This is your perfect luxury holiday rental home whatever time of the year you wish to visit the beautiful Perigord Noir. Situated on the outskirts of bustling Sarlat for easy access to all the shops & restaurants & yet within a peaceful valley for a completely relaxing & tranquil experience. This is your perfect location for seeing all that the beautiful Perigord Noir has to offer as Sarlat, Beynac, Roque Gageac, Domme, the Dordogne River and the Chateaux of Castlenaud, Marqueyssac, Beynac & Milandes are all with a 5-10 minute drive of this house. Even the world famous Lascaux caves are within half an hour. It couldn't be better !

This is a beautiful 16th Century mellow coloured stone house which has been fitted to a high standard thoughout for your comfort. This lovely period house with it's rare Pigeonnier tower which has been the subject of many paintings & photographs by local artists & visitors new to the area. This was a house built for the landed Gentry of the 16th Century which still looks out over it's own meadows complete with walnut trees & a babbling brook with the occasional trout. The house is in a sunny valley with woodland on both sides & if you are lucky you can see deer & hares crossing the meadow in the early morning or at dusk. In the summer evenings, whilst enjoying the last of the sun with a glass of local wine, you can hear beautiful nightingales singing as you watch the colourful hot air balloons passing overhead.

This is a wonderful period house which has been lovingly restored to it's former glory throughout 2013 with a beautiful open plan living, dining & kitchen area which makes a perfect family & friends space. You will find new soft furnishings throughout, comfortable two seater sofa and two armchairs, two window seats facing north and south with cushions, new 5ft King & 6ft Super King or Twin beds, with deep memory foam pocket spring mattresses, brand new en-suite shower rooms, a luxury heated salt water pool, which has soft water without any horrible chemicals, measuring 10x4m with easy access Roman end, with a shallow & deep end & fence surround for security. Everything that you need is provided in this house for your enjoyment but if something is missing, just ask & we'll do our best to find it for you.

The one bedroom self contained apartment is available from April 2014 and can be rented in conjunction with the house to accommodate up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms with 3 ensuite shower rooms, 2 kitchen and 2 living rooms. The main house, pool area and outside terrace are all geared for 6 guests staying at the property. The apartment will only be let on it's own if the house is empty, this will usually only be during the period mid October to April. For privacy we do not let the 2 bedroom house and the 1 bedroom apartment separately.

POOL HEATING - Please note that there may be a 100 Euro surcharge per week for pool heating during the cooler months of April, May, September & October depending on the weather at that time.

POOL OPENING - The pool is open from 1st April (or earlier depending on Easter holidays & the weather) until mid October (or later depending on the weather).


FROM APRIL 2014 it is possible to rent a 1 bedroom self contained apartment in conjunction with the 2 bedroom house to make a 3 bedroom 3 ensuite home.

The whole house is over 3 levels, the ground level is a one bedroom apartment with it's own kitchen & living room and independent entrance.

The middle level is the main holiday home which is accessed via the original stone staircase. On this level is the open plan large kitchen, dining & living room with dining and seating for 6 guests. On the next floor there is a King bedroom & a Twin bedroom, both of which have extra long & deep mattress memory foam pocket spring beds, both rooms have ensuite shower rooms.

We have designed the house this way to give greater flexibility to our guests with rental rates according to number of guests staying. We will only rent the apartment on its own if the two bedroom house is not let (generally this would be the winter period), this is to ensure that there is ONLY ONE GUEST BOOKING STAYING IN THE WHOLE PROPERTY AT ONE TIME.

On the sunny south facing terrace there is a dining table and chairs for 6 guests & also 6 very comfortable sun loungers poolside.

Rental rates shown are for either the 2 bed home or the whole house, please enquire for winter rates in the apartment.
