Lovely Sunny cottage with French windows onto a large terrace. Light & airy with tile or laminate floors and lovely views down the valley. We are close to St-Jean de Cole, Thiviers and Brantome, with UK TV, WiFi, all facilities and a nearby 10 meter pool which is only for our guests.
A delightful cottage with UK satellite TV and WiFi situated in the French countryside and yet only 3km from Thivers and St-Jean de Cole. A peaceful little haven to relax and unwind. Very bright and cool with tiled or laminated floors. Large French windows with an electric shutter lead onto the back terrace with lovely views of the valley, a delightful spot for breakfast or dinner at Sunset.
Nearby there are lakes with sandy beaches for swimming and canoeing. There are also some lovely countryside walks through the surrounding forest areas.
The cottage has its own private back terrace and side terrace with outdoor chairs, a table and tilting umbrella. The private pool is opened at the end of May (weather permitting) During the hot Summer days it can easily reach a lovely swimming temperature of 26 - 28 degrees. There is a bistro table & chairs near the cottage entrance that overlook the pool. There are extra chairs and Sun loungers and cushions for both. The kitchen is fully fitted and has most everything you will need to enjoy your stay. Outside there is a new Barbecue available and in the pool room there is an Eco-bubble washing machine, iron, ironing board and a clothes airer for your pool towels etc. The bed linen will all be fresh and clean on your arrival as will towels for both bedrooms.
Interaction with guests
We live in the main house and are happy to advise or assist in any way we can, anything you cannot find or if you have forgotten something we can probably help out. The back and side terraces of the cottage are completely private for breakfast or a Bar-B-Que. Thiviers is only 3km away and has numerous small shops and 4 main supermarkets.
Other things to note
We have an old Bearded Collie who will quickly become your very best friend. There is a beautiful tree providing shading on the terrace for Lunch, but in the afternoons it can become very hot. The French windows have an electric shutter which allows the breezes through while keeping the Sun at bay. Only UK TV at this time, but there is a DVD player with some French films in the cottage. UK films are available at no charge, please let us know if you would like to borrow one.
We would prefer people who are looking for peace, quiet and relaxation along with the chance to visit some of the most beautiful small villages in France. As neither of us smoke we would prefer to keep the cottage itself smoke free. A small dog is allowed as long as he/she is friendly and house-trained :-) We have had many guests with young children, but would prefer to approve this on a case-by-case basis as the cottage is really set up and equipped for adult visitors.
