Details of the Cottage

Located in the Ceou Valley, just off the 'Vallee des Cinq Chateaux' area of the Dordogne.
Individual buildings are cosy enough for one or two, but can accommodate up to 11 in two renovated buildings (see website below). It is located in a tiny rural hamlet (7 properties) not far from the village of St Cybranet.

Main floor: lounge (35sq.m.) well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fireplace, small sunny dining room, master bedroom with ensuite; Upstairs: double and single bedrooms, bathroom with full bath; Garden level: family room or extra bedroom, convertible sofa, ensuite bathroom and toilet, washing machine, drier. The house is cool in summer thanks to the 70cm stone walls, with a grand fireplace and heaters in all bedrooms for colder months.

Wireless ADSL, desk & office chair. Printer/scanner/copier and widescreen LCD on request.

There are herbs, chillies and some strawberries in the garden, a plum tree and a fig tree in the field (plums in July, figs in autumn, if the birds don't get them first), chestnuts in the woods (autumn, particularly north of the Dordogne river), and all the walnuts you can eat (and more) at any time of year (they keep for a couple of years) from our own walnut trees! Help with the harvest if you are here in October!

Esparoutis is located in Castelnaud la Chapelle, Dordogne

The tranquil hamlet of Esparoutis, of which Les Paroules is a part, consists of a handful beautifully restored old stone residences in the Céou valley, one of the least spoiled valleys in the Dordogne area. The hamlet is located away from the main road, surrounded by orchards of walnut trees and just a short walk or cycle ride to the villages of Saint Cybranet (organic supermarket 700m) and Castelnaud (full name Castelnaud-la-Chapelle), with all the day to day necessities and pleasures available (bakery/patisserie, butcher, small supermarket and news agency, post office, ATM, hairdresser, cafe and restaurants 2.5km).

From Esparoutis you can travel in all directions – north, south, east, west – to explore some of the region's most captivating sights and sites of interest, each with their own unique treats and delights.
