Overview

Exclusive Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Perched on a hill among the vineyards, this villa in the Dordogne will excite travellers looking to commune with the region’s terroir. The sloping garden overlooks the rolling green countryside of Saint Antoine de Breuilh, a tiny hamlet with enormous charms. Inside the villa, you’ll love the simple, homey feel: the rough-hewn walls, tile and wood floors, and original exposed beams have warmth and classic holiday villa character.

The private fishing pond is a feature you won't find elsewhere, and will delight any anglers in the group. Indeed, outdoor activities aren't hard to come by here - lovers of hiking, horseback riding, tennis, and golf will all find their passion in the surrounding area.

Wine is everything in this region. Follow the nearby Dordogne river 30 km east to Bergerac, where you’ll find both your local airport and the Maison des vins de Bergerac - a museum where you can learn all about the appellation. Put your newfound knowledge to use at the dozens of wineries surrounding the city. You’re also spitting distance from the famous Bordeaux region. A little more than an hour's drive will take you to Bordeaux (the city), where you can launch another unforgettable wine tour.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • This villa in the Dordogne features a private pool overlooking heavenly countryside.
  • The fishing pond less than a kilometer from the property will occupy fishermen for hours (or days).
  • Its pretty setting amongst vineyards and wine growing country - in fact the owner is a winemaker, and you can purchase her wine at a discounted price!
  • Everything is meticulously tended to and maintained, with the owner being as proud of her home as she is of her wine

What you should know…

  • The pool isn’t large, but is still perfect for a dip. In 2017 it will be upgraded to include heating!
  • The country setting means a car will help you enjoy the region best.

About the surrounding area of Laurel Rose
<1hr to Airport Rural Location Wine Tasting Fishing Outstanding Landscapes Outdoor Pursuit & Activities
Loading map

Without any shadow of doubt, the department of Dordogne is one of the most charming destinations in Aquitaine and perhaps, in the whole South of France.

Laurel Rose enjoys an excellent location in the outskirts of the small hillside village of Saint Antoine de Breuilh, surrounded by vineyards and forests and bordered by the Dordogne river.

The city of Bergerac, with its international airport, can be easily reached in about 40 minutes. A visit to the old town standing out for its medieval architecture, narrow streets full of local boutiques and good restaurant, is highly recommended. Here, you will also find the unmissable Maisons de Vins and will have the opportunity to take a tour along the Route de Vins de Bergerac.

The whole region is a true haven for nature and sport lovers alike offering a wide array of outdoor activities, from horse-back riding, to tennis, mountain-biking, golfing and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities.

On top of it all, several local villages with lovely weekly markets, excellent restaurants and historical attractions are all located within a short driving distance.

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 for?
Since 1990.

What was it about the property that you most fell in love with?

The calm, the seclusion, not having any neighbours, the surrounding vineyards, the comfort and the layout of the house.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

During the restoration of the house, we were surprised when we knocked down one of the walls, we discovered an old sink which we have kept. Also, the outside walls have some more exposed stones which stand out, the explanation is that when the original builders stopped for a break, they would mark the spot with an indicator stone which they simply built around when they resumed work.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?

A journalist from RTL.

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

Visit the local markets. There are lots of sporting activities nearby including tennis, horse riding, canoeing, hiking and golf.

Really see?
The town of St Emilion, Duras, Monbazillac, Bergerac, the tower of Montaigne, the vineyards of Montravel and the surrounding caves. Also, a little further is Sarlat, Bordeaux and Arcachon.

Really eat?
All products with fattened duck! Confits, magrets and foie gras. Try out the local restaurants and drink the owner's wine!

    Fantastic host. Fantastic spot. Whoever found this place deserves a medal.

  • Wonderful Holiday!

    Posted by Amanda on 16/07/2018

    I can only rate the property and people as the very best, together with location of course. We actually returned and moved house the very next day so it is a little hectic! I will be booking again! Thank you though for a thoroughly amazing service throughout.

  • We recommend!

    Posted by Lucie on 02/06/2018

    This is unquestionably a lovely house in a beautiful little spot overlooking fields and forest. There are neighbours - the owners are in the chateau just down the lane - but the setting is peaceful and tranquil. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped - the pool, lovely. Overall, a great place and wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
