The French Country Cottages – Les Chouettes, is a warm and comfortable place to stay in Tremolat, Dordogne, France.

Our two comfortable units cater for large families or groups, as we are able to sleep up to 14 people.

For smaller groups the 8 sleeper Cottage or the 6 sleeper Barn provide comfortable and private accommodation, each with their own facilities and privacy. Each unit has a pool to cool off in summer as well as  fire places to warm you up in the cooler winter. Enjoy relaxing under the trees in our beautiful gardens.

We have a volleyball net at The Cottage to entertain the adults & children and for you to be able to fit in a bit of exercise while on holiday. Why not pack a picnic basket and enjoy the tranquil beauty of the garden or setup your lunch on our shaded patios.

Your time at Les Chouettes will be filled with wonderful experiences. Although based on the outskirts of Sarlat we are ideally placed at Les Chouettes to explore the entire Dordogne Area.
