About Jane Finneran
About you: I live here in the farmhouse next door with my Irish terrier Murphy. We came to escape the rat race several years ago, and our project was to plant a truffle grove and have a rental gite, both of which we have accomplished. Its a very beautiful and peaceful part of France to live in. I will be on hand for any help and advice you may need, whilst being discreet and leaving you in peace to enjoy your holiday.
Jane Finneran purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Jane Finneran chose Sérignac
Situated in the beautiful Cahors wine region, perfect for walkers and cyclists, it's a perfect getaway from the rat race. Unspoilt countryside, plenty of beautiful Bastide villages to explore and the stunning Lot Valley and river. There are vineyards dotted all over where you can taste the famous 'Malbec' wine of the region. There's hardly any traffic or noise so perfect for a peaceful getaway, yet surrounded by plenty of good restaurants and things to do.
What makes this Cottage unique
A very romantic getaway for couples, our gite has been stylishly furnished to a high standard. You will find it extremely comfortable including quality white Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy white towels. The gite stays cool inside during our hot summers so sleeping is never a problem. The very pretty shady terrace is where you will spend most of your time relaxing or dining al fresco. The luxury salt water pool is exclusively yours during your stay with beautiful views over the countryside. There is no light pollution so at night the stars can be amazing! There is French and English television and a dvd player with plenty of films to choose from and wifi. Even though away from everything, you are no more than 10 minutes away from the supermarkets and restaurants. In our village of Serignac there is a new Restaurant/Bar and grocery shop for all your essentials 2 minutes drive away. They have fresh bread and pastries every morning too.

Relaxing holiday September 2019
A beautiful little gite in a beautiful part of the country. The swimming pool is fabulous and the views from the sun deck are stunning. Jane the owner is charming and gave some great recommendations of places and restaurants to visit.
Our weeks stay at La PetiteTruffle just wasn’t long enough! A very pleasant and comfortable stay at this beautiful gite in a stunning part of the french countryside Jane the owner was very helpful and friendly with some good recommendations for places to visit and eat. But what made this gite extra special was the amazing salt water pool perfect for relaxing in or by it was truly wonderful! We would very happily recommend this lovely gite without hesitation.
A week in 2019 heatwave
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at le petite truffe. Warm welcome and kind and helpful hosts. We were worried about having no aircon but despite the heatwave the rooms stayed cool enough. The salt water pool was fabulous.
peace, perfect peace
From the moment we arrived at La Petite Truffe we knew this was going to be a five star review. There was a lovely welcome from Jane, the house was immaculate and beautiful and the azure swimming pool was calling! The situation was so peaceful, all we could hear was the buzzin' of the bees in the lavender and the birdsong from the nearby woods. A thoughtful welcome basket greeted us in the kitchen, pool towels were provided, a comfy bed, laundry facilities, a means to watch the World Cup final (!) and everything we needed for an instantly relaxing fortnight. Jane was brilliant helping with a medication problem I experienced and kindly made some restaurant recommendations and reservations on our behalf. We have to mention Murphy, who we looked forward to seeing every morning and who we still miss ....
La Petite Truffe is one of those rare finds that we would selfishly like to keep a secret, but we are delighted to be able to share our truly wonderful holiday experience - if you are looking for comfort, peace, thoughtful but discreet owners, stunning surroundings and the chance to relax and recharge, this is the place for you.
Thank you Murphy, Darren and JANE!
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful gite in the middle of June and were blessed with hot summer sunshine all week. Having the pool was pure luxury. The gite is very comfortable and Jane has made it very cosy with lovely touches. We virtually lived outside, and cooked dinners on the bbq but the gite is very cool when it gets too hot. We visited a local restaurant called Le Caillau twice because the food and ambience was so good. It is owned by friends of Jane and Darren and we would highly recommend.
Thank you Jane for a fabulous week and we will be back!
La Petite Truffe was our perfect holiday hideaway
La Petite Truffe is a superb holiday accommodation ideally based in Serignac Lot in the heart of France. Our hosts Jane and Darren were professional, friendly and respectful in every way.
Following our in depth holiday search with our bespoke requirements for our ideal holiday in France, we were not let down with our choice. The premises surpassed our high expectations.
From the highest of cleanliness, quality bedding, large spotlessly clean private pool and fast wifi.
The tranquil surroundings along with the perfect location for walking, safe cycling or driving to the nearby hamlets and market towns, La Petite Truffe had it all.
Our personalised welcome pack was a lovely bonus. The gite is a cool retreat after a day sunbathing by the large secluded pool.
Sipping a glass of local brew on the patio, watching and listening to the wildlife and seeing the sun going down we think life just doesn’t get any better.
If you want peace and tranquillity just give La Petite Truffe a try and you won’t be disappointed.
Will we return? a resounding yes.
