Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Trémolat - Les Cireys

Beautiful Perigourdine gite to sleep two in Tremolat by the Dordogne river

Les Cireys: Les Cireys is a traditional Perigourdine house, held by many to be the oldest house in the village.

It is situated in a superb location overlooking the Dordogne valley, yet only five minutes easy stroll from the heart of the village and all its amenities.

The gite comprises the entire, completely self contained ground floor and gardens of the property to enjoy.

The garden: You have the exclusive use of the ground floor gardens.

The garden has cherry, apple, plum peach and fig trees in it and has sunshine from early morning to sunset ( watch the sun go down with a glass of your favourite tipple ) .

Charming Cottage in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We were the first American couple to rent this lovely place. We wondered if we should keep this gem to ourselves, but it's only fair to tell the rest of the USA (and the world) that this cottage in Tremolat is impossible to beat.

We were pleasantly surprised at the care and detail of the decor. Both outside and inside, attention to detail created a cozy, "at home" feeling.

The owners greeted us warmly and the two times we visited with them, we felt almost like part of the family! The set up is perfect- we had total privacy (would have never even known they are there), but we could go up the steps to their home to ask questions or visit. They always welcomed us inside and gave great tips about sight-seeing and restaurants. One of the most pleasant aspects of our week in France was meeting such lovely people.

Tremolat itself is a quiet, beautiful village and a perfect home base to return to each night after visiting the surrounding areas. We went all over the region! Wineries in Bergerac, amazing view in Domme, Chateau de Beynac, canoeing the river between Cenac and Beynac, Font de Gaume caves, shopping in Sarlat, the gardens of Marqueyssac, Abbey at Cadouin, and much more! There is plenty to see and do, but this is also a great place for relaxing and resting if desired.

And the food, my heavens the food! We ate like kings at every meal. Tremolat itself has a Michelin starred restaurant Le Vieux Logis that is a gourmand's dream come true. Also in Tremolat is Les Truffieries- one of our best meals. Nearby in Limeuil, try Garden Party.

This was our dream vacation and everything fulfilled our expectations perfectly. We are so pleased with this house rental, the town of Tremolat, and the entire Dordogne region.

A cosy gîte in the stunning Dordogne area

  • 5 of 5

The picture-perfect village of Trémolat is the perfect base from which to explore the lovely Dordogne area, with its glorious castles, walks, markets, medieval villages (bastides) and caves. This pretty gîte – Les Cireys – sits just outside Trémolat (a 5 minute walk if you're going slowly) and has a lovely, peaceful feel to it. The decor is very "French rustic-chic" but is still very comfortable and cosy.

We didn't have the best weather during our week-long stay, but it didn't stop us getting out and about and enjoying the area. The tourist office in Trémolat has a good booklet full of beautiful, themed walks (eg pigeonniers, bastides, riverside etc) – highly recommended.

For an affordable, charming place to stay in this beautiful area you can't go wrong with Les Cireys. The owners, Geoff and Lindsay, provide lots of information, too – including some good restaurant recommendations. Thanks very much to them!

Having read all previous reviews, my wife and I concur with the favourable comments.

We found Geoff and Lyndsey very personable and at the same time professional. We would like to add Joe and Abi to the above.remarks.

Geoff is retired from the fire service, he certainly put himself out for us!

Ideal Week In Tremolat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Les Cireys in Tremolat was everything we had hoped for and more than promised by our hosts Lindsay and Geoff Warlow. We found the small village of Tremolat a perfect base for our daily excursions throughout the region. And should you prefer just relaxing in comfort, the photos in this listing tell a very accurate story.

Les Cireys is very comfortably and tastefully decorated. Privacy is no problem as the garden pictured in the photo of the exterior is for the exclusive use of renters. The Warlows are very warm and friendly and are always available with advice, should you ask.

Tremolat is situated within easy driving distance of some of the prettiest towns and villages in France and has four dining options from pizza to a Michelin starred restaurant. All but one of these are within very easy walking distance.

Overall we found Les Cireys offered excellent value and are happy to recommend it to anyone with similar tastes and interests.

Thanks Lindsay and Geoff!

We returned from Dordogne a week ago and are missing it terribly. This is a particularly magical holiday rental owned by Geoff and Lindsay – the finest of hosts. It’s situated in Tremolat, which isn’t marred by the tourist trail but is perfect both in its ‘Frenchness’, its architectural beauty and location.

On our arrival Geoff and Lindsay talked us through the area and recommended all sorts of things to do and see. There’s a warmth to them that’s very rare and after the briefest of chats I felt like we were friends. And yet they were tactfully absent for the rest of the holiday except when we needed them. Brilliant! I should add that we left some washing on the line mid-holiday whereupon it rained (naturally). When we go back we found that their son had bought our washing in for us (thanks Joe!)

The apartment itself looks like something from Elle Deco – elegant, tasteful and yet cosy and charming. With a private garden, globe-lit swinging chair, deckchairs for lazy days, etc, etc. I can’t recommend it enough.

And then there’s Dordogne. It’s paradise. We canoed down the Dordogne river, ate in local restaurants and meandered around gorgeous medieval villages. It was the prefect antidote to life in London.

A thoroughly recommended holiday rental!

Return to Les Cireys

  • 5 of 5

After our first magical visit to Tremolat and Les Cireys, we have longed to return and at last we did last month.

Possibly more beautiful than before, we drove through the village and up the remembered lanes to our gite and were welcomed by Geoff and Lindsay.

The following days were filled with peace and serenity, rediscovering this area of such beauty, doing absolutely nothing in the delightful accommodation, filled with light, soft sofas, many books. A little kitchen (mind your head on the beam), a dining area and upstairs - a hideway bedroom looking out over the countryside.

Nothing is every too much for Geoff and Lindsay, warm and humourus people - they feel like old friends.

If you want to drop out of a busy world - this is the place for you

In a tranquil location on the banks of the Dordogne, Tremolat offers excellent dining, walking, canoeing,and sightseeing .

The village boasts a Michelin starred restaurant as well as a pizzeria and the delightful Bistro d' en face, dining experiences, for all pockets and tastes.

In the area, beautiful drives down the Dordogne and Vezere valleys reveal Chateaux, medieval villages ,and world famous caves and caverns such as Lascaux at almost every turn.

Foie gras and truffles are available to buy and savour from delightful local markets.

Hot air ballooning over the Dordogne is a magical experience, or if wine is your raison d'etre, the world famous wine route around Bergerac offers a chance to taste and buy from many Chateaux.

Of course, after all this activity, it may well be that all you really want to do is to relax on a hot lazy summers day in your private garden, followed by al fresco dining and a relaxing and refreshing nights sleep, to prepare you for your next adventure

Other Activities: canoeing
