About the House

This charming old stone cottage is Ideal for  two people but can accommodate up to four. It is located in the small and ancient village of Urval, in the heart of the Perigord Noir, one of the most beautiful regions of France that boasts the largest number of historic sites in France outside of Paris. The house looks out onto the village mill pond, a picturesque home to ducks and swans, and sits just below the imposing 11th century Romanesque fortress church.

From the front door on the narrow village street (see picture) one enters into a large country kitchen with a long farm table adequate for seating 6-8 people. The kitchen is fully equipped and also offers a washer and dryer. From the kitchen a few steps up lead into an enclosed private courtyard. From the courtyard one accesses the rest of the house: shower, dressing room, and WC to one side, and up a couple more steps to the spacious living room, with its ancient fireplace, old wooden floors, and furnished with antiques, comfortable chairs, a second dining table, a day-bed large enough for two, and with views looking out over the entire village. Adjoining the living room is the bedroom, with a double bed, antique chairs and armoire."
