COVID-19 Update: Change of Dates

Should Coronavirus related travel restrictions mean your villa holiday cannot go ahead then simply request a change of dates. Read full T&Cs here

This villa in the Dordogne may just change your perspective. Set on top of a hill in the rolling French countryside, just outside of Sainte Alvere, here you can escape completely if you wish. You’ll enter beneath a picture-perfect arbor, and inside the home exudes that same sense of rustic, holiday villa comfort.

The open first floor includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room, all with the same old stone walls. Take the wooden spiral staircase up to the bedrooms, where the farmhouse feel is even more apparent. Here you can hide away and read under peaceful, age-old wooden beams.

If your family holiday takes you exploring, the Dordogne region hides tiny villages everywhere, tucked between the hills. For more metropolitan pleasures a trip 40 minutes north to the Périgueux Market is worth it. Here you’ll find stunning variety of fresh produce, bread, cheese, even foie gras. While you’re there, visit the Vesunna Gallo-Roman Museum, where you can learn about archaeology in action.

The best part - you're in the Bergerac wine region! 35 km away you'll find not only dozens of wineries, but also the region's conveniently located airport. And don't worry - Bordeaux isn't far either!

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.

The villa benefits from a strategic location in a gorgeous hamlet in the heart of the exclusive Dordogne valley. The closest villages are Saint Alvere (4 km), and Tremolat (8 km).

Here, you will find a plethora of excellent restaurants and lively cafe's as well as sport facilities ranging from tennis and basketball courts, to golf courses, horse-riding centres and swimming pools.

The whole area swarms of tourist attractions and entertaining activities including wine-tasting tours, cruises down the Dordogne river, public gardens and many others.

The Bergerac airport is also conveniently located at approximately 34 km.

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.

    We are just back from our first holiday using Oliver’s Travels and we have been so impressed, that we wanted to drop you a quick line. Having trawled the internet for holiday ideas we’re delighted that we went with your company. From start to finish the service has been excellent and the holiday property: Le Bos in the Dordogne was an absolute delight. We loved it! The owner was fantastic. The villa had absolutely everything that one could hope for and the setting is idyllic. The weather was quite mixed with some big storms, but it did not curtail our enjoyment of the region.Having been so impressed by Oliver’s Travels I’m already searching for our next villa!!
