Kid-friendly features abound at this 18th-century villa in the Dordogne. Here the whole family will love their holiday spent high above the rolling French countryside. The play set in the garden, indoor games, and private child-safe pool will keep the kids entertained all day. Meanwhile, parents will adore the classic holiday villa feel: stone walls, wood-burning fireplaces, and simple, rustic furnishings.

Soak in the sun on loungers by the pool, or dine al fresco on the stone patio, overlooking the large (2500 sq m) garden. Or set off on a hike - there’s no shortage of beautiful paths here on the edge of the rural town of Grèzes. In nearby Terrasson-Lavilledieu (7 km), you’ll find the Gardens of the Imagination - a beautiful 13-part landscape installment presenting mankind’s transition from nature to city life. Also convenient to Terrasson are restaurants, cafes, a cinema, and supermarket.

Farther afield, a day trip to Périgueux (65 km) is worth your while. This medieval town hosts a daily market where you’ll find the delicacies of the Dordogne, most notably foie gras and truffles. If you fly in through Brive-la-Gaillarde (30 km), stay awhile! The locals exude "Gaillarde" - lusty, robust good humour.

The Dordogne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. It has lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns where fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist - it is also a great region for food lovers: all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie, canard and mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

There is nothing more one could wish for as the local area offers everything: stunning walks, medieval towns, superb restaurants, an abundance of beautiful countryside and weekly markets in local villages.

La Closerie enjoys a strategic location on top a hill in the outskirts of the small village of Grezes. Close by there are Cavagnac (3 km) and Terrasson (7 km). The old town of Terrasson is lovely, with a large church, caves and  Les jardins de l'imaginaire: this is large garden on the heights of Terrasson. The center boasts many wonderful restaurants offering local delicacies and artisan shops selling hand crafted jewellery and glassware.

Surrounding villages that you must visit to explore the local area include St Léon de Vézère, Saint Amand de Coly, Saint Genies (market on Sunday morning). Similarly, The Lascaux caves are an unmissable day out, there are also the Toutoirac caves and there are the Rouffignac caves as well.

The region also boasts a selection of magnificent chateaux including Chateau de Hautefort, Chateau de Castelnaud, Chateau de Sauveboeuf and Chateau de Losse.

Recommended cities include Sarlat (38 km) and Periguex (75 km).

A number of airports are located within a reasonable driving distance: Brive (30 km), Bergerac (113 km) and  Limoges airport 118 km.

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.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
We have owned the property for 4 years now.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The location - close to the nice city of Terrasson Lavilledieu, the quiet rural environment of Grèzes , the quality and authenticity of the building - reconstructed/adapted with the same techniques (stone walls and tiles) as the original construction from 1759. The private garden with, the swimming pool and the stunning view. The swimming pool with the pool cover and heating can be enjoyed from early May until the end of October (25°C).

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
Surely, I tried to understand more of the previous owner. The old lady living here until the 80’s was well perceived and the neighbours have a positive feeling about the house.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Enjoy the peacefullness of the garden/house/pool, visit the numerous historical landmarks and castles Hautefort, Beynac, etc..

Really eat?
Duck, foie gras, truffle du périgord, enjoy the wines of the area, go to the market.

Really see?
Visit the old Terrasson-and plan some lunch there, go down the river Vézère in canoe, visit Montignac, Sarlat, Brive.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?

In July August go to one of the ‘marché des producteurs’ in the evening for dinner.
Also go and admire the village of Saint-Genies and the ‘toits de lauzes’ ( Roof made of flat stones) Possibly on a Sunday morning at the market.

    Hi Oliver's Travels
    We had a great trip!

  • Amazing!!!

    Posted by Adriana and Matt on 16/05/2018

    We have spent a lovely week here, enjoying the idyllic location. The swimming pool with its views is fantastic. Close to lots of lovely places to visit. We will definitely be returning.

  • If only the weather was as good as the Cottage

    Posted by Susan on 26/09/2017

    The cottage was comfortable and well equipped - the pool was covered and heated so possible to use in bad weather - unfortunately we had quite a bit of rain. The owner was responsive to queries and thoughtful - arranged to have the pool heating turned up and clean sheets and towels for our second week - which should be a given but often isn't. There was a lot to see and do in the area. Shame that we couldn't make more use of the BBQ and the terrace.

  • Super Holiday Home within a Great Location

    Posted by Susan & Brendan on 22/09/2017

    We have found the house very comfortable and it was a great to have access to the heated pool. There is lots to see in the area, so we’ve enjoyed Terrasson, Sarlat, Perigueux, Brive, Montagnac and Hautefort as well as some some gerogeous gardens.

  • Great Stay

    Posted by The Napier's on 17/07/2017

    We very much appreciated the tranquillity, wonderful pool & view! We sat out until 11pm just to enjoy our surroundings and relax. We hope to return, as there’s lots to do.

  • Wir kommen wieder

    Posted by Klaus N. on 03/10/2016

    Wir waren zwei Wochen dort. Sehr schönes sauberes Haus. Bestens eingerichtet und ausgestattet. Highlight: der Pool....... Die Gegend ist sehr ruhig. Man kann total entspannen. Wenn es mal ein Problem ( was nur einmal vorkam ) gab, ist auch gleich ein Ansprechpartner vor Ort gewesen. Auch die Beiden sind sehr nett und behilflich. Wir kommen wieder.

  • A gorgeous farmhouse in a spectacular position

    Posted by Talia and family on 03/10/2016

    This lovely, clean, large and cool farmhouse is in a spectacular position overlooking green fields and far off villages. From the pool it feels like you can see forever! We stayed for 5 weeks and felt so at home that we didn't want to leave. The kitchen is fully equipped for your own French home cooking (!) but the restaurants in nearby Terrasson are fab too. We loved how we really felt we had privacy and the feeling of getting away from it all, while also being only 10 mins from shops and 4 supermarkets!! Our children loved the pool and outdoor space, and our family meals out on the terrace, looking out over the hills, will be remembered for a long time. Thank you Jean and Cecile for sharing your gorgeous house with us! Talia and family, New Zealand.

  • Si le Périgord vous tente, vous savez désormais où vous héberger !

    Posted by Alexandre C. on 29/09/2016

    Très belle maison perchée sur une colline offrant une vue magnifique sur la vallée et le pays du Périgord. La maison en forme de L est dans un très bon état, bien rénovée et bien équipée. Le jardin permettra aux enfants de se défouler et la piscine (sécurisée et avec abri) est parfaite pour se relaxer après une longue journée passée à découvrir les charmes et beauté de cette région au patrimoine culturel et gustatif très riche. Si le Périgord vous tente, vous savez désormais où vous héberger ! (Alexandre, Bruxelles).

  • Un endroit idéal

    Posted by Noah, Biniam, Dominique et Patrick on 24/08/2016

    Magnifiques paysages, endroit idéal pour se retrouver en famille, ressourcement assuré. Calme et cocoon à souhait Idéal pour les gourmets, et les gourmands Bref de vraies vacances. Retour obligatoire.

  • We could not have been more delighted

    Posted by Stokkie on 10/08/2016

    Our stay at Les Charmes de Grèzes was wonderful. The location, the property, the view and of course the wonderful pool. We could not have been more delighted. The space of the house was large although truthfully we spent all of our time either outside on the terrace or in the warm pool! Highly recommend this great place for a great holiday. The surroundings are of course superb... Scenic, culinary and with activities for all ages.

  • Five wonderful weeks!

    Posted by Talia, Mike, Charlie and Poppy on 05/08/2016

    We have spent 5 wonderful weeks and have done a lot of exploring (Sarlat, canoeing on the Dordogne, fireworks at Terrasson for the Bastille Day, Jardins de Marqueyssac etc. ) and a lot of swimming. We have loved the space in the house, had everything we needed to cook and be comfortable, It feels like home now and we are sad to leave! Thank you Jean and Cecile for the use of your beautiful house, it has really made our French experience!

  • A lovely holiday

    Posted by The Webb Family on 19/09/2015

    Lovely, relaxing holiday, beautiful countryside, lots to do. Chateau Musee de Sauveboeuf particularly worth a visit. Look forward to coming back again.

  • Traditional house in a fantastic position

    Posted by Helen and Chris W. on 16/09/2015

    Comfortable traditional Perigord house in very quiet location. Helpful owners. Great pool (with a sliding roof) with views across the hills to the Massif Central. Lots to do in the area - would particularly recommend Chateau de Sauveboeuf which has the most amazing museum of prehistoric artifacts. Nearby Terrasson is beautiful and has everything needed including good restraurants and market. We had a wonderful time and very much enjoyed the comfortable house and lovely garden. The pool was fantastic and we loved the fact that the cover ensured that it was always beautifully warm.
