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!

Excellent WiFi and a good selection of English TV channels available. Forty five minutes drive from Brive airport, and convenient for the Dordogne and Lot regions. A few shops in Grolejac, but a good selection of supermarkets in Sarlat. Would highly recommend it.

It is very well equiped, and the owners gave us a charming welcome and were very helpful. We are a family of 3 generations, and the house, pool and surroundings suited us very well. We visited several castles & dined in wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed our afternoon in canoes, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. We would all love to come again sometime

I do think the pool man visiting every other day a tad excessive and the chemicals did turn blonde hair green, swimming garments had a green tinge as did my nails! The pool air circulation was only on for two of the fourteen days we were there - rentals i've had in the past has a pool person once a week and the air pumps were on all the time. That said, we had fun fun fun and the green tinges have gone! The view from the house is stunning and the house sits proudly above the small hamlet/village but the main road was a busy road though no noise polution problems! The kitchen was very well stocked, so much so, there was no space left for our dry food items but we shuffled things around. Huge fridge with freezer space. Gas hob, we couldn't get oven to work but there was another cooker in the small house - it worked for us and was fine, wasn't worth bothering the owner. Laundry room which was great. If, like us, you want to stay put and just enjoy sun, pool, games, relaxation, it was perfect. Ample sun loungers. Watered the plants/shrubs for the family, save them visiting. Least we could do.The owner and his family were on hand should we have needed, we did on one occasion and all was well. Communication from booking and currently is fabulous, Thibault is very patient and welcoming. 13km to the nearest supermarket but it is open till 12 noon on Sundays which is handy to know. All in all we had a great holiday, lots of fun and enjoyed our time there. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a large house (with small house as a bonus, sleeps up to four in there). I would recommend the owner purchase more fans - there was only one in the house and some nights were stiflingly hot for everyone no matter which room you slept in, even if the shutters were shut all day. Definitely needs more electric fans for the hot months. Great house, great pool, great location, delightful family owners. Not enough room on here to say everthing but would recommend to anyone who has a large family group and wants a large pool (steps to pool get VERY hot in the sun, have a refillable bottle on hand to cool rails with water)! Loved my holiday here, thank you Thibault!
