Location

The property is located in open countryside on the edge of the small hamlet of Tesquet, 5 minutes from Fumel.

Cuzorn, 2 minutes with grocery store, bar and restaurant

All shops, supermarkets, restaurants, café bars etc in nearby Fumel or Monflanquin (15 minutes).

Monflanquin is an old bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views. All amenities in the village including large supermarket, cafés, restaurants, bakeries (and an English food shop! Great for bacon, sausages etc…)

Traditional street market every Thursday morning and weekly night market.

The Dordogne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist.

Its a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

Many antique markets throughout the year. All info at the tourist information office.

Bergerac (55 minutes) was once a flourishing port for the wine trade. It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.

The many timbered houses with terracotta decoration that line the lanes of the old town, are wonderfully evocative of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. On one corner the wanderer suddenly finds himself 'nose to nose' with Cyrano whose statue proudly reminds the visitor that Bergerac owes some of its fame to this historic figure. Not surprisingly the annual theatre 'Le Festival du Théatre' is named after him.

A great way to tour the vineyards is by following the designated Route des vins where the visitor will be welcomed by the growers and encouraged to try their wines. The Bergerac region is sometimes called Perigord Pourpre the name deriving from the rich purple-red wines that characterize this area of Perigord.

Reviews

« We had a lovely stay in this very comfortable house. We enjoyed the swimming pool in such a peaceful location and heard squeaking in the trees at night – we think it was the lizards. We can certainly recommend the buggies – great fun and The Prince Noir restaurant in Monflanquin – the snails were delicious. »  The Illingworths - Chalfont St Peter

« Fantastic week in a stunning location. The cottage is beautiful, exactly how I would do my own holiday cottage (if only!). We all loved the pool and having so much space to ourselves. Places visited:- Sarlat, Beynac & Monflanquin – all beautiful towns with lots of character and very friendly. Also canoed down the Dordogne, 14k in 2 canoes with our 2 boys. We are seriously considering booking again for next year. THANK YOU! »  McKenzie family - Tunbridge Wells

« Had a fantastic week in La Terrisse, if my 2 ½year old daughter settles in then you're on to a winning location. Pool fantastic, grounds superb, kids found it to be an adventure. Highly recommend Monflanquin and especially the night market on the Thursday evening. »  Rainbow family - Kent
