This beautifully renovated cottage is one of three properties – the others self-catering – but each is far enough away from the others that you’ll feel very private.
Marian and Barry live in an apartment at the back of the house – they’re lovely hosts with a great sense of humour. Make yourself at home in the elegant living room furnished with carefully chosen antiques or relax on the sunny front terrace with an aperitif. Wake up to a breakfast of granola, seasonal fruit and compote, fresh pastries and hot chocolate.
You’re in the middle of a quiet hamlet with woodland walks on your doorstep and can stroll to the nearest village, Cercoux, in half an hour for dinner at the Auberge – spot boar and deer along the way. Take a picnic to the swimming lake and sandy beach at Montguyon, a 10-minute drive, or go on a day trip to the wine towns of Saint-Émilion, 40 minutes away, or Bordeaux, just under an hour.
