Introduction

A magnificent traditional 'Perigourdine' country house with private pool and panoramic views over the medieval town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, a few minutes walk away. The house offers that perfect little haven of peace and tranquillity in a grand setting.

The property sits high above the town, set back from a single country lane. Superb views over the town and countryside from the dining and pool terraces.

Sarlat-la-Canéda is one of the prettiest towns in France; winding, cobbled streets with houses dating back to the 15th century. Stroll down from the house to all amenities including an array of traditional restaurants and lovely, pavement cafés and bars.

The large open plan living room is full of traditional character with quality decor and furnishings, from the pictures and tapestry to the magnificent château stone fireplace. Here you can relax and unwind in comfortable surroundings. Lay your table and enjoy a meal prepared in a well equipped modern fitted kitchen. The lounge leads out through French doors to the landscaped gardens, private terraces, BBQ and private pool.

There is a superb master bedroom suite with hand-crafted gothic king-size bed, television, dressing room and curved stairs leading majestically to double stained glass doors and beyond to the large ensuite bathroom.

Lovely private grounds with several dining terraces and large pool 9m x 4m with surrounding deck.

From the house it is just a short walk down the hill into the centre of Sarlat-la-Canéda with its many restaurants, cafés, bars and shops. Everything is nearby so you can leave the car behind with no cares about driving, parking or having a drink with dinner.

Situated between the rivers Dordogne and Vézère, Sarlat-la-Canéda is a medieval market town and capital of the Périgord Noir. Stroll along the paved lanes of the old town or sample the Périgordian gastronomy, amongst the finest France has to offer.

Location

The property is located on a single-track lane running through pretty countryside, only a 5 minutes walk from the centre of Sarlat-la-Canéda.

Situated between the rivers Dordogne and Vézère, Sarlat-la-Canéda is a medieval market town and capital of the Périgord Noir. Stroll along the paved lanes of the old town or sample the Périgordian gastronomy, amongst the finest France has to offer. Take in the hustle and bustle, the smells and noise of the market, sit at one of the cafés and watch the world go by.

Sarlat-la-Canéda has something for everyone and is a perfect base from which to set off and explore the sites and surrounding countryside. Steeped in history and pre-history, counting the world famous site of Lascaux within easy reach. From the dawn of time man has left his mark in what must surely be described as one of the most beautiful parts of France. From cave dwellings to fairy tale castles the views and scenery are breath-taking.


Sarlat-la-Canéda Tennis Club - less than five minutes drive away and welcomes visitors for a modest fee.

Lots of Golf courses nearby. Nearest is Montfort about 15 minutes.

Hot air ballooning, various local companies. Micro-lite air craft, and light aircraft flights available from Domme Sarlat-la-Canéda Airport.

Paintball, very good site near Roque Gageac. Roque-Gageac (approx 15 minutes) is a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. Good canoeing centre here.

Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the South bank of the river, it is best known for its typical Quercy architecture and Romanesque priory. Further Romanesque art at the Saint-Pierre church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies. There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day! Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations. It has some of the world's most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallisations. And the cave-lined Vézère valley has been classified as a heritage site by UNESCO. The most well-known of all is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940. The paintings date back some 17,000 years.

Brantôme is a very popular and pretty town. Well worth a visit, there are several churches and abbeys to discover as well as the Musée de Reve et Miniatures. Perhaps the best thing to do in the town is to firstly take a stroll along the beautiful balustraded river banks and then to choose your evening fayre at one of the many excellent restaurants.

Just North of Brantôme is the hamlet of Villars. The hamlet itself is unexciting, but it is surrounded by lovely countryside and is a great base from which to explore Château de Puyguilhem and Saint-Jean-de-Côle. The Grottes de Villars (pre-historic caves) are just past the hamlet and were discovered in 1958 and feature cave paintings.

Canoeing on the Dordogne is hugely popular. There are rental centres on almost every curve and corner of the river. Some of the bigger centres are based at La Roque-Gageac, Martel, Argentat and Beynac.

Brive airport 40 minutes with flights to London City with Air France CityJet

Bergerac airport (Ryanair flights) approximately 90 minutes.

Reviews

« A splendid house in a superb location. We’ve been coming to France for years, but this was our best trip by far. There is something for everyone. We enjoyed the great food and peace and quiet, the children had lots to do and see. Five stars ! »  Edwards family, UK

« Loved the house and its location, no arguments who is driving and not drinking ! Great sitting out in the evenings in the market place watching the entertainers. We walked to town every morning for fresh Baguettes and croissants. Heaven. »  Hughes family, UK / Australia

P.S. We especially like your Master Bedroom. Very regal! »  Justin & Melinda, London

« Your house is delightful, we felt right at home. Your professional staff took very good care of us when we needed them. We loved exploring the Dordogne, and though we’ve seen a lot of France this area was by far our favorite. It was especially nice to relax in at home on the odd rainy day. Also being so close to the town made our dining out extra fun ! Hic ! »  Henderson family, New York

« The house and grounds are great and so its location, so convenient for evenings out. The locals were charming and made us feel very welcome, despite our limited French. We’ll come again! »  B & M Kuehn, USA

« We had a splendid holiday in your charming house. Loved the town, the area and especially the markets. The house manager was extremely helpful and recommended some super restaurants we would not have otherwise found. Our highlights apart from the house and Sarlat, was a kayak trip to see the chateaux from the Dordogne River. Thank you. »  Harrison family, Sydney

« We chose your house for our three week stay as it looked like a real home, unlike so many rental properties. We were all very comfortable. The master bedroom suite is amazing ! Loved being able to walk into the wonderful old town for dinner. »  P & P Johnson, UK
