This is the largest (110m2) of the three family-focused, single-level cottages at Domaine de la Dolce, offering accommodation for 4 adults and 3-4 children (plus baby) with 2 master bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each with roll top bath & shower. Plenty of space inside for a large family or two families sharing, which continues outside. The spacious, independent and south-facing terrace, hedged at both sides, provides privacy whilst still being open to the large meadow. The perfect recipe for a wonderful family holiday!

About the Property

La Sauterelle is a gîte finished to extremely high standards, with idyllic scenery on the doorstep. You will never get tired of the views over the surrounding woodland and the large meadow from the terrace which can be accessed from both master bedrooms, the living/dining area and the living room. Soak up the sunshine, the tranquillity and your holiday will be magical.

The owner has created a safe and child friendly environment for her guests to allow them imaginative play, the possibility to run free and wild, to play amongst nature; a peaceful and tranquil "Home from Home" for Mums and Dads to unwind and relax from the hectic daily life; a perfect base to discover and explore the outstanding beauty of the Lot region and neighbouring Dordogne here in South West France.

La Sauterelle and the other two properties – La Luciole and La Girolle – are set within 2,25 ha of meadows and woodland, idyllic holiday homes, with the whole family and/or friends in mind. The indoor playroom is always a great hit and outside the children’s paradise continues at the playground in the woodlands. While they play on the meadow, the kids are always in full view of their parents who can finally relax, manage to read some books or just soak up the sunshine. The heated swimming pool (30°C) is fenced with child-proof gates to protect your little ones.  If adults need some pampering then why not book a massage, Reiki treatment or a yoga lesson at the comfort of your gîte.  The three cottages can be rented together if you are planning a holiday with friends and/or family. 

Message from the owner: “Just as important as the happiness of the children is that Mums & Dads can finally relax and enjoy their holidays as well in this peaceful and family friendly environment. All you will hear during the day are the birds in the many trees surrounding the gîtes, the laughter of happy children…..and in the evening maybe the hooting owl.”


We have many more five star reviews on our website which you can read by following the link, here is a small selection:

"Our third stay was as good as ever and we have yet more happy memories to add to our collection from La Dolce. Thank you Marion, Ray and Katie in particular for your Sunday party, it was a fantastic afternoon and for a lovely holiday, that as usual, was over far too quickly." 

"This location is perfect for families with young children. All equipment was provided and the games room is very well stocked. We flew over from England and only needed to bring clothes and personal items – no need to pack a car full of baby equipment which is a nice change. Marion and Ray are very accommodating and responded very quickly to any additional needs we had. The pool is great! Very peaceful setting which feels safe for kids. All in all we would describe this a stress-free holiday destination for those with very young children in a beautiful part of France."
