Le Marronnier – Beautiful property, Private Heated Pool, Jacuzzi, calm location situated in the Perigord Noir – truffle countryside region of the Dordogne.
Looking for a top quality rental property with amazing features, fully equipped and beautifully furnished? Then look no further than the Marronnier.

Please note; if you are only renting the main house for 8 or less people then the Cottage remains empty during your stay, it is an extra available only for your group and pricing reflects this. Additional photos are available.
Le Marronnier is situated at the back of a tiny hamlet in its own grounds the Le Marronnier is in a peaceful setting. There’s plenty of space/seating/sun loungers for everyone. Large outdoor covered terrace with plancha, BBQ, outdoor sink, fridge.
From the large picture window of the main house you can see the walled garden which is a little haven with its heated pool, gazabo and seating. The wafting lavender and raised wooden garden beds make this the perfect place to relax and unwind.
