We are located opposite the Covered Market (Marche Couvert) on the corner of Rue Raspail and Rue du Marche.
In the centre of a beautiful French village, we have a self contained apartment for a couple looking for a getaway. The apartment consists of a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, toilet and washing machine including dry rack, iron and ironing board. Free and unlimited Wifi is available. A comfortable large size bed made up with crisp clean linen awaits your arrival. The apartment is on the ground floor and is very private. A large supermarket is a short walk away for your everyday needs. Ample free public parking is available in front of the house and being in the centre of town you are within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Experience a typical French holiday; enjoy the natural beauty and serenity of the Orgues with the magnificent views overlooking the region or walk one of the many forest trails. Visit the many Brocante markets and Vide Greniers in the quaint surrounding villages to buy something typically French and unique or just sit and relax and tantalise your taste buds with the local cuisine. Spend time at the lake and the historic Chateau De Val and enjoy a leisurely boat ride, the beach and many of the water activities. The Dordogne flows through the centre of town which adds to the beauty of the area. A local food market is 100 metres from your front door every Saturday and during the summer months fresh cherries are in season and are available in abundance. Local patisseries are all around with a range of many delightful exquisite pastries and cakes. During the summer months there is a wide variety of community activities organised in the centre of this friendly French village.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the house. We expect that you would leave the apartment in a clean and tidy manner. If the apartment is left in an unacceptable manner, money will be taken from your security deposit. We would ask you to respect our home. There is strictly no parking in front of the garage. There is a separate private door to your apartment; however, the front entrance door of the house is shared with the owners so please ensure that it is locked.
We came to France for a holiday and experienced the French lifestyle and were so enchanted that we decided to buy a house and spend more time in this magnificent country. After having a business in Australia where we spent most of our time, we then shared our life between Australia and France.
