Riverside Cottage, Montpon Menesterol
(10 mins from Martins’ Lakes)
Here at Riverside cottage in the heart of the Dordogne region of France you have the best of both worlds, with the river at the bottom of your garden and the lovely town centre just a two minute walk away.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms (one double bedroom and one twin bedroom). The master bedroom is en-suite (toilet, basin, and shower) and there is a second separate bathroom with toilet, basin & shower downstairs. The fully fitted kitchen is well stocked with everything you may need and has views through the sitting room to the river.
Outside there is a barbecue and seating areas and access to a separate utility room which has a washing machine.
It is possible to fish from the bottom of the garden as there is a section of the railing that opens to allow you to put your rods out. There are most coarse fish in the river, including carp and big cat fish - the river record is 210lbs!
Please note that if you would like to fish you will need a permit - please open the following link: Fishing Holiday Permit . If you have any difficulties just let us know and we will help.
There is a park on the opposite side which has a swimming lake with a small sandy beach area. It is also possible to hire kayaks or pedal boats if you fancy having a trip along the river.
When you arrive you will find the cottage perfectly prepared for your holiday. The beds will be made, bath and hand towels are provided for use in the property, as are kitchen and tea towels. We also try to supply all the basics you don't want to have to buy just for a week or two of holiday, such as handwash, new kitchen cloths, washing up liquid, cling film, foil etc. The only extra thing we ask you to bring are towels for use outside or going to the beach.
Montpon has all the usual shops and facilities, as well as a lovely weekly market which is definitely worth a visit. There is also a very pleasant walk along the river to an excellent restaurant just 10 mins away, plus several other restaurants to choose from in the town.
The weekly rental costs are £550 in July & August and£500 at all other times. Please contact us for availability or if you would like know the cost of a long-term, out of season let.
