Log cabins to holiday in can be found all over the world, with many of them spread throughout Europe and the UK. Before you book your log cabin holiday, you need to make a few choices and decide where you would like your vacation to be.

If you have not stayed in an original log cabin before, then you have a massive treat awaiting you! Imagine being surrounded by the warmth and scent of real wood, assembled to create a luxurious abode full of all mod cons. Whether you wake early to sip your coffee on the doorstep; soaking up the surroundings and the feeling of pleasure that staying in a cabin gives you; or prefer to stay up late and into the early hours, watching the stars twinkling above your cabin roof; you are assured a very special holiday.

If the Dordogne appeals, how about making your log cabin adventure take place in South Western France? With the river of the same name running through it, the Dordogne is placed midway between the Loire Valley and the Pyrenees in Aquitaine.

It has a rich culinary heritage so is a great place for foodies to venture into. You can explore the market in Periqueux and fill your baskets with amazing delights such as local mushrooms, figs, goat’s cheese and even walnuts.

The cave paintings in Grotte de Lascaux should also not be missed. Not only will the children in the party, but the adults too, be amazed to view such prehistoric sights.

The time of year that you visit also tends to dictate what events will be taking place. Spring will not only bring with it heaps of local produce at the markets but plenty of local flora too. In the summer you will find it particularly busy and as the autumn approaches, the grape harvest will start to filter in.

As you can see, by combining a picturesque and delightful log cabin holiday with the area of the Dordogne, you really do have the best of both worlds. Whatever time of year you visit, you are going to find many delights and staying in a genuine log cabin will always be a real treat.
