About the property

Beautiful & Secluded 5 Bedroom Farmhouse with Large 17m X 6m Private Pool

Enjoy full and exclusive use of this stunning restored stone farmhouse, fully equipped for that perfect family French holiday.

Situated in a small and peaceful country hamlet that sits between two bustling riverside market towns and located to the north of Bergerac and west of Périgueux, the ancient and beautiful capital city of the famous and much loved Dordogne-Perigord area.

The traditionally restored property offers large, fully enclosed and private grounds as well as spacious living quarters with its five bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms. The private pool, which is one of the largest private swimming pools in the Dordogne, has lovely views across the surrounding countryside and woodland.

Property just fantastic to look at- picturesque and rustic and modern all together.

Property size superb- we were party of 7 including an 85 y.o mother-in-law (!), two 17 years old Yadults, and two couples. We all had both our own space and more than enough to entertain all of us for meals or games. All accessible to the different levels of ability. Immediate grounds beautiful and cornfields at rear a lovely view each morning and evening. No light pollution so night skies splendid- saw 5 (!) shooting stars in one sitting!

Property & fixtures and fittings standard is exceptional....facilities (not that I had intention of doing any washing but...) included everything to make a long stay fully do-able.And a shorter stay (6 days in our case) just so easy - dishwasher etc. Fridge size very accommodating.

Pool area superb and nice temperature to cool off in 38 degrees heat we had in late August.

Local area provided excellent supermarket, fabulous markets and good vet to satisfy current Pet Passport requirements if taking dog along.

We did and labrador Stanley loved property too- gardens big enough and secure enough for him to wander in and find shade.

Local towns - Periguex, Brantome & Aubeterre sur Drone (fresh water beach !)- all worth visiting.

A lovely spacious property with a perfect mixture of traditional and modern.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Guibaudie as a party of 4 adults and 5 children aged 9 to 16 and the family dog. We had plenty of space in the house and the owners were very helpful in adding beds where we wanted them. The house itself is beautiful and the new kitchen is a fantastic focal point. The house was clean and extremely well equipped with great attention to detail. The gardens were extensive and very well kept as well as being fully enclosed so we had no worries about the dog! The pool is huge and kept beautifully. We made great use of the pool house with its shower, fridge and plenty of plastic glasses for refreshments. The house is well appointed in peaceful, secluded surroundings but still close to supermarkets and towns . We had a choice of several outside eating areas for all our alfresco lunches and evening bbqs. The owners, agents and maintenence staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We had thoroughly relaxing holiday and have already recommended Guibaudie to friends!

The property is set in the heart of the Perigord area of the Dordogne, itself part of Aquitaine, which was at one time ceded to England as part of history’s convoluted Anglo-French relations. The area is famous for truffles, foie gras, wine, walnuts, forests and chateaux.

There are many local activities. These are not limited to the options listed opposite:

• Scenic drives

• Walking/hiking

• Wine tasting – visit/tours – Bergerac/ Bordeaux (St Emilion)

• Water sports: canoeing – kayaking

• Cycling (bicycle hire)

• Fishing

• Golf

• Mountain biking

• Swimming – freshwater & day trips to coastal beaches

• Tennis

• Horse riding / equestrian events

• Eating out! Restaurant visits

• Antique collecting

• Astronomy – being in the countryside, the night skies suffer very low light pollution, so there are great views of the planets, stars, and other astronomical events.

The property is centrally located for trips into the Dordogne and Vezere valleys this area is liberally sprinkled with chateaux, fortified towns etc. There are local pre-historical attractions; mentioning 2 – the town of Montignac is 40 minutes away and is the site of the Lascaux caves, discovered in the 1930’s and containing original cave paintings. Les Eyzies hosts troglodyte villages.
