Below a 9th century château, eleven kilometers from Woodsman’s Cabin, is a second lake in the midst of oak, chestnut, wild acacia and birch woodland, perfect for wild swimming. Perched on the edge, Fisherman’s Cabin was built with timber from Bob’s sawmill and much love. Inside, there’s a treasure trove of intriguing bits & bobs to keep you busy – from telescopes to microscopes, fishing rods to nature books, walkie talkies, art supplies and junk-shop gems.
Solar panels – and a waterwheel in the woods – power electric lights; a hot shower and compost loo are attached to the cabin. The kitchen is fully kitted out, the separate double is comfy and, upstairs, a fun mezzanine twin looks out over the water (good for kids as headroom is restricted!). Hire bikes with no hassle and cycle to the village of Augignac 3km away for fresh croissants, explore the lush, beautiful Périgord Vert area or simply cosy up in front of the wood-burning stove. A challenge for Asterix aficionados: a huge granite menhir, part of an ancient ring of standing stones, hides somewhere in the woods – there’s a real chance you’d be the first guests ever to find it.
