To the northern edge of the beautiful Dordogne, The Hideaway is in a stunning 1.5 acre hill top setting.

The Hideaway is tucked away and is very pretty, both inside and out, is extremely well equipped and has its own south facing private garden and BBQ area with great views. The pretty gardens are perfect for lounging around and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere, not to mention the sunshine! The further communal garden area is fully fenced and contains a woodland of beautiful trees.

The entire grounds are dotted with containers of colourful flowers and beautiful roses and it is immaculately maintained. Pick your own figs and strawberries in high summer!

Just beyond the main gates is a ridge-top stroll where you can enjoy the stunning rolling landscape. In the evenings our guests can relax and enjoy dinner at one of the many fantastic local restaurants or BBQ 'at home' whilst watching the sunset, accompanied by a drop of the locally produced wine or cognac!

For adventures further afield, then beautiful countryside, bustling riverside towns, leisure activities and tourist attractions are just a short drive away.

We try to make your holiday as easy for you as possible. We are helpful when needed, but very discreet, and leave you alone to relax.

Additionally, for stays of 7 nights minimum, upon your arrival, we will supply you with a welcome pack consisting of bread, butter, jam, fruit juice, fruit, cheese, eggs, milk, tea, coffee, sugar and a bottle of wine!

The pool is shared with The Sunflower gite which sleeps 4 people.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

Towards the north of the Dordogne, and bordering the charming Charente, this is a beautiful part of France, well known for its rolling hills, fields of sunflowers and rural charm.


There are many activities on offer in the area, including canoeing, horse-riding, fishing, hiking and cycling.

Beautiful towns and places to visit include Brantome, “the Venice of the Perigord”, Aubeterre - a bustling riverside town, or just potter around the shops, cafes and markets of our nearest pretty towns of St Severin and Riberac.

Venture 5 minutes west and arrive in the Charente region, where you can visit Cognac (80 minutes' drive), or head South to Bergerac (75 minutes' drive) for some wine sampling! Two nearby beaches are at Aubeterre (river beach) which is 15 minutes' drive, or the Jemaye Lake, 35 minutes' drive.

If all this seems too energetic, settle back with a good book in the garden or by the pool, as The Hideaway is the perfect place to get away from it all.
