The Dordogne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist.

Its a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

Many great local towns to visit with traditional street markets, wine outlets and a wide range of excellent restaurants; in particular, Villeréal and Issigéac.

Large hypermarkets and further amenities in Villeneuve.

Bergerac (40 minutes) is a very picturesque town on the Dordogne river with almost endless pavement cafés and restaurants.

Reviews

« We had a wonderful 3 weeks in this beautifully situated house surrounded by Golden Orioles, barn owls and deer. The seafood from the local supermarket was exceptional. Excellent restaurants in Monflanquin. All in all a superb holiday in a lovely house. »  Brian, Betty, David & Ann

« Fantastic holiday, beautiful surroundings and house. Everything you could need is here and we re leaving utterly relaxed and chilled. Lying by the pool, soaking in the sun and the views and watching the kids play in the pool was perfect. We have stayed in a few French places but this has been by far the best. Thank you »  Fitzpatricks

« We feel totally regenerated after the most amazingly relaxing week. Jayan is stunning, both inside and out, helped by having incredible sunshine. The perfect calm time before the arrival of our first baby in just over a month-time!
Thank you very much. »  Ronnie, Sam, Sarah, Ted, Joanna & Simon (London, UK)

« We have had a lovely relaxing 2 weeks at Jayan. We have really enjoyed staying at your charming house. So peaceful, our children loved the wildlife in the vicinity. They saw deers, hares, wonderful birds of prey and squirrels (we don't have them in Guernsey!). Parc en Ciel was worth a visit our kids declared it awesome and better than Walibi which saved us a trip to Agen! Loved Monflanquin and the medieval festival. Would recommend 'La Bastide' (crepes) and 'La Baldonia' (pizzas) for family friendly dining in Monflanquin. The night market (Thursdays) was fun too.
We have been renting in South West of France for nearly 20 years now and can honestly say that this is one of the most comfortable and well set up homes we have stayed in. Sharp knives and decent wine glasses.
Thank you for your time and advice prior to and during our visit, much appreciated. Thanks too to Patricia and Colin for keeping everything nice and tidy during our stay - lovely people.
We are very fortunate that you see fit to share Jayan. The peace and the calm of the place along with the spectacular views, not to mention the pool, make it a very special place indeed.
We have to come back again! Many, many thanks. »  Kieran, Jackie, Isabella and Freya (St Martin's, Guernesey, Channel Islands)

« We have loved holidaying in your beautiful home! The pool was a godsend to our two teenage boys as was the film and book library on the not so sunny days. We would love to stay again. Not sure I'll be recommending this one - keeping safely to myself! »  Sarah, Mike, Levi and Ethen (Wales, UK)

« One of the best places we have stayed at! It accommodated us with great services and everything we needed for a pleasurable stay. The house is beautiful and made us all feel at home. The pool was great and very clean, it kept us cool after many nice mornings out in the beautiful South of France. The many videos and DVDs were great like the pool games and board games. The beautiful surroundings made us feel very privileged to be here. Another great part of Jayan was the lovely people who own it and the housekeepers, we all hope to be back again, it was amazing! Thank you for everything. »  Claudine, Ian, Michael, Jacky, Katy, Millie and Abbie

« Thank you for a fabulous stay at Jayan. You really have the most beautiful house and pool with such incredible views in every direction. It is also probably one of the best equipped houses we have stayed in and we have been renting in France for approaching 20 years now! It is a very special place.
Thank you also for your help and attention before and during our stay. The time and trouble you took to help us was much appreciated. The welcome pack was very generous and very thoughtful. I would willingly recommend your house to as a wonderful place to spend some time. »  Lee family - UK

« We had a great time in this lovely accommodation. »  Thomas family
