Strolling around the village is a joy, with the narrow streets, the weekly market, the tiny village chapel and the speciality shops.The River Dordogne and it's riverside beach and canoeing is also within walking distance of the cottage.
The ancient bastide of Domme rises up behind the village and several footpaths lead you through the picturesque countryside to one of the most beautiful villages in France.

I do not think it an exaggeration to describe this part of the Dordogne as one of the most beautiful and unique places in France.

This is a beautiful cottage which has been renovated to a very high standard especially the kitchen and living room area. It is set back on what turned out to be a very busy little village probably due to the time of year of our visit. It is perfectly situated to explore the many attractions in the Dordogne area especially the river which is within easy walking distance. We really enjoyed walking down to the local Patisserie every morning to get that delicious french bread!! There were only 2 negatives for us. The cottage is situated on what we thought was a quiet back street but turned out to be a busy rat run through the village. Not too impressed with cars whizzing by as early as 4 am. We live in a very quiet spot back home. We booked this cottage because it had a small patio area but on arrival we found out that this was across the road and was virtually unusable. Having said all this we thoroughly enjoyed our week . We found Paul the owner very accommodating and would definitely recommend this lovely cottage. Read more
The cottage is situated on a little lane that leads up to a few houses and back down to the village centre. It is not possible to drive very fast, 30km limit, large vehicles prohibited, by any stretch of the imagination I would not describe it as 'a rat run'.
The patio is across the lane from the cottage and down stone steps, it has a table and chairs, is secluded and private at a level below the parking. Shaded by an old lime tree it is a nice spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, past guests have also made use of the little BBQ.

We had a fantastic time at the cottage, the pictures do not do justice to how lovely the cottage was. The village has everything you need and Paul was very helpful. Highly recommended!

The Cottage was absolutely lovely, well appointed and with great ambience which certainly gave us the feeling of authentically living in France. It was just perfect for us being so close to the local shops in the centre of Cenac while at the same time having a pastoral view (and a great climb to Domme).It was also so central with easy driving to all the major attractions and each day we would return to Cottage Le Capiol via a different route. Thank you Paul for your hospitality and what a wonderful part of France.

We had a wonderful stay at Cottage Capiol with our friends. We really felt at home and the cottage had everything that we needed for our week stay. We really loved the old cottage and the village of Cenac, just a wonderful experience. The whole booking process and information was really good and
Paul was always available for any information we needed. We felt very confident when booking our stay.
We explored the whole area and found so much to see and do. We were there for market day at Cenac, it was great to experience local market.
We enjoyed wondering around Cenac and Domme. The village had everything we needed, we had some lovely dinners, all within walking distance from the cottage.
We have taken away some wonderful memories from our stay at Cottage Capiol.
"Le Capiol is a place I would recommend to others."

Our stay in Le Capiol was just great. We left Paris, train to Brive ( parking ticket at Brive - don't park at the station )and arrived in Cenac, followed Paul's instructions to the cottage - spot on, and settled in for 4 days. The cottage is a delight, beautifully renovated, and had everything you could imagine to make our stay complete.Paul had all the info needed to find your way around, and Domme / Beynac etc are just great places to visit.
"Lovely cottage with Character in the Beautiful Dordogne"

While living in the UK, many of our friends recommended a visit to the Dordogne. It did not disappoint, The area is beautiful with plenty to do. The cottage was very clean and welcoming with lots of character in a lovely, quiet village setting. We were traveling with our 20-something sons and the only drawback was that it did not have Wifi. All other amenities were there along with a nice bottle of wine to help us wind down after a long day of traveling from the us. We took nice walks to Cenac and Domme, saw castles, visited caves kayaked on the river and ate wonderful meals in Sarlat and other lovely towns. Having great sunny weather added to a great experience.

Cenac is a 'living' French village oozing with charm and character in a lush, beautiful part of the Dordogne. The village is ideally situated near a multitude of outstanding natural and historic attractions. Cottage Le Capiol is in the heart of Cenac with good views over the village, walking distance to all amenities, restaurants & shops. The Cottage is delightful; very comfortable, full of character and well equipped. We stayed for 7 months and were very sad to leave. It was a joy to watch the seasons change from the main window. Bikes were our only form of transport during our stay and we had great fun exploring the area - still some to explore. A car helps to expand boundaries of exploration! The owner, Paul is a good communicator, attentive and easily contactable. He addressed all our queries promptly and helped resolve issues relating to our long stay.
If you want a truly authentic, wonderful French experience we would recommend Cenac, its locals and Cottage Le Capiol.

Cottage Le Capiol is the perfect place to stay while exlploring the historic and beautiful Dordogne region, but you will need a car as there is little public transport available. Even getting a taxi is difficult.
We were met at the station at Salat by Paul (the well organised and friendly owner) and he drove us the 15 kms to Cenet.
The cottage has been carefully restored and has all the mod cons without losing its centuries old character. We would love to stay there again when we visit for a longer holiday, hopefully soon.

The cottage was very comfortable for two couples and placed in a lovely village with markets and shops which were a short stroll in the morning for breakfast croissants. The villagers were friendly which delighted my father whose role was to collect the croissants each morning.
It was well set up and made our stay very enjoyable. I would recommend this cottage to others wishing to enjoy a lovely week in a pretty region of France.

Communication with the owner was good, the cottage we found just as described. It has everything you need and is in a quiet lane yet just a walk to shops, restaurant and the river. The village is really nice and all the places to go and visit are just a short drive. We just loved the character of the place.
