Location

The property is located on a private 9 hectare estate in open countryside, 15 minutes from Sarlat-la-Canéda.
Nearby amenities in Montignac 8 km (supermarkets, shops, banks, café bars and restaurants) and La Chapelle Aubareil, 2 km (small shop, café/bar).

The main attraction is Sarlat-la-Canéda; a charming and busy traditional town with all amenities which is the capital of Perigord. Many good restaurants and cafés to discover. Excellent market on Saturday.

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

Paintball, very good site near La Roque-Gageac. La Roque-Gageac (approx 25 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 Rêve 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.

Bergerac airport (Ryanair flights) approximately 90 minutes.

Reviews

« What a wonderful house! What a wonderful place! What a wonderful holiday!!!
 We long to come back - the sooner the better. After 2 weeks all stress has evaporated. We have felt welcome, safe and well tutored due to our hosts. »  

« We had a really super holiday. Your houses are beautiful. The prefect French retreat. The children (all 9!) thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pools and the space. Two weeks was not enough to see and experience everything the Dordogne has to offer. »  Cant family

« A superb house in a superb setting. The accommodation is excellent - second to none. Our hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable, ever willing and helpful to ensure that our visit was as enjoyable as possible. The area is both stunning and spectacular, steeped in history. »  

« This was the 5th year we have stayed ... & we've already booked twice next year! We have stayed in all the different houses, & they are all excellent. If we have a large group our favourite house is La Bastide, the restored barn. It has such character, sleeps up to 10 people, & lacks absolutely nothing. If we are with another couple or two - or even by ourselves - then La Grangette is our choice. Again, lacks nothing, & is very private. 
We love the airconditioning (VERY necessary this year!), the well-equipped kitchens, the electric beds (!) and the beautiful swimming pools, which are cleaned daily. I can't think of a thing we would change.
 But best of all are the owners, Martine, Pierre & Pascale. They are so helpful & thoughtful, so friendly - it's a real wrench to leave this heavenly spot! »  Sue, New Zealand

« We have just returned from a wonderful week at the house. It is really lovely, immaculately clean, spacious, very well equipped and well presented with lovely grounds & view, and of course, a fantastic pool. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed!
 Pierre (who speaks fluent English) could not have been more helpful and he made us feel very welcome. We will always remember him for all the help he extended towards us - he truly went out of his way to aid us. »  Daneesh, Canada

« We were so fortunate to find this gem when planning a trip for our group of 13. Not only was the setting gorgeous, the accommodations fabulous, the food divine, but our hosts, Pierre, Martine and Pascale were the best ever. They had planned a whole week for us, filled with wine tastings, visits to ancient villages and tours of caves and other wonderful sites. They were so generous and helpful. The property is breathtaking and I could have stayed there for a month. Maybe, next time. There are a variety of houses, so I would recommend this for anyone, whether a large group, such as ours, or a family or a couple. They can meet your needs whatever. What a find... »  Susan, Corrales

« To stay at Bastide de la Foret is to immerse yourself in provencal charm and luxury. It is ideally located in the heart of the Dordogne near many of France's most beautiful and medieval villages. There are nearby vineyards, prehistoric caves, and castles to explore. The accommodations are the happy combination of antique ambience and modern comfort. No detail has been overlooked to assure a perfect stay. »  

« After having been home for a few weeks we asked ourselves how the time at Basite de la Foret could have been better...then we realized it couldn't have. The best part would have to be the friendship we made with Pierre, Martine and Pascale, the owners of the estate. They were very friendly and helpful with every detail. They went out of their way to make our stay exceptional and it helped so much that they could speak English.
The houses themselves were exceptional...most built in the mid-1700's with beautiful stone roofs that are a specialty of the area. The country side is so green and peaceful. We stayed for a week and they helped us explore the areas points of interest. Our group of eleven also enjoyed the wonderful home cooking...regional recipes from the area. This was one of the most beautiful places in the French countryside we have ever seen...bested only by the owners themselves. »  Roger, New Mexico

« We had a lovely holiday there. It is a nice place, well equipped, comfortable and quiet. I shall be checking Pure France's website in the future! »  Wotton family - Petworth, UK
