Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids

Le Miroir D'Eau is an exquisite French home with wonderful countryside views just over ten minutes from the stunning Dordogne river. With four beautiful bedrooms and a sparkling private swimming pool, this immaculate yet characterful house is everything you could hope for your holiday in this captivating region.

Set at the end of a charming hamlet of honey-coloured houses, Le Miroir D'Eau has been recently renovated yet still maintains so many traditional features such as the cool terracotta floors, wood beamed ceilings and thick stone walls. The light and airy living room allows guests plenty of space to relax or you can step through the French doors straight to the tranquil gardens. The kitchen is a chef’s delight with hand-made units and Corian worktops leading straight to the dining room, perfect for dining by candle-light with good friends and wine. The four pretty bedrooms each have their own bathrooms, all newly renovated, some featuring the finest travertine tiles.

Whether you are staying with friends or family, the landscaped gardens make outside living a joy on the lovely terraces, overlooking the swathes of lavender by the swimming pool or seeking solitude in the summer house. The summer kitchen with its sink, fridge and al-fresco dining table is the ideal place to savour the gastronomic delights you have picked up from one of the many local markets. 

This is a great location near both the Vézère and Dordogne rivers, an area full of pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, vibrant local markets, canoeing on the rivers and unspoilt views of stunning countryside. The nearest village of Sainte-Alvère is about five minutes drive away where you will find a restaurant and small supermarket or head to Le Bugue (7km) on the Vézère riverside which has a fantastic market on a Tuesday. The pretty Dordogne village of Limeuil and Tremolat are also within a short drive and enchanting places to visit.

Other magical trips out should include sampling the delicious black truffle in the city of Périgueux, heading east to the exquisite town of Sarlat or simply exploring some of France’s Plus Beaux Villages along the Dordogne such as La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle. Not forgetting the beautiful city of Bergerac with its unmissable Maisons de Vins.

Yet despite this prime position, it will be hard to leave your charming home and glorious gardens and pool, the perfect place to totally unwind and relax during your time in the Dordogne.

Location

About the surrounding area of Le Miroir D'Eau
Loading map

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. Both the Vézère and the Dordogne rivers offer great kayaking, canoeing and unparalleled views of the countryside.

The nearest facilities are in the pretty village of Sainte-Alvère (4km) where you will find a small supermarket, shops and restaurant. Nearby Le Bugue (7km) is a charming market town on the Vézère riverside with narrow winding streets to explore and beautiful buildings to admire. Visit on a Tuesday to experience the bustling market day, then hire canoes on the river or enjoy lunch in one of the many lovely restaurants.  The pretty Dordogne village of Tremolat is also within a short drive and another enchanting place to visit.

The Dordogne and Vézère rivers host a wealth of beautiful villages and towns, many of them classed as France’s Plus Beaux Villages such as glorious Monpazier, a bastide town dating back to the 13th century. To the north you have the sophisticated small city of Périgueux, famous for its amazing black truffles and to the east should visit Sarlat with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants. Not forgetting beautiful Bergerac to the west with its medieval architecture, narrow streets of boutiques and great restaurants as well as the unmissable Maisons de Vins.

Other magical day trips include the Lascaux caves, just outside Montignac and beautiful Limeuil, where the Vézère 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 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, golfing and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Children will love the nearby waterparks, visiting the Aquarium du Perigord Noir, 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.

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.
