In a fantastic setting close to both Domme and Gourdon, Maison Elysee is a traditional Dordogne house full of character and modern comforts. Sit back in your private garden and gaze at the picturesque views before taking a dip in the heated swimming pool.

Set in a small village/hamlet, there is ample space in this authentic home with an open-plan living and dining space beneath the wood beams. Sit back on the comfy sofa and armchairs watching TV or reading books from the library, facing the grand decorative fireplace, and stroll through to the well-equipped kitchen to prepare feasts using the finest Périgord ingredients from local markets. You can choose to dine beneath the pretty lights of the dining area or under the shade of the lime tree outside.

Follow the main staircase upstairs to the double bedroom with a queen-size bed and a charming children’s bedroom with three colourful singles. There’s a third bedroom via the narrow stairs from the kitchen with a small double bed and cot, plus an attractive ground floor shower room, allowing Maison Elysee to sleep up to 7 guests.

Lounge on the poolside terrace looking back at the pretty grey shutters of your holiday home or admire the glorious Dordogne countryside around you. Despite its location within a small hamlet, guests have commented that the garden feels like a haven of tranquillity.

Within a 10 to 15-minute drive you can choose between Domme and La Roque-Gageac by the banks of the Dordogne, ideal for canoeing, kayaking and boat trips, or the honey-coloured houses of historic Gourdon. There is so much to explore from pre-historic caves and handsome market towns to impressive gardens and iconic French châteaux, not to mention a wealth of picture-perfect villages and vineyards dotted across the landscapes of the Dordogne and Lot regions of south-western France.

Maison Elysee is located in a small village/hamlet in the Dordogne, close to the Lot border. Around 10km from both Domme and Gourdon, it is perfectly positioned for visiting beautiful riverside villages, characterful towns and glorious French landscapes. The nearest amenities can be found in Salviac, Domme and Gourdon.

Indeed, Domme (10km) is one of the Dordogne’s most iconic bastide towns, loved for its picturesque setting and glorious views over the valley and river below. It is classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ and it’s wonderful to be able to explore the historic lanes and even visit the cave system underneath the main square. Down by the river you will find canoeing and kayaking opportunities in idyllic surroundings.

La Roque-Gageac (15km) is another famous Dordogne village, this time right by the edge of the river with its century-old houses and towering limestone cliffs above, yet again one of France’s listed ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Take a cruise on a traditional ‘gabarre’ boat along the Dordogne River to discover the fantastic scenery. The historic town of Sarlat-la-Canéda (23km) is also easily reached, a must for gastronomes with its enticing restaurants and bustling markets showcasing some of the fine cuisine of the Périgord Noir.

Heading over to the Lot department, Gourdon (10km) boasts a beautifully preserved old town with honey coloured houses, not far from the fascinating rock formations of Cougnac (11km) whilst the UNESCO World Heritage site, Rocamadour (39km) is less than an hour away for an incredible day out.

You could even drive south to the Lot River with picture-perfect villages including medieval Puy-l'Évêque (41km), artistic Saint-Cirq-Lapopie (61km) and the handsome town of Cahors (44km) with its vineyards producing some of the finest Malbecs in the world.

Back to the Dordogne, visit Les Jardins de Marqueyssac (19km) and the pretty Jardins d'eau de Carsac (22km) and find plenty more canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Dordogne River whether you venture north-west towards Limeuil (44km) or north-east to Souillac (30km) and beyond.

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

Maison Elysee is in a fantastic location for exploring the Dordogne and Lot regions with youngsters – there is all sorts to keep all ages entertained as you appreciate the beautiful landscapes around you.

The banks of the Dordogne River are a 10-15 minute drive away with idyllic places such as Domme and La Roque-Gageac waiting to be explored. Domme’s caves are a fascinating visit or simply head down to the riverside for canoeing and kayaking opportunities (both near Domme and further along the river towards Souillac). In the summer, traditional ‘gabarre’ vessels cruise along the Dordogne River from La Roque-Gageac.

The pre-historic caves at Grottes de Cougnac are also amazing, only a 15-minute drive away just north of pretty Gourdon or you may prefer to spend time visiting some of the mighty castles dotted across this region from Château de Fénelon (19km) to Château des Milandes (22km) and beyond.

To the north, visit the Réserve Zoologique de Calviac following hilly paths as you spot a variety of animals, or enjoy a range of tree-top trails at La Forêt des Écureuils, not far from the exquisite town of Sarlat-la-Canéda.

Reviews

  • Very happy with the beautiful house

    on 31/08/2023

    We are very happy with the beautiful house. Lovely swimming pool with warm water. And beautiful weather. We are completely satisfied.

  • Perfect

    on 14/08/2023

    We had a very nice stay. The layout of the house is perfect, everything was clean and fresh, comfortable beds and more than enough towels. We really enjoyed the space and the swimming pool of course.

    The house is very, very quiet. For us, this was perfect for nice walks with our dog on the quiet roads and paths. Entertainment was easy to reach by car; Sarlat, canoeing on the Dordogne, Domme, the Zadkine museum, caves and wines in Cahors... we had a great time.

    We found the region beautiful and hospitable, a return is certainly a possibility!

  • Incredibly beautiful

    Created on 18/06/2023

    Incredibly beautiful house. Never rented a house so complete. Fast response from the landlord. Quiet place, but lots to do within short distances. View is beautiful. Highly recommended!

  • Beautiful!

    on 24/05/2023

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maison Elysee. Wonderfully large, quiet and beautiful pool in a beautiful setting!

  • Complete tranquility

    Created on 30/09/2022

    Maison Elysee is a wonderful house to spend a holiday if you like complete tranquility.
    It is located in a small hamlet, but with a 15-minute drive you are in Gourdon on one side and the Dordogne on the other.
    The house is equipped with everything you could need, has charm and stays nice and cool when it's hot outside.
    The swimming pool and the large garden are nice places to relax.
