Welcome to your holiday cottage in the heart of the Dordogne

Here, you will find plenty of restaurants and cafés, including Michelin recommended Le Centenaire and Les Glycines. Perfect for whiling away the sunshine-filled days and balmy evenings.
Four-Star accommodation and ‘Super Host’ status
The Office of Tourism in Périgord awarded the cottages at “Les Girouteaux” 4 Stars. Here are some of the reasons why.
Each cottage is beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything you would need for your relaxing holiday. You have a lovely kitchen area with dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, large fridge-freezer and Tassimo coffee machine. Each cottage also has free WiFi, UK satellite television and DVD player, and phone charging plugs. The living and dining areas are homely and comfortable. Carefully created to provide the perfect setting for good times with your family and friends.
Your little ones are catered for as well, with all the baby equipment you may need. Cots, high-chairs, stairgates and strollers are all included in the rental price.
Activities in and around your Dordogne holiday home
Onsite, you will find a well-equipped games barn with pool table, table-top football, and more, which provides hours of fun for children of all ages.
There is also an information stand where you will find books, leaflets and flyers with up-to-date details about the many activities in and around the Dordogne.
You have a south-facing in-ground swimming pool with a large sundeck and plenty of sun loungers for catching the day’s rays. The pool is very safe as it’s just 1.4 metres deep throughout. It is completely enclosed by fencing, with toddler-proof magnetic gates. (There is also an adjacent separate toddler pool.)
The pool area is not overlooked from any direction and enjoys plenty of surrounding space for you to play and relax.
