About this location

The Dordogne region


Although rurally located Lavaud is near to plenty of local attractions, including caves, chateaux, quaint villages and restaurants. With St Jean de Cole only a few minutes drive away this beautiful village has been voted as one of France's prettiest. The magnificent chateau at Jumilhac is well worth a visit along with the Venice of the Perigord - Brantome.

For the more adventurous of you then there is canoeing at Brantome or on the River Dordogne near Le Bugue.

Being just 3 hours drive away to the Massif Central for skiing and 3 hours drive to the coast those of you who wish to venture further afield can easily do so. Bordeaux is just over 2 hours drive away.

With the capital of the Dordogne, Perigueux, being only 30 mins away a visit to the old town is a must. The twice weekly market and vast choice of restaurants will make the trip one to remember.



Nearby there is horse riding, golf, fishing and canoeing. There are also swimming lakes with beaches and waterslides. At the farmhouse there is a full size tennis court, as well as a fitness/games room with table tennis and pool table, boules, badminton, swings and plenty of board games to keep the whole family happy.

"Fantastic property, the perfect holiday as it has something for everyone."

Lavaud is a truly remarkable property, with fabulous views across a stunning valley. The owners who live nearby have done a remarkable job of creating a perfect holiday destination which would suit everyone, whether you are active and sporty, or just after a holiday to totally chill out and relax. The facilities Lavaud has to offer are the best I have every come across, especially for the price. The gym is brilliant, amazing room, with so much equipment, our teenage boys didn't want to leave, and have asked if they could take more friends another time.
The property is idle for several families, as there is so much to do there, you really don't need to go anywhere else, however if you can drag yourself out, there are some fantastic restaurants and pretty villlages nearby.
Overall a brilliant holiday property especially with teenage sporty boys!

You will want for nothing. We thouroughly recommend a holiday here.
