The
Experience

The landscaping is harmonious, the outdoor lighting atmospheric, and top quality oak and stone have been used throughout. Poised between the Perigord Noir and the Perigord Pourpre (Bergerac and Bordeaux on one side, caves and castles on the other) is a hilltop retreat with 13th-century origins. For small groups holidaying together, particularly those who like their own private space, it’s perfect. The owners, a friendly English couple, live to one side of a large gravelled courtyard dotted with lavender; and the gîtes face the other way. Alongside: a huge communal barn where you can get together; a simple kitchen with Nespresso  on tap; a TV corner for kids; a dining terrace with marvellous views. Baby equipment, toys and games abound, the pool, hot tub and terraces are immaculately furnished, and the laundry is next to the gym. ‘Cottage’ sleeps two, ‘Stable End’ four, and ‘Bread Oven’ (a pretty sage green-shuttered house, its floors linked by a crafted spiral stair) sleeps six. Borrow the bikes and pedal down to Villamblard (1km), pick up croissants, visit the weekly market, pop into the bar for a simple meal.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Michael Merrifield

  • Discover this authentic French area, a hideaway off the beaten track and away from the tourist trail. This is the true French lifestyle; restaurants full of locals serving rustic French food that are unbelievably good value set in pretty quaint villages.
  • Only half an hour from the capital of the Dordogne, the beautiful medieval city of Perigueux. Visit the magnificent cathedral, a UNESCO heritage site, wander through the cobbled streets, the bustling markets and stop for lunch in one of the pretty squares.
  • Walking and cycle trails lead from your very own front door in the beautiful countryside. Everything is provided- rucksacks, picnic rug, picnic plates, maps and directions, binoculars and even a nature trail and scavenger hunt to keep children entertained.
  • After a day out sightseeing, relax and enjoy a freshly made 3 course dinner on your private terrace or in the beautiful barn and admire the stunning panoramic views of the countryside in the evening sun, the perfect place to sit whilst watching the sun set
  • Swim at the nearby lake (a 10 minute drive) with a sandy beach, then enjoy some tapas and organic wine whilst watching some live French music as the sun goes down - a beautiful setting and a lovely atmosphere.
  • Try some wine-tasting and buy your own wine straight from the local producer surrounded by vineyards. The local Bergerac wine and dessert wine is great value, or drive out to Saint Emilion or Bordeaux for the world class outstanding vintage claret.
