In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we find ourselves wishing we could take a step back from it all and take a breath. We wish for a place where we can escape and recharge our batteries and feed our souls in the style of Eat, Pray, Love.
Trémolat offers such an opportunity. The village is situated along the Dordogne River just east of Bergerac. Among the various accommodation options is Les Chouettes, a quant cottage situated just a 2 minutes away from the Trémolat village centre.
Everything offered by the cottage keeps family fun and leisure in mind. Lounge around the pool with a glass of chilled white wine; or challenge your family to a game of volley ball. If you want to get out and about, the village is in walking-distance where one can enjoy a lunch at the local establishments, or take a stroll along the river. There are also water activities offered in the summer months such as skiing.
One could also simply rent a bicycle and take in the surrounding beauty put on display by the late, golden sunsets stretching over the thousands of blooming sunflowers.
The scope of your stay in the region can be as great or as small as you want. The village is central and in driving distance to a multitude of other towns and villages. An easy day-trip can be made to Limeul, Le Bugue, Bordeaux, or Mauzac-et-Grand-Castang.
There is no shortage of places to explore, and no judgement towards those who merely want to relax in quiet seclusion.
