Saint Crépin Carlucet, Dordogne

Bask in a beautiful farmhouse for 8 in the heart of Périgord Noir, Dordogne - views, garden, private pool... 12km from Sarlat-la-Canéda


4 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


The Périgord is as lush and welcoming as when prehistoric man made his home here and left us his stunning cave paintings. Settle into this generous 18th-century farm building and its pigeonnier, rebuilt from ruins and made into a family house, all curvy roof, golden stone, space and simplicity. The ground floor is one vast living room, with tawny floor, local stone walls and a wood-burning stove at its heart. Lounging on the big brown leather sofa, enjoy the dazzling view of the 11th-century church of Carlucet, strikingly floodlit at night. Up a couple of steps is the kitchen, arresting in its faultless white-floored simplicity and superbly equipped. Upstairs in three big rooms where beds are being fitted with the latest soft/firm mattresses, rugs jolly up the laminated flooring and the views over the village are spectacular. Bathrooms are good and clean and white and blue. Kerry, her Swedish husband and young daughter love caring for guests and welcome you with a hamper of goodies for a light supper and next day’s breakfast. You have the gardens to explore, your own private fenced pool, good restaurants and a small pub a stroll away.

We had heard that Beaux Reves was a pleasant holiday location but, when we arrived, we were amazed at just how perfect it is. Every room is decorated and furnished to the highest possible standard and the setting, including the private swimming pool is breathtakingly beautiful. This is definitely the sort of holiday accommodation that is bound to draw one back time and again. The hosts, Kerry & Tomas could not be more attentive and they are completely focused on ensuring that you enjoy every moment of your stay.

Having a large family, makes it so difficult to find a rental which can accomodate the 6 of us while maintaining a certain standard that we really look for when on holidays. Kerry and Tomas' property exceeded all our expectations. The house is magical surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. We had such wonderful weather and so the kids were able to enjoy the pool while mom and dad got to lounge about and relax. How serene! The attention to detail is seen throughout. From the beautiful decor to the super comfortable beds we were spoiled. Thank you Kerry and Tomas for Everything! A bientot!
