Located in the very heart of the Dordogne River Valley… we love Le Sud! When it comes to renting self-catered accommodation this is certainly worth consideration; Colette & Harvey Jacobsen are outstanding hosts and their property is centrally located, adjacent to the river, sits on a network of walking trails, yet is only minutes away from all required conveniences.  Did we mention it’s also extremely tranquil and beautiful?

There is still availability for summer and fall 2012 at Le Sud and the weekly rates are very reasonable. All bookings are Saturday to Saturday:

Nestled in the very heart of the Dordogne River Valley, Le Sud is our top recommendation for visitors wanting high quality, self-catered, accommodations at very affordable prices.

Le Sud is a 19th century farmhouse which is centrally located to some of France’s most beautiful medieval villages and extraordinary attractions. Situated just above the Dordogne River, this wonderful property’s beautifully maintained gardens, meadows and comfortable accommodations make it the ideal base-camp for any recreational adventures into our region.

For international travelers from Canada and US we recommend, if possible, avoiding both the crowds and higher prices associated with the peak season:  14 July through 31 August. All stays at Le Sud are Saturday to Saturday and off-peak (31 March – 1 June & 29 September – 2 November 2012) weekly rates start at only: 460 Euros. Hey, for two couples sharing a cottage that’s as little as 17€ per person, per night … C’est Incroyable!

Arranged around a central courtyard this tranquil compound has a total of four rental units plus the owner’s residence. Le Jasmin, Le Romarin, and La Petite Grange each have two bedrooms (1 dbl / 1 twin bedded) and La Lavande has 3 bedrooms (2 dbl’s / 1 twin bedded).

Each ‘cottage’ has been sympathetically restored to a high standard with many exposed beams and original stone walls that provide holiday accommodations with comfort, charm and character.

Adjacent to Le Sud’s central courtyard are also the communal barbeque complex, beautiful salt water swimming pool and a pétanque (french bowling) pitch!
