Exclusive Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids

The owners of Joli Champ had a clear and simple plan: to create family friendly holiday homes in the heart of the Dordogne where castles, caves, market towns, vineyards and restaurants offer endless delights for the young and old.

The result is three simple yet charming stone houses made with families in mind, plus a host of handy and thoughtful services, designed to make guests’ holidays easy and carefree.

Joli Champ is a detached and elegant restored barn with a private heated pool with electric security cover as well as a gated play area, patio with barbecue and lovely dining area.

Indoors there are three bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen/lounge as well as a mezzanine with children’s toys including a doll’s house and a pirate ship. The kitchen is well-equipped and has the added bonus of offering a view over to the pool and fields.

Joli Champ benefits from a peaceful countryside setting with vineyards and small farms ideal for exploring by car or bike. Yet a village is only three minutes’ drive away and there is easy access to the Dordogne’s many attractions, like its pretty villages, night markets, châteaux and vineyards. Eymet is only 10 minutes away, a fun aqua park 15 minutes and Bergerac, Duras and Issigeac are all under 30 minutes away.

Relaxing and fun family holidays are guaranteed at Joli Champ, so it’s no wonder that many guests return year after year.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill'otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel. 

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

The nearest village with all the basic amenities you need for your stay is just 3 minutes away. Here you will find a boulangerie, a minimarket, a pharmacy, a bank and a post office. A vibrant wine tasting fair takes place around mid July, gathering more than 30 wine-makers from Bergerac and surrounding areas.

The bastide town of Eymet, sitting on the banks of the Dropt River, is just 10mins away. It is dotted with old buildings, alleyways, shops, bars, restaurants and a weekly market every Thursday to delight locals and tourists alike.

The charming medieval village of Issigeac is 25 minutes away where you will be impressed by its fascinating architecture, winding streets and its colourful Sunday morning market selling local produce. There are also boutiques, excellent restaurants and night markets in summer. Very popular events are the 'Foire aux Paniers et à la Vannerie' in July and the Medieval Day in August!

The old town of Bergerac (25 minutes) has kept its architectural heritage from the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries that can be seen in the half-timbered houses and narrow streets, full of local boutiques and good restaurants. Here, you will also find the unmissable 'Maisons de Vins' and will have the opportunity to take a tour along the 'Route de Vins'. Bergerac is also the starting point to discover the castles of the region such as Duras and Montbazillac.

For fun days out, there is an Aqua Park just 15 minutes away. It has swimming pools, water slides, beach volley, jacuzzi, sauna, spa, snack bar and evening entertainment. Moreover, the Bergerac Karting is also close by.

The nearest airports are Bergerac, Brive la Gaillarde and Toulouse, with Limoges, Rodez, Carcassonne and Bordeaux being further convenient options, all within a 3 hours' drive.

Although flying is the quickest way to get here, driving is a lovely way to travel and see other parts of France en route: get on a ferry and cross the Eurotunnel! The journey from Calais to the property is just 8 hours. Alternatively you can choose to travel by train, with the closest railway station being in Bergerac.

  • Relaxing stay!

    Posted by Yukari on 11/02/2019

    Joli Champ was beautiful, our family spent 4 nights here over the New Years and it was just what we needed. A quiet, homely villa with all the facilities you need for a enjoyable stay. We spent a lot of our time just relaxing in the living room with the fire going and the views of the fields.

    Everything was of the highest standard. The furnishings, the pool, the wonderful welcome pack, the support of Helen the property manager and the location of the property. The tiny details all made the property excellent.

  • Very Nice Stay!

    Posted by Jennifer on 07/07/2018

    House, location, furnishings and cleanliness all amazing. We stayed for two weeks.

  • Amazing Holiday!

    Created on 31/05/2018

    We have travelled a very long way were not for a moment disappointed! From markets, wineries, chateaux’s and vineyards - all fairy tale perfection!
    It’s a shame we didn’t know about this magical spot when our children were small!

  • Such A Great Time!

    Created on 27/05/2018

    We have had the most magical holiday! Very special!!Loved visiting Monpazier, Issigeac, Dommey Sarlat! Children loved the pool and the Netflix was great to have too! The house was so comfy and cosy with every comfort! The Neom products was a surprise and fabulous! Thank you so much for such a lovely family holiday! We plan to come back soon!

  • A fab holiday!!

    Created on 21/08/2017

    We had a truly wonderful 10 days at Joli Champ, so much so that our youngest son cried himself to sleep the night before we had to leave! The house was very well stocked & there was nothing that we needed that wasn't already there. The play area & dressing up clothes were wonderful for our young daughter, a really lovely thought. We all loved the pool & the children spent hours each day splashing about. The furnishings were of a fantastic standard & we all loved chilling out on the Loaf sofas?? The area was great, with so much going on that we had plenty to do, the night markets were wonderful & plentiful. The property was far enough away from everything though that it was really peaceful & we had a wonderful view of the stars every night. We'll definitely be back. P.S. Helen was lovely too & it was lovely to know that she was on the end of the phone if we needed anything. A fab holiday!!

  • Outstanding!
