In a sought after location in the Périgord Noir, considered to be the most beautiful region in France and famous for its numerous châteaux, pre-history sites and outstanding cuisine, this charming, newly restored period stone cottage with original features, has been awarded 4 stars, the highest star rating for self-catering holiday accommodation. Set within the spacious, leafy grounds of a small 17th Century manor house that was formerly the courthouse for the nearby Château de Losse, the cottage has a private 11 x 5 metre swimming pool and offers guests peace, privacy and a sense of wellbeing.

About the neighbourhood
Our village is in the heart of the Vézère valley, the cradle of civilization in Europe, habitat of Neanderthal then Cro-Magnon man and world famous for its prehistoric sites and decorated caves.

The most important is just a few minutes away in Montigac whose Lascaux caves are considered to be 'quot;the Sistine Chapel of prehistory'

Take a canoe from the hire station in the village and you can float down the Vézère, stopping at the many fascinating places en route. St Léon sur Vézère (3.5 km by road) listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, is set in the curve of t...
