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.

Fantastic property and pool in great surroundings. Perfect for young children and adults alike!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 10 night stay in Villars. Hosts Phil and Maria were so helpful and friendly, full of local tips and advice. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped. The pool is superb and there is plenty of garden space for the children to let off steam.

It's a beautiful area to explore with lots of lovely local towns. Brantome was our favourite. The Boulangerie/patisserie in Cherval is not to be missed.

We want to go back now!!!!

Wonderfully relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at this gîte in the heart of the beautiful French countryside. Far bigger than the pictures portray, well equipped and spotlessly clean - what more could you want? Less than an hour's drive from the picturesque Aubeterre, Bergerac, Périgueux and Brantôme, the gîte was a perfect base from which to explore the region in the day and then return for an evening in the French sunshine on the terrace. Hosts, Phil and Maria, were very welcoming and always seemed more than happy to share their tips on how to make the most out of our stay - thank you again! We would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a relaxing break away.

With regards to finding the gîte in the quiet hamlet of Villars, we found when entering Gout-Rossignol as the town and 'Villard' as the street, our TomTom took us straight there. Just a tip in case other's satnavs work the same!

Wonderfully relaxing, just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a week at this wonderfully comfortable, well equipped and extremely clean gite. The owners Phil & Maria were amazing, full of local knowledge and always available if we needed them. We also loved having private use of the pool, our 8 year old daughter was in there at every opportunity! Thank you for a wonderful holiday Phil & Maria we hope to see you again, Beth, Scott & Lily.

Beautiful house, beautiful location and lovely people

  • 5 of 5

There was 4 adults that shared this delightful Gite with swimming pool.

Phil and Maria were great on telling us places of interest to visit, yet they gave us all the privacy we needed.

You definitely need a car to visit great places.

We walked to the nearest pub, took us around 50 mins and a little longer on the way back!!

Would highly recommend this Gite, great to unwind and the pool is great to have fun in at any age.

Beautiful Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The House, the pool, the gardens were perfect. We felt chilled and relaxed as soon as we arrived. Phil and Maria, the owners are friendly and helpful, giving us lots of tips about places to visit and eat.

The house is immaculate and larger than we imagined from the photos.

This is a lovely base from which to visit and explore the local medieval towns and sites, and enjoy long leisurely lunches. We returned every day to sit around the pool and take in the sunny afternoon and evenings in piece and quiet.

It was just about a perfect holiday.
