Location

The property is located in open countryside, 10 minutes outside Sarlat-la-Canéda.

2 minutes to local bakery and grocery store and bowling.

Sarlat-la-Canéda is 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.

Brive airport 50 minutes.
Bergerac airport (Ryanair flights) approximately 90 minutes.

Reviews

« I would like to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house last week. We had a splendid time and were very well looked after by Jean-Louis and Rosselle. You may know that we hired Gerard, the Chef, for our last evening which was a great success. We can certainly recommend him for your other guests. »  Terry

« We have had a wonderful stay at your home. The gardens, views and the ambiance were spectacular in every way. Even with 16 people the first week, the house never seemed crowded. The location is excellent, close to all the Dordogne attractions, and I think we visited most of them. Adding to the experience was the Jack of all trades, your care-taker, what a terrific fellow. We enjoyed his advice, good humour and of course his vegetables. He is a real gem. Equally important was our experience with your maid, conscientious, sweet and very helpful.
Our dinner with your chef was spectacular. He was easy to work with, and we were very satisfied. We are happy to recommend him to future guests. All in all we really had a great time and loved our trip! »
