Aillac farmhouse is located in a small hamlet of houses 2km away from the beautiful village of St. Pierre de Frugie.  It is found halfway between Limoges and Perigueux, on the edge of the Dordogne, bordering the Limousin.  The farmhouse is set within the Parc Naturel du Perigord-Limousin and surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Limoges Airport is located approximately 40 minutes away. Calais is a 6-7 hour drive.

The towns of La Coquille and Chalus - where Richard the Lionheart was fatally wounded - are nearby. The prehistoric caves at Les Eyzies and old towns such as Rocamadour, Bergerac, and St. Emilion are within reasonable distance.

There are several medieval market towns within easy driving distance of the farmhouse.  Thiviers has a traditional farmers' market and Piegut has a market every Wednesday where you can buy fresh fish, oysters, and local produce.  Nontron, the principal town of the Perigord Vert, is not very far away. It has ancient ramparts and a fine square from the 18th century. Visit the chateau at Jumilhac le Grand to experience spectacular views.

The local produce of the area includes foie gras, truffles, cepes, confit, and clafoutis. Guests will find Cep wild mushrooms growing in the farmhouse garden. Local wines cover all budgets from Bergerac to St. Emilion, and Pineau to Cognac. The vineyards in Bordeaux and distilleries in Cognac are well worth a day out.

Aillac Farmhouse is 40 minutes from the cities of Limoges and Perigueux. Between them you will find the usual tourist attractions, caves, chateaux, churches, aquariums, war memorials and museums. 

The town of Brantome, known as 'The Venice of the Perigord Vert', offers a lovely day out: perhaps try canoeing in the picturesque setting, followed by a picnic.

There are plenty of fun days out in the local region, including velo-railing (an unusual experience of biking on train tracks), quad biking, karting, and Acrobois (acrobatics in the woods). There are various swimming lakes in the vicinity of the farmhouse, and plenty of private lakes for fishing.

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.

Reviews

  • Everything was Great

    Posted by Nicholas on 10/10/2017

    Great service, house was exactly as advertised, hassle free.

  • Well done!

    Posted by Kate & Stephen H. on 30/07/2017

    All went well getting to the farmhouse, and access was easy regarding security keys etc.
    The housekeeper (and husband) popped round on Sunday morning to sort out the pool and TV, and gave us lots of good ideas for lunch, sightseeing etc. They were great. The master bedroom was nice and airy, but the bed squeaked a lot!! Some WD40 might be useful here. The kitchen was tiny but well appointed with utensils, plates, candles, books, games etc. all of which was great. Lots of love and appreciation.

  • A great experience

    Posted by Jane A. on 14/07/2017

    Thanks for all your help. Your company is great and we have had a great experience booking with you. Would definitely recommend Oliver's Travels and book with you again

    We (two families with four children aged 3-10) spent a week at Aillac Farmhouse in late August 2015. It was a lovely week. The farmhouse is very spacious and very comfortably furnished. There is ample seating for everyone in the inside and outside living and eating areas. The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery etc. The bathrooms are modern and there was always plenty of hot water. The towels were large and fluffy and the beds comfortable.
    We were greeted by an English house keeper and made to feel very welcome.
    The house is situated in beautiful, peaceful countryside. There is a play park nearby and a choice of supermarkets and small towns a short drive away. We also visited Perigueux, Brantome and the caves of the Vézère valley.
    If there was one thing I could change, it would be the pool. As it is unheated and the weather was cool when we arrived, it was very cold. By the middle of the week, once the temperature outside was back up to the late 20's and into the 30's, we couldn't get the children out of it!
    A wonderful place to stay.
