[style]: France's Dordogne Rental


We are still undecided on what to do for vacation this year and while we would love to visit France and Spain this summer, we are not sure if it will happen at this point. But it does not hurt to plan and dream, does it?

One of the areas we want to visit is Dordogne and while we want to go to Bordeux, countryside around it seems very nice as well, think of movie Chocolat. I found a very nice rental, 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage for some $180 per night in medieval village and I just started looking...

Inside the home you'll find:

* gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a sub-zero freezer, two refrigerator drawers, and a dishwasher; the highlight of the kitchen is the gourmet La Canche gas stove--a stove that professional cooks in Europe use throughout France

* beautifully restored wood beams in every living space

* a mix of modern and antique furnishings, including a few pieces that are hundreds of years old

* thick, perfectly restored stone walls

* unique window shapes and ornate iron work on the exterior

* romantic master suite with queen-size bed and a private bathroom, including a claw foot tub overlooking the Dordogne Valley.

* 2 additional guest rooms, one featuring another queen-size bed with both antique and modern furnishings; another with two twin beds; both are lovely and very comfortable

* Sleeps 5-6 people

* Antique tile floor on the mail level, recently refurbished hardwood floors throughout the remainder of the cottage

* Modern bathroom on the second level, including a luxurious shower cabin and a towel warmer; private views of the nearby hillside as well

* relaxing TV/movie room where a TV, DVD player and leather sofa await

* both a washer and a dryer on the premises

* gorgeous, mature, terraced gardens overlooking the Dordogne River Valley.
