Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome

Just north of the Dordogne, in wonderful gardens and woodland, is the delightful Petit Paradis. Sleeping up to 16 guests across the main house and three small gites, with a magnificent private swimming pool, this home is a wonderful place to relax in the glorious countryside of this stunning region.

The main house has been thoughtfully renovated by the loving owners who have managed to retain so much of the home’s original character whilst adding impressive contemporary features and modern comfort. The formal sitting room has exposed oak beams and a beautiful fire-place, contrasting with the modern yet warm tones in the fantastic cinema room, a great place for all ages to kick back and relax. In cooler evenings gather and meet in the convivial kitchen-diner-lounge, where great feasts can be shared whilst drinking fine wines well into the night in this traditional and comfortable setting.

There are four bedrooms and two impressive bathrooms in the main house whilst larger parties staying here will also have access to three pretty gites in the grounds, offering in total four further bedrooms in charming surroundings. Come together by the inviting swimming pool with its wonderful terrace space and outdoor lounge area, chat over a sundowner before spending summer evenings dining al-fresco in the glorious gardens.

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 town is charming Lalinde (10km) on the Dordogne river, with shops, restaurants and a fantastic market on a Thursday. The pretty Dordogne villages of Limeuil and Tremolat, with its Michelin starred restaurant, are also within a short drive and both 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.

With 1.5 hectares of rose filled gardens, lawns and woodland, this could be your true escape to wonderful a home. Yet with so much beauty and charm on your doorstep, it will be hard not to get out and explore this captivating part of Dordogne.

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.

You can drive to Lalinde (8km), a market town on the Dordogne river, where you can pick up your groceries, find pretty shops and dine in excellent restaurants plus don’t miss the excellent market on a Thursday morning. The beautiful village of Tremolat, with its Michelin starred restaurant, is also just a short drive away.

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 you 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. Older children will love the nearby waterparks, visiting the Aquarium du Perigord Noir and Jungle Golf 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.

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.
