le petit capelier holiday pool and cottage

The house is very well decorated and perfectly suited for 6 people!
Quietly located and surrounded by nature, it is a very pleasant house to spend a resting stay. The region is magnificent. Bergerac, located 20 minutes away, has all the necessary amenities.

Arriving at Le Petit Capelier down the winding little track is perfect. The house is old and full of character. The pool is sparkling clean and great fun to cool off on hot days. We loved using the barbecue and cooking up feasts for supper from wonderful ingredients bought in local villages and at the fabulous markets. We really wish that we could have stayed for longer.

Beautiful house with amazing garden and fantastic pool
My partner and I stayed at Le Petit Capelier in September 2018 where the weather was still very warm.
It was my second visit to the house and there have been improvements since the first. New double doors to the living room and lots more useful items in the kitchen.
The house is deceptively large and would easily suit six people but we were lucky enough to enjoy it just between us.
The garden is entirely private and the pool is absolutely lovely and seems to be cleaned twice a week; we spent most days on the wooden loungers enjoying the tranquility and privacy.
We hired a car locally and managed to see Issigeac (amazing medieval village very close by), Chateau Bridoire and did some light shopping in Bergerac but mainly just stayed at the cottage where you really feel like you’re in the middle of deepest rural France (but actually you can get to Bergerac airport in twenty mins by car).
We hope to return next year

just about what a country house should be

“Dominic’s place was what we wanted for a holiday. It’s out in the middle of the country and what beautiful country it is. Lovely home lovely pool just about what a country house should be. Bergerac 20 minutes away and a beautiful town. Music by the river every Monday nights. Local village Issigeac is gorgeous and as a 5 star restaurant L’Atelier. To finish off the hundreds of amazing Vineyards all around us made our stay perfect. I think we will be drinking our wines very slowly. Every bottle will be worth it. Thank you. Manjit and Fam.”

Perfect Secluded, Peaceful Family Holiday Home

This wonderful house is in a very peaceful, rural location, down a long driveway, with lots of space around it, plus a private pool. It’s comfortable and stylish, with a beautiful huge, high-ceilinged sitting room and three big bedrooms. We felt at home as soon as we arrived, with everything we needed for our stay. It’s 15-30 minutes drive to several lovely villages and towns, such as Issigeac, Monbazillac and Eymet, with a good choice of good restaurants, night and day markets etc. to explore nearby.
The owner was very helpful and responded very quickly to all our queries, with local tips and practical help. I’d thoroughly recommend this house for families, couples and friends – great away-from-it-all location and a lovely house.

Picture perfect hideaway for our family Christmas!
 A beautifully stylish and character-filled house which was the perfect setting for our family Christmas. A roaring log fire and huge dining table provided us with a memorable feast and the children happily explored the substantial grounds. With gorgeous crisp and sunny days, afternoon tea alfresco was an unexpected highlight and super comfy beds were very welcome after all the festive excesses! So many thoughtful touches both on arrival and throughout the property. We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy the pool!

Oasis of calm nestled in the most stunning countryside

My wife and I had the absolute pleasure to stay at Le Petit Capelier for a week in July. The property itself is a historic stone farmhouse situated in a wonderfully quiet location and also has the benefit of a large pool totally undisturbed bliss.
The interior design is really very beautiful, the owners have obviously gone to a lot of effort making it extremely comfortable, filled with a lot of beautiful furniture without losing the personality and history of the property in the design.
We were also delighted by the fact that even though we were in a very quiet, private rural location you are a ten minute drive from some of the most beautiful villages and towns that France has to offer, centrally located in magnificent countryside.
We were absolutely delighted by our stay in this most charming stone house and will definitely book again. We would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend Le Petit Capelier to anyone wishing to book a tranquil and stylish stay is rural south west France.

The perfect place to relax and escape!
 My partner and I stayed at Le Petit Capelier whilst on a working trip in Bergerac. We couldn’t have picked a better place to unwind and relax. We were only planning to stay for 1 night but we extended our stay to 3. To our delight a selection of local cheese and wines were laid out for our arrival, along with all the other provisions we needed. We quickly felt at home and spent most of our time by the pool. My partners family joined us for a night, where we cooked up a feast using ingredients bought from the local markets. There was enough room for all of us to sleep comfortably. We originally had our doubts about staying away from the town, but this Idyllic cottage set out in it’s own beautiful surroundings immediately removed any. If you want to relax and get away from it all, I can’t recommend this place highly enough.

Peace and tranquility in comfort at Le Petit Capelier

My family stayed at Le Petit Capelier this Summer and had a lovely holiday. The cottage is situated in a beautiful location in the heart of the French countryside. The surrounding areas give you an opportunity to visit local French Markets, canoe down the river as well as fun days out for the children and if you just want some peace and quite you can spend the days by the pool. The cottage is very tastefully decorated and well equipped with all that we needed. The children were able to run freely as the cottage is well away from any roads and had lots of surrounding land to explore. We will definitely book again!
