Rental Description

In a quiet hamlet in the hills just above the sweet little village of Urval, just south of the Dordogne, is the charming Le Repos. With lovely woodland views and only a few minutes by car from the river, this is the perfect base for exploring this wonderful region.
Step inside and admire the original pisé flooring leading to the comfortable living space on the ground floor. The beautiful kitchen has been recently installed and is enough to impress any keen cook and leads to the living and dining room with a cosy wood burning stove and French doors leading to a glorious al-fresco terrace, perfect for your morning coffee and croissants or evenings with good local wine and friends. Downstairs the double bedroom has its own original fire-place whilst on the first floor the spacious en-suite bedrooms have beautiful wooden flooring and lovely garden views.
A delightful little cottage bedroom is available to rent in addition to the main house, ideal for extra guests or family looking for a little more independence.
The pretty gardens are full of summer colour, lovely lawns and the sweet scent of roses. Find a shady tree to read a book under or wander down the steps to the glorious infinity swimming pool where an afternoon can be spent relaxing on the terrace or cooling off in the water, with lovely views over the surrounding trees. The summer kitchen here is a lovely spot for long lunches, there is even a fridge to keep your wine cool.
