Rural Cottage with Lake and Woodland on Working Farm

This cottage is one of three renovated farmworkers' cottages located on a farm in a secluded corner of the Dordogne. A private lake with canoes, rowing boat and pedalo are at your disposal, as well as a 250-acre patchwork of woodland and grassland to explore. Spend days lounging in the sun with a good book by the lake, or visit the nearby local markets and historic villages. Ideal for families, couples and groups of friends looking for a rural retreat and a break from the world.

Chez Robert is equipped with a decent-sized kitchen with a large dinner table, Rayburn Range cooker, fridge-freezer, microwave, pots and pans, and common kitchen utensils. There are two bathrooms (one with bath) and four bedrooms, one double and three good sized twins. Two of the twin rooms are connected by a spiral staircase (no door separates the two). Both the kitchen and the comfy living room lead out onto the outdoor eating area, where you can enjoy Bordeaux wine under the shade of a tree.

Guests from all three houses have access to the 5-acre lake with sandy beach and small island. To make the most out of the lake, we offer the use of a rowing boat for fishing or just pottering, a couple of 2-man canoes, a kayak, and a pedalo. Apart from the main lake, two other peaceful lakes can be found on the premises and are stocked with fish, including carp, tench, roach and perch. The surrounding woodlands can be explored thanks to maintained footpaths and we also lend basic bikes.

Our cottages are renovated farm-workers’ cottages, located on a working organic sheep farm, so guests should expect some of the quirks that come with the environment. If you would like to find out more about our sheep, cows or newly-planted orchard, we will be more than happy to chat.

Apart from the other guests on the farm, the nearest neighbours are across fields and woodland making this a very peaceful and picturesque spot. The nearest bakeries, butcher's, farm-shop, restaurant and supermarkets are located in La Roche-Chalais, a small town a 3-minute-drive or 10-minute bike ride away. The nearest river where you can hire canoes is just beyond the village of Parcoul, 7 km away.

The area is rural, but the surrounding countryside is quite diverse, ranging from the internationally renowned vineyards of Bordeaux and St Émilion, through the picturesque rolling hills, old market towns, and rivers for which the Dordogne region is famous, to the prehistoric caves of Villars (just over an hour's drive away).

Our area is also well-known for its cuisine with a focus on fresh, local produce that can be bought (or tasted) at a range of markets: there is a different market for every day of the week!
