The
Experience

Perched on a hill at the foot of castle ramparts sits a beautifully converted house with stunning valley and woodland views. It’s warm and friendly with two sitting rooms, one with slouchy sofa and big coffee table, the other with sofabed. Wend your way up oak staircases to two cosy bedrooms with iron paysan-style beds, higgledy-piggledy beams, oak floors and sensational film-set views. Just go steady in the dead of night as you back down the stairs – to a state-of-the-art bathroom with a swish walk-in shower and tub. The rustic-contemporary kitchen is a delight, with its exposed stone walls, flagstone floors, and corner dining table. Leave your car in the square opposite and spend the days pottering up and down the steep cobblestone streets and the Perigord Noir houses of the village, bright with flowers in summer. Don’t miss the château gardens, Wednesday’s market, river swimming 4km away. Enjoy a quiet drink on the small terrace, then amble off to a restaurant or bar. This may not be perfect for the very young – or those craving WiFi – but for a family or two couples happy to share a bathroom, it’s bliss.

Reviews

Wonderful cottage, village, Baker, butcher, restaurants, people, market and walks. We have been coming to france for holidays many years not every year but I would guess at at least 40 years they have all been great but we think this was the best.

David, Canterbury

Rediat Cor is a stunning, well equipped property. The interior design creates a wonderful ambient atmosphere. The views from the house are magnificent, with several excellent restaurants literally steps away from the front door. We found plenty to do both close by, as well as further afield. Rediat Cor truly is a special place to stay and we have no doubt we will return. Amy, the owner, is extremely helpful and provides plenty of useful information to enhance your stay in Hautefort and surrounding areas. Catherine and Martin Harvey

We had a brilliant stay at Rediat Cor, so good that we have already booked to go back next year for two weeks. All very good, particularly comfy beds and excellent shower. Also very clean. Several really good restaurants within easy walking distance.

We had a lovely stay at Amy's! It's a delightful cottage situtated in the old town of a charming french country village. The house had everything one could ask for. There is a local supermarket nearby, aprox. 15-20 min on foot and there are many very good restaurants. Don't forget to visit the local antique store!

Amy's house is beautiful and immaculate in every sense. Her thoughtfulness is evident in all respects from the way in which the house is decorated and equipped to the way in which every type of guest is catered for. The house is located right at the heart of a very vibrant village. There are two fantastic restaurants which are within 10 paces of the front door!! The chateaux which is just behind the house provides a itself is fantastic on the inside and to wander through the gardens. There is lots of lovely walking too. A highlight of our visit was the very cool new visitor centre at Lascuax

Jen, Cairns

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rediat Cor. The property is beautifully presented and equipped with everything we could possibly need. The position on the village square was stunning and we had a superb evening meal in the restaurant opposite. The village itself is beautiful and after each day trip we felt that we were returning to the best place of all. We would definitely come back to this idyllic spot and Rediat Cor. Amy was a very helpful and accommodating host. 10 out of 10!

Jude, Oxford

When we saw the welcoming note from Amy and the bottle of wine we felt that we were sharing the house of a friend, and that was how our week began and finished. Everything that one needs in a delightfully decorated home suited to relaxing and enjoying the good things in life. Music, videos, books,a terrace, bbq the list goes on, even a picnic set.A pristine village so easy to wander about, whether collecting a baguette, having a coffee or visiting the chateau. An ideal base for exploring further afield and then returning to walk across the road to two beautiful little restaurants. Formidable!

Wendy, Mitcham, australia

We have travelled much and wandered far and this was truly the most wonderful experience. Rediat Cor was richly furnished catering for all modern needs and yet managed to retain its very old character in its positively French setting. Hautefort is a living French village catering for everyday needs and did not seen at all touristy although it is sheltered by an imposing chateau. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Cindy

A great choice! Perfectly equipped and everything done with great taste- walking distance to restaurants/ bakery and charcuterie- in fact everything you could ask for in a French rental property. We have stayed in many gites all over France for over 20 years and this was by far the best- many thanks!!

Keith

Rediat Cor is a delightful house in a delightful village. Lots to see and do and the owner provides lots of information about the area. The bed was comfortable and the shower was excellent. A very cosy base to explore the area with lots of lovely walks and a beautiful chateau,literally, on your doorstep and a must visit Musee de medicine. We would definitely go back. Highly recommended.

Phil, Scotland

Rediat Cor is a lovely old house overlooking the square in Hautefort, watched over by the splendid chateau. It is very generously kitted out, full of character and near to a lot of very interesting places. We had an 11 year old with us and there was plenty for her to do.

Peter

We spent a wonderful, relaxing week in Rediat Cor. Amy has paid the utmost attention to making you feel most welcome and comfortable. Everything you need is provided and if not then you really don't need it. The house and village is most charming and within easy reach of many wonderful things to see and do. The lascaux caves, le Gouffre de Padirac, Sarlat and many more are within easy reach. The house would be a charming spot to visit at any time of the year. We hope to return again,

Local points of interest from Amy Anson

  • A french retreat nestled in the heart of Hautefort, the house sits directly beneath the beautiful and imposing ‘Chateau de Hautefort’ and overlooks a tranquil village square. Rediat Cor and the village feature in the film ‘Plenty’ starring Meryl Streep!
  • A delightful boulangerie for your morning breads and pastries, a boucherie /charcuterie offering plenty of local meats and cheeses and several cafes and restaurants are just a 5-minute stroll away in the village.
  • The local Auvézère river and many lakes within easy reach, offer adventure and endless opportunities for canoeing, swimming, fishing and windsurfing. Or perhaps take a picnic and simply relax in the sun on a river bank.
  • Numerous hiking trails and bike routes start from the village and wind through the surrounding lush countryside. Bikes can easily be hired nearby and delivered to your door at Rediat Cor.
  • In the summer evenings you will see hot air balloons flying over the village. Lift off is usually at the foot of the chateau and is an exhilarating way to take in the local scenery!
  • The Lascaux caves, Brantome ‘the Venice of the Périgord’, the vibrant medieval town of Sarlat and the Dordogne with its stunning chateaux are all close by and offer memorable day trips across this beautiful and extensive region.
