About the property

Well equipped 2 bedroom gite with 2 ensuite bathrooms in an ideal location

The gite has full and exclusive use of the the pool and gardens and has its own courtyard for 'Al Fresco' dining. It is a five minute stroll to 3 restaurants, a bar, and bakery and a ten minute walk to the beautiful River Dordogne with fishing, birdwatching and watersports.

The two bedroom gite is ideal for four adults or a family, with a double and twin-bedded room, both with en-suite facilities. The twin beds can be joined together and made into a super kingsize bed if required. All cleaning, bedlinen, towels and pool towels are provided free of charge. Clean linen will be provided during the second week of a two week stay. For a party of 6 a studio sleeping 2 people adjoins the property and can be hired for an additional charge. (Please see HomeAway.co.uk #1931069 )

A fully equipped kitchen has all the comforts of modern day living with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, toaster, washing machine, cooker, microwave and is fully stocked with kitchen equipment should you wish to do your own cooking. A dining table and four chairs ensure you can eat your meals comfortably inside.

The lounge area has seating for four people, a large flat screen TV with UK Freesat, one French news channel and DVD player. There is free Wifi. A large range of books and DVDs are available to borrow along with a small quantity of games and puzzles. For the more energetic there is a Games Barn with tabletennis, table football and darts.

Outside a totally private and sheltered courtyard offers the opportunity for ‘al fresco’ dining with table, chairs, parasol and recliners. During the summer months there is the added delight of an 8 x 4 metre pool and good range of reclining chairs and large parasol to enjoy the hot, sunny days. A beautiful white acacia tree provides shade for those who like to keep cool.

There is gas central heating and a log burner available during the colder months to ensure you remain cosy whatever the season.

The property is in an ideal location. A 300 metre walk will take you into the attractive village square with its Michelin star restaurant, Le Vieux Logis, Bistro d’en Face, café/wine bar and pizzeria. In the same vicinity there is a bakery.

Another short walk will take you to Le Bassin Nautique where, during the summer months, there is the opportunity to learn to waterski or hire a canoe. A gentle paddle down the river will bring you to the beautiful village of Limeuil where the Dordogne and Vezere rivers meet. A pick up service will take you back to Tremolat if you don’t fancy the paddle back.

The Dordogne is open for fisherman and daily and weekly licences can be purchased at the shop in the village.

During the summer months many villages have a ‘ Marche Gourmand’ where visitors and locals are encouraged to join together for an outdoor feast. Tables and chairs are provided and a wide range of culinary specialities are offered for sale. The evening’s entertainment is usually concluded with singing and/or dancing. There are three of these in the square in Tremolat each year.

For those who wish to explore the area by car a few minutes’ drive will take you to the famous Cingle de Tremolat which offers breathtaking views over the meanders in the river. A few minutes further on again and you can stop for lunch or dinner at the Auberge de Belvedere which offers a fabulous all-inclusive duck menu and also some of the best views in the area.

The small towns or Lalinde and Le Bugue are just a 20 minute drive away and offer even more restaurants, supermarkets and shops as well as a market one day a week selling local specialities.

If history interests you then the world famous, ‘prehistoric capital of the world at Les Eyzie’ is just 30 minutes away. The area is also known to have over 100 chateaux and there are a number within a short drive, for example, Biron, Castelnaud and Beynac.

For the wine connoisseur a 40 minute drive to Bergerac will take you into the wine region where many of the local Vineyards offer tastings.

Tremolat train station offers an opportunity for the traveller to sit back and just enjoy the scenery. There is a regular train service to the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat which is just a 40 minute train ride away. Alternatively, a longer journey of two hours will take you into the elegant city of Bordeaux, voted in 2015 as European best destination.

The Spring and Autumn are particularly attractive seasons to visit for those who prefer a more tranquil holiday. The landscape is alive with vibrant colours, the days are generally warm and sunny but the roads are beautifully quiet for driving or cycling. The area is a paradise for the keen rambler, with a host of well signposted scenic walks.

Whether you are a Rambler, Fisherman, Cyclist, Historian, Wine Connoisseur, ‘foodie’ or Sun worshipper, this part of France has something for you.

Why Kim and Alwyne Jolly chose Perigord Noir

We started to visit the area in 2011 and when we eventually decided to buy a property we spent a long time researching the area to pinpoint one perfect spot. We believe Tremolat is that location with its proximity to so many local tourist spots and the fantastic facilities in the village. We bought the house in 2014 having only seen the area in the Spring and Autumn. We had seen enough of the area by this time to realise that the area was beautiful whatever the season. The summer brought even more delights. Beautiful, hot, summer days, long, balmy evenings, and a greater vibrancy to the area.

One of the great benefits of the properties are that they are within walking distance of amenities. Many of the French villages are extremely quiet, without even a shop or bakery. Although to many people visiting from the UK this is a bonus we wanted the French charm with a little more activity. Tremolat is fortunate to have not only a Michelin star restaurant but also a very highly regarded Bistro and Pizzeria and a recently opened wine/tapas bar. It is great after a long day sightseeing, relaxing by the pool, walking or cycling to realise that you can have pre-dinner drinks on the terrace and still not have to worry about your bottle of Bordeaux with dinner because you are not driving anywhere!

The stunning natural scenery and wealth of towns and villages in the area ensures that there is always somewhere to go and something to see.

What makes this apartment unique

A twin bedroomed property that offers accommodation for a smaller party and therefore offered at a price that can be more attractive to couples or a small family. Access to the wider garden and pool area ensures that visitors have the benefits normally only enjoyed by a larger gite. The adjoining Studio accommodation (see Home and Away property number 1931069) is available should there be a party of six.

Comfortable accomdation in a peaceful village with the added benefit of a large garden and nice pool

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from two fantastic weeks in Tremolat ! The accommodation offered all we could have asked for. The two ensuite bedrooms made life very easy in the mornings! The kitchen whilst compact had all that we needed but with a large garden and great weather the bbq had much more use than the oven! The swimming pool provided hours of fun and essential for cooling off.

Good internet access and a large TV ticked the boxes with our daughter !

The location is fantastic for visiting Chateau's, gardens, pre historic sites and just great countryside so many places within less than an hours drive.

The village is totally French and offers two bakers within a few minutes walk ...the one slightly further away did get our vote! Several restaurants and you can walk to the river within 10/15minutes where you can hire canoes etc

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends , family or anyone else looking for a relaxing break in this part of France.

Perfect gite with swimming pool in great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful two week stay at this great gite in Tremolat. Perfect for the three of us (two adults, one ten yr old). Had all the kitchen facilties that were needed plus a bbq outside. Separate ensuites was a bonus.

The swimming pool was a massive selling point for us, plus couldn't believe the amount of garden we had use of too. Plus a table tennis table/dart board/table football in the garage too. Which was also a good place to store the bikes we brought with us.

Off road parking in front of the property and only a couple of minutes walk to several restaurants and boulangeries in the village centre mean it is really well located. Pizzeria was a favourite for us. Great food (including traditional local duck dishes) and efficient service.

Tremolat is a great area to be based for exploring the Dordogne. Travel west to Bergerac and east to Sarlat and all the beautiful scenery, caves and castles in between.

Emma and Max who managed the gite during our stay couldn't have been more helpful.

Kim and Alwyne have really made the gite a home from home even including freesat which meant we could keep up with BBC's coverage of the Rio Olympics!!

Thanks for a fabulous stay. Would highly recommend!

Gîte très confortable et accueil très chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Séjour fort agréable dans ce gîte bien entretenu pour 4 personnes. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié de disposer d'une salle de bain et wc pour chaque chambre.

Le jardin est fort agréable et la piscine à disposition. Quel plaisir d'avoir tout sur place : lits faits, draps changés au bout d'une semaine, produits pour les machines et condiments à disposition. Le plus remarquable est l'accueil que nous avons reçu et les attentions de nos accueillants.

La seule petite déception était de ne pas disposer des chaînes de télévision française ( nos hôtes sont anglais) !!! pas très grave...

Le fabuleux décor environnant a suffi à nous contenter les yeux
