In the calm Dordogne countryside, surrounded by vast and glorious gardens, is the delightful Le Cedre, the perfect family holiday home for up to 12 guests. In a secluded spot overlooking lawns and forests, it is hard to believe you are only fifteen minutes by car from the stunning city of Périgueux.

This country house is full of warmth and tradition, making it a homely and characterful place to stay where you can slow your pace down in the relaxing surroundings. Admire the wood floors, exposed beams and high ceilings as you sit around the large open fireplace in the living-dining room or head through to the cosy TV room to chill out with family and friends. The country kitchen is a wonderful spot for cooking up a feast using the very best local products from nearby markets and enjoy leisurely meals on the al-fresco terrace overlooking the woods.

Each of the five bedrooms, with their own bath or shower room, is styled unpretentiously with characterful features and pretty touches. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with its king size bed, spacious bathroom and wooden doors leading out to the wonderful decked balcony, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and pastries. The pigeonnier, a separate cottage available in the high season, just across from the courtyard, includes a sweet little kitchen corner and living area as well as one of the bedrooms.

Outside the gardens are tremendous with expansive lawns, plenty of space to play football using the goals provided, a basket ball hoop, table-tennis and table-football on the terrace and some lovely spots to just soak up the relaxing environment. Wander down to the large swimming pool where there is plenty of space to laze after a long swim or cooling dip.

It’s only a five minutes drive to the nearest village, where you can pick up your morning bread, grab a take away pizza or have a coffee in the local café. You’ll find a wider range of restaurants, including many high-end names, in the small, sophisticated city of Périgueux, only 13km away. Famous for its black truffles and foie gras, as well as being a city full of art and history, don’t miss the wonderful large outdoor markets on a Wednesday and Saturday.

Other magical trips out should include heading south-east to the exquisite town of Sarlat or simply exploring some of France’s Plus Beaux Villages along the Dordogne such as Limeuil, La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, all within driving distance. Not forgetting the beautiful city of Bergerac to the south-west with its unmissable Maisons de Vins.

After a day exploring the highlights of the Dordogne, Le Cedre is the perfect abode to return to as you sit on your terrace sampling the local delicacies and fine wines you have brought back from your travels.

Please note that outside the high season, the cottage is only available upon request. Contact our team at the time of booking for a tailor-made quote.

The Dordogne is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. The Dordogne river offers great kayaking, canoeing and unparalleled views of the countryside.

The village of Notre Dame de Sanilhac (3.5km) has a bakery, take away pizzeria and a café/restaurant whilst there is a large supermarket 6km away just off the road leading north to Périgueux.

The small, sophisticated city of Périgueux is only 13km away, famous for its black truffles and foie gras as well as being a city full of art and history. There are plenty of high-end restaurants here as well as a wonderful large outdoor market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

For a day out exploring you should head south-east to Sarlat with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and more amazing restaurants. Not forgetting beautiful Bergerac to the south-west with its medieval architecture as well as the unmissable Maisons de Vins.

Other magical day trips include beautiful Limeuil, where the Vézère river meets the Dordogne and you can paddle by the river beach or enjoy some fine views from Parc Limeuil after wandering through the delightful village. In addition, head to La Roque Gageac, Château de Beynac or Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, many of them classed as France’s Plus Beaux Villages, for a remarkable day out in the Dordogne.

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, golf and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Kids will love the waterparks, visiting the Aquarium du Perigord Noir in Le Bugue, exploring prehistoric caves and historic castles or even a magnificent hot air balloon ride across the stunning region. The more adventurous may enjoy go-karting just south of Périgueux or tree-top activities in the forests near Sarlat.

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.
