The cottage is situated on a hillside overlooking the Dordogne valley in the most sought-after part of the Périgord Noir. There is a walnut tree plantation in front of the cottage and a large, alarmed 6 x 12 meter swimming pool hidden behind. The road leading to it is private and a cul-de-sac. There are acres and acres of woodland around and an authentic borie, or shepherd's hut, in Roudet's overall grounds.
The cottage has a large living room, exposed beams and a typical large fireplace. The kitchen/dining room below was recently moderninsed with built-in ash cupboards, made to measure by a local carpenter. There are two bedrooms, a newly fitted bathroom with a large shower as well and a utility room with an extra toilet. Then there's an independent large bedroom (with its own toilet and shower plus kitchen facilities) that gives on to the swimming pool, 12 x 6 metres with steps as a play area for toddlers additionally protected by an alarm.
The living room contains a couch/single bed. The local village is St. Vincent de Cosse, of Roman origin, and the medieval town of Sarlat is 10 miles away. The most famous chateaux are close by and markets to die for nearly every day of the week. As well as all linen and house towels, those for the pool are also provided.
Rental is Saturday to Saturday. The pool is cleaned twice a week and the house once a week, with linen/towel change as required. There's an on-call service for problems and emergencies within 25 minutes. This is from Tom and Andrew who also do private dinners by arrangement. Deposit £250 on signature of contract.

The famous chateau of Beynac is three miles away, Castelnaud two more; Les Milandes, the home of Josephine Baker between the Wars and afterwards, is opposite (as the crow flies). The prehistoric sites of Les Eyzies are a twenty minute drive, as is Sarlat, a jewel of a town. Festivals of music and theatre abound and the choice of tempting markets is enormous.
You are spoilt for choice to eat out, from Michelin-stared restaurants (save up firstly) to bistro costing less than £11 for a three-course meal with wine. One of these is attached to a great hotel/resturant in the area and does weekday lunches at £10 for three-courses.
