A traditional detached stone built village house, hundreds of years old, renovated to a high standard and retaining many original features, stone walls, oak beams. Cottage Le Capiol is full of character and offers comfortable modern accommodation, with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Lying in a quiet back street of the charming village of Cenac et St Julien, nestling into the hillside at the foot of the medieval bastide of Domme, the property is a short walk to the river Dordogne, restaurants and shops.

On the ground floor off the hall is a double bedroom with four poster bed, bedside tables, wardrobe and ensuite shower room (jet shower). wash hand basin (hairdryer), heated towel rail. There is a separate wc.

Stairs lead up to the first floor lounge with television and comfortable seating, reading lamp, coffee table, cabinet with selection of books. There is a fitted kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and electric stove cooker, plus fridge freezer. The dining table seats four, the dresser contains glasses, dishes etc. Stairs from the lounge lead up to the third floor twin bedroom in the eaves, bedside cupboard and table, writing desk and wardrobe, with ensuite bathroom (with bath tub), hand wash basin, mirror and towel rail, plus wc.

This delightful original Perigordine cottage has private parking and accessed via stone steps an outside shaded patio with views over the village, table and four chairs, plus small BBQ. Local shops are just around the corner and the supermarket is less than 500 meters away. You have the choice of eating in or eating out and can walk to one of the local inexpensive restaurants or bars. Pop out in the morning to pick up your freshly baked croissants and bread.

For that special gourmet meal you should discover the restaurant Belle Etoile a 5 minute drive away at La Roque Gageac. Here you may enjoy a wonderful meal in lovely surroundings at a very reasonable price. The Perigord is renowned for it's gastronomy and is the best value for money in the whole of France.

Strolling around the village is a joy, with the narrow streets, the weekly market, the tiny village chapel and the speciality shops.The River Dordogne and it's riverside beach and canoeing is also within walking distance of the cottage.

The ancient bastide of Domme rises up behind the village and several footpaths lead you through the picturesque countryside to one of the most beautiful villages in France. A 360 degree panorama gives amazing views over the Valley of the Dordogne. Here you will find many more restaurants and small shops to browse around.

Right on your doorstep are all the spectacular sights of the Dordogne Valley, the Chateaux of Beynac and Castelnaud, the gardens at Marqueyssac and the medieval town of Sarlat.

I do not think it an exaggeration to describe this part of the Dordogne as one of the most beautiful and unique places in France.

The area.
The river Dordogne majestically winds it's way through the region crossing the Perigord Noir and passing the village of Cenac et St Julien which lies at the foot of the medieval bastide of Domme. To the west a short distance along the river you will find La Roque Gageac as equally picturesque and steeped in history as is Domme. A little further along is the famous Chateau of Beynac.

The entire area is steeped in history and pre-history, counting the world famous site of Lascaux within easy reach. From the dawn of time man has left his mark in what must surely be described as one of the most beautiful parts of France. From cave dwellings to fairy tale castles the views and scenery are breath taking.

Friends from Adelaide, Australia May 2016

We loved Le Capiol. It is a very attractive, tastefully furnished and comfortable cottage conveniently situated in a lovely village with everything we needed for a relaxing break. The owner responded promptly and positively when we made an enquiry about when we could have access.

Couple from South Shields, United Kingdom Aug 2013

A lovely cottage in a lovely location. Decoration is very well done and we felt immediately at home. Our only faults were the dampness in the downstairs bedroom which was ok for us as we are a couple and decamped to the top floor bedroom, but might be a problem for more than 2 people. The terrace was a litle disappointing at first, but we ended up spending plenty of time there as there is plenty of shade and it is quite private.

Lovely cottage, very clean and well looked after. Well situated, quiet, in walking distance of everything in the charming village. The property itself is full of character and well renovated and nicely furnished. The area is outstanding and I would recommend staying here to anyone.

From Melbourne, Australia Sep 2008

My friends and i went for a week for a hen party.
The villa was wonderful and Christina who managed the check in was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for her.
We did not hire a car but walked to Olhos d agua the beautiful town and beach,which took about 45 minutes.
We went by taxi to Villamoura Marina which is stunning, this took 15minutes .
The villa is inbetween Villamoura and Albefeira . Perfect.

Cottage Le Capiol is a charming and very attractive property, tastefully presented and ideally situated to explore the many attractions of this part of the Dordogne. The attractive village of Cenac supplies all ones day-to-day requirements, and the proximity to to the bastide village of Domme, and to the Dordogne river itself are a further bonus. The Cottage, on three levels, with living area on the middle floor, is ideal for two couples. Communication by the proprietor is excellent. Highly recommended.
