Exclusive Recommended Pool
Great Value

This site with breathtaking views has been a farm since 1903 and has recently become the much-loved home of two women in love with nature and the sheer beauty of this location.

On top of a hill facing Bergerac, the estate has three hills which offer different views of the town. Up here it’s all about silence, calm and retreat, but fabulous Bergerac is only a 5-minute drive away, so good restaurants, bars, shops and river sunsets are just a stone’s throw away.

The hostesses, keen to share their special idyll, have transformed an attached, independent and private cottage for guests and added a lovely heated pool for their exclusive use.

The hilly grounds of 12 hectares are vast and surrounded by fields, forest, lawns and fruit trees. Children have plenty of space to run around, but there is also table-football and two adult bikes are available. The kids will love the Shetland ponies, chickens and pigeons which the owners feed every day. Around the estate there is a hiking path in the surrounding forest.

Inside, the spacious cottage is comfortable, well-equipped and cozy. The fireplace makes it ideal at all times of the year.

Jolie Ferme provides the perfect escape to a rural setting, yet near a famous town in the spectacular Dordogne, which is full of châteaux, vineyards and wineries, fine restaurants and historical sites.

The ancient town of Bergerac is located just a few kilometres drive away from the villa. The town is characterised by its charming medieval features and original cobbled pavements. Boasting boutique shops, restaurants and pavement cafes it is most appreciated on foot.

Situated in the renowned Dordogne, Bergerac is a real gateway to the surrounding wine region. Indulge in the famous Maison des Vins before exploring the countless wineries and vineyards in the beautiful countryside.

During the summer months, the town is thriving with regular markets, concerts and festivals. The whole family will enjoy a boat trip up the river, with the opportunity to see local chateaux and typical French villages. Within the local surroundings, Bergerac has a whole host of activities on offer, including caves, castles, bowling, water parks and lakes, to name a few. So whether you’re seeking a relaxing getaway immersed in a rural environment, or an action packed trip, Bergerac is the ideal town to accommodate all your desires.

  • Lovely stay!

    on 28/09/2019

    Location, views and accommodation!

  • It's the second time we stayed at Jolie Ferme!

    on 27/04/2019

    We'd been looking forward to the return and it was just as brilliant as last year. The warm and friendly welcome was lovely. This is defenitly a well equipped and comfortable Gite which is surrounded by beautiful views. I can't imagine anybody not being happy with their stay here....... Thank you and hope to see you again.

  • Amazing Countryside!

    on 23/06/2018

    What a lovely relaxing holiday. The pool was welcomed in the heat of the day. The bed was extremely comfortable with blackouts shutters making our rest perfect. The locale has vineyards that sell you wine in easy walking distance. The country side is wooded between the vineyards and is full of wildlife. The beautiful town of Bergerac is 10 minutes drive or cycle away (it is on top of a hill with great views) or half an hours walk away.

  • Amazing property!

    on 17/04/2018

    We’ve just returned from Jolie Ferme after a brilliant stay. The property is perfect in every aspect, great location with spectacular views. It is well equipped, very clean and the bed is the most comfortable we’ve ever slept in. The owners of the property are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We’ve already booked for a return holiday here and if you’re thinking about booking this accommodation, you definitely won’t be disappointed.

  • Beautiful location

    on 02/10/2016

    We had a lovely stay at Jolie Ferme. The home was very clean and comfortable. The views the home offered of the city of Bergerac were stunning especially at night. We really enjoyed walking along the paths and the kids enjoyed watching the deer passing by.

  • Strongly recommended

    on 08/08/2016

    We had a wonderful vacation at Jolie Ferme. The owners are very welcoming and dedicated. The accommodation was exactly as described, whereby the view of Bergerac was even more splendid than in photo. The accommodation was very nice and very comfortable with nothing amiss, especially in the kitchen. We were all along in all the extension of the property giving a real holiday feeling. We strongly advise staying here if you go to France and in Dordogne.

  • Very special place

    on 14/06/2016
