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.
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.

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.

Excellent facilities and located in a quiet street a short walk from Cenac. We found the cottage to be clean upon takeover with many items not normally available in french properties. Would certainly recommend this cottage to others.
Golf course nearby, bike rental, canoeing, hot air ballooning, inexpensive and gourmet
restaurants, chateaux, grottes and prehistoric sites.
Picturesque countryside, medieval
towns and villages.
Very good value for money.
