Simeyrols in the Beautiful Perigord Noir

The tranquil village of Simeyrols is situated in the heart of the beautiful Périgord Noir region of the Dordogne, midway between the market town of Souillac in the Lot and the fantastic mediaeval town of Sarlat with its cobbled streets and lively bars and restaurants. This area, in the “golden triangle” of the Dordogne, offers a huge range of activities for the holidaymaker and lover of French country life. Peace and quiet in an idyllic rural haven, bustling market towns nearby, places of scenic and historic interest, sporting activities and, above all, the wonderful cuisine, made with fresh local produce, for which France is renowned.

The name “Simeyrols” comes from the word “cime”, meaning hilltop and the village is surrounded by undulating woodland and fields, many of which have marked walking routes through beautiful countryside. Only 2 km away, the picturesque village of Carlux has a choice of three restaurants and a bar, with shady terrace, butcher’s, baker’s and post office.

Many of the departments of France are named after the main river that runs through them and the Dordogne is no exception. Simeyrols is 5 minutes’ drive from the Dordogne River at Rouffillac, with opportunities for swimming, canoeing and fishing or simply watching the river flow by. The disused railway, which extends for 30 km from Cazoulès to Sarlat, has been converted to a scenic cycle path which runs alongside the river at this point.

No visit to France would be complete without a visit to a market and Simeyrols is in close proximity to many of them, both large and small. The Saturday morning market in Sarlat is a must, but smaller markets are to be found on almost every day of the week in the surrounding towns and villages. Salignac, just up the road from Simeyrols, holds an evening market on Fridays in high season, with tables available to sit and taste a wide range of local food and drink. (Try an aperitif made from local walnuts, peaches or chestnuts. Sample some pâté de foie gras or delicious “magret de canard” (breast of duck)

Simeyrols is also close to several beautiful gardens; Cadiot, Manoir d’Eyrignac, (offering picnics with musical accompaniment) and Marqueyssac, (with candlelit walks in high season).

If you have an interest in history, you might want to visit one of the many castles in the area (Beynac, home to Richard the Lionheart, Milandes, where the opera singer Josephine Baker lived, Castelnaud, with its mediaeval museum). The famous cave paintings at Lascaux or the prehistoric site of La Roque St. Christophe, with nearly half a mile of caves over 5 galleries also provide interesting days out.

Keen golfers will not be disappointed with The Souillac Country Club, or the Domaine de Rochebois at Vitrac and the more adventurous sporting types might even opt for a hot air balloon ride.

Hopefully this short guide will provide some idea of what awaits you in Simeyrols and the beautiful Périgord Noir. Come and find out for yourself!

Right from our initial enquiry Chris and Kate's attention to detail was spot on . When we arrived we were delighted to see that the trend continued. The farmhouse was exactly as portrayed on the website and spotlessly clean with great WIFI The house was well equipped with everything we needed and more, and the grounds are beautiful. The trampoline was well used as was the ping pong ( kids were delighted ) Even though it was out of season there is so much to do and Chris and Kate have provided a very in-depth guide to everything from best parking to restaurants and scenic drives.The location was spot on for visiting the highlights of the Dordogne with our favourites, Sarlat-La-Caneda, Beynac-et-Cazenac, and La Roque-Gageac all very close by. We were sad to leave but are excited about going back this summer when we can enjoy the pool . A big thank you once again to our hosts.

Right from making the booking through to our stay, everything was fantastic! Straight forward reservation direct with the owners, easy to follow directions to the gite and a very warm welcome upon arrival. The gite was clean, bright and well laid out with plenty of space for our things. It has everything you need for a very comfortable stay including a fantastic book full of ideas and recommendations for days out and places to visit. Outside there is a wonderful, clean and warm pool for guests to enjoy with stunning views across the valley. The location of the gite is perfect in terms of exploring the local area. Close to the Dordogne river with all its attractions and activities and also really close to Sarlat which is a truly magical place. So much to explore and enough restaurants to be able to eat out every night for a month!! We were so lucky to have discovered this place and hope to be able to return.

All the top attractions are an easy drive or short taxi ride (kindly provided by Chris) away. We loved exploring the area and indulging in lazy lunches in Sarlat, Domme, Beynac etc, then picking up wonderful local produce from the close by hypermarket, or one of the numerous daily markets held in the nearby villages, to enjoy back on our terrace with a bottle of wine watching the sunset. We can highly recommend packing a picnic and hiring a canoe to drift down the river taking in a completely different view of the numerous chateaux as you wind you way slowly along. There are also plenty of lovely walks from Le Fournill, which you can end with a cooling dip on your return. Chris and Kate are the prefect hosts, eager to help and offer advice on local attractions / restaurants, but more than that, they are genuinely nice, fun people with a love of the area and keen for you to enjoy it too. We will definitely return and have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Kate's wonderful Le Fournill.
