Swim in a heated pool and relax on a vine-covered veranda at the Domaine des Champs, a large luxury villa in the Dordogne. Exposed beams and stone walls show the villa’s 400-year history, but you’ll find the modern conveniences you expect, including elegant modern bathrooms.

This family-friendly villa has two large salons with a home cinema, Smart TV with Netflix and a pool table, as well a “dressing-up” clothes and game console for the children. The grounds contain a fenced pond and all the outdoor activities kids enjoy. You’ll gather in the Mediterranean courtyard or the veranda, which has a bar, dart board, shaded dining area and barbecue. The property can accommodate up to 26 guests in both the villa and a separate apartment across a variety of rooms.

Just outside Montpon-Menesterol, the villa is a walk away from traditional French shops including the all-important boulangeries. With two supermarkets and a Wednesday morning market, you’ll have what you need to prepare meals in the fully fitted kitchen. Walk to the Chandos leisure park with canoeing on the river L’Isle, or drive to the Dordogne’s famed caves, fortified castles and vineyards.

The nearest airports to this French luxury villa are Bergerac (50 min) and Bordeaux (1hr).

With its prehistoric caves, fortified castles and picturesque villages the Dordogne valley has a lot to offer any visitor. Steeped in history going back thousands of years when Cro-Magnon man lived in the caves of the Périgord and left cave paintings in sites such as Lascaux and Les Eyzies, the region now boasts over 3 million visitors every year.

The diverse landscape of Atlantic coastline beaches boasts some of the best surfing in Europe, and Arcachon Bay is crowned by Europe's largest sand dune: the Dune de Pyla (or du Pilat), nearly 3 kilometres long, 500 metres wide and reaching 107 metres in height.

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.

    I hope all is well with you and the gang! I must say that we had a fantastic holiday. Loved your house and have been raving about it to everyone. Thank you so much for all your help and your company - we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and the family - your girls were a joy and our children had great fun. We hope to see you all again sometime!

  • The villa was beautiful

    Posted by Emma T on 08/12/2011

    The villa was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Lots of space for everyone. The owner was always available and helpful. I would recommend the property to friends and family. A car is essential for getting about.

  • A wonderful memorable stay

    Posted by Joanne H on 08/12/2011

    We stayed here for 1 week over August, 2 families with 4 children under 6 years of age. Tracy had thought of absolutely everything and more. We arrived at the villa around 8pm and after an 8 hour journey we literally dropped all our bags and jumped into the pool. It was lovely and warm and the evening sun set was a perfect start to our holiday. On exploring the house room by room we could not stop saying WOW the little touches that made our holiday: in one of the children rooms was a complete wardrobe of dressing up clothes, the books and games made the children settle in straight away. The linen and bath towels were new and fresh, the beds lovely to sleep in. The whole villa was very clean and kept to very high standards. The gardens were amazing, a football pitch, go carts for adults and the children! Complete with a huge trampoline and swings / slides. The swimming pool was fenced off and active with a pool alarm, the pool was brilliant, big enough for both families with lots of sun loungers and outside dinning. I could go on and on, what I will say is that if you decide to have your holiday here you will not be disappointed, in fact like us you probably wont even venture out, but of course book early as we indeed to visit this little bit of paradise year after year!!!! Thank you Tracy for a wonderful memorable stay.
