Holiday Cottage in the Dordogne France

This former tobacco farm rests on the hillside between the picturesque Roman villages of Bouteilles and St Paul de Lizonne, in a pretty and interesting corner of rural south west France. Lovingly restored and retaining a traditional French country feel, L'Erable is a charming conversion of one of the ancient single storey barns, sitting alongside the main farmhouse inhabited by ourselves.

Immaculately presented, this light and airy house radiates warmth and a friendly atmosphere. The carefully designed interior incorporates an extensively equipped farmhouse kitchen, many traditional country features of beams and mellow stone walls, the whole being attractively furnished.

Three pretty bedrooms sleep 6 people, two with fully equipped en-suites bath/shower rooms. There is a further family bath/shower room and separate laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer etc.

Sitting room featuring a 42 inch plasma TV and UK satellite freeview, DVD, CD and an ipod base. On autumnal evenings the wood burning stove creates a warming ambiance around which to enjoy a good bottle of wine! The barn has full central heating for out of season use.

A secluded pool of 11m x 6m is for the sole use of the guests at l'Erable. Throughout the farm the pretty gardens offer shady corners in which to relax. Only a 5 minute drive to all amenities, the property ideally suits all those searching for the perfect 'away from it all' location!

Two sun terraces, back and front, both with comfortable furniture, are situated to enjoy the tranquil country surroundings.
