Luxury Dordogne cottage for rent - Located on the banks of the Dordogne River, Le Petit Nid is a delightful stone cottage for two people, just a short distance from the shops and restaurants of Siorac-en-Perigord. Overlooking the river, this charming cottage sits within the large grounds of a manor house, 150 metres away, with independent access and private use of the infinity pool. This property has been fully renovated and refurbished offering luxury accommodation with all modern comforts, ideal for a couple seeking a romantic holiday.
Just down the lane that leads to the villa runs a quaint single track railway. Four trains per day chug along this line, adding a touch of authentic French charm for the guests' delight. If you fancy leaving the car behind one day, you could jump on board at Siorac and take a short ride to Sarlat, a lively little town with a beautifully preserved medieval district in the centre: you'll find plenty of restaurants here and if you come on a Saturday morning the market will be in full swing. Le Petit Nid is extremely well situated for visiting all the most delightful places this region is rightly famous for, such as the innumerable caves with their ancient wall paintings and amazing stalagmites and stalagtites, the chateaux and villages of Beynac and Domme, and the little bastide towns of Montpazier, Belves and Villereal.
There are a number of famous gardens nearby such as Erignac and Marqueyssac, and if you head towards Bergerac you can drive past acres and acres of vineyards and sample some local wines. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in this area, as well as shops selling local specialities such as foie gras and chestnut cakes. There are sports galore in the area: canoeing & kayaking on the Dordogne, hot-air ballooning, cycling & mountain biking, golf, horse-riding, tennis, ultra-light airplanes, rock climbing and bird watching. Fishing enthusiasts can purchase a licence from the village 'bar-tabac', a short distance from your luxury Dordogne cottage.

The Local View
This gorgeous cottage is perfect for two and has a kitchen that is full sized and very well equipped. Lazing by the pool and viewing the Dordogne River is heaven. This is a lovely part of the Dordogne and near so many wonderful villages, chateaux and fabulous ornamental gardens. The pretty vilage of Siorac-en-Perigord is a delight with quaint stone houses and a couple of good restaurants such as Le Trefles a Quatre Feuilles, serving good food with a smile. It's clean and bright and I had a superb Perigourdine salad here. It was very well presented with plenty of foie gras and excellent home-made bread.
