La Petite Maison at Moulin du Pont

This 200-year-old cottage is nestled in the midst of sunflower fields and rolling hills. Recently refurbished, modern appliances and new furnishings complement the many original features the building offers and create a comfortable space for up to 6 adults.

This is a place that allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle. Explore the nearby villages, chateaux and farmers markets; savour the best of the local wine, cognac and cheese producers; or simply relax with a book by the river.

The space
Appearances can be deceptive. Although our cottage looks small from the outside, inside it offers three bedrooms (two doubles and one twin), a large bathroom, comfortable lounge and a spacious dining kitchen.

There is a first floor veranda which provides a great view of our large garden and the fields beyond, and a small patio area – both are perfect for that pre-dinner aperitif and alfresco eating. Guests also have use of our riverside garden.

We have recently renovated the cottage, including installing a new kitchen and bathroom and replacing most of the furniture including the beds. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and crockery, plus a cooker with a hob, grill and oven, fridge/freezer, kettle and toaster.

 

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire cottage, the immediate grounds (patio and parking at the front) and the garden.

 

Guest interaction
Both my husband and I are available to offer help throughout your stay. We speak English, and a little French and Spanish.

Neighborhood overview
Our part of the Dordogne is very peaceful and quiet so is perfect for relaxing breaks. We are surrounded by agricultural land, and for as far as the eye can see there are fields of sunflowers and maize, and rolling hills. This attracts a lot of wildlife, including deer, boar, birds of prey and some very beautiful butterflies and dragonflies. There is no shortage of things to do nearby, with chateaux, ancient monuments, caves, beautiful villages, farmers markets, art galleries and museums all within easy travelling distance. We provide guests with a comprehensive list of attractions.
