The cottages at La Burague are located at the edge of Cénac-et-Saint-Julien, along a humble municipal road that was once a Roman road connecting Cahors to Limoges by way of Sarlat. So you are surrounded by peace and quiet, just 1 km from the local shops. We are on the southern bank of the Dordogne River, mere hundreds of metres away. From your windows, you can see Domme, perched on its rocky peak, which is a lovely fortified bastide with 800 residents but that sees 180,000 visitors passing through its gates each year.

At La Burague, there was a mill acknowledged in 1460, although most of the current structure dates back to 1758. Just 15 years ago, the place was in ruins. The restoration began in 2002 and was carried out in accordance with the spirit of the site using the original materials, natural paint and fillers, and preserving the roof structure that reaches a height of nearly 10 m in the upstairs rooms.
