Countryside villa Dordogne for families - dating from the 17th century, this countryside villa with large pool in the Dordogne is a beautifully restored farmhouse that forms part of a three-house hamlet in the heart of the Perigord. It sits in rolling countryside, with space for children to play and many children's games and activities.
This house is close to the village of Bourdeilles, with its small chateau, Sunday morning market and some good restaurants. Attractive Brantome is your nearest town - located in a lovely setting on the river Dronne it is known locally as the "Venice of Perigord". You will find plenty more restaurants and pavement cafes here, as well as boat or canoe hire: you can take boat trips to riverside restaurants too. There is an abbey to visit, and the Friday market is one of the nicest in the area, although you will find plenty of markets to choose from in all the local villages.
The capital of the département is Perigueux, which has an appealing medieval old town, and is just 20 minutes' drive from the farmhouse. One of the "most beautiful villages in France", Aubeterre sur Dronne, would also make a good outing - there is also a river beach here with a sandy beach, cafe and facilities - lovely for families. And some of the Dordogne's most important and famous cave systems are not far, with both La Bugue and Lascaux just over an hour or so away.
If there are some days when you want to relax at the farmhouse but not have to think about cooking, please let us know - home-cooked meals are available at this property, upon prior request.
