Overview

About the property

Superb location, lovingly restored farm providing the perfect holiday getaway.

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. With a southerly aspect the house is sunny, light and airy and has the most beautiful covered balcony with table, chairs and twinkly lights. Down the stone steps from the balcony is the large terrace area with views to die for, stretching over the pool and large gardens to the Dordogne valley and beyond. In fact the furthest point we have identified on the skyline is 37 kms away.

The lounge is full of character with a huge fireplace and wood burner. There are are wooden floors, deep comfortable sofas and a flat screen TV with a large selection of English and French channels available. There is also a computer desk/work station.

The vast kitchen / diner is fully equipped with everything you may need including a dish washer, washing machine, fridge, freezer, microwave, oven, hob, etc etc and plenty of worktop area.

Bedroom one , which has an en-suite, has dual aspect windows allowing plenty of light to flow through the room. There is a large bed, beamed ceilings and exposed stone window reveals.

Bedroom two, which is a double aspect room, has twin single beds a beamed ceiling, wooden floor, an exposed stone window surround and wooden floors.

Bedroom three which is equal in size to bedroom two also has a dual aspect and a single bed, beamed ceilings wooden floor and exposed stone window reveal.

La Ferme de La Tour once served as the farm, belonging to the neighbouring historical chateau. Surrounded by magnificent countryside, and a network of pretty footpaths, it has been lovingly restored to provide spacious, high quality, self catering, holiday cottages ( gites ) and a large chlorine free swimming pool shared between the accomodation.

The large chlorine free pool is heated by the means of solar power and is perfectly sited to maximise the sunshine and views across the garden and valley.. The garden is 10,000m2 with plenty of hidden corners, shady trees, and room to run around.

Situated in the heart of Perigord Noir, we are in the most scenic region of the Dordogne, in an area known locally as the golden triangle. The location is ideal for the perfect self catering holiday with all of the most beautiful sites and scenery of the Dordogne and Lot on our doorstep.

We are close to Sarlat (10kms) yet situated in a rural position with surrounding grounds of woodland and meadow. The breathtaking views over the Dordogne valley will overwhelm you with a feeling of peace and tranquillity. Within the hamlet of La Tour, we are just two minutes from the pretty village of Sainte Nathalene with a bar, hotel, depot pain ( bakery outlet ), restaurants and a small shop.

The historical town of Sarlat-la-Caneda, with more listed buildings than any other town in Europe, is just seven miles away. Sarlat has an all year round twice weekly market and a wonderful choice of restaurants, cafes and bars. An array of street entertainment and a full calendar of events makes Sarlat a visit you should not miss when in the Dordogne. There are also numerous chateaux to visit, caves to explore and pretty market towns to meander through.

The area also offers a wide range of outdoor activities for all ages.. These include walking, canoeing down the Dordogne river (an absolute must), golfing, inland swimming lakes and beaches, tennis, air parks, cycling, mountain biking, quad biking, para gliding, water parks, paint ball, karting, horse riding, hot air ballooning, wine tasting trips, etc etc.

Our self catering gite accommodation is available to let / rent all year round for holiday's in and out of season. All our houses / villas have full WIFI with great reception.

We welcome couples and families alike. Due to the stairs and the terrain we do not feel we can cater for children under five years of age, the elderly or the infirm. We do not accept pets.

About Kate and Chris

We are a family of four who moved to Sarlat in 2004 in search of a new life and new challenges. Well we certainly found both ... A new life and a lot of challenges.. we have enough funny stories and experiences to fill a book and now have a great lifestyle and a business in which we take great pride and enjoy sharing it with others.

Kate and Chris purchased this house in 2004

Why Kate and Chris chose Sarlat-la-Canéda

We moved lock stock and barrel to the Sarlat area in 2004, buying a set of empty farm buildings that needed far too much work. But the position and the views had us hooked and nothing came anywhere near a close second. So here we are, several years have past and the renovation and transformation completed, but not without some real highs and lows and a vast collection of stories and experiences.

What makes this house unique

The position is magical and just not possible to capture in a picture.

We have been extremely lucky to find a property with such a formula of character, views and location. We are close to Sarlat, which is the jewel of the Dordogne, yet in a truly rural setting in stunning countryside.

Notes:
Large chlorine free pool Gently swimming through sparkling turquoise water on a warm summer’s day whilst gazing over the multi coloured valley and skies of the Dordogne valley is an ideal way to relax. The pool with surrounding terrace, sun loungers and garden furniture, is a sun worshippers paradise, perfectly sited to take in both the view and sunshine from dawn until dusk. For those that are learning to swim there is a large area which is just 900mm deep at one end of the pool before gently sloping down to 1.8 mtrs. The pool, terrace and a large grassed area are all fenced to give added security. The pool is heated via a solar heating system so is dependant on sunshine. Generally the pool is heated from the beginning of June to the end of September.

Lovely and homely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculate and very tasteful inside with plenty of space - a lovely old world feel. It is set in beautiful grounds great for children to play. Large pool with space for all to swim or sunbathe. Nice terrace with barbecue. Despite relatively poor weather, we eat outside.

A great and stunning location , ten minutes to Sarlat. Lots of fun things to do for the whole family. Only slight negative is you have to travel for shops and restaurants. We will be going again. Probably our best holiday.

wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked La Ferme we were confident we had made the right choice with clear and concise communication and all our questions and queries answered in full. La Ferme is a great base to explore the region with Sarlat being the highlight. The accomodation was spotless and superbly equipped and had everything we needed and more. The garden and pool are really well maintained and so pretty. Well done Chris and Kate you truly have found a little piece of paradise.and we wish you a great summer.. thank you for all your help.

Notre séjour était absolument merveilleux ! Quelle belle région !

  • 5 of 5

La propriété est typique de la région dans un endroit calme, exactement ce qu'on voulait. La maison était telle qu'on l'imaginait et on s'est tout de suite senti chez nous. Que dire de la vue à part que c'était époustouflant.

Les propriétaires, Kate et Chris, ont tout fait pour nous faire plaisir. Tout d'abord leur accueil était très chaleureux et la maison avait tout le nécessaire et était très propre. De plus pendant notre séjour ils ont été très attentionnés à notre égard. Merci infiniment à eux pour leur gentillesse. Nous reviendrons chez eux, c'est sûr!!
