HOLIDAY COTTAGES TO RENT IN THE VILLAGE OF TREMOLAT IN THE DORDOGNE AREA OF FRANCE
We fell in love with Les Chouette, a French cottage to rent on the outskirts of the village of Tremolat in the Dordogne, with its sparkling swimming pool. We were so inspired by the people, the food, the culture, the history of the area that we decided to invest in this property and we renovated the cottage and the barn in order to make it available to rent.
Both units are rented out for seven days at a time.
Les Chouettes, (The Owls) the name of our property, is a great base from where to experience the villages of the Dordogne, as you are able to visit the markets and enjoy try your hand at cooking and combining different flavors in your own kitchen. A Michelin Star restaurant, Le Vieux Logis, is just down the road.
Our Perigordian cottage was once an old farmhouse, typical in style, with tall “sway” rooftops. It is called Les Chouettes – which in French means “The Owls”. One can often hear the owls in the early evening, or if you happen to look up to see one perched high on the roof.
We love the old farmhouse as it captures the old French charm. This is a perfect family holiday destination which can accommodate up to 8 guests in the four bedrooms: 3 double bedrooms and 1 bedroom with twin beds. The cottage has the perfect kitchen, comfortable living room with a lovely fireplace for the cold winter evenings and a separate kids lounge. There is a great swimming pool for those steamy days, making this a great holiday venue for your family or for a group of friends needing an escape from the stresses of modern day living. Sometimes families get together here.
In the adjacent barn, we find two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and two lounges, one with a sleeper couch to enable the unit to sleep six. You will also find a private plunge pool. The double volume open plan lounge/kitchen area is a favorite room for the guests.
Of course, it doesn’t matter if you visit in Summer or Winter as there is so much you can do in the Dordogne region of France in either season. We at Les Chouettes offer everything you need in a French Holiday Rental – a great place to unwind and enjoy the local atmosphere.
You can hike or ride through the countryside (we have 8 bicycles for you to choose from on site) or simply soak up the afternoon sun with a good book and a glass of wine. Nearby are historical sites to explore, architecture, nature or adventure.
Delicious meals at Les Vieux Logis, Tremolat’s Michelin star restaurant, the local Bistro en face Tremolat, Les Truffiers Tremolat or the Village pizzeria, really provide a gastronomic delight.
Of course with the rich variety of fresh produce and delicacies at the local markets you may want to try your hand at cooking. Our favourite, is a meal with magret de canard or omelette with truffles- how decadent!
