Ideal location from which to explore all the sites in the Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

This was my 7th trip to France and my fourth to the Dordogne. On this trip I wanted to show my teenage kids some of the hikes I've enjoyed in the Dordogne. This was the perfect property for exploring the Dordogne. Places one can hike to right out the front door: Les Milandes, Castelnaud, Dome, Marquaisac, get the idea. The house is a 10 minute drive away from Sarlat. I highly recommend getting a copy of the IGN 2037OT hiking chart. The house is on the chart and the above hikes are readily apparent, the main trail traversing the area being the GR64. There's even an old secret trail you can find on the chart that comes into this property's back yard.

The house is comfortable, with AC and a big open plan downstairs. The pool was lovely after a long day of hiking. And don't be surprised if you get a visit from the neighbor's pea-cock. Be very careful driving in the front gate if your car isn't a compact. We, however, needed a big Volvo V90 which I managed to get in and out without incident. But a smaller car would have been easier.

The owner, Christophe, is gracious and patient and very helpful. He can correspond in French or English as you please. I hope to return!

Charming place in great countryside!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful restored barn in the heart of the countryside. Lots of villages to walk around. You can just enjoy the view or there are lots of activities. We spent a wonderful time in an air balloon over Beynac - so much fun. The pool at the house was too cold to swim in, but it was the middle of Sept - so fair enough! Would definitely use this house again - loved it!!

Fantastic holiday - just what we were looking for☀️

  • 5 of 5

The property is a tardis as it really is much bigger than you think from the outside. We were only 3 of us, so didn't require the third bedroom but even had we been 6, I don't think it would have felt crowded as there was a lovely open-plan feel to the property, with outside eating area, lovely garden and carport. There is effective air-con in the house and the pool was gorgeous and refreshing, which was really welcome during our hot and sunny week. The location of the property was on the top of a hill, accessed by a narrow and steep road. The owner was charming and helpful and our stay was delightful.
