Les gites de La Ferme de La Tour is a beautifully situated, ensemble of honey coloured stone buildings dating back to the 16th century, close to Sarlat and in the heart of Perigord Noir, Dordogne. We offer La Ferme, a lovingly restored, and immaculately presented farmhouse situated at La Ferme de La Tour which is a ten minute drive from the centre of Sarlat.
La Ferme is a three bedroom, two bathroom farmhouse full of beams and exposed stone walls.
The farmhouse ( with great WIFI reception throughout ) was built in the 17th century and was constructed with stone sourced from the neighbouring chateau when it was partly demolished for tax reasons.
Every room has heavily beamed ceilings and elements of exposed stone.
