This charming holiday home in Le Périgord Noir is tucked between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers and near some of the loveliest scenery in the region.

Spacious grounds provide a private and peaceful setting with views across woodlands and fields from the sheltered terrace overlooking the gated and heated pool. There is plenty of outside space for exploring, running on the grass or simply sitting peacefully beneath one of the many trees.

This is a traditional Périgourdine house, comfortably furnished and full of character with decorative wood burners and terracotta tiled floors in the living and kitchen areas. Pour a glass of Merlot, relax on the sofa and admire the stone walls and beamed ceiling of the homely living room. As well as two shower rooms there is the additional luxury of a bath on the ground floor and youngsters will love the upstairs bedroom beneath the eaves.

The Dordogne is a fascinating region filled with châteaux, delightful medieval villages and an incredible number of prehistoric caves and drawings. Black truffles and goat’s cheese are specialities here along with fantastic wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadelle and Chenin Blanc. The whole region offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as riding, tennis, hiking, mountain-biking, golfing and fishing, not to mention leisurely canoeing along the Dordogne river.

There are just so many exquisite villages and towns to explore. Limeuil, just 5km away, is one of the most beautiful villages in France with its cobbled streets winding upwards through pretty houses and gardens. Travel further along the Vézère valley to the market town of Le Bugue and explore its winding streets and riverside position after visiting its Tuesday and Saturday markets.

Slightly further afield, Domme is another one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, high over the Dordogne river with a system of caves beneath the main square. More spectacular caves and prehistoric drawings can be found at Les-Eyzies-de Tayac-Sireuil and the world famous Lascaux caves in Montignac.

It’s worth taking a day trip to one of the four famous towns which provide a boundary to the area. Sample the delicious black truffle in Périgueux, visit the famous Maison de Vins in Bergerac and marvel at medieval Sarlat and Monpazier.

You will find Le Bois Ambré in four hectares of grounds near a tiny village in Le Périgord Noir, next to a winery, tucked between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers not far from some of the loveliest scenery in the region.

Another village is just 2km away with its own village swimming pool, Saturday night markets in the height of the summer, fresh bread from the traditional fire oven and a popular restaurant for that special evening out.

The beautiful Dordogne, between the Loire Valley and Pyrénées mountains, contains a mixture of prehistoric artefacts, fairy-tale medieval castles and contemporary delights such as food, wine and glorious landscapes.

Limeuil (5km) has been classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France with its cobbled streets winding upwards through pretty houses and gardens. For a wonderful view over the village and the confluence of the rivers below, visit Les Jardins Panoramique. Travel further along the Vézère valley to the market town of Le Bugue (7km) and explore its winding streets and riverside position after visiting its Tuesday and Saturday morning markets.

Still on the lovely Vézère river is the picturesque little village of Campagne (10km). If you walk up the steep path to the graveyard you will be rewarded with views of the steeply pitched Périgourdine roofs below.

Slightly further afield, Domme (31km) is another of ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France’, high over the Dordogne river with a system of caves beneath the main square. More spectacular caves and prehistoric drawings can be found at Les-Eyzies-de Tayac-Sireuil (17km) and the world famous Lascaux caves in Montignac (38km).

Four famous towns provide a boundary to the area and are all worth a day trip. Périgueux (47km) is well known for its delicious black truffle, the stunning Cathédrale Saint-Frontand and the Vesunna Museum. Visit the famous Maison de Vins in Bergerac (42km) or take a trip on a barge for a leisurely meander through the city. Medieval Sarlat (62km) is one of the most renowned towns in the region and Monpazier(27km), built by King Edward I in 1285, is yet another of those ‘Plus Beaux’ French villages.

With so many places to visit, don’t forget that this whole region also offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as riding, tennis, hiking, biking, golfing, water sports and fishing as well as canoeing along the Dordogne river.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Children will love the Dordogne where there is just so much to explore - pretty villages and towns, local markets, fairy tale castles, parks and prehistoric caves not to mention the gorgeous rivers.

There’s paddling at beautiful Limeuil at the confluence of the Dordogne and Vézère rivers or visit the Parc de Loisirs de Neufont (35km) with its 11 hectares of woodland, 4 hectares of lake, fishing, safe swimming, café and beaches. There’s also a lovely river beach on the Dordogne just north of Le Buisson-de-Cadouin, just a few minutes by car, where canoe hire is also possible.

The Grotte de Bara Bahau is a cave on the edge of Le Bugue, once used for hibernating bears! You can even see where they filed their nails at the far end, the marks later assimilated into a series of engravings of wild animals made by prehistoric man.

Be enthralled by the “Cathedral of Crystal” at Gouffre de Proumeyssac, a huge cave with a collection of wonderful stalactites. When visitors arrive at a high point in the cave, lights are turned off and a musical light show commences.

The Aquarium du Périgord Nord at Le Bugue provides an escape from prehistoric man and has an alligator park for that extra frisson. While you are in Le Bugue, hire a colourful canoe for a few hours and paddle away from town to enjoy tranquil river views.  

To let off steam afterwards, Jacquou Park (16km) is an amusement park just north of Le Bugue with mini farm, water park, slides, swimming, paddling, café and picnic area.
