Welcome to "Maison de Joseph". We have dedicated our beloved french home to the man who made it possible. Joseph, our family patriarch, who worked hard his entire life only to pass away shortly after retiring.

Our spacious and adorable stone cottage is located inside the beautiful bastide of Domme, France. Holiday letting to begin on Saturday, August 13, 2015. The home is under renovation with new master en-suite bedroom, kitchen, and baths, furniture, and decor. It includes exposed beams and stone walls in some rooms, wooden flooring, fireplace, and large, fully equipped kitchen. It has two en-suite bedrooms with a third next to a bath and water closet, three in total.

Our stone cottage was one of the original homes that founded the village and was constructed in the early 14th century. It was built near Porte del Bos, or the southern entrance gate, and was occupied by the "town guardian". Today, arrow slits used to ward off invaders can still be found in the cellar wall.

The lounge is graced with a beautiful wood-burning fireplace, 100cm flat-panel television, U.K. Satellite, telephone with local and free calls to the U.K. and U.S. Linens and towels are provided. This is a traditional, yet thoroughly modern holiday home. The photos here were taken during, or shortly after the renovation, but our home will fully furnished with comfortable bedding and furnishings. Of course wi-fi is available throughout our spacious home with a repeater signal that ensures each room has coverage. Updated photos will be posted here as we complete the renovation We want you to be happy and enjoy your stay in Domme.

If your desire is to stay inside the town walls of Domme, please be aware that not all listings under the "Domme" heading are actually located in Domme. Many are actually in the country or villages nearby and in some cases miles away. Our spacious home is located inside the village ramparts (please see photos) and is ideal for quick ingress and egress to the village, while avoiding traffic and pedestrians which are common in holiday season. It has a large, sunny, and private terrace surrounded by a stone wall. The steps to the main square are only about ten meters from the front door. There is a small garden for guests located about 100 meters away which contains a large plum tree and a place to sit and relax. Parking is nearby and our free pass will be available. Domme at sunset is spectacular and a memory you will cherish.

There are many restaurants, shops, boutiques, and walking paths nearby along with the famous caves below the village (tours available). The village of Cenec is 2 kilometers down the hill, and historical Sarlat is only a ten minute drive north. Castelnaud, La Roque Gageac, and Beynac are minutes away. Thera are many canoe and Kayak rental vendors on the Dordogne River just below the village. Domme is the proverbial heart of the Dordogne and is close to everything.

The Dordogne region

Domme is above the Dordogne River in the heart of prime Dordogne activities. There are several places below the town in Cenac to let a boat, kayak, etc. Historical Sarlat is just minutes away, along with other amazing villages such as Castelnaud, Beynac, La Roque Gageac, and Rocamadour, Sarlat La Caneda is an amazing medieval landscape of fantastic restaurants, shops, and its amazing markets held on Wednesday and Saturday. Many movies have been filmed there and it is a site to behold.


Domme is a bastide, or fortified village, on the top of a hill overlooking the Dordogne River. Established in the 13th century, you will be charmed by is history, ancient preserved buildings, restaurants and shops, central church, and amazing views from the outer points looking out of the river and bridges, castles, and beautiful valleys. The town has two entrances, is surrounded by a stone wall, and serves as a top tourist destination.

Domme has a weekly market in the town square. Underneath Domme is the famous grotto, or subterranean caves, containing amazing geologic formations. The grotto was also the home to french resistance members fighting the Nazi occupation of France in World War II. Walking Tours are conducted throughout the day.
