Charming stone-built barn in the heart of the Dordogne.

Our barn, La Guillarmie, is situated on a unique, secluded hillside and is truly one of the most tranquil and relaxing places to be! The property is full of character and has everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday with family and friends. The picturesque local town, Le Bugue (4km), has been inhabited since prehistoric times - here there are shops, supermarkets, bars, cafes, restaurants and a twice-weekly market, not to be missed!

The barn is wonderfully located for exploring the local area. Caves, chateaux, gardens, sites of prehistoric interest, restaurants and vineyards border the Dordogne and Vezere rivers, which are perfect for swimming, canoeing and fishing. You are never short of things to do!

With lots of outdoor space, the barn is very secure for young families. Woodland paths allow the hills and valleys of the surrounding area to be explored on foot. A house book at the property holds all sorts of exciting discoveries about the local area and the Dordogne region. The hills and valleys of the Dordogne also offer the keen walker or cyclist a fantastically rich and varied terrain, with something interesting to see around every corner.

The barn is south facing with a private garden and private pool. Though the barn is marketed as sleeping 6, there are beds for up to eight people, with an additional two travel cots. In the past, the property has been regularly used by two families, with comfortable accommodation for all.

The Dordogne region

Few regions sum up the attractions of France better than the Dordogne. With its rich food, heady history, château-studded countryside and picturesque villages, the Dordogne has long been a favourite getaway for holiday makers. It's also famous for having some of France's finest prehistoric cave art, which can be found throughout the caverns and rock shelters of the Vézère Valley.

The weather in the Dordogne is very pleasant throughout the year. Temperatures in the summer can be comfortably into the 30s during the day, with warm evenings.

Le Bugue

The Dordogne has some wonderful attractions that appeal to holiday makers of all ages. For the active, tennis, golf and horse riding can be found locally. In the nearby hilltop town of Audrix (5km) there is also a waterpark, L'Etang du Bos, which has pools, slides, a lake with a beach, a cafe and a large children's play area. Circuses also appear throughout the summer and are usually free, being sponsored by the local supermarkets.

A great day out is to hire a canoe and spend a lazy afternoon spent drifting down the Dordogne river. The local chateaux are stunning, perched on the edge of huge limestone cliffs. Particularly recommended are the Chateau de Beynac (18km) and its hillside village which clings to the side of a near-vertical rock face, and the Chateau de Castelnaud (20km) which has a wonderful medieval museum with lots of activities for children. For the gastronome, the Dordogne will already be well known. The area is world-famous for its food – confit, fois gras, truffles, cheese, walnuts to name but a few of the local delicacies. In July and August there are many festivals, with evening food markets in most villages. There are also many famous regional wines to be enjoyed including Bergerac, Buzet, Duras, Monbazillac and St Emilion.

The Dordogne is celebrated for its stunning caves. Nearby there are two well worth visiting. Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac (5km) is a spectacular local cave in the lovely hilltop town of Audrix. Font-de-Gaume (5km) in nearby Les Eyzies has prehistoric cave paintings, the only site in France with these that is still open to the public. The gardens of Maquessayc (20km), perched on a rocky promontory are also a stunning place to visit, with plenty of shade if the weather is very hot and a terrace restaurant with what must be one of the best views in France.
