Overview

Recommended Pool
Sustainable Collection
Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

City-dwellers who don’t require a complete escape to the country will adore this villa in the Dordogne, on the outskirts of Bergerac in lovely residential area just 2km from the centre. Here you’ll revel in the large lawned garden and private pool, while remaining close enough to the city centre to walk there. This villa comes with urban comforts; you’ll especially appreciate the large reclining sofa and ultra-modern kitchen. Two covered outdoor terraces invite you to dine al fresco, soaking in a little bit of the French countryside feeling before you make your way into town.

Walk (or bus) just 2 km to Bergerac’s Old Town, where the winding streets hold medieval architectural treasures in addition to the boutiques and restaurants. A few Michelin-recommended restaurants are in the Old Town - La Table du Marché Couvert and L’Imparfait. At the end of your evening, you might take in a show at Le Music Hall for a burlesque-style spectacle.

Bergerac is also the centre of the region’s wine production; you must visit the Musee du Vin to learn all about the local appellation. Rent a car for a day trip (at least) to explore the dozens of wineries radiating out from Bergerac along the Dordogne...you'll be so glad you did.

  • The owners are aiming to install air-conditioning for 2024 - watch this space for more information.

Reviews

  • Lovely

    on 10/09/2023

    Villa lovely and pool essential. Very hot and quite a lot of biting bugs..anthisan brilliant.

  • Perfect family holiday

    on 30/08/2023

    We were welcomed by the owner who was hugely helpful in explaining anything we needed to know for our stay (even explaining where is best to park the car to avoid the sun!). The house is beautiful and perfect for a relaxing week away with children - the pool is very well maintained and safe, the patio area is easily big enough for everyone to stretch out and relax, the kitchen is very well equipped, the lounge is amazing, I could go on... Bergerac is a beautiful town and the surrounding area easily offers enough to do for a week or more. Monbazillac is definitely a highlight if you like wine too. Highly recommended.

  • Beautiful villa!

    on 18/07/2023

    Beautiful villa, immaculately clean and lively outside area. The hosts were very helpful. We will definitely return.

  • Beautiful

    on 16/07/2023

    Beautiful villa, well-kept and pristine. Very friendly and helpful owners in neighbouring property.

  • The villa is fantastic.

    on 18/06/2023

    The villa is fantastic. Pool, garden and house far larger and even more lovely than they appear in the photos.
    Owners could not be nicer.

  • Fantastic villa

    on 15/09/2022

    Just returned from an amazing 2 weeks at Primrose. Beautiful house and well equipped. 2 outside terraces to dine at with a great pool. Couldn’t have asked for better and the sun shone. Friendly, helpful owners who live on site. Villa is close to the lovely town of Bergerac and the surrounding area. Will definitely be back.

  • Brilliant! Could not have asked for anything more

    on 30/08/2022

    All I can say is wow! The villa was amazing - the pool was a good size, the bedrooms and living space were massive and everything was super clean. The owners were two of the kindest people we have met and so helpful. The villa is secure and the grounds are massive and well kept. We have not felt this relaxed in a long long time - will definitely be coming back!

  • Excellent

    on 11/08/2022

    Primrose provides excellent accommodation and is complemented by luxury facilities inside and out. The pool area and eating areas are particularly pleasant and no review would be complete without mention of the caring and considerate hosts.

  • It couldn't have been better!

    on 27/07/2019

    The villa was just amazing and the host was very friendly. Also, the location is only 15-20 minutes walking distance fron the center and all its supermarkts and nice restaurants.

  • Un très bon séjour !

    on 19/06/2018

    Nous vous remercions pour votre hospitalité lors de notre séjour à Primrose. Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour à Bergerac et dans la région et nous avons particulièrement apprécié la maison, la piscine et le jardin. Sheila et moi sommes toujours inquiets que notre fils, Gareth, passe un bon moment et il a beaucoup aimé la maison, la piscine et la terrasse qui étaient facilement accessibles pour lui et en sécurité, ce qui nous a aussi fait nous sentir heureux et en sécurité. Nos amis, Gary et Sandy ont également passé un moment fantastique et nous nous sentons tous très détendus après nos vacances. Merci encore !
