Maurens, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
We are located in a small hamlet, close to Bergerac, rural but not isolated and very peaceful. As one guest described the cottage and setting: 'an oasis of calm'.

Set in the grounds of a beautiful Perigordian Chartreuse, La Petite Maison is a two room cottage built of honey-coloured stone under a tiled roof with lovely oak beams in the living area.

It is an ideal retreat for couples or families with young children. Perfect for getting away from the stresses of modern life.

The garden attracts abundant bird and wildlife, including birds rare to the UK, red squirrels,many beautiful butterflies and humming-bird moths. Wild flowers, including orchids as well as flowering trees and shrubs provide a colourful backdrop most of the year.

There is a good sized swimming pool 12 metres by 6. It is fully fenced with a security gate and al...

About the neighborhood
The pretty market town of Bergerac has numerous restaurants and plentiful shopping as well as a lively market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

All around the area are wine trails and vineyards for tasting and buying. Bergerac has more different individual AOC wines than almost any other part of France, from the sweet white Monbazillac to the rich dark red Pecharmant and many in between to suit all tastes and moods. Many of the vineyards and cooperatives are open for tastings and will make visitors most welcome. Bliss!

There are plenty of sporting activities ranging from golf to canoeing, from karting to fishing as well as pleasant walking cycling and horse riding from local stables. Walking is a pleasure along marked trails throughout the region.
