Head off on one of the woodland paths to watch for birds, go down to the river for a dip and to the village for breakfast bread; for dinner head to L’Angelus.
There’s space for everyone to spread out on the back terrace with its great, green views and glimpses of the Dordogne and around the fenced pool below. Indoors too, over two long, low floors, you’ve a big, comfy sitting room and roomy half-basement with simple TV and games rooms and a laundry room. Bedrooms are in two wings so work well for two families; this is a practical, unfussy kind of place, complete with nursery and home office too.
Nearby Carsac and medieval Sarlat have great weekly food markets – come back with baskets of barbecue goodies or confit de canard, cèpes and foie gras. Hire bikes and pedal the Sarlat/Cazoulès Greenway or canoes for a river trip; take time to be still.
