The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
This region offers crystal clean air and fertile ground in which truffles, nuts and mushrooms flourish, and the local farmers breed geese and ducks to produce the world's most exquisite foie gras. The hot Summer here is perfect for the vine, where local vineyards produce globally acclaimed wines and many other regional tipples, like Vin d'Noix. There are many places of historical interest well worth a visit. All the local Bastide towns of Eymet, Monflanquin, Castillonnes, Villereal and the simply beautiful villages of Monpazier, Issigeac (with its beautiful medieval houses and bishops palace), Pujols and Penne d'Agenais with its winding streets and the church at the summit of the hill are all within easy drive. These Bastide towns, so characteristic of the area, were constructed by both the French and the English when this area was fought over during the 100 Years War and the towns frequently changed hands, in the case of Castillonnes having been divided down the middle for many years. There are many interesting places for walkers and day trips. The renowned prehistoric sites of the eastern Dordogne, the famous cave paintings at Lascaux especially, the old cave dwellings including Roc St Christophe and many caves with wall paintings, etc. There are also the very pretty towns of Sarlat, Domme set on top of the hills, Roc Gageac on a cliff beside the river and the castles of Beynac and Biron. Ample for 2 to 4 people, this light and spacious cottage is an ideal self-catering home from which to enjoy the tranquil and peaceful grounds of Domaine de Juliette; close to all attractions and amenities and a perfect base to explore the delights of the Dordogne. A perfect romantic setting for couples, or an ideal location for any family or small group wishing to explore the rich and varied activities available in the area. We also welcome pets, where our situation here far from any traffic and immense grounds lends itself for being a wonderful environment for dogs too. The surrounding grounds comprise of 6.5 acres of open fields, meadow, lush landscaped gardens for you to explore and find a shady spot to relax in during your stay. There is an 11m x 6 m Romanesque style swimming pool set within a walled garden and loungers are provided to while away the hours under your own walnut tree. Figs, plums, and cherries are just some of the fruit trees you can sample and enjoy for breakfast or supper - dining al fresco on your veranda. A BBQ,full sized boules pitch, table tennis, 2 guest bikes, and badminton court are at your disposal or take a stroll direct from your door - not a main road in sight or ear shot!! This really is a truly perfect environment to re-charge those batteries, discover quiet moments, doze in a hammock, let your children loose to explore and venture, and indulge in the French pace of life. The night skies here are also so terrific, with the discovery of shooting stars, glow worms and utter silence being yet another joy to enjoy from a stay at Domaine de Juliette. Lastly, you can find reviews of Domaine de Juliette on Tripadvisor too, where we have been number 1 for over 2 years for our area.
