Set in the heart of the French country side… 

Selected by Trip Advisor and AirBNB this characterful cottage is a perfect fusion of English and French styles and perfect for Dordogne holidays. Close to idyllically-historic Issigeac, 18km from Château Les Merles Golf Course and 17 km from Aqua Park, from here you can explore the countryside or just relax by the pool and watch the children play.

Le Petit capelier, one of the loveliest dordogne holiday cottages, is at the end of a long drive, approached through two historic out buildings. Beautifully built and over three hundred years old, this one-storey country cottage is sheltered by many ancient oaks (chene) scattered over two-and-a-half acres of garden with a classic Dordogne roof and traditional shutters.

Internally the hall reveals a well-appointed galley kitchen, a shared bathroom and the twin bedroom, and the master room is found just through. Down two steps is the spacious and impressive living room (sejour), and the third bedroom off that. Comfortable and friendly sofas are positioned in front of the 300-year old fireplace; a long dining table for ten is located behind the sofas with lots of room throughout; the massive beam and high lofted ceiling remind one of the historic significance of such a beautiful house.

The decor is fresh, shabby chic and welcoming, there are many antiques and French treasures and fabrics are unpretentious and natural.

This charming dordogne holiday cottage is ideal for cooking throughout the whole year in the kitchen or BBQ facilities with glasses of something lovely while watching nature at its finest; or relaxing on the loungers and cooling off in the large pool.

If you’ve dreamed of holidays in the Dordogne then Le Petit Capelier will fulfil them. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and rolling, the nearby lake at Lougratte charming and clean, many chateau at can be found at Bridoire, Monbazillac and Biron, the charm of Issigeac (medieval architecture, cafes and a Sunday market) is only a ten-minute drive.

A perfect holiday home for families…
