As bed-and-breakfasts go, it cuts a striking figure, with its towers and medieval tapestries and ancestral portraits, set among trees imported from around the world in the early 1800s, including American cedars and sequoias. The castle is filled with upholstered chairs, chandeliers, richly decorated wallpaper and fancy clocks. There was…

Overview of Biron Farmhouse

What Oliver loves…

  • Modern and elegant yet still retains homey feel- huge selection of DVD's and board games make this the perfect venue for family holidays. It is a home from home
  • Lovely open plan living room and kitchen means communal area is light and airy
  • Surrounding woodland is perfect for rural walks although the nearest village is still easily walkable (Lacapelle Biron)

What you should know…

  • There is a steep hill on way back from the bar
  • Saltwater pool with not enough loungers for 14 guests to sit around
  • Quite a small and cosy atmosphere - Very much has the feel of a family home rather than a luxurious getaway

A luxurious and stylishly modernised property owned by English designers, perfectly situated near the village of Lacapelle Biron. Because Biron Farmhouse is located on a hill overlooking the local countryside, the views are stunning.

At Biron Farmhouse, the beautiful gardens are comprised of fruit and nut trees, a small wooded area and plenty of areas to dine 'al fresco.' There is a dining area as well as a plancha table, modern Italian sun loungers, tables, chairs and a large umbrella.

Lacapelle Biron has essential shops, an English speaking doctor, a pharmacy, a post office, butchers, patisserie and a restaurant as well as an excellent local caterer if you would like a special meal cooked at the house.

The fifth bedroom has a double bed and an en-suite bathroom.  This room also has a private pool side entrance and is situated on the lower ground floor.

The farmhouse is ideal for family reunions, special occasions, walking groups or just a relaxing holiday.  The open plan sitting, dining areas and fully fitted kitchen are on the ground floor with access to the sunny pool terrace for al fresco dining. The farmhouse comes equipped with free wireless internet access and satellite TV. A highchair and cot are available on request.

The salt water swimming pool is situated to take advantage of the stunning view at the front of the property. The pool has a remote controlled alarm system and is 1 metre at the shallow end and 2.2 metres at the deep end (comfortably deep enough for diving).

The Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it).

So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
