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.

  • Beautiful swimming pool

    on 07/07/2023

    We stayed for 2 weeks in June 2023. Great house where you lack nothing with a beautiful swimming pool. There were many beautiful sights in the area. We had a great holiday.

  • Lots of privacy

    Created on 20/06/2023

    Wonderful place with lots of privacy. Clean and spacious house with nice pool.

  • Even bigger than we expected

    Created on 24/07/2022

    The cottage is beautiful. Very clean and even bigger than we expected based on the photos. The owners are super nice and keep in touch with you via text if something is going to happen, such as a cleaning of the pool. They don't speak English but they understand you and that's how we managed with a little French. The environment is also great. You can find all kinds of activities within a radius of 20 minutes, really perfect. Have had a great holiday.
