Les Charmes de Carlucet

St Crépin & Carlucet, Dordogne

A superb golden-stone house for large groups just 15 minutes from Sarlat and the Lascaux caves. Visit markets, bask by the vast pool


6 bedrooms


Sleeps 12


In rural Dordogne, home to humanity for millennia, make this elegant old manor yours for a week or more; bring friends and family, it has bags of space in its contemporary/period rooms. The manicured garden and the pool are huge, too. Cradled by an unostentatiously smart interior in calm colours and pleasing textures, settle down peacefully by the wood-burner in the big sitting room (the gigantic TV has its own corner and sofas) or in the garden. Dine in style in the colonnaded dining room, all white and wood, mirrors and glass, on dishes you’ve prepared in the amazingly well-equipped stainless steel kitchen – or take a 5-minute stroll to a great restaurant, The Black Duck. Upstairs bedrooms have blissfully comfortable new bedding, fine bathrooms, canvasses from Kerry’s photographs of Monet’s garden – they used to live near Giverny – and original paintings of this area. The biggest and best room even has its own terrace. Kerry and Thomas will lay on a light supper for your arrival and the next day’s breakfast. A dynamic, cosmopolitan couple, they live on site and are always willing to help and advise.

Local points of interest from Kerry Flaherty-Rask

  • Sarlat: Medieval city, splendid architecture, full of surprises, beautiful daytime & at night! Market Wednesday and Saturdays. Beynac, stunning, picture village, French during the 100 year war. It's where the film "Chocolate" with Juliet Binoche was made.
  • Along the spectular valley of the Dordogne, a rich heritage can be found of stunning Chateaux perched above the valley, beautiful gardens and breathtaking towns and villages like Domme, Castlenaud and Beynac and Rogue Gageac, carved into the rocks.
  • The area is fantastic for truly memorable canoeing trips or cruises along the majestic Dordogne valley. There's several places along the valley where canoes can be rented and cruises can be joined. Roque-Gageac,a stunning village is very popular for this.
  • The area is littered with stunning cycling routes suitable for all abilities through stunning scenery. Bike maps are available in the villa. 3 of the best bike routes in the region intersect right outside our front door. We can help with bike rental.
  • Along the river Vezere from Montignac, 15 mins away with the world famous cave of Lascaux, to Les Eyzies in the Dordogne valley is just 25 mins away, centre of prehistory in France, you can find over 150 world heritage sites related to prehistoric man.
  • Also close to the beautiful Lot region, where you find the majestic town of Rocamadour only 35 mins away. Also wonderful Grouffe de Padirac is not to be missed. The most amazing cave in the region. Also the stunning medieval town of Mantel is close by.
