Make a holiday rental home or villa in Vitrac, France your home away from home

The rustic village of Vitrac stands among the forests of Perigord Noir, just 5km from Sarlat. Located right in the heart of the most beautiful and historic region of the Dordogne, known as the ‘pre-historic capital of Europe’, Vitrac is the perfect base for exploring the castles, caves and chateaux of the Dordogne, not to mention the charming medieval market towns and stunning countryside the region is famed for.

Things to do in Vitrac, France

Family holidays to Vitrac are always a hive of activity. The whole area is crossed by footpaths, cycling routes and bridle paths, taking you through the forested hills and valleys to some of the more remote chateaux, cave and castles of Perigord Noir. Many days can happily be spent touring the countryside under the power of your own steam, and the beautiful Dordogne Valley is a wonderful place to fish, canoe or simply potter about on the river. Hot air balloon rides are a particularly special way to explore the region, and one which you will always remember with awe.

The region is also awash with public tennis courts, golf courses and even more obscure yet exciting facilities like aerial ropes courses for the fearless. Visitors can even enjoy paragliding from a holiday rental gite in Vitrac, which is a sure way to reinvigorate and excite during your holiday.

A holiday rental villa in Vitrac is the ideal place from which to explore the many marvels of the Dordogne. There is no need to organise your family each morning in order to make sure you can get to the stunning villages of La Roque-Gageac, Domme or La Roque St-Christophe, the Lascaux Caves or the castles of Baynac as all are within 20km, and remarkably easy to reach from Vitrac accommodation.

Regardless of how long you stay in self catering Vitrac accommodation, the huge appeal of Sarlat will be impossible to resist. Sarlat is not only the local capital, home to some of the finest restaurants, shops and galleries, but also looks like an open-air medieval museum. Sarlat’s medieval heritage is fantastic, with perfectly preserved buildings dating back many centuries providing the town with an almost fairytale atmosphere, despite being a thriving market town.

The period between late May and early October sees daily temperatures reaching a warm, yet not sweltering 28°C on a good day, and rain is extremely rare. The spring and autumn months are perfect for walking, riding or cycling holidays, as the rain remains infrequent, and daily temperatures are wonderfully balmy.

Fabulous house! Fabulous location!

5 of 5
Very well equipped house in Vitrac, situated approx ten minutes drive from Sarlat, Domme and La Rocque- Gageauc. Banyan and castlenaud castles, and the gardens of Marqueyssac all worth a visit. Monpazier is approx 1 hour away but enroute to Bergerac airport. Very modern bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen dining area. Plenty of towels (including pool towels) and comfortable sun loungers. We even used the pool at the end of September(un heated!). Walking distance to a couple of restaurants, snack bar and two canoe hire places- a great way to spend half a day! Nearest boulangerie is just over 1 mile away. Big supermarket on the outskirts of Sarlat ( approx 6 min drive). The house had everything we needed and more! I have been to the area a number of times and this is the best location and accommodation I have had! Arnaud met us at the property to welcome us- thank you!

Very nice Gite.

4 of 5
What's good Lovely and very beautiful Gite. Plenty of space. Privacy around pool. Lots of appliances in kitchen. Close to the town and shops. It really was only a 10-15 minute walk to Sarlat, one of the most beautiful town in existence. Brilliant overall, would thoroughly recommend to anyone; young, old and in between! What's bad Needed to hand over €1500 in cash, or in our case, a blank uk cheque. Despite promising it would be returned via the post, it was never received meaning we had to cancel it (which incurred a fee). In addition to that, we felt that handing over a blank cheque was very risky...
