La Petite Maison is an adorable, private detached cottage for two, situated in a semi-rural location just one mile from a stunning medieval village with waterfalls and Templar buildings.

The cottage sits in its own private garden with a shaded patio for alfresco dining. There is a small plunge pool in the communal gardens for cooling off and a full size pool is available at the hotel in the village.

The cottage was originally a duck barn where the farmer's wife fed the ducks and cooked the fois gras in the massive fireplace!!

it has been beautifully restored with all modern conveniences and is fully fitted for a comfortable self-catering holiday.

Reviews for 2014

This is an absolutely delightful retreat.

La Petite Maison has a wonderful ambiance that radiates thru the garden and the patio.

Our hosts are wonderful offering useful information to avoid the tourists.

They welcomed us with a bottle of wine and some cheese, can you get more French than that?

Merci pour tout

Dear Lucy

Thank you for a very lovely stay in your beautiful little cottage.

Despite the unpredictable weather - thunderstorms, heat wave and rain - it was great.

So much to enjoy - The Eyrignac Gardens are beautiful, Lascaux was a unique, almost spiritual experience, Limieuil and yesterday a meal at the Commanderie - a fantastic place!

All the best and merci beaucoup

Dear Lucy

Thank you for a wonderful week in your little cottage.

We really loved La Petite Maison!!

We had  great time exploring the Dordogne, we especially liked Les Jardins de Marqueyssac and Le Chateau Hautefort.

We hope to see you again sometime

All the best

Dear Sue, Lucy and George,

Thank you so much for a lovely week in La Petite Maison.

You made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much bother.

We loved being able to use the bikes and the garden was a huge bonus, we really enjoyed the raspberries.

Finally the dogs were so friendly adding to the family atmosphere!

Love from
