fabulous food, unbelievable scenery, amazing history, and peace. The peace you too discover.

Why the Owner Chose Tremolat:
We fell in love with Tremolat and the beautiful Dordogne region when we visited in 2008 We have returned every year since that trip and we now have our beautiful home. Tremolat offers 4 superb restaurants and is within easy reach of wine regions such as Bordeaux, Begerac, Pecharment, and the lovely smooth wines of Monbazzilac ( gorgeous with fois gras), It is also within easy driving distance of wonderful historical sites such as Baynac and Castlenaud Castles, 1 hour from the paleolithic sites such as Les Eysiers. We are in easy access (only 35 km from Bergerac Airport, Bordeaux Airport is a 2 hour drive from the house)

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
FREE WIFI - JUNE and SEPTEMBER Specials - :: GREAT for CHILDREN The property is in easy access of the main freeways. No matter what your interests are, everything is close by - vineyards, castles and history, history of early man, nature, water sports, walking, cycling, markets, shopping and fabulous restaurants. Around every corner is a new experience!!
