The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dordogne, or Périgord, region is one of the most beautiful parts of France traditionally with fine summers. It is well known to the French for its food and wine, leading to the saying, En Périgord, on mange bien, on boit bien. As the home of truffles and foie gras, it is an area where a visitor can eat extremely well in countless excellent and inexpensive restaurants. Just east of Bordeaux, it is also noted for its own vineyards, producing St. Emillion, Bergerac, Pécharmant, and Monbazillac. For relaxing at home, local markets provide treats such as strawberries, raspberries, asparagus, walnut cake and oils, olives and cheese. The region is famous for over a thousand castles, of which most date back to the Hundred Years' War that ravaged the region in the 13th century. As the centre of prehistory in France, the Dordogne has stunning cave paintings at Lascaux, les Eyzies and numerous other sites and is recognised as a world heritage site. The museum at Les Eyzies is well worth a visit.

Sarlat

Sarlat, one of the most fascinating and beautifully restored towns in France, offering the atmosphere and appearance of another age, with narrow steep alleys flanked by Medieval and Renaissance houses in honey-coloured stone tpped with massive stone slated roofs. It has more historic buildings than any other place of its size in France, and is the only town to be given three stars by the Michelin guides solely for the quality and ambience of its old town. It has one of the biggest weekly markets in France, which takes over most of the town every Saturday. There is a market on a Wednesday as well. Take a stroll through the old town on summer evenings, enjoying various 'animations' such as mimes and musicians by the gaslight lamps. All summer there are wonderful music festivals in nearby towns, while Sarlat has an open-air theatre festival in the market square in late July, the seating provides a roof top view of the stage. There is an international film festival in October.

"Lovely villa and pool - pity about no a/c"

This villa was more of duplex apartment as it was small but the decor was modern and the main bedroom was downstairs which was really nice and cooler. The location was good , 5 mins drive from sarlat … More

"Perfect!"

We arrived at the cottage after a long day travelling (having chosen to take Eurostar to Paris, the Teoz train to Souillac and then the bus transfer to Sarlat) but once we were shown around by the friendly agent we soon settled into our two week stay. We stayed at the beginning of June. We had chosen not to hire a car so every couple of days we took the 15 minute walk 'downhill' into Sarlat to stock up on goodies. The walk back 'uphill' took us about 25 minutes with a couple of breathers along the way. It is steep but we enjoy walking so took our time and treated ourselves to a cold beer on the terrace on our return back to the cottage! The cottage is set in very peaceful grounds and was perfect for us to switch off from our very busy working lives and we enjoyed watching the wildlife from the terrace. Was very pleased to see the red squirrels and great spotted woodpeckers! We loved the pool area and were lucky not to have to share it with the owners who were not staying in their house during our stay. Sarlat is very nice and we enjoyed exploring the alleyways and visiting the market. Overall, a perfect two week stay at a comfortable and clean cottage and would like to think that we will return again to Sarlat.

The cottage was very pleasant, quite compact and bijou and very nice for a couple. Whilst you could walk in to Sarlat centre, it was not an easy or pleasant walk and we had no wish to do it . However … More

Well presented cottage with good facilities and plenty of room, the beds are small doubles and very firm! Instructions for using the washing machine together with a washing line would have been a bon… More

We are sorry that our guests were not completely happy with their stay. The dreadful weather here in the Dordogne this spring has not helped holidaymakers in general to make the most of their stay! To clarify the two problems raised - the pool heating WAS NOT turned off. A minor electrical problem had caused the heat pump to trip out. We were only aware of this problem on the departure day of the guests - had they rung and informed us we would have come immediately to rectify the problem.
Internet connection was working normally - we suggested that they check the settings on their e mail account to speed up connection.
There is a washing line just behind the barbecue area - we can only imagine that they did not venture into the garden in the rain! (There is also a clothes airer for internal drying.)
To reassure future guests - the pool is currently at 28°C, and the sun is now shining!!

"You will not find a better presented home and pool"

We have rented villas in France for the past ten years. This one has to be the best presented home for you to enjoy your holiday.

It's location is perfect as it is extremely peaceful and yet you are only a short stroll into Sarlat so a car is not necessary in the evening.

It also has without question the cleanest and warmest pool I have ever seen. Kim and Jerry could not do enough to ensure that you have a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and although they are on site you really would not know they were there at all. Their 2 dogs are a sheer delight and are so calm and friendly.

I would not hesitate to recommend or use this property again
