Cottage
The detached cottage is set in the grounds of the owners 7 hectares of land and is independent from the owners house. It has the usual facilities with 3 double bedrooms. There is a patio for exclusive use of tenants beside the cottage and a private area of garden (with BBQ) at the rear of the cottage. There are lovely views from the cottage and garden down the valley overlooking woods and farmland. Cottage guests have priority use of the 29 meter long swimming pool that has beautiful views down a valley - please check the photos. The owners, Mike & Caroline, may use it when you are out and about! We don't recommend the property for families with very young children as there are steep drops around the property. We also have 3 friendly dogs (and cat) so anybody who doesn't like or isn't used...The detached cottage is set in the grounds of the owners 7 hectares of land and is independent from the owners house.

We also have 3 friendly dogs (and cat) so anybody who doesn't like or isn't used to dogs would be better off looking elsewhere! The cottage is less than 1.5 kms from the local bastide / village of Eymet which has numerous restaurants, bars and good shopping facilities. There are 4 bicycles for the use of tenants. Bergerac, situated on the Dordogne, is 25 minutes away and cheap flights are available to the airport which is served by Ryan Air, BA and Flybe from various cities within the UK. More

Beautiful gite, fully equipped with everything you'd want for a self catering holiday, very clean and situated within 15 acres of land but also within a small distance from Eymet town centre. Amazing pool with fantastic views. We'll visit again!
