Location description from owner
The Dordogne region
Discover 15,000 years of French history in the Dordogne, one of France's most beautiful and unspoilt regions. Starting from Les Eyzies, where 'Cro-Magnon man', one of the earliest modern humans, was first discovered, you can explore an ancient world of underground caves, historic castles, lush farmland and elegant châteaux. You can also take a boat along the Dordogne River, visit cliff-side villages, dine in majestic surroundings and wonder at the perfectly preserved prehistoric cave paintings of Grottes de Font-de-Gaume. In addition to its castles, chateaux, churches, bastides and cave fortresses, the Périgord region has preserved from centuries past, a number of wonderful villages which still have their market halls, dovecotes, tories (stone huts), churches, abbeys and castles. Saint-Leon-sur-Vezere, Connezac, Saint-Jean-de-Côle, La Roque-Gageac and many others are real jewels of architecture. As for the old quarters of Périgueux or Bergerac, restored and developed into pedestrian areas, they have regained their former charm. A number of small towns, such as Brantôme, Issigeac, Eymet and Mareuil, have withstood the often brash changes of modern times. The climate is very mild and pleasant, with generous sun from spring to autumn. The region has a merited very high reputation for excellent food and specialties, and most restaurants offer reasonably priced generous menus and local wines like Bergerac and Cahors as well as Bordeaux.
Sarlat is one of the most attractive and alluring towns in south-western France. Sarlat is a medieval town that developed around a large Benedictine abbey of Carolingian origin. Because modern history has largely passed it by, Sarlat has remained preserved and one of the towns most representative of 14th century France. It owes its current status on France's Tentative List for future nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage site to the enthusiasm of writer, resistance fighter and politician André Malraux, who, as Minister of Culture (1960-1969), restored the town and many other sites of historic significance throughout France. The centre of the old town consists of impeccably restored stone buildings and is largely car-free. Sarlat throughout the summer has an extensive program of music, arts, night markets, fairs and activities for all ages. The town of Sarlat has a wonderful food market each Wednesday and Saturday. Also Le Bugue offers an organic market on Tuesday and St Cyprien on Sunday. Hot air ballooning, canoeing on the Dordogne, cycling, golfing, hiking and hundreds of chateaux and caves to explore .

- Very Good
This lovely home was our home base during our two-week stay in the Dordogne region. Our group included 4 adults and two children under 10. The house itself is very comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms are all well appointed. The highlight of our stay was the fantastic, heated salt water pool. The owners of the property, Linda and George, were always available for our needs and ready to recommend day trips, restaurants, etc. This was the perfect family vacation destination and we would happily stay here again. Additionally, the Dordogne offers countless hilltop towns with beautiful historic sites, two wonderful rivers for canoeing and swimming and a relaxed approach to life.
“Beautiful cottage at Carmensac”
We stayed for our third consecutive year at Mulberry Cottage and have enjoyed some of our best holidays at this lovely place. The cottage and gardens are beautifully presented and have excellent facilities. Linda and George, the owners, go out of their way to provide every comfort and are readily available for advice and tips about places to visit. Each time we have come to the cottage we have felt restored and refreshed by the quietness and tranquillity. We made good use of the lovely pool and Jacuzzi which are situated with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a small gym for the more energetic. Although this was our third stay we still found plenty of interesting new places to visit (with advice from Linda and George). Highlights included the gardens at Eyrignac and the castle at Beynac, as well as walks in the immediate surroundings of Carmensac. This is a most wonderful place with kind and generous hosts and we would love to return again.
“Jackpot! Incredible Villa!”
Four couples (58+) stayed for a week and used this beautiful villa as our headquarters for exploring the wonderful Dordogne Valley. Linda and George (owners) were so very helpful and friendly and are English speakers:) They were great with advice of where to go and what you can do/see in the area. Communications and details before we arrived and while there were clear as well, a very important point when you are far from home. After a bullet train ride from Paris(very nice), we had 2 rental cars (picked up in Libourne) which were needed for this area. We wish we could have stayed for another week because there were just not enough days to see everything in the area. AND resting/relaxing at the villa was such a temptation as well and not enough time to do that either. About food: local markets were so great and Linda arranged a chef to come 2 nights for dinners prepared for us in the villa. Price was comparable to restaurants and wine provided too! Here are the other things you wonder about: Yes, the beds were comfortable, kitchen with nice appliances and well equipped, there were plenty of bathrooms, pictures on the web site are very accurate, everything was VERY clean, pool and hot tub and grounds were immaculate, owners accessible (next door), scenery around was heavenly. We do hope we will be able to return to Mulberry Tree Villa again!
