ASK ABOUT OUR COOKING WINE TASTING PACKAGES FOR 2017
The French Country Cottage - Les Chouettes is a typical Perigoridian Cottage. It is found within easy driving distance from Bordeaux, Sarlat-la-Caneda, Bergerac, Lalinde, Le Bugue and Perigueux, only1 km from Tremolat village in the Dordogne valley of Aquitaine.
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.

This converted 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.
The kids lounge is equipped with Playstation 2 too.

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. We are 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, as well as a new comer called Les Tartines which serves delicious tartines for those who are looking for a little something. 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 to pick up ingredients for a meal later.

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, paddle 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) He really provides the most wonderful gastronomic experience.. The restaurant is quirky and fabulous.

Car: Necessary

Step into ancient history by visiting the worlds best kept secret - The Dordogne valley of the Aquitaine Region. The French Country -Cottage Les Chouettes is situated in the hamlet of Nardoux, 1 km from Tremolat village. The property backs onto a walnut orchard. 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. The cave paintings, which mainly depict animals, are some 17,000 years old and seem to have a ritual purpose. For preservation reasons, the public may only visit a well-executed replica called Lascaux 2.

Other Activities: Market shopping, Kayaking, Boating,Skiing, Hot Air Ballooning, Wildlife Viewing,Birding, Miniature golf Golfing,Horse riding, Cycling, rambling, Cooking, Wine tasting and Fine Dining experiences

Golf: Golf La Peyriere St Genies 12-18 Hole

Golf at Chateau Les Merles Tuiliers Mouleydier 9 Holes

Golf De Lolivarie Siorac 9 Holes

Ski: Water skiing is available at the Bassin Nautique. You are also able to take lessons if necessary

Hire canoes and canoe down the Dordogne River or simply relax next to the river with a picnic and a good book

 

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 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.

Why the Owner Chose Trémolat, France:
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 cottage. Tremolat itself offers 4 superb restaurants and 1 wine bar 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!!
