About Caroline Brooker
We are a french-english couple who moved to the area in 2003 after living in south London. We always dreamt of bringing up our children in the country and Garreth wanted to renovate old buildings so we headed back to France and chose the Dordogne for its beauty, and work opportunities. We first renovated what is now our home near Monpazier , and in 2007 took on board the project of a derelict medieval house in Issigeac. It took longer than expected to get to this stage as we since have had 3 children.
Caroline Brooker purchased this House in 2007
Why Caroline Brooker chose Issigeac
We just happened to visit this house with a friend who was thinking of buying it but decided the work involved was just too much. Then Garreth set himself the challenge of renovating it, he did everything himself, with precious help from family and friends at difficult times ! We just love the village of Issigeac and were charmed by the property and the fact that it had outside space. We started renting it out for holidays in 2012 and we are delighted that guests enjoy it as much as us.
What makes this House unique
I would say that what makes our house special is that it is located in the heart village but still has an outside space with the courtyard where you can sit down for meals on long summer evenings.

A home away from home
We were starstruck at being able to stay in this ancient village and in a restored house in a tiny street, crooked beams, stone floors, beautifully decorated and equipped. And the church was right around the corner and we could hear the bells ring (not through the night - they give folks a break!). Happiness.
Caroline was super easy to communicate with, responsive. Nothing to complain about at all.
The oly reason I gave a 4 star to location is that if you are planning on visiting the northern Dordogne (caves etc) the drives are long on smallish road - 1.5 hours. So if you have several days outings planned in the farther reaches, bear that it mind. We had enough down days that we were fine.
Don't miss Bergerac and Monbazzillac - easy to reach visits.
Thank you, Caroline!
Homely gite in perfect location!
Magical home-from-home set within a wonderful medieval village.
Extensive range of amenities provided. Clean and cosy accommodation, just a minute from the village centre. Excellent communication with the owner is a real bonus! Welcome package upon arrival is a thoughtful touch. Look forward to our return visit next year!
A lovely home for a holiday in Issigeac
Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is available at Caroline's delightful house in Issigeac. It is very comfortable, well designed and equipped. Being in a quiet lane near to shops, bars and restaurants plus ease of parking, added to the enjoyment of our holiday. Caroline was delightful to communicate with in all respects. We had a super time.
Spacious town house with lots of character
Very clean and all the facilities you need. Caroline was extremely helpful and communicative.This is fantastic house and Issigeac is a great town to stay for a holiday. We used it as a base to explore the surrounding area. I highly recommend this property.
A fabulous property in a beautiful village
This being our first visit to the Dordogne we did not know what to expect and we were not disappointed! A short drive from Bergerac airport the village of Issigeac did not disappoint. The medieval buildings, Sunday market and friendly locals made this the perfect start to our holiday. Anything you read about this picturesque area does not prepare you for its history and wonderful countryside -absolutely beautiful.
13 rue de la Paix is an amazing house full of French charm, very comfortable and has a charming courtyard. The property is well equipped and was spotlessly clean. Caroline had kindly left us coffee, milk and jam ( a coffee was so welcome after our journey from Chester). We felt at home the minute we walked into the front room. Just a short walk from a small but very accommodating bar and a bakery selling delicious bread and cakes. What more did we need on our first night!!
Thank you so much Brooker family for sharing your perfect piece of France with us x
Charming french authentic Medieval village, located just 15 minutes away from Bergerac city and airport! Issigeac is a large medieval village oozing charm and character, that feels untouched by time. It would be instantly recognisable to a time travelling resident from 600 years ago! Our beautiful French house, restored in keeping with the strict local conservation requirements, is surrounded by other stunning half-timbered houses in the tranquil centre of the villlage.
Issigeac benefits from some truly excellent restaurants, some of the best in the area, with options to suit all budgets and tastes, from confit de canard to pizza! Tempting boulangeries and patisseries, chabby chic furniture and gift shops sit alongside cosy bars and tea rooms, spilling out onto the pavements in the warm sun. The sunday morning market is viewed by locals and holidaymakers alike as perhaps the most atmospheric and vibrant in the region.
A few minutes stroll brings you outside the village and into glorious rolling countryside, perfect for walking, cycling, riding, birdwatching, and, of course, finding that perfect little vineyard for wine tasting!
Close to the vineyards of Pécharmant, Monbazillac and Bergerac, our house is also an ideal starting point for wine tasting, and days out exploring the outstanding medieval castles, villages and prehistorical heritage available in the Dordogne.
