About the property

2 bedroom barn with beams and exposed stone, heated pool, views and gardens.

La Grange is a sunny and airy barn conversion, full of original features, equipped to a high standard, and is immaculately presented and sleeps 2 to 4 people in comfort with lounge, kitchen-diner, two bedrooms and a shower room.

La Grange is one of five, lovingly restored, and immaculately presented accommodations situated at La Ferme de La Tour which is a ten minute drive from the centre of Sarlat.

The living area is sunny and airy and has sumptuous furnishings, in a beautiful room with high beamed ceilings, exposed honey coloured stonework and a wood burner. Fully glazed double French doors provide you with lovely valley views and lead out onto your own south facing terrace equipped with patio furniture, barbecue and more spectacular views.

There is free WFI with a booster to ensure a strong signal.

The kitchen-diner, which is on a split level to the living area, is fully equipped with washing machine, gas oven and hob, extractor fan, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, toaster and all the accessories you are likely to need to make your stay comfortable. There is seating for four people, fully glazed entrance door, exposed stonework and a beamed ceiling. Wooden stairs give access to the first floor landing.

Bedroom one has a romantic feel to it with a double bed, beautiful exposed timbers in a vaulted ceiling, polished chestnut floors and a dormer window from which you can see for miles.

The shower room has a wash basin against a glass feature wall, toilet and a shower enclosure.

La Grange has heating throughout, Sky TV with a large selection of English speaking channels, CD and DVD players and a library of DVD films are available on request. There is also a small library of books. A clothes airer, iron and ironing board are also included.

Outside you will find a barbecue, patio table and chairs and a large sun umbrella.

La Grange is suitable for families and couples 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.

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. 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.

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 good reception.

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.

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 with easy accessibility of all of the best touristic sites in Dordogne and Lot.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time staying at La Grange with our family - the property is beautiful and the views are truly memorable. The huge yard was a child's dream - our 8 year old could have spent the entire week just playing in the pool, trampoline, swing, table tennis. But we did get out to enjoy the castles, walks around the farms and hills around La Grange were wonderful, and canoeing on the Dordogne river. Chris and Kate were fabulous hosts. Highly recommend for a great vacation getaway!

My Response

Thank you Rachel and Isaak for your review, it's good to know that you enjoyed your week.. It was lovely to meet you both and to see Raya enjoying her time in the garden and the pool, spending her energy before commencing the next leg of your trip ( we are very envious )

A wonderful time at Le Ferme de la Tour

  • 5 of 5

We have been at this beautiful spot for a week and were surprise by a nice and proper Gite with full equipment and thick Walls to hold the summer heat on distance. The look from the little terrace over the absolut clean swimmingpool and the landscape of the Dordogne was breathtaking. Chris the owner was very often present and open for all questions. It was one of the Best Gites we had in Trance, so that it is only consequent to highly recommand this accomodation. We already decided to come back next year.

Lovely Gite in peaceful rural location.

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this lovely spot. Accommodation was clean & well maintained. The pool was very welcome, with great views over the countryside and a great spot to relax after a day sightseeing. Chris was very helpful and always available for advice on restaurants and places to visit. Although in a rural location not far from Sarlat & the lovely surrounding villages.

Idyllic position for us away from the bustle of to

  • 5 of 5

A light, clean gite away from the hussle and bussle of town noise with a spectacular view overlooking the countryside. We were here for 2 weeks of amazing spring weather with temperatures generally in the high 20s. We went kayaking on the Dordogne which was probably the highlight of our stay. We also cycled which was beautiful using two companies, Bike Bus and LibertyCycles both of whom were excellent. The folder in the villa is full of information which was priceless for us and we did numerous scenic drives and walks using that information. Chris was fabulous, calling in nearly every day to make sure everything was OK and providing ideas and information on local attractions. We would thoroughly recommend this stay to couples and families seeking a bit of peace and quiet with the benefit of not being far away from the attractions. Thank you Chris for helping to make this a memorable holliday and sorry about leaving the back door unlocked when we left!

What’s to say that hasn't already been said. If it’s not the beautiful countryside or the warm inviting pool, the lovely accommodation or the surrounding peace, then it’s the wonderful hosts that you have come for. Chris and Kate couldn't have been more accommodating and made our holiday in every way perfect. The children enjoyed the pool every day which was warm, clean and safe and especially enjoyed the late night swims that Chris kindly organised. I’m writing this 5 months after our return and the thought of being there still puts a smile on my face. We left with heavy hearts, but sure that we would return one day. I always enjoy a holiday where you can relax from day one which is easily achieved at Ferme La Tour. If you are thinking about booking, I can save you some time and deliberation…..just do it, you’ll be very pleased you did.

Friendly family fun in France

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation. Clean and very well equipped. Beautiful views. Great walks from the front door throughout the local area. Excellent location for getting about. Chris was a font of information regarding things to do. One recommendation to definitely do is to go to Belves night market (Take plates, cutlery and glasses). We were a group booking and took 3 accommodations. The pool was clean and didn’t seem overcrowded when the other guests joined us. I would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Amanda for your review. We are glad that you all chose La Ferme de La Tour for your group stay and it was great to see you all together and having such a good time. I have to say for me the highlight of your stay was the regular supply of beer that Paul would bring me whilst I was mowing the lawns on a hot August day. I now relay the story to all our guests and it's amazing how the refreshments keep flowing.. Thank you...Chris and Kate.
