About Philip Hadfield

It was a lifelong dream of ours to retire to France and we are certainly living the dream. We have been renovating the attached barn which we currently live in and making lots of improvements to the Gite and grounds. We enjoy meeting our guests who have come from lots of different places.

Philip Hadfield purchased this house in 2015

Why Philip Hadfield chose Perigord Vert

We think our property has it all. A haven from the busy lives we lead. The property is typically French, but with all the modern facilities you need. Our guests have provided wonderful reviews and that the reward we want to receive.

What makes this house unique

Although in a rural setting it is close to a number of towns with shops, banks,, markets etc. We are also close to the Perigord National Park. Although based in Dordogne, we are close to the borders of Charente and Limosin and all they have to offer

Starry nights are magnificent in this vicinity and on a clear night you can see many constellations and even satellities.

Wonderful peace and quiet in stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a blissful week in this wonderful house. The setting is amazing - complete peace and quiet is guaranteed. The house itself was spacious and wonderfully finished with two good sized bedrooms, a huge main living room, surperbly equipped country kitchen, two bathrooms and a fabulous swimming pool area. Phil and Maria couldn't do enough for us and were so friendly and generous with their time. They did so much to make it a memorable trip. The property is in a tiny hamlet in stunning French countryside. You can lounge round the pool all day and have BBQs at night as the sun sets across the fields. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anybody.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just spent a wonderful week at this beautiful property. It was spacious, modern and very comfortable. Philip and Maria were kind and friendly and couldn't do enough to help but without being overbearing. We took our 3 month old daughter with us and they were able to supply lots of convenient items like a travel cot and baby bath.

The property is situated in a quiet hamlet and the peace and quiet was just what we needed. It is however within very close proximity to larger villages and a convenient supermarket.

Finally, the stars at night should not be missed - spectacular!

I would definitely recommend this property.

A comfortable, spacious and high quality gite with a great pool and in a very peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Contact with Phil & Maria before our arrival was great. They were so friendly and helpful with directions, etc., that we felt very at ease we had chosen well. Helen met us on arrival and was very welcoming, telling us all we needed to know. The gite exceeded our expectations and our girls' (ages 9 & 14) eyes lit up when they saw the swimming pool. The accommodation was very well equipt with what looked like new appliances, good quality furniture and everything was clean. The beds were comfortable and fans in each bedroom were very welcome on hot nights. The pool was lovely and clean and an ideal depth for our youngest daughter who isn't yet a confident swimmer. We spent a lot of time enjoying the pool and lounging under the poolside veranda, shading from the hot sunny weather. Highly recommended.

A Peace Of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful cottage really is the perfect choice for a relaxing and peaceful week in the Dordogne. Phil and Maria were welcoming hosts with great tips for the local area. The tranquil setting, pristine pool and well equipped house will allow you to kick back and enjoy the best of the area. Local villages and near by town of Périgueux are wonderful to explore and offer fabulous food , shops and activities. Wish we were still there.
