Overview

About the property

Exceptional location with private garden and Jacuzzi, 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms.

MAISON BOYER

Last two July and August weeks available. 7 to 14 July and 28 July to 4 August.

A historic house in the heart of Domme with garden and jacuzzi. The spa is cool in summer and warm in winter, just as you please.

This beautiful property is renovated to a very high standard. Quality fittings and tasteful decoration. 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It offers comfortable accommodation for up to 6 guests. This unique property is situated in the famous Place de la Rode. A peaceful and quiet private garden. Shops and restaurants within a few metres. Maison Boyer was the home of a noted writer and "compagnon", Abel Boyer. The recent renovation has managed to combine modern facilities with original features such as the thick stone walls and fireplaces, exposed beams, wooden floors, and shutters.

La Maison Boyer also has the added advantage of having a ground floor bedroom and shower room, extremely rare in this stunning bastide village.

Throughout, the house has a mixture of modern and antique furniture from around Europe.

INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:

Ground Floor

The original studded front door opens directly into:

The spacious and luxurious lounge with two sofas (one which converts to a king size bed to accommodate two extra guests); a wood burner stove offering extra warmth for cooler low season evenings (free wood); a flat screen TV with English, French and International channels; DVD player; bookcases with a large selection of books, and various lamps and Persian carpets for atmosphere.

A French window leads onto the rear terraced garden with its jacuzzi spa.

A door leads through into the large dining kitchen, with its period tiled floor. The new kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, electric oven and induction hob, dishwasher, coffee machine, kettle, microwave oven and toaster. A solid wooden dining table and 6 chairs provide comfortable interior dining. This delightful room benefits from the open aspect provided by wide French windows opening onto the terrace.

From the kitchen a door leads to a lobby which in turn gives access to:

A ground floor double bedroom, with glass doors opening onto the Place de la Rode. The bedroom offers two single beds that convert to a king size bed, to suit guest preference. There are bedside tables with lamps, a Moroccan rug, a wardrobe and chest of drawers. There are folding chairs and a table for sitting out in the square to bask in the evening sun.

An adjacent shower room, with a walk in shower, wc, heated towel rail and vanity unit. This doubles as an ensuite facility for the bedroom and for daytime general use. The ground floor layout is suitable for those with restricted mobility.

First Floor.

From the lounge a wooden staircase leads to the first floor, where you will find:

The spacious master bedroom, with traditional stone fireplace, exposed beams, and solid wooden furniture. The king size bed has a memory foam mattress. A door opens onto a long balcony which overlooks the rear garden and offers view over village rooftops to the Dordogne countryside. A table and chairs provides a great spot for morning coffee and croissants.

The master bedroom has en suite bathroom which is bright and airy with a free standing traditional bath, walk in shower, heated towel rail, vanity unit and wc.

General.

Internet wifi access throughout. Bed linen and towels are provided, and the beds are made ready for your arrival. Maison Boyer has an oil fired central heating system, which along with the wood burner in the lounge makes for an extremely comfortable house all year round. A separate ‘buanderie’ in the garden houses the boiler, a washing machine and a second fridge.

EXTERIOR DESCRIPTION:

The house benefits from an enclosed rear terrace and flower garden area, completely private due to its high position, despite being in the centre of the village. An all important jacuzzi offers an ideal spot for a cooling dip in the summer or a luxurious and warming experience in winter. A perfect way to relax after a day’s sight-seeing. A wooden table and chairs and a barbecue are ideal for al fresco meals. Sun loungers and a parasol.

SETTING AND LOCATION

Maison Boyer is situated in the Place de la Rode, in the heart of the beautiful bastide village of Domme. One of the classified Plus Beaux Villages de France, and recently voted the most beautiful village in the whole of France by the UK's Daily Telegraph, Domme offers a selection of excellent restaurants, all within easy walking distance of the house. Step out from the front door into the square for a coffee or a beer. Take your pick from the Bastide’s many cafes and restaurants – or shut the front door and enter a different world of relaxation and peace and quiet in the house or garden.

Located in the ‘Golden Triangle’ of the Perigord Noir, Domme is perched above the Dordogne river, and all the major tourist sights of the Dordogne such as Sarlat, La Roque Gageac, Castelnaud and Beynac, are within a 20 minute drive.

Bergerac or Brive airports are each just 1 hour’s drive, and the nearest motorway, the A20 at Souillac is just 30 minutes away. Bordeaux and Toulouse airports are approximately 2 hours.

About Roddy Thomson

We are both from Scotland, close to retirement age but with lots of adventurous spirit left. We have always loved France, the people, food, culture and of course the scenery. We have both found a quiet and less stressful life in rural France and love it!

Roddy Thomson purchased this house in 2016

Why Roddy Thomson chose Domme

We bought this beautiful house in 2016 after viewing upwards of 80 properties in the area. We chose it because of it's location, it is situated in the heart of the lovely Bastide village of Domme. We have lovingly restored it and filled it with antique and modern furniture and adding all the essentials of modern day life. For those who have limited mobility, there is a ground floor bedroom as well as direct access to the garden, kitchen/dining room and sitting room without stairs. Having so many lovely restaurants and cafes within a short walking distance means that ditching the four wheels for a while is really quite easy.

What makes this house unique

The location is exceptional. Domme was recently voted the " Most beautiful village in France" (Daily Telegraph, March 3rd 2017) and having this whole property with all the facilities at your personal disposal is wonderful for a relaxing holiday. The privacy of the peaceful garden with the Jacuzzi is unique in this village. It is great for cooling off in summer and warming up in winter. The interior is tastefully done and accentuates many of the beautiful features including the metre thick stone walls (keeps the house cool in summer) and the period tiled floor in the kitchen/dining room. There is space to sit at the front of the house in the evenings, have a glass of wine and watch the world go by. There are so many things to do if you want to be active, canoeing on the Dordogne river (1 km), cycling, balloon rides, walking, fishing and swimming from the many river beaches nearby. The world famous Lascaux caves are only 45 minutes away and there are many chateau to visit, markets to explore and restaurants and cafes to enjoy. It really is the perfect place to visit for all ages and abilities.

A beautiful house, wonderful location, everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We could not recommend this property highly enough. The house has all the character of an old property but all the benefits of modern living. It's location is wonderful, right in the centre of Domme but amazingly peaceful and tranquil.

The owner was there to meet us,which was very useful. The fridge was stocked with all the essentials to get us started plus a bottle of vin! !

The hot tub in the garden was the icing on the cake! The Auberge de Rode directly opposite the house does delicious food but eating in the garden of the house was equally pleasurable.

Tremendous range of birds, including a cuckoo were great to listen to.

Can't recommend highly enough.

Five star property, great hosts, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Maison Boyer is an excellent choice for a stay in Domme! We stayed there for five nights and loved this house. The beds are really comfortable, the house is charming, and has a great big fireplace and a hot tub. The hosts are the best! They brought us more firewood, ensured that there was plenty to eat and drink in the fridge (wine, beer, pastries, bread, eggs, cheese, ...) right before we got there, and did everything they could to help us during the stay! Roddy is really responsive and replied to all our questions before the trip. I can't thank them enough. There is a great restaurant "Auberge de la Rode" right across the street from the house. Domme was a great choice for local trips to the castles and caves, and we had a great vacation as the house was very centrally located - right in the town square. I highly recommend staying at Maison Boyer. Five stars!

Great location with owner largesse

  • 5 of 5

Expansive Domme house with private patio for al fresco relaxation. And the owner supplied a bottle of claret, cheese, eggs, bread, milk, orange juice, a tin of duck rillettes, and more in the fridge. Nice fireplace too. So if you want two bedrooms and two baths in Domme, don’t pass it up.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Domme is a wonderful village, little busy with tourists but it all flows and there are some fantastic places to eat. The property was beautifully presented and our hosts were both helpful and informative. Would thoroughly recommend the house and the area, they're both a little special and I'm sure every visitor will enjoy their experience.

Gemütlich - gut eingerichtet - zentral gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Frühlingswoche im Périgord und im Ferienhaus von Roddy Thomson haben wir sehr genossen. Domme ist idealer Ausgangsort für Ausflüge nach Sarlat, Bergerac, Perigeux und in die Flusslandschaft der Dordogne.

Das Ferienhaus im Herzen von Domme war uns immer wieder Rückzugs- und Erholungsort - sei es zur Lektüre im ruhigen Garten, zum Sprudelbad im Jacuzzi oder zum gemeinsamen Kochen in der ausserordentlich gut eingerichteten Wohnküche. Vielen Dank - es war sehr schön!

Roddy et sa femme sont des gens vraiment charmants et tres accueillants.

Leur maison est très confortable, très pratique.

nous y etions avec nos deux enfants et avons pleinement profité de l emplacement ideal, du charmant village de Domme et des alentours. Beaucoup de visites sont possibles a moins de 15 min de la maison.

et en fin de journee, nous profitions du jacuzzi et de la cheminee.

la maison est aussi bien equipee que decoree.

merci pour ce superbe séjour!
